Melbourne: Former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki has rallied from a set and 3-0 down in the decider to win her first-round match the Australian Open 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 to Sabine Lisicki of Germany.

The 10th-seeded Danish player only hit 12 winners to 45 for Lisicki, but the big-hitting German also made 57 unforced errors to just eight for Wozniacki.

Wozniacki won the last six games of the match.

Wozniacki's form coming into the Australian Open wasn't encouraging — losing in the first round at the Brisbane International and the second round at Sydney.

She was the top-seeded player last year at Melbourne Park before losing in the quarterfinals.

On Monday, her golfer boyfriend Rory McIlroy signed a lucrative multi-year contract with Nike.
