The 17th seed led 2-nil in the first set but then fell apart as the world number 39 cruised to victory to reach the third round in New York for the first time.

It is the first time Mauresmo has gone out of the U.S. Open before the third round in 10 appearances.

Wozniak will now play 10th seed Flavia Pennetta after the Italian whitewashed Sania Mirza of India 6-love 6-love.
