Wimbledon: Pursuing another bid for her first Grand Slam title, top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki made only one unforced error as she beat Virginie Razzano 6-1, 6-3 on Friday to move into the third round of Wimbledon.
The 20-year-old Dane was at the top of her game as she downed the 96th-ranked Frenchwoman in 1 hour, 6 minutes in sunny conditions on Court 2 at the All England Club.
Wozniacki, who extended her career record against Razzano to 5-0, took command of the match from the beginning and was never in trouble.
Razzano saved three match points at 5-2 down and another in the next game before Wozniacki hit a service winner into the corner to close the match.
"I served pretty well today and ... dictated quite a few of the points," she said. "I was happy about the game."
Wozniacki, who will next face Jarmila Gajdosova, reached the fourth round at Wimbledon the past two years but has never made it to the quarterfinals. Despite her No. 1 ranking, she has never won a major title, losing at the 2009 U.S. Open to Kim Clijsters in her only Grand Slam final.
Wozniacki leads the women's tour this year with five titles, but lost in the third round at the French Open to extend her drought at the majors. She is guaranteed to hold onto the No. 1 ranking at least until August.
The 28-year-old Razzano, playing in her 10th Wimbledon, had 20 winners, seven more than Wozniacki, but also 14 unforced errors. It was her second Grand Slam tournament since the death in May of her former coach and fiance Stephane Vidal from a brain tumor.
"It's unfortunate what's happened to Virginie," Wozniacki said. "The only thing we can do is go and support her and ask if she needs anything. On the court you want to fight and win, but off the court everyone's human."
In other matches Friday, defending champion Rafael Nadal was scheduled to play on Court 1 along with five-time titlist Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova. On Centre Court, Andy Murray was to face Ivan Ljubicic in the late match.
The biggest surprise of the tournament came Thursday when French Open champion Li Na was eliminated in three sets by Sabine Lisicki, a German wild card ranked 62nd.
