NEW HAVEN (Connecticut): US Open top seed Caroline Wozniacki says she plans to apply to Yale University.

Wozniacki, playing at the Pilot Pen tennis tournament, where she is a two-time defending champion, said Thursday she wanted to apply to the university this year, but things got busy as she ascended the tennis rankings to become the No. 2 player in the world.

The Danish tennis player says she would like to study business or management, perhaps online, and that college would give her something to think about other than tennis.

Wozniacki and the Yale football team bonded last year after she was invited to give a speech to them on mental toughness. The team attended her first match this year.

She said the same thing last year! She's consistent, that Woz. :lol:

Yea... not happening. Did she even take the SAT?

Would she get in? :unsure:

It would kinda be like Michelle Kwan and UCLA, but unlike Kwan, Wozniaki's sport definitely is more intrusive and can disrupt studies a lot more.

Speaking as a brother of a Yalie... yeah. She'd get in if it was remotely feasible. They have a bit of a rep for hedging their bets on producing famous alum by letting already famous people and/or their kids in. Jody Foster, Jennifer Beales, one of Jim Henson's daughters, a couple of kids who'd already had roles on TV shows--all at Yale while he was there.

Not to mention Bush II as another example. Now, not to say these weren't all (well, maybe not ALL) very gifted people who didn't deserve to get into Yale. But he knows a couple of them who never came close to matching their pre-Yale success after they graduated.

Seriously, though, there's no way she could actually graduate. Take some online classes? Probably. But that's a lot different from being a bona fide Eli.
