Wozniacki passes McHale Test

Caroline Wozniacki started off in flying colours as she baggled Christina McHale to win the first set in just 28 minutes. The difference between the two was clear, Wozniacki was the aggressive one of the two and McHale seemed to be error machine. McHale had 16 unforced errors to Wozniacki's 3 in the first set.

As the second set started, McHale cleaned her game and Wozniacki got error prone. McHale bread sticked Wozniacki to win the second set and force a decider. McHale had 7 unforced errors to Wozniacki's 14.

As the third set went started, both players went after each other, however, it was the break points that decided the third set. Wozniacki was 2 of 3 on break points, while McHale failed to convert either of the two chances she got, sending Wozniacki into the third round of Australian Open, where she will play Garbine Muguruza for a spot in the fourth round. The final score of the match was 6-0 1-6 6-2.

It was a sort of revenge and relief for Wozniacki to get the win, however, it should be an encouraging sign for McHale, who has not been the same player since she has returned to the tour after battling Mononucleosis.
