Caroline Wozniacki comes back from one set down to defeat Lucie Hradecka at the China Open.

World number one Caroline Wozniacki fought back from one set down to claim victory during her first round match of the China Open against Lucie Hradecka.

The Czech Republic's Hradecka looked to be pulling off a shock when she won the first set in Beijing 6-3.

However, 21-year-old Wozniacki hit back in clinical style during the second set, not dropping a game on her way to 6-0 success.

Hradecka showed more resistance in the deciding set, but she was unable to prevent Wozniacki advancing through 7-5.

The Dane, who won the China Open title last year, will face Australian Jarmila Gajdosova in the next round.
