Woz does a Lazarus in Oz

Dane survives two match points on way to epic comeback

It was tough for Caroline Wozniacki in the second round of the Australian Open, but she managed it in the end … barely.

Playing against Jana Fett, the world number 119, Wozniacki was forced to sweat out two match balls after finding herself 1-5 down in the third set to the Croatian.

The Dane survived and then mounted an epic comeback, reeling off six games in a row to win 3-6, 6-2, 7-5 and a place in the third round.

“I don’t know how I did it. I’m just relieved to be through. I battled for every point and never gave up. I was rewarded for that today,” Wozniacki told Eurosport.

Fantastic opportunity
Wozniacki will face either Kiki Bertens (the Netherlands) or Nicole Gibbs (USA) in the third round.

With a number of top seeds unable to play in the Australian Open, the second-seeded Dane has an outstanding chance to win her first Grand Slam.
