Wozniacki breezes into US Open fourth round

Top-seeded Wozniacki, the 2009 runner-up, waltzed past 103rd-ranked California native Vania King in 1 hour, 36 minutes. The 21-year-old Wozniacki, still seeking her first-ever major championship, leads the WTA with six titles already this year, including a fourth straight New Haven championship last week.

Wozniacki said:

"I won. I think that's the most positive. It's great to be through. You know, I was fighting a lot out there, getting quite a lot of balls back."

King captured doubles titles at the U.S. Open and Wimbledon last year, but has never advanced beyond the third round in singles at a Grand Slam event.

2011 French Open runner-up and 2010 Roland Garros titlist Francesca Schiavone staved off a match point before fighting back to beat South African Chanelle Scheepers 5-7, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3, also advanced into the last 16.
