Wozniacki downs Stosur at Wuhan Open


Wuhan (China), Sep 27 (IANS) Former world No.1 Caroline Wozniacki extended her winning streak to six matches with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over No.16 seed Samantha Stosur at the WTA Wuhan Open tennis tournament here.

Just over 48 hours after winning her first title of 2016 at the Toray Pan Pacific Open, Wozniacki was back on court in Wuhan taking on former US Open champion Stosur on Monday, who had reached the French Open semi-finals earlier this year, reports Xinhua.

Still, the Dane looked sharp against Stosur, winning 73 percent of her first serves and converting five of six break point opportunities. Even against the Aussie's formidable serves, the Dane won half of her first serve points on return, following an aggressive pattern observed last week in Tokyo.

Wozniacki has shaken off the rusty form at the beginning of the season to embrace a hardcourt resurgence recently which saw her reach the US Open semi-finals.

Up next for Wozniacki is Czech youngster Katerina Siniakova.
