Wozniacki saves set point against Tatishvili to advance


Top seed Caroline Wozniacki stormed through the first set of her second round match at the Australian Open 6-1 in just 28 minutes, but Georgian Anna Tatishvili had much more hitting to offer. In the second set, which was almost three times longer, the world No.1 found herself trailing 1-4, and at 4-5 she was on the brink of losing the set when Tatishvili had a set point. Wozniacki then evened the score and closed the match quickly to 6-1 7-6(4).
First serve was working exceptionally well for Wozniacki, who hit nine aces in the match and afterwards joked that she felt a little bit like John Isner. Next for the Dane is Monica Niculescu who beat Pauline Parmentier 4-6 6-4 6-1 in the second round.

Kim Clijsters, Li Na, Agnieszka Radwanska and Victoria Azarenka were all express. Clijsters took just 48 minutes to defeat Stephanie Foretz Gacon 6-0 6-1, Li needed 31 minutes per set to get past Olivia Rogowska 6-2 6-2, Radwanska beat Paula Ormaechea 6-3 6-1 in eight minutes over an hour, while Azarenka remained undefeated this season by rolling past Casey Dellacqua 6-1 6-0.

  1. All the top seeds looked in good form today. Hopefully we will get some more competitive matches in the third round. I’m particularly looking forward to Clijsters vs. Hantuchova, Jankovic vs. McHale and Azarenka vs. Barthel.
