Wozniacki falters but wins
Melbourne - Top seed Caroline Wozniacki continued her quest for a maiden grand slam title despite some trouble closing out her 6-2 6-2 victory over Romania's Monica Niculescu in the third round of the Australian Open on Friday.
The 21-year-old world number one was broken by the 31st seed when she was serving for the match at 5-1 but the hard work had already been done under overcast skies on Hisense Arena.
