Caroline Wozniacki is showing great form in the WTA-tournament in Montreal, Rogers Cup.
On Thursday evening she beat the unseeded american Shelby Rogers, who somewhat surprising beat the world number 8, Eugenie Bouchard, in the second round of the tournament. Wozniacki beat Rogers with the score of 6-1, 6-0, and the match only lasted 56 minutes.
She is now ready to face the winner of the match between Serena Williams and Lucie Safaravo, which will probably be Williams. A real test for the Dane, who hasn’t beaten Serena Williams since 2012.
On to the match, where Wozniacki quickly established herself as the dominant part of the match, and with a very low amount of faults, quickly made the score 4-0. A short rain-break followed, but Wozniacky wasn’t phased by the break, and when the sun once again showed itself in Montreal, the Dane won the first set with 6-1.
A great start for the Dane, who won her first tournament of the year just last month, the WTA-tournament in Istanbul.
The second set arrived, and Wozniacki was once again a level or two above her opponent in all parameters of the game. The american was driven all over the track, and it only took Wozniacki 20 minutes to win the second set 6-0, and with that, the match. The next challenge for Wozniacki will be in the quarterfinal, where as said, she will probably face Serena Williams. With this victory, she still has the opportunity to repeat the triumph of 2010, where she won the tournament in Montreal.
Wozniacki is on quite a roll, and has shown great form throughout the tournament. In the first round she outplayed her Slovakian opponent, Daniela Hantuchova, with the score of 6-1, 6-1. In the second round she beat Czech player Klara Koukalova with the score of 6-1, 6-2. A remarkable comeback after a long period of unsatisfying results and early exists. Some might argue that the break-up with golfer Rory McIlroy might have something to do with it, where she now can focus on tennis again.
