Caroline Wozniacki wins Rogers Cup semi and final in one day


World No.2 Caroline Wozniacki was supposed to play her Rogers Cup semifinal against Svetlana Kuznetsova on Saturday but persistent rain in Montreal delayed the most part of the match all the way to Monday, which forced the final to be played shortly after.

The 20-year-old cruised to a 6-2 6-3 victory over Kuznetsova in the semifinals without dropping serve and only hours later played for the title against Vera Zvonareva, who reached the final after Victoria Azarenka retired due to a blister on her left foot at 7-6(6) 1-0 down.

Wozniacki disposed of two of the highest-ranked Russian players in one day as she followed the win over world No.12 Kuznetsova with a convincing 6-3 6-2 win over eighth-ranked Zvonareva.

Wozniacki has collected her ninth Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title and third of the year (after Ponte Vedra Beach and Copenhagen). She and Kim Clijsters are now the only two players that have won three titles this season. The two faced each other in the last year’s final of the US Open, and this time they will be the Top 2 seeds at the Grand Slam.


  1. no way should kim be world number 3. she is so inconsistant. when sam and serena and venus are back, the rankings will be restored.

    omg hurry up maria sharapova.

  2. yes, kim is playing just a bit, it’s nt fair against the other players. there should be a higher limit of must-played tournaments per year.
    awesome for caro 🙂

  3. Kim has won the most tournaments this season. If someone is inconsistent, it’s not her. She has to play limited schedule, she’s got family. Even with a limited one she still plays more than Serena Williams… who truly does not belong to no.1. She only plays at slams and then is always “injured”.

  4. I just wanted to correct my mistake, but you were quicker :-). Yes, they did and I think this season they’ve been the best players on the tour. Caro is no.1 seed for the US Open this year and I’m happy for her, she deserves it. She’s one of the most consistent players these days.
    I still don’t think she’s the top favourite to win though. My tips are: Clijster, Azarenka or Stosur.

  5. Serena is not playing much, that’s true. But I still find Kim not that ‘on-TV girl’ like Wozzy.
    Caro is the only consistant player this year in my opinion.
