Australian Open: after Osaka and Kerber, Wozniacki also loses

Caroline Wozniacki, former world No. 1 who came out of three and a half years of retirement last summer after having two children, was knocked down in the second round of the Australian Open by Russian qualifier Maria Timofeeva 1-6 , 6-4, 6-1 Wednesday.

Wozniacki, however, scored a set and, twice, a break in advance, in the second set (2-0), then the third (1-0). In vain.

If the 33-year-old Dane spent a round in Melbourne, Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber, both also ex-world No. 1 just returned from maternity, were eliminated from the start.

Now a mother of two young children, Wozniacki made her return to competition last summer and was immediately invited to the round of 16 of the US Open. She then did not play any more matches until the beginning of January.

Timofeeva, who is playing her first Grand Slam at 20, will face Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia (12th) or another young Russian qualifier, Alina Korneeva (179th at 16), for a place in the round of 16.
