Wozniacki, Kerber off to fast start
- Wuhan Open
Sep 26, 2018-
World No 2 Caroline Wozniacki and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber eased through their opening matches at the Wuhan Open in China on Tuesday.
Australian Open champion Wozniacki, who received a first-round bye, was barely troubled by the 61st-ranked Swede Rebecca Peterson, winning 6-4, 6-1 to set up a third-round clash with Olympic champion Monica Puig, who romped past Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-2, 6-2. World No 3 Kerber has already qualified for next month’s Finals which will be held in Singapore and advanced after a knee injury forced Madison Keys to retire. The German looked set for a big win over the 2017 US Open semi-finalist and was leading 6-0, 4-1 when Keys could not continue.
