Sharapova, Wozniacki to compete in Korea
Maria Sharapova will visit Korea for the first time in seven years. Tennis marketing agency JS Management said Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, currently ranked No. 11, will have an exhibition match at Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on Dec. 28.
Sharapova won the French Open in June to complete a career Grand Slam as she won all four majors eight years after her triumph at Wimbledon in 2004.
She gained huge popularity in Korea when she won the Hansol Open on her first visit to the country that same year. Her last match in Korea was against Venus Williams back in 2005. Sharapova lost in straight sets to the American.
Wozniacki won the KDB Korea Open, which ended last Sunday.
Her boyfriend Rory Mcllroy of Northern Ireland, the world's top-ranked male golfer, will accompany her to Korea at the end of the year.
