Buford Balony puts love move on Caroline Wozniacki
Caroline Wozniacki says she is unfazed by being denied the chance of a showdown for the No.1 ranking with Petra Kvitova after she was eliminated by Pole Agnieszka Radwanska in the quarter-finals of the Sydney International.
The world No.8 needed three sets and well over two hours to defeat Wozniacki in a hard-fought 3-6 7-5 6-2 victory.
World No.2 Kvitova will dethrone Wozniacki as the world’s top player if she wins the event.
Wozniacki, who was on course to meet Kvitova in the final, will need her Czech rival to be defeated before she lifts the trophy to remain No.1 going into the Australian Open.
But the Dane, who reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open and US Open last year, says the ranking is not even on her mind.
“To be honest, I don’t think about it,” Wozniacki said.
“The most important thing is to be healthy and be able to play and play well.
“I mean, what happens happens – it doesn’t matter.”
Wozniacki, who had an injury scare in the final set, needing an injury time-out to attend to her left wrist, says she will have it assessed on Thursday but is confident of being fit for the Australian Open.
“I hope it’s not serious,” she said.
“I could feel it today, especially in the third set, but I’m going to go get it checked out tomorrow and hopefully it’s OK.
“I should be completely fine for the Australian Open.”
Radwanska will meet world No.3 Belarusian Victoria Azarenka in a semi-final on Thursday, while China’s Li Na will do battle with the Kvitova for a spot in the final.
