Two-time defending champion Caroline Wozniacki overcame Urszula Radwanska of Poland 7-6 (4), 6-2 on Tuesday to reach the second round of the e-Boks Open in Copenhagen.

The 21-year old Dane was down a break in the first set before rallying to force the tiebreaker. She then broke three times in the second to clinch the victory in two hours, 5 minutes.

The sixth-ranked Wozniacki will next play Pauline Parmentier of France, who ousted Anna Chakvetadze of Russia 7-5, 6-1 on the hard courts at the Farum Arena.

Second-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany also advanced, beating Stephanie Foretz Gacon of France 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.

Alize Cornet of France had the easiest win of the day, routing Danish wildcard Malou Ejdesgaard 6-0, 6-0.

Seventh-seeded Ksenia Pervak of Kazakhstan had to retire from her match against Australia's Johanna Konta when trailing 6-3, 1-0.

Sixth-seeded Mona Barthel of Germany ousted Sweden's Johanna Larsson 6-3, 6-4, while No 8 Sofia Arvidsson of Sweden lost 7-5, 5-7, 6-1 to Austria's Patricia Mayr-Achleitner.
