She next faces either Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands or American Nicole Gibbs for a place in the last 16. It's the first time that the French woman has ever beaten the German in her career.

The 15-year-old, who is ranked 521 in the world, was given a wild card into qualifying after winning the junior title last year, and this is her first main draw at any WTA-level tournament.

In the match preceding Nadal and Mayer on Rod Laver Arena, Wozniacki felt like she was "one foot out the tournament" before winning six straight games to advance.

The Dane reeled off four points in a row to get to 5-2 and then never looked back, racing through the next five games in just 20 minutes.

"I'm just relieved to be through".

Before the start of this week Kostyuk's total career prize money was $6,733, but she already has plans for the bumper $142,500 pay day she will earn even if she loses to Svitolina in the third round.

She beat two top-10 players to take the trophy.

The World No.119 was not fazed by the retaliation though, breaking the Wozniacki serve for the second time to lead 2-1. Her fellow Ukrainian Kateryna Bondarenko beat No.

"Oh, so you're giving her the benefit of the doubt, but you're not giving it to me?" she asked British official Richard Haigh before dumping a volley into the net, then thrashing her racquet into the court in disgust after dropping serve.
