Easy wins for Masha, Ana and Caro in round one.

Ana powered into the second round of the Championships with an impressive 6-0, 6-1 win over American Melanie Oudin. The match began at 8.25pm local time and lasted just 48 minutes, as light threatened to fade.

Russia’s Maria Sharapova reacts...

Former champion Maria Sharapova moved into the second round at Wimbledon on Tuesday, winning an all-Russian match against Anna Chakvetadze 6-2, 6-1. The No. 52-ranked Chakvetadze managed to break once in the second set but was otherwise outclassed by her sixth-seeded opponent in just over an hour. Sharapova, who won the tournament in 2004 but hasn’t gone beyond the fourth round since 2006, is the only former champion in the women’s tournament other than Venus and Serena Williams.

Caroline Wozniacki made a strong start in her quest for her first Grand Slam title on Tuesday afternoon, fending off the two-handed strokes of Spain’s Arantxa Parra Santonja for a 59-minute, 62 61 victory. The last time Wozniacki took the lawns of the All-England Club, a fourth round match against Petra Kvitova a year ago, she suffered her worst loss of 2010, a 46-minute, 62 60 rout. But the No.1-ranked, No.1-seeded Dane had almost exactly the reverse result against Parra Santonja, losing serve in the opening game but kicking into gear quickly and rolling to victory. She had four errors. “The wind was blowing everywhere and I was throwing the ball up quite a few times, but I thought I actually served pretty well,” Wozniacki said. “There was also one point where I hit the ball and it almost didn’t go over, and then I hit the next one and it just flew. I just tried to adapt as well as I could today.” Wozniacki warmed up for Wimbledon with a title run at her home tournament in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was her fifth WTA title of the year (no one else has that many) – her 46 match wins are also the most on the WTA this year.
