Caroline Wozniacki has been treating tennis fans around the world with terrific play over the past several months.
The world's number one female player reached the quarterfinals of the French Open last spring. Then, after losing in the fourth round at Wimbledon, the Danish star won tournaments in her home country, Cincinnati, Montreal, and New Haven. Last summer's US Open saw Wozniacki reach the semifinals, where she fell to Vera Zvonareva.
But, on Tuesday, she defeated defending French Open champ Francesca Schiavone, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 in an entertaining match for fans.
