Caroline Wozniacki reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final since 2012 with a stunning win against fifth seed Maria Sharapova at the US Open.

The 10th seed survived baking conditions at Flushing Meadows to prevail 6-4 2-6 6-2 and will now face Italy's Sara Errani in the last eight in Queens.

Former competition winner Sharapova was the only top-eight seed left in the bottom half of the draw after the first three rounds but 24-year-old Wozniacki franked her recent return to form - including a first WTA title of the year in Istanbul, a 16-3 record since Wimbledon and two near-wins over multiple major winner Serena Williams - with a hard-fought success.

"It means so much to me - it's been a bit up and down for me this year," said the former world number one and US Open finalist.

"It's a new year and I've gotten older, and hopefully a little wiser. I feel good. I feel comfortable when I play out there.

"The crowd was amazing today. It's just so much fun to play out there again on the big court."

The 2009 runner-up revealed training to run the New York City marathon in November had helped her combat the stifling conditions at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

She added: "I think it will help me a lot. Today was a tough battle out there. It was humid; it was hot; I had to change my dress.

"That rarely happens. It was just soaked. Definitely it's helping, because I felt fresh out there and I felt like I could keep going."

Elsewhere, Italy's 13th-seed Errani ended the run of Croatia's Mirjana Lucic-Baroni with a 6-3 2-6 6-0 win in the fourth round.

Caroline Wozniacki is currently priced 4/1 to win the 2014 US Open women's Grand Slam.
