KEY BISCAYNE (AP) – Serena Williams’ bid for a record sixth Key Biscayne title ended Tuesday night when she lost in the quarterfinals of the Sony Ericsson Open to former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, 6-4, 6-4.

Wozniacki served well and was content to keep the ball in play, using her retrieving skills to extend rallies until Williams would make a mistake. Williams hit 34 winners to 12 for Wozniacki but also committed 36 unforced errors to the Dane’s 13.

Williams was playing in her first tournament since January after being sidelined by a left ankle injury.

Wozniacki, seeded fourth, advanced to the Key Biscayne semifinals for the first time, and she has a shot at her first final berth of the year. She had lost her previous three meetings against Williams.
