Put three world-class tennis players on a “triathlon” obstacle course sized for kids and what do you get? Some great entertainment. Caroline Wozniacki, Petra Kvitova and Lucie Safarova met that challenge at the Connecticut Open presented by United Technologies. Watch to see who emerged the winner.
Kvitova, Wozniacki and Safarova talk at the Connecticut Open
Caroline Wozniacki opened up about her friend close friendship with Serena Williams in the New York Post. And also discussed former fiancee Rory McIlroy and “close” friend JJ Watts.
She is great friends with Serena Williams and is looking forward to see her BFF win the calendar slam. Serena Williams would be the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 to do so.
“It’s incredible,’’ said Wozniacki, the 5-foot-10 blonde out of Denmark. “It’s hard for people to understand how big this is, what she’s already accomplished and what she’s about to accomplish. A great athlete, great person.’’
Petra Kvitova has been diagnosed with mononucleosis, a viral condition which can lead to prolonged fatigue, swollen glands, fever and body aches. She however did not let that stand in the way of her US Open 2015 and will just compete.
“I had a sore throat and I wanted to kill it so I had antibiotics after Wimbledon,” Kvitova said in comments carried by the WTA website.
“Unfortunately I didn’t kill it and that’s why it showed my immune system was low. So I had more tests and it (mononucleosis) showed up.”
Meanwhile Lucie Safarova continues to be in top form as she cruised to the next round at the Connecticut Open with a win over Russian Daria Gavrilova in straight sets 6-3 6-4.
“I lost to her in Toronto a couple weeks ago, so I was very happy to get a win today,” said Safarova.
