Caroline is Fit and Ready for the Third Round

Flushing Meadows, NY – Caroline Wozniacki is feeling great, much better than last year when an injury caused her to lose in the first round.

Well, sort of.

“I think if you ask any tennis player, every day they wake up there’s always something,” she said.  “But it’s a little bit painful.”

Ok sure, but the No. 6 seed is still in top form; just ask Chanelle Scheepers who learned from Wozniacki’s 6-1, 6-2 win over her in the second round.

“I felt pretty good,” she said.  “I mean, I really like playing the night session on Ashe.  It’s great.  It’s a nice atmosphere.  It’s very electric. I was really excited to go out there and play today.”

Wozniacki seems to like the No. 6 seed, and thinks she is playing better now than when the Great Dane was the No. 1 seed in this tournament.

“I think I always improve as a player,” she said.  “I think I’m playing good tennis.  I think I’ve improved since then.”

Well that’s good but as she got better so did the field.

“I think there’s always ‑‑ you know, the level of tennis is always improving by anyone,” she said.  “The depth of the game is always increasing.  So it’s obviously getting tougher and tougher.  There are new players on the way.  It’s what happens.  There’s new generations coming up all the time and wanting to be the best.”

She plays Italy’s Camila Girogi in the third round on Saturday.
