Wozniacki wins second round match 6-1 6-1 over Soler-Espinosa

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki opened with a strong showing at the Family Circle, defeating Silvia Soler-Espinosa 6-1, 6-1 on Wednesday for her sixth straight victory here.

Wozniacki only entered the tournament Saturday when a scheduled mission trip to Haiti with boyfriend Rory McIlroy was postponed. The 2011 Family Circle champion didn't show much rust from her last-minute decision to play. She broke Soler-Espinosa twice to win the final five games of the opening set.

Wozniacki continued to use her big serves -- she took a 3-1 lead in the second set on a 111 mph ace -- to keep Soler-Espinosa on the defensive and wrapped up the match in 59 minutes.

Past champions Samantha Stosur and Venus Williams play later.

World No. 1 Serena Williams won her opening match here Tuesday.
