Brisbane, AUS: Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak is through to the second round at the first TFT official tournment held in Brisbane. After battling for almost 3 hours in the hot summer of Australia, Wozniak clinched a 7-6 3-6 7-6 victory over sexy russian Maria Kirilenko who made some members of the crowd feeling the heat ever more. The young canadian entered the exhibition event to prepare this tournment 2 weeks ago but she didn't have the results that she hoped for so she was a little nervous about her first match here.
"As I didn't play alot of matches last week I was a bit nervous about this match, it took me a while to get a rythm and keeping it up. I'm glad that after that 2nd set I've been able to hold on and finally win the match."
The Canucks is now supposed to face the crowd favorite, Jelena Dokic, who hasn't showed up yet. Wozniak didn't comment on that possible walkover to the QF because she was rushing to get some treatment to be sure that she'll be ready for her next match tomorrow.
