The 19-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko upset Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4 on Friday night to reach the semifinals at the Volvo Car Open.


"Yeah, it feels amazing," Ostapenko said. "I just knew before the match that I have to stay aggressive all the time and still be consistent. And I tried not to step back, just to be like — play in the court all the shots. And I think that's helped me today."


"I really tried my best out there," the Danish star said. "I was trying to grind everything down. I tried to change the pace when I had the opportunity, but I mean, if she played like this every day, then I mean she would be No. 1 in the world. You know, she really played well. She went for her shots. Everything was going in. She was hitting the lines. Everything that could go her way today was going her way."


In Saturday's semifinal Ostapenko will meet Lucic-Baroni of Croatia.
