Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki is reportedly confident of winning her first Grand Slam crown at the Australian Open after a successful second round win over unseeded American Christina McHale.

The tenth-seeded Dane, who is engaged to golf star Rory McIlroy, on Thursday overcame a second set meltdown in intense heat to beat McHale 6-0, 1-6, 6-2 and make the third round, where she will play against Spaniard Garbine Muguruza.

According to Sport24, Wozniacki is confident of a good run at Melbourne Park, although she said that she is taking one match at a time.

The Dane, who ended 2010 and 2011 as world number one, has made just one Grand Slam final so far at the 2009 US Open, and her title credentials will be tested by Muguruza, who is on a hot run of form after winning her first WTA tournament at the Hobart International this month, the report added.
