THE LOWDOWN

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting:
Danielle Collins beat Caroline Wozniacki 7-6, RET

CAROLINE WOZNIACKI

  • Caroline Wozniacki lost the first set to China’s Wang Yafan in the first round but rallied to win the match in three sets and will face the USA’s Danielle Collins in the second round.
  • The 29-year-old Dane has reached the finals of the US Open on two occasions, in 2009 and 2014, and as far as the semi-finals in three other campaigns at Flushing Meadows.
  • Wozniacki shares a 1-1 head-to-head record with Danielle Collins but was forced to retire after the first set of their match at the Rome Masters earlier this year, while she beat Collins at Roland-Garros the year previous.

DANIELLE COLLINS

  • Danielle Collins came through a challenging match with Polona Hercog in three sets in the first round of the US Open, saving eight of the Slovenian’s 10 break points.
  • 25-year-old Collins had her breakthrough Grand Slam campaign at the Australian Open earlier this year, winning her first match at a Slam before reaching the semi-finals.
  • Collins will have big designs on the US Open with a home crowd’s support and her hard-court pedigree is clear to see as her 6-0, 6-2 win over then world number two Angelique Kerber in the round of 16 of the Australian Open showed.

THE PREDICTION

Results are hard to predict where Caroline Wozniacki is involved, with the Dane’s clear talent often losing out to more robust players wearing her down or making her commit errors. Danielle Collins’ Australian Open campaign was nothing short of inspiring, and the American is certainly a big-occasion player in the same vein as compatriot Alison Riske. There is a gulf in ability on these respective players’ best days, but Collins could utilise the backing of a home crowd to take this match.
