NEW YORK —A two-hour rain delay at the U. Devier Posey Jersey .S. Open didnt throw
Canadas Aleksandra Wozniak off her game. Wozniak reached the second round of the
Grand Slam tournament with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Romanias Alexandra Cadantu on
Monday. The 48th-ranked Wozniak, a quarter-finalist last week in a Dallas
tune-up event, needed little more than an hour to advance after losing four of
her last five opening matches at Flushing Meadows. The native of Blainville,
Que., made it to the third round in 2009. “Overall, it was the first solid match
for me here,” Wozniak said. “The first set went fast and then there was a long
bathroom break for her. “She started putting more balls in during the second
set. Im glad I stayed on top or her and won this one. It was nice that it went
so fast after the long rain delay. It was so crowded in the locker-room, the
lounge, the cafeteria.” Wozniak will next play good friend Lucie Safarova, who
beat American Melanie Oudin 6-4, 6-0. Wozniak swept the first set with ease in
less than half an hour against Cadantu, who suffered a 6-0, 6-0 first-round loss
to Maria Sharapova at the French Open this year. The second set was more
competitive, with Wozniak recovering from an early breakdown before winning the
match on a third match point. Wozniak fired ten aces and broke Cadantus serve on
five of seven occasions in the victory. “Im looking forward to the second round,
Im really focused,” Wozniak said. “Last week in Dallas was really hot and humid,
and it was pretty hot here, you really sweat a lot on the court. “But I got used
to it last week, everything feels good so far.” Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont.,
will start his mens campaign against Colombian Santiago Giraldo on Tuesday,
while doubles ace Daniel Nestor of Toronto and partner Max Mirnyi of Belarus
will open against Americans Steve Johnson and Jack Sock. T.J. Yates Jersey . Croatia had several
chances before substitute Jelavic scored in 63rd minute, but the hosts were far
from dominating. Captain Darijo Srna said that
