Wozniacki marches into Wimbledon second round

World number one Caroline Wozniacki raced into the second round at Wimbledon as she routed Spain’s Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-2, 6-1 on Tuesday.
Wozniacki took just 59 minutes to demolish the world number 105 on Court One and will play France’s Virginie Razzano for a place in the last 32.
The Dane was happy with the way she saw off Parra Santonja in difficult, windy conditions.
“It was my first match on grass and the wind was blowing everywhere. The conditions were pretty tough,” Wozniacki said.
“There was one point where I hit the ball and it almost didn’t go over the net and then I hit the next one and it just flew.
“I tried to adapt as good as I could and hopefully I’ll be ready for the next match.”
It was the perfect start to her challenge at the All England Club as Wozniacki seeks to silence the critics who claim she doesn’t deserve to be top of the rankings.
The 20-year-old lost her only Grand Slam final against Kim Clijsters at the 2009 US Open and many pundits insist Wozniacki’s presence at number one is down to the Williams sisters’ injury problems rather than her excellence.
She flopped again at the French Open recently, losing in the third round against Daniela Hantuchova, and has never looked a natural on grass at Wimbledon, where she has failed to make it past the fourth round in four attempts.
Wozniacki made a sloppy start as a series of wayward ground-strokes allowed Parra Santonja to break in the opening game.
But she steadied her nerves to break straight back and moved 3-1 ahead with another break after Parra Santonja completely miscued an overhead.
That was enough to take the first set and the Spaniard was swept aside even more emphatically in the second set as Wozniacki surged through.
