The fifth seed Wozniacki dropped the first set against the Russian 6-4 but won the next 6-0 despite having a long rules debate with the umpire and a line judge after being charged with a foot fault.

She took the final set 6-3 to set up a semi-final meeting with American surprise package Jamie Hampton.

Hampton, who had to qualify for the event, continued her superb run in East Sussex with a 3-6 7-6(1) 6-4 victory over Lucie Safarova.

Second seed Li Na suffered a surprise defeat though as she lost 7-6(4) 6-3 to Heather Watson's conqueror Elena Vesnina.

Vesnina will play Yanina Wickmayer in the last four after the Belgian upset sixth seed Maria Kirilenko 6-2 1-6 7-5.
