Wozniacki teaches 16yo a lesson 

All quarter finalists are decided in both Taipei City and St Petersburg.

Caroline Wozniacki (1), after her first round bye in St Petersburg, played a second round match against 16 year old Russian Anastasia Potapova.

The teenager, ranked 235, had a win against top 50 player Tatjana Maria, which rocketed her to 199 in the live rankings.

Naturally it would be a tough ask facing up to the recently crowned Australian Open champion, but a fantastic opportunity nevertheless.

It was an easy win for Wozniacki on the scoreboard, but Potapova won 9 points from the 20 serves that the top seed delivered, which is a stat with which she can be pleased.

However Wozniacki created 21 break points in the match - she only needed to convert 7 - and this was how the score line was finalised at 6-0 6-1.

Potapova never held serve for the entire match, and her only game won was with a break of the Wozniacki serve.

A great experience for the promising young Russian and a predictable start for the top seed.
