What Happened?

Top-seeded Wozniacki hangs on. Caroline Wozniacki was down a set and a break against sixth-seeded Francesca Schiavone, but fought back to earn a 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 victory and ensure she'd keep the No. 1 ranking in next week's rankings.

Federer, Djokovic to clash in semis. No. 2 Roger Federer coasted to a 6-1, 6-3, 6-3 victory over compatriot Stan Wawrinka, while No. 3 Novak Djokovic won 6-1, 7-6(5), 6-1 over sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych under the lights. Federer and Djokovic will meet Thursday for a place in the final -- a rematch of September's classic U.S. Open semifinal won by Djokovic in five sets.

Li back in Aussie Open semis. Ninth-seeded Li Na advanced to the Australian Open semis for the second straight year with a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Andrea Petkovic.
