In 1996 Spîrlea became the first player in the history of the Women's Tennis Association to receive a match default for conduct, when she swore at an official in "gutter Italian" during a match played in Palermo, Italy.

Wozniacki was seeded #2 in the year's last major tournament, the 2006 U.S. Open - Girls' Singles. In the first round, on September 3, she won the first set against Russian Alexandra Panova, but was disqualified in the second set for verbally abusing an umpire. Wozniacki was said to have used an expletive in referring to a linesman who made a disputed call, however, on her blog, she claimed to say "take your sunglasses of" and to be mistaken for talking to the linesman when she was criticizing herself after the next point.
