Wozniacki outlasts Arvidsson
INDIAN WELLS, California - Agence France-PresseDefending champion Caroline Wozniacki brushed aside a shaky first set to come from behind and beat Sofia Arvidsson 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 in the Indian Wells tennis tournament third round.
Denmark’s Wozniacki, who won a half dozen titles last year, is still finding her way in 2012 and it showed March 12 as she struggled to hold serve against her fellow Scandinavian in a two hour, 35 minute night match.
It was an uphill struggle at times for the former world number one as Arvidsson came charging out of the gate, using excellent groundstrokes to seize control in some of the longer rallies in front of about 2,000 people at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
Wozniacki will play Ana Ivanovic in the fourth round.
