Wozniacki Breezes Past Konjuh

Caroline Wozniacki has become the first to progress to the round of 16 at Wimbledon with a comprehensive 6-3 6-0 victory over 16 year old qualifier Anna Konjuh. Konjuh started the match off well but was unable to sustain an acceptable level for long enough. Wozniacki was as solid as ever, hitting just 4 unforced errors in the entire match.

Konjuh was very competitive in the early stages of the opening set, she was the one making all the plays. Both ladies were able to save multiple break points in the opening set. Mid-way through the opening set the score was tied at 3-3. From here the Dane would take control of the match. In the seventh game Konjuh had two break point chances. Wozniacki would hold in what would turn out to be the turning point in the match. Wozniacki would break in the eighth game to give herself the chance to serve for the set. Seemingly cruising at 40-15, Konjuh went on to win three straight points to bring up break point. Wozniacki got herself out of trouble with her first ace of the match, going on to take the set 6-3.

The final set was a walk in the park for Wozniacki. She never really looked like losing a game, taking the deciding set 6-0. Konjuh became a bit too tentative in the second set, she managed just 3 winners compared to 16 in the opening set. Another good result for Wozniacki as she continues to gain momentum heading into the second week.
