CIBULKOVA 5-7 3-5 OSTAPENKO. A wonderfully placed ace concludes a supreme love hold for the No.12 seed. She's one game away from the semi finals. She's been quite magnificent up to this point, crunching 36 winners - 30 more than her opponent.

BREAK! - CIBULKOVA 5-7 2-3 OSTAPENKO. The Latvian comes out all guns blazing once more and has too much in her armoury for the Cibulkova defence. It's a break to 15 and the 12th seed regains the initiative.

SET! - CIBULKOVA 5-7 OSTAPENKO. Jelena nails two aces to conclude a love hold. She takes the first set in 45 minutes. Cibulkova has lost her first set of the tournament and needs to force more errors from the former French Open champion if she's to keep her semi final dream alive.

BREAK! - CIBULKOVA 3-1 OSTAPENKO. It's three games in a row for Dominika. She's been many observer's pick as the form player so far at the tournament and she's picking apart the Ostapenko serve at the moment.
