Mertens beats Wozniacki in Rothesay Classic 

Mertens beats Wozniacki in Rothesay Classic 

WTA No.5 seed, Elise Mertens, needed 1 hour and 31 minutes to end Caroline Wozniacki's return to grass 6-4, 6-1 in the first round of the Rothesay Classic Tuesday evening.

Mertens came into the game at the back of two defeats to Wozniacki, but they had not played in over six years since the 2018 Australian Open semifinals, which the Dane won 6-3, 7-6(2) on her way to her single Grand Slam title. 

The Belgian faced a former World No.1 on the comeback from maternity leave in the first round; last week, when she fell 6-2, 6-4 to Naomi Osaka in Hertogenbosch.

Wozniacki, who did not enter Roland Garros, was in action for the first time since her Madrid first-round exit to Sara Errani, and playing her first match on grass since Wimbledon 2019.
