Wozniacki has little trouble as Hantuchova revival goes on
Wednesday 22 June 2011
Top seed Caroline Wozniacki, contesting her third consecutive Grand Slam as world No 1, justified her lofty billing yesterday in beating the Spaniard Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-2, 6-1.
Wozniacki will doubtless have a tougher challenge against Virginie Razzano in the second round. The Frenchwoman dismissed Sania Mirza, the Indian wife of Pakistan's former cricket captain Shoaib Malik, 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. It was Razzano's first win since the death of her fiance from a brain tumour last month.
The 25th seed and former world No 5 Daniela Hantuchova is also in the second round, after overcoming Vitalia Diatchenko, of Russia, 4-6 7-6 6-3. The Slovak has slipped out of the world's top 20, but has hit some impressive grass-court form in recent weeks, reaching the final of the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, and beating both Li Na and Venus Williams at the Aegon International in Eastbourne. She also accounted for Wozniacki in the third round of the French Open, and could be one to watch here. Her next opponent will be the qualifier Marina Erakovic, a Croatian-born New Zealander.
