Caroline Wozniacki -19- (DEN) def Danielle Collins -35- (USA)
Match recap from Arthur Ashe Stadium announcer Andy Taylor...
2-time US Open Finalist Caroline Wozniacki weathered Danielle Collins’ opening assault to reach the 3rd-Round of the US Open for the 8th time – her first trip past Round-2 since her Semifinal run in 2016.
The former World #1 kept unforced errors to a minimum – while Collins, who reached her first Grand Slam Semifinal at this year’s Australian Open, never let her foot off the gas. Unfortunately for Danielle, the accuracy of her thundering ground-strokes began to wane in sets 2 and 3.

Round-2 Biography | Danielle Collins -35- (USA)

Over the next five years, she’d win two NCAA Singles titles at the University of Virgina – and back in January, reached her first Grand Slam Semifinal at the Australian Open – defeating World #2 Angelique Kerber in the 2nd-Round. With that appearance in the Melbourne’s Final-4, she climbed to a career-high ranking of World #23 and went on to make career-best runs at every Grand Slam, including here at the US Open – where on Tuesday, she earned her first US Open main-draw victory to reach tonight’s 2nd-Round match.
