Caroline Wozniacki felt she was unlucky to suffer a first-round French Open exit and hopes to respond in the grass court campaign.
The former world number one went down in three sets to Veronika Kudermetova, despite winning the first set without losing a game.
The Russian fought back to claim a 0-6 6-3 6-3 win and Wozniacki was left disappointed by her early exit in Paris. “I think she got very lucky at the start of the second set and took advantage of the opportunities she got,” said Wozniacki. “I ran out of steam in the end and made some unforced errors that I don’t usually do, so that was very frustrating. She had a few net cords and good shots on some of the important points at the start of the second set. “It’s definitely frustrating.
You want to win, you work hard and you want to see results. The 2018 Australian Open champion hopes she can rediscover her form and full fitness going into the grass court season ahead of the next Grand Slam event at Wimbledon.

She added: “It hasn’t been a great year for me so far, so I’m going to work hard and try and turn it around.
I haven’t had the best lead-up to this tournament. “I had a calf injury so haven’t really been able to play or practice for a couple of weeks. “My calf now feels good so that’s a positive so I’m definitely going to go back and work hard and get ready for the grass season.
I just have to try and stay positive, and obviously it’s not as easy to stay positive when things aren’t going your way.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
