Roger Federer vs Chung Hyeon LIVE stream: How to watch Australian Open semi-final online

"When you're hurt, you say all sorts of stuff", Wozniacki said after becoming Denmark's first grand slam singles champion with a captivating 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-4 win over Simona Halep on Saturday night.

"To be here today is a dream come true". She won an ITF singles title the next year before breaking into the top 100 in 2007. "Are those tears? Yup they are", Williams said, with Wozniacki sobbing after ending a long wait to win her first Grand Slam title.

Halep went over on her ankle in the first round against Destanee Aiana, before saving match points in epic contests against Lauren Davis and Angelique Kerber.

"I'm just waiting for the question, When are you going to win the second one?", she laughed. "I think both of us were very exhausted in the end", said Wozniacki, 27, who recorded her fifth - and most important - victory against Halep in seven career meetings.

Canadian billionaire couple targeted, police confirm
January 26, 2018: Toronto police say the Shermans were targeted and their deaths are ruled a double-homicide. Police at the time called the deaths suspicious , but said there were no signs of forced entry.

"It was an incredible match, an incredible fight".

Wozniacki gave a special mention to her father Piotr, who had coached her since she was seven years old. I played many times, yeah, like you said.

"For sure. I was really exhausted. This tournament meant a lot for me". I'm sure we'll have many matches in the future. In the end, she just ran out of steam. I'm really happy and proud of how I've managed to turn things around when things weren't going my way and keep it up whenever it was going my way. "I'm sad that I couldn't make it the third time, but maybe the fourth time will be with luck".

Wozniacki led 2-0 and 3-1 but both times Halep battled back and, when she broke for 4-3, the momentum seemed to be with the top seed. Both were playing remarkably throughout the game but it was Wozniacki who had the last laugh as Halep started struggling with high blood pressure.

Kidnapping victim killed in Federal Bureau of Investigation raid
The victim was abducted from his home Wednesday in Conroe, Texas, a suburb 40 miles (64 km) north of Houston , the paper reported. After he was arrested, Cunningham told authorities that Valladares was being held at Heath's house, according to court records.

Asked how she had battled through the tiredness, Wozniacki said: "I was thinking: 'If I am exhausted right now, I know one of my strengths is my speed, obviously my fitness". "I couldn't have scripted it any better".

The Dane, who also took the world number one ranking from Halep, prevailed in two hours and 49 minutes.

Though Halep was also up by a break and serving at 4-3 in the third set of Saturday's loss to Wozniacki, she doesn't blame herself for faltering this time. I think it will be a very close match where the finest margins will decide.

"I'm just taking a second here to hug Daphne [trophy]". "I had a tough period where I had a few injuries". But, yeah, I'm really sad I couldn't win it.

Jobless rates across upstate now top those of US
