Wozniacki vs. Halep in Australian Open 2018 final

Wozniacki vs. Halep in Australian Open 2018 final

For the second time in the tournament, Simona Halep faced match points and knew one mistake would mean an exit from the Australian Open and the likely loss of her No. 1 ranking.

For the second time in just over a week, she attacked rather than take the safe approach. The 26-year-old Romanian saved two match points and needed four of her own against 2016 champion Angelique Kerber before winning 6-3, 4-6, 9-7 in the semifinals.

Halep will face No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki in the final on Saturday, with one of them guaranteed to win a first Grand Slam title. The winner will also be No. 1 when the next rankings are released. Wozniacki, who beat Elise Mertens 6-3, 7-6 (2) in 1 1/2 hours in the first semifinal, hasn't held the top ranking in six years.

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Obviously a disappointment. What would you ascribe the loss to?

ANGELIQUE KERBER: I think, yeah, it was not my day, completely not my day today. Of course, matches are always different than practice, and I just can say that I was practicing a lot in the last few weeks and months.
Yeah, of course it's not the result, and I'm sad, but, yeah, I don't know. Yeah, match is always different.

Q. Can you talk a little bit about her game? She played very, very well and she's very young. What do you see in her?
