Wozniacki eases into 2nd round at Australian Open

Top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki made light of concerns over a wrist injury to beat Anastasia Rodionova of Australia 6-2, 6-1 in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday.

Wozniacki hurt her left wrist in a quarterfinal loss at the Sydney International last week, but the injury didn't appear to trouble her against Rodionova.

Wozniacki is seeking her first Grand Slam title and must reach at least the fourth round at Melbourne Park to hold on to her top ranking.
