World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki met the press today at the Australian Open, and despite her inability to win those big Grand Slam matches the Dane is still confident that she can beat the best when she’s playing well.
“I know that if I play on my high level and if I play the way I want to play, it’s really tough to beat me,” said Wozniacki who has had her struggles beating the top players.
And winning that first Grand Slam is still on her mind.
“Obviously every time you go into a tournament, you want to try to win it,” the 21-year-old said. “Yeah, I want to try to win here. We’ll see if that will happen. You need to play the best tennis to do that. You know, I’ve been No. 1 for a long time already. Now my main focus is just to win as many tournaments as possible and the ranking will get there, will be there, if you play well.”
Wozniacki injured her wrist last week in Sydney, but she said that it’s back to 100%.
“It will be a hundred percent,” she said. “I feel confident that my wrist will be okay for Monday. Yeah, I mean, obviously also leading up to a tournament, playing in Sydney, of course when it happened, I really felt the sharp pain, I was a bit concerned. But now it feels good, so I’m okay.”
Playing her ninth Australian Open, Wozniacki added she’s had a number of good memories from the Australian Open.
“I remember someone once confused me with Daniela Hantuchova,” she said. “They thought I just finished up a mixed doubles. They were like, Daniela, can we have your autograph? I said, I’m not Daniela. They said, Yes, you are, we just saw you. That was very funny. I remember that. I even remember where I played. I think I played on the last court on the left. So, yeah, it’s fun to think back. A lot of things have happened since then. Yeah, I played the finals here, as well, in the juniors one year. So it’s good memories.”
Caroline begins her Australian Open campaign against Australian Anastasia Rodionova. She and five other women will bid for the No. 1 ranking during the tournament.
