Sharapova, Wozniacki lose just two games in Indian Wells second round


Second seed Maria Sharapova and fourth seed Caroline Wozniacki won their second round matches of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells 6-2 6-0, beating Gisela Dulko and Ekaterina Makarova respectively.

The 2006 champion Sharapova broke Dulko three times in each set en route to the victory. Simona Halep, who beat Petra Cetkovska 6-2 6-4, will be Sharapova’s opponent in the third round. They have never played each other so far.

Makarova, who played the quarterfinals of Australian Open this year, didn’t win a single service game in the quick loss to defending champion Wozniacki. Sofia Arvidsson, the 6-3 6-3 winner over Monica Niculescu, will be Wozniacki’s opponent in the third round. Arvidsson, 2-4 against Wozniacki in head-to-head, has recently won her second Memphis trophy. (photo: © Neal Trousdale)
