Forner world no. 1 Caroline Wozniacki was ailing during her first round match at the WTA BMW Malaysian Open in Kuala Lampur in Wednesday and after failing to convert a match point in the second set, the Dane crashed out in three sets to Chinese qualifier Wang Qiang.

Qiang saved a match point at 5-6 in the second set and then won the set in a tie breaker and the third easily 26 76(1) 61. Wozniacki commented after her loss, "I was feeling light-headed, but tried my best to keep playing.

I just didn't have energy out there. It's very disappointing to lose, but that's how it goes sometimes, and hopefully I can come back strong again." In other first round matches of the rain affected tournament, third seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova saved three matchpoints to snap a four match losing streak and 16 year old Australian Ashleigh Barty scored her first WTA level win.
