Wozniacki crushes Parmentier to reach fourth round
Text size Aa Aa

PARIS (Reuters) – Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki whizzed into the fourth round of the French Open with a brutal 6-0 6-3 demolition of local favourite Pauline Parmentier on Friday.

In front of an half empty Court Philippe Chatrier under threatening skies, the Danish second seed barely broke sweat to set up a meeting with Russian Daria Kasatkina.

A woeful Parmentier managed only six points in the opening set, four of them being gifted by Wozniacki’s unforced errors.

There was a brief smile on wildcard Parmentier’s face when she finally won three games — after losing the first 11.

Wozniacki quickly regained control and wrapped it up on the second match point when the Frenchwoman sent a forehand long — her 27th unforced error of the match.
