Caroline Wozniacki is a star on the international scene. But success, according to her next opponent at Wimbledon, Spanish Anabel Medina Garrigues, has not left its traces on the Dane.
- She is the same person, although she is number nine in the world. It is not usual on the WTA Tour, where some players create a distance, when they become successfull. But Caroline is the same girl, "says Anabel Medina Garrigues.
- I've seen some players change when they come into the world top. They may not say hello if they have won a match. That is not how it is with Caroline explains the Spaniard who has already met Wozniacki during this year's Wimbledon.
The two know each other quite well and they train often together, as was the case Sunday - the day before the opening of the English Grand Slam tournament. All friendship will be forgotten when they encounter each other in the third round.
- When we are on court, so it is about winning. Afterwards we love each other, she said.
Medina Garrigues and Caroline Wozniacki have met each other four times in the past three Danish victories to follow, while Spain sent Wozniacki out of a WTA tournament in Beijing last year
