“I had a strict game plan and stuck to it. That was the key,” said Petkovic.

World number one Caroline Wozniacki went out of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami with a 7-5 3-6 6-3 fourth-round defeat by Andrea Petkovic. An out-of-sorts Wozniacki dropped the first set having squandered three set points with the score at 5-4. But the Dane dug deep to clinch the second 6-3, before Petkovic held her nerve to serve out the final set by the same margin.

“I had a strict game plan and stuck to it. That was the key,” said Petkovic. Wozniacki struggled to settle into any kind of rhythm as her German opponent forced her into a string of unforced errors. Wozniacki, looking to become just the third player to win both the Indian Wells and Miami Open titles back to back, struggled with her forehand throughout. Petkovic saved 12 of 17 break points and eventually held firm to record her first win against a world number one. “I feel great and I’m still caught up in my emotions,” said a beaming Petkovic. “Sometimes it’s difficult to stick to a game plan, especially against an opponent as mentally tough as Wozniacki, but I was able to today.”
