Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki is on the verge of a very memorable couple of weeks.

If she wins Pan Pacific Open on Saturday - and reaches at least the quarter-finals in Beijing next week, she could overtake Serena Williams as world number one.

Wozniacki taking on Victoria Azarenka in Friday's Pan Pacific Open semi-final in Tokyo.

No problems in the first set against Azarenka as she showed the sort of form that had given her a 22-2 record since Wimbledon.

Wozniacki, easily taking set one, 6-2.

It was a different story in the second. Wozniacki, began to make unforced errors...and took out her frustration in a couple of ways. First, a nice boot to the ball. Then, slamming her racket in disgust.

The set would reach a tie-break, and there Azarenka sealed the set with a 7-3 win in the tie-break as Wozniacki's return goes long.

In the decider Wozniacki raced out to a 5-0 lead in the third set before the eighth-seeded Azarenka closed the gap to 5-4. The Dane held serve and won when Azarenka returned long.

Two hours and 51 minutes it took for the top seed to oust her good friend, the eighth seed 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-4.
