Former WTA world number one Wozniacki had only limited turnaround time to adjust to what many feel is a faster court in the emirate compared to last week`s venue.

“Unfortunately I didn`t have a bye which I would have loved right now. Anyway, I`m through to the next round. I`m not gonna complain. It`s all right. I`m just gonna grind it out,” the Dane said.

“It could have had an easier first round, I was really pleased with how I was able to just stay focused out there from the beginning. It`s much different conditions here. The ball is flying. The court is faster than in Doha.

“I didn`t really know how I was going to play to start off with. Generally, I was pleased with my game.”

Olympic champion Monica Puig ignored back pain to defeat Yaroslava Shvedova 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 to reach the second round.
