Both Aleksandra Wozniak and Eugenie Bouchard delivered opening-day wins Saturday at the Fed Cup in Montreal.

Wozniak, who hails from nearby Blainville, Que., downed Serbia's Vesna Dolonc, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4. Dolonc had nine double-faults to Wozniak's four during the marathon match (2:31).

No. 19-ranked Bouchard, projected to be a future WTA superstar, walked all over Jovana Jaksic in the day's second showdown.

Bouchard managed three aces en route to a 6-1, 6-0, straight-sets victory. Jaksic, No. 149 in the world, didn't help her own cause by committing 19 unforced errors over the course of the 50-minute match.

Canada now leads the best-of-five series, 2-0.

The World Group II first-round matchup resumes Sunday, with Wozniak meeting Jaksic and Bouchard facing Dolonc.
