6:46 pm on 24 January 2012

The defending champion Kim Clijsters is through to the semi finals of the Australian Tennis Open beating world number one Caroline Wozniacki in straights sets.

Clijsters won the first set 6-3 but had to work hard to win the second set 7-6 in a tiebreak.

The loss means Wozniacki, who's never won a grand slam title, will lose her number one world ranking.

Clijsters will play the world number three Victoria Azarenka in the semis.

Azarenka came back from a set down to beat Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, 6-7, 6-0, 6-2.
