I wonder if Caroline Wozniacki has been involved in naming the new adidas by Stella McCartney tennis shoes she's going to wear beginning at the US Open.
The shoes are named adidas Skynde.
"Skynde" is the Danish word for "hurry" or "hurry up". Maybe she will move faster in these shoes.
It must sting to lose twice to Cirstea, who has been the lesser of the two since juniors.
Wozniacki was injured when the lost to Cirstea in French open. She could barely make an overhead serve in that match. Her 1st serve parcentage was higer than ever in that match because in reality they were all "2nd servres" or softer than that. So that match doesn't really count to compare their H2H performances.
Ironically Wozniacki got her injury playing French Open doubles with Cirstea.
After that loss she was forced to take a break from all tennis and practice to recover her back injury.

They also asked her about her favorite video game growing up. She said the legendary Bubble Bobble released in the late 80's was her favourite game growing up and that she and Serena was Bubble Bobble champions.
Hmmm...an interesting draw for Caro. She should win her 2nd round match against Wozniak. It'd be pretty troubling if she were to lose as that would 2 straight tournaments in a row that Caro would have exited winning a match and 3 bad losses in a row.
I had decided to stick with Ana if it'd came to Ana v Caro (as it looks like it will), because Ana needs to reach a QF badly, but now I'm just hoping both of them can not be for the whole match and make it a good one. Getting trashed by Ana would do Caro no favors either.
