Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews

I was quite surprised to hear they had chosen Egypt as location, like... who was the genius behind this? Are they purposely looking for trouble or what! I just hope everything turns okay.

After Wozniacki terror concerns: We trust ITF
Efter Wozniackis terrorbekymring: Vi stoler på ITF - TV 2

Danish Tennis Federation understands Caroline Wozniacki concern for Fed Cup matches in Egypt, but trust in the International Tennis Federation's decision.

In April, the Danish Fed Cup team play international matches in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. The location of the matches have met nervousness from the team's biggest star Caroline Wozniacki.

The director of the Danish Tennis Federation, Sune Irgens Alenkær, is not without concerns about international football:

- I would aboslut have felt better if the game had been elsewhere, including Europe, says Sune Irgens Alenkær who still have confidence in the decision.

- Conversely, I must also say that we must trust that the International Tennis Federation have made their feasibility studies well enough, and that of course they can guarantee the safety of all athletes, including the Danish.

See a part of the interview with Caroline Wozniacki around the Fed Cup in Egypt in the clip at the top of the article.

Out of Fed Cup - the women's equivalent of the Davis Cup - played first to April. Therefore, the Danish Tennis Federation stay up to date on how things develop in the Egyptian capital.

- It is clear that we will be in continuous dialogue with the International Tennis Federation to assess the security situation, so we from Danish side can stand on the goal to send our athletes off.

But you are safe?

- We rely at least in the International Tennis Federation have made their process thoroughly. We are also sure that if the situation were to deteriorate in one way or another, they will also take the appropriate precautions, says Sune Irgens Alenkær to TV 2 SPORT.

Foreign Ministry writes on his website about traveling to Egypt:

"There is generally a high risk of terrorism throughout Egypt, including Cairo. There is also a risk kidnappings throughout Egypt."

The risk, the Danish journalist Eva Plesner, who is in Cairo, well recognize.

- There are problems with the security of Egypt. The stone is safely. 95 percent of terrorist attacks will take place on dn northern part of the Sinai Peninsula. But there are also attacked in Cairo, says Eva Plesner to TV 2 SPORT.

She says, however, that the attacks in Cairo is not directed at sporting events, but the police, consulates and domestic buildings.

- I can not think of a terrorist attack in Cairo in connection with a major sporting event. But recent years have actually been very few major sporting events in Cairo, and it is primarily associated with fear of terrorism. You dare not put major sporting events here, says Eva Plesner.

But even sporting events such as a tennis match has not been subjected to attacks, so understand Eva Plesner good Carolina Wozniacki's nervousness about security.

- Egypt is a place where there may be violent things. And one should not rule out that a risk of great anxiety about a tennis tournament.

- But typically happens tumult at football matches, when the fans smoking at loggerheads. But it is not political terror, yet quite serious when people are killed. And so there have been audience to football matches in over a year, says the Danish journalist for TV 2 SPORT.
