After trailing 5-1 in the third set, Wozniacki broke twice when Makarova served for the match.
Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark leaves the court after being defeated by Ekaterina Makarova of Russian Federation in their women's singles match on the third day at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Wednesday July 4, 2018. Wozniacki swished at the ball as it rolled gently towards her, intending to let off steam by thwacking it into the net, but only managed to tip it with her racket frame. She stopped short of blaming the insects for the defeat, but said that their appearance "was definitely a first for me".

Makarova then romped to a 5-1 lead, only for Wozniacki to storm back again. The Australian Open champion was in the driver's seat, it was her match to lose. The ants, it would turn out, would not be her biggest problem. The Russian displayed her grit, climbing out of holes with remarkable agility and keeping calm despite nearly choking in face of an all-guns-blazing Wozniacki. She strolled through her following service game to consolidate the break for a formidable 5-1 lead, but nerves seemed to affect the streaky Russian during the most crucial moments. But it was no cause to panic. That woman fought back from down a set, and then from down 5-1 and later down 5-4 and love-40 in the third to hold serve and remain in the match. The Dane had gone on lift the trophy.
The Russian is a veteran on tour with a highest ranking of 8 and has reached the last eight before.
