Wozniacki advances to 3rd round at Australian Open

Caroline Wozniacki defeated Donna Vekic of Croatia 6-1, 6-4 on
Thursday to advance to the third round of the Australian Open.

Wozniacki played her 72-minute match during the hottest part of
the afternoon when the temperature at Melbourne Park peaked at 41
Celsius (106 Fahrenheit).

The now 10th-ranked Wozniacki was the No. 1 player in the world
here last year but faced criticism that she had never won a Grand
Slam.

She failed to change that in 2012, losing in the quarterfinals
at Melbourne Park, the third round at the French Open and the first
rounds at each of Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
