PinExt Wozniacki through, Roddick out of China Open

Defending champion and world no.1 Caroline Wozniacki battled her way through the first round at the China Open in Beijing when she beat Lucie Hradecka of Czech Republic 3-6, 6-0, 7-5.

“It wasn’t a pretty match, but I’m through and that’s what’s most important.” was Wozniacki’s answer to what she though about the match.

In the men’s draw, former world no.1 Andy Roddick couldn’t find his form as he went out to South Africa’s Kevin Anderson 6-4, 7-5. He’s had quite a few first round losses this year and when a journalist asked him after the match whether he was contemplating to retire at some point, his hit back: “I think you should retire,” said the American.
