‘Near-perfect’ Wozniacki is looking to break her maiden at Wimbledon.

Caroline Wozniacki produced a near-faultless performance as she eased into the fourth round with a 6-3 6-2 victory over Australia’s Jarmila Gajdosova. Wozniacki, the world number one who is in pursuit of her maiden grand slam title, broke Gajdosova once in the first set and twice in the second to complete a routine win on Centre Court. The Danish 20-year-old made just five unforced errors in the match and will now face Dominika Cibulkova, who advanced with a three-set victory over 16th seed Julia Goerges. Competing in a women’s draw which features multiple grand slam champions such as Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters, Wozniacki still has much to prove. She is constantly being asked whether she can justify being world number one without having transferred her consistency from the WTA Tour – where she has won five titles this year – to the grand slam stage. But Wozniacki is going about her business at Wimbledon in solid fashion.

Maria Sharapova raced through to the fourth round at Wimbledon with a crushing win over Klara Zakopalova on Saturday. The fifth seed and title favourite had laboured to victory over Britain’s Laura Robson on Friday, when she was taken to a tie-break in the opening set and then proved unconvincing as she looked to close out the match. But aside from a blip early in the second set and 21 unforced errors, 24-year-old Sharapova was considerably sharper 24 hours later and had little trouble putting away her Czech opponent on Court Two in 78 minutes, which has been at the centre of the scheduling controversy at this year’s tournament. Unlike defending champion Serena Williams, who voiced concern that she was asked to play there while the leading men stayed on Centre and Court One, Sharapova looked to be in her comfort zone inside the 4,000-seat arena. She won 6-2 6-3, which was routine apart from when she slipped a break shortly after tying up the opening set.
