Caroline Wozniacki shrugged off the disappointment of her early Wimbledon exit by battling into the second round of the Swedish Open in Bastad. Wozniacki did not have it all her own way against the world number 69 Alize Cornet of France, requiring one hour and 35 minutes to see off her opponent 6-4 6-4 in a keenly contested encounter.
Second seed Flavia Pennetta beat Australian qualifier Olivia Rogowska 6-2 7-5 and other victorious seeds included fifth seed Vera Dushevina and eighth seed Polona Hercog.
Sixth seed Iveta Benesova suffered a crushing 6-2 6-0 defeat to Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez of Spain. Sweden’s Sofia Arvidsson beat Andrea Hlavackova 6-1 5-7 6-4 and will next meet Wozniacki.
