French Open: Laura Robson falls to Caroline Wozniacki

British number one Laura Robson went out of the French Open in the first round with a wayward performance against 10th seed Caroline Wozniacki. Robson, ranked 35th in the world, lost 6-3 6-2 in one hour and 11 minutes on Court Suzanne Lenglen. The Briton, 19, was widely tipped to cause a disappointment against the out-of-form Wozniacki, but the Dane was much the steadier. Robson’s attacking style was always likely to be more risky, but she paid for 39 unforced errors and double-faults at key times, at one stage shouting, “You’re playing into her hands!” “I think Caroline played really well and I thought she played smart,” Robson said afterwards. “She definitely knew what she wanted to do on the court, and generally I just wasn’t able to get into the match. My shots just weren’t firing as well as they usually are, so it’s disappointing.” Wozniacki, 22, had lost her previous five matches and did not exactly start in confident mood, but she was twice handed breaks with Robson double-faults.
