Caroline Wozniacki opened her French Open with a straight-set victory over American Danielle Collins.
PARIS (AP) – Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki is into the second round of the French Open after a 7-6 (2), 6-1 win over Roland Garros debutant Danielle Collins.
The second-seeded Wozniacki, who claimed her maiden Grand Slam title in Australia in January, delivered a solid display punctuated by only a few mistakes to move past her up-and-coming American rival. Collins came to prominence in March when she reached the semifinals at Miami as a qualifier, but her recent results on clay have been more modest.
Wozniacki said having won a Grand Slam title helped her take a ”much more relaxed approach” to her match.
