Wozniacki Breezes to Rain-Delayed WTA Rogers Cup Title
by Staff | August 24th, 2010

Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki beat Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2 on Monday in the rain-delayed final of the WTA Rogers Cup. Earlier in the day the Dane dispatched of former No. 2 Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-2, 6-3 in the rain-delayed semifinals.

The 20-year-old Wozniacki, the top seed at next week’s US Open after the withdrawal of world No. 1 Serena Williams, added to titles earlier this year at Ponte Vedra Beach (Fla.) and Copenhagen.

Zvonareva reached the final on Saturday after her rain-delayed semifinal when Belarus’ Victoria Azarenka pulled out of the match due to a blister on her foot.

“I don’t see how I got a blister after sitting on my [expletive deleted] for two days,” Azarenka said.

The Russian Zvonareva says the conditions were difficult for everyone.

“It was tough for all of us waiting out the rain for two days,” Zvonareva said. “It was difficult for me. It was a different court, different conditions. I tried my best but it wasn’t enough against Caroline.”

Zvonareva had a brief chance in the first set, down 3-5 but up 40-0 on Wozniacki’s serve, but could not take advantage of the break opportunities.

Depending on Wozniacki’s results at the US Open and the missing world No. 1 Williams, the Dane could numerically have a shot at taking over the world No. 1 ranking.

Joe Says:

Worst no 1 seed at a grand slam ever?

steve Says:

She’s hyped because she’s blonde, buxom, bubbly–and bland.

Her press conferences are full of forgettable nothings. She’s a blonde cipher, whose value is that she is a blank slate with no distinguishable personality traits whatever.

And who the hell wears makeup in a Grand Slam final?

Gregoire Gentil Says:

Those two macho and aggressive comments are simply sad. If you are not interested by women tennis, simply don’t comment.
