TOKYO (AP) Second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark rallied from a set down to beat qualifier Jarmila Gajdosova of Australia 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 Thursday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Pan Pacific Open.

The U.S. Open finalist broke Gajdosova three times in the third set at Ariake Coliseum and won with a crosscourt backhand. She will take on eighth-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain in Friday's quarterfinals.

"She played a great game and it took me a while just to get into it," said Wozniacki , who won the tournament in 2010. "I managed to pull through today and was a little bit lucky but also played some good points at important moments."
