Wozniacki wary of Goerges

Wozniacki will face Julia Goerges after beating Karin Knapp 6-3, 6-0 in the first round at Roland Garros. Even though the 24-year-old has a 4-3 head-to-head record against Goerges, the German has beaten Wozniacki in their last two meetings on clay. 

"I have had a lot of tough matches against her in the past," Wozniacki told the official WTA website. "It's never easy playing against her. I'm just going to be ready and competitive. It's not going to be that much different from today's match – big serve, big forehand. So yeah, I'm just excited for it."

Wozniacki struggled early on in the match as she had to fight for more than half an hour to stay even at 2-2. But, upon taking a 4-3 lead, the Dane pulled away and dominated the remainder of the match. 

In the end, Wozniacki was glad to have only committed nine unforced errors against Knapp, while the Italian made 50 unforced errors. 

"Four games in or five games in we played like 40-something minutes. It's ridiculous," Wozniacki added. "It was really close from the beginning, a lot of deuces and advantages. She's playing really well. She won last week. So it was a tough first round, but nothing unusual from my other draws this year. I was ready and kind of excited – I knew the longer we played the better for me, so I didn't mind at all."
