Charleston (USA) – Invited to compete in the WTA 500 in Charleston, former world number 1 Caroline Wozniacki debuted with a very quiet victory. The Dane needed just 1 hour to beat the American lucky loser McCartney Kessler 6/1 and 6/0. The event is the only one of the season on har-tru (green clay) courts.

During her calm debut, Wozniacki led the winners statistics 18 to 4 and committed 13 unforced errors against 20. She won all 10 points she played at the net, managed six breaks and only faced one break point. “I tried to focus on my own game. I hadn’t played on clay for five years and I’m still trying to regain my ideal movement. But it all came very natural to me.”

Wozniacki was Charleston champion in 2011 and played in two other finals, the first in 2009 and the other in 2019, the most recent one she reached before stopping playing. The 33-year-old player spent three and a half seasons away from the circuit and returned in August last year. It currently appears in 126th place in the ranking.

“You can’t help but love this tournament, it’s very special. All tennis players love to play here. I hadn’t been here for some time. The main stadium is new. When I arrived, I didn’t know where the changing rooms and players lounge were. But it’s great to see how much this tournament has grown and to see so many children watching the games”, said Wozniacki, who now faces Ukrainian Anhelina Kalinina, her tormentor in Miami two weeks ago, in a match lasting more than 3 hours.
