Arab states were always associated with lack of people on the stands. But this time, wow! May people decided to come. That is something new.

I thought the same thing. Looke like more than usually show up in a week.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

I've never seen so many Romanian flags in the stands, though. It looks like Monica motivated the vacational upper class to come there.
