Now THIS was shocking.
All credit to Daniela Hantuchova who gave a clay court clinic to top seed Caroline Wozniacki during her 6-1, 6-3 drubbing in the Roland Garros third round today. The slender Slovak cut up the court with lovely angles and brilliant blasts down-the-line that kept the top seed from ever finding firm footing. It was her first win EVAH over a reigning World No. 1.
And while it's true Dani played impeccably well Wozzi never put up much of a fight. Okay, she put up her version of a fight which is waiting until her opponent misses. But, unfortunately for the her, Dani rarely did today. It sucks when that happens, huh?
Since there really isn't much else to say about the match I'll leave you with a piece of brilliance offered by Jon Wertheim from earlier today: "The Wozniasterisk just got bigger."
