Caroline Wozniacki was able to control her nerves this time, reaching her first Australian Open final seven years after squandering a match point and losing in her only previous run to the semis at Melbourne Park.The No. 37-ranked Mertens lifted her intensity, holding her serve at love and then having two set points in the next game before Wozniacki eventually held in a serving game lasting 8 ½ minutes.Wozniacki dominated the tiebreaker, putting memories of her last Australian Open semifinal behind her -- she had match points against Li Na in the semifinal in 2011, but was unable to convert.
