Caroline Wozniacki will look to continue her domination of Ekaterina Makarova when they collide at the second round stage of the U.S Open on Wednesday. Wozniacki holds a 7-0 head-to-head record over Makarova, an incredible record given Makarova is a very dangerous opponent.

Wozniacki’s record over Makarova is very impressive. Wozniacki has won all 7 of their previous matches, 5 of those matches ended in straight sets. Their most recent encounter was back in Madrid in 2014, Wozniacki won 6-2 6-2. It’s hard to comprehend this head-to-head record because Makarova has the solid, aggressive game from the baseline with an ability to come forward that should really test Wozniacki. Makarova has been in great form during the lead-up to the U.S Open and I think she can make this match very competitive. However, I think it will Wozniacki who against gets the better of the Russian, Wozniacki’s game style clearly frustrates Makarova. I think this will be a good tournament Wozniacki.
