World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki met strong challenges from Alexksandra Wozniak but managed to edge out the Canadian qualifier in straight sets after saving three set points.

The 20-year-old Wozniacki from Denmark took the first set 6-3 but failed to split with her world No. 162 opponents after 12 games in the second sets.

Wozniacki, still searching for her first Grand Slam title, put herself in danger while giving Wozniak to lead the tiebreak 6-3, but was tough enough to grab five points in a row to wrap it up.

Wozniacki will play either Daniela Hantuchova or Sara Errani in the next round.
