Several Memphis fans were only taking their seats as Davenport jumped out to a 5-0 first set lead in 16 minutes.
In the final game of set one, a Davenport crosscourt forehand winner plus two forced errors from Wozniacki put Davenport at set point.
Wozniacki, who had called for an injury timeout, sailed a backhand return long on set point and Davenport claimed the set in only 17 minutes.
"I never know what to expect playing players I've never played, and I know she's a good up and coming player so it was important for me
to try to get off to a good start which I was able to do," Davenport said. "I felt like on this court I might be able to overpower her.
I was successful in doing that tonight, and I managed to keep the momentum going all the way through."
Davenport continued to roll set two as she broke serve and held to reach 4-2 before closing out the match 6-0, 6-2 after 53 minutes with
a forehand down the line winner on her first matchpoint.
For the match Davenport finshed with five aces and 80% of first serves won.
Davenport continued, "I'm very motivated at this tournament; the first one I've played in the United States since the summer of (20)06.
It's exciting for me to play here. I'm really hoping to do well and get to the finals."
