British number two Anne Keothavong picked up her first WTA Tour win in nearly two months as she defeated Melinda Czink in the first round of the WTA Copenhagen event.

Top seed and home favourite Caroline Wozniacki is also safely into the second round after beating Poland's Urszula Radwanska 7-6(4) 6-2.

British number two Keothavong had to come from a set down against Hungarian qualifier Czink before winning 4-6 6-2 6-3.

It halted a poor run of form for Keothavong who had been knocked out of Miami, Indian Wells, Kuala Lumpur and the qualifiers for Dubai without winning a match.

Her last WTA victories before arriving in the Danish capital came during her impressive run to the last 32 round of WTA Doha back in mid-February.

The 28-year-old will play second seed Angelique Kerber next after the German beat Frenchwoman Stephanie Foretz Gacon 4-6 6-2 7-5

Wozniacki will next play Pauline Parmentier of France, who beat Russia's Anna Chakvetadze in her first round match.

Fourth seed Monica Niculescu, fifth seed Kaia Kanepi and sixth seed Mona Barthel all won too but seventh seed Ksenia Pervak was forced to retire a set and a game down against Johanna Konta.
