Wozniacki, the defending champion, bounced back from her third-round exit at Roland Garros to cruise into a second-round match against either Angelique Kerber or Karolina Pliskova.

Sixth seed Simona Halep of Romania struggled at first against Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova, the pair splitting the first two sets in tie-breaks before Halep turned on the style in the final set to win 6-7(5) 7-6(4) 6-0.

Fourth seed Lucie Safarova also came through a three-setter against qualifier Johanna Konta to win 4-6 7-5 6-3 in a match that lasted over two and a half hours.
