Wozniacki took on McHale at the second round. With golf sensation and friend Rory McIlroy in attendance, the Danish top seed never looked close to her best and lacked winning shots. Wozniacki, who suffered early round exits in her last two tournaments, handed victory to McHale with an awfully-timed stroke which looped way over the baseline. She fell 6-4 7-5 to the 76th ranked McHale. The defeat was the first time Wozniacki lost to an opponent outside the top 75 since 2009 and extends a worrying spell of form for the Dane.
