Caroline in The Barbados training and playing this week-end exhibition match.

Wozniacki in for tennis battle with Serena this weekend in Barbados.


International tennis superstar Caroline Wozniacki arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday just days before she she is scheduled to do battle with Serena Williams at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium.

The world number 4 was all smiles as she greeted the press at the Grace Adams Suite yesterday and noted that it was always a dream of hers to come to Barbados.

“I was really looking forward to coming here and spending some time hear. I have heard some wonderful things of Barbados and I am looking forward to exploring the island,” said Wozniacki.

Wozniacki noted that Williams was the first person she heard talking about the match-up and then she was approached by her agent. According to her when she heard it was going to be in Barbados she jumped at the opportunity.

She is coming off of an hamstring injury she picked up at the BGL Luxembourg Open, forcing her to retire hurt from that tournament. However, the Danish superstar is confident that everything is great.

“I am feeling really good now; I had a lot of days off. I started to practice last week and now I feel good, I feel fit. Yeah I am ready,” said Wozniacki.

Playing against current world number 1 Serena Williams is not going to be easy but Wozniacki is up for the challenge.

“She is a great player and has a great personality as well a really nice girl. I am really looking forward to seeing her here,” said Wozniacki.

Wozniacki will be the staying at the Sandy Lane Hotel, along with her mother Anna, father Piotr and brother Patrik. She turned pro in July 2005 and has won six World Tennis Association Tour singles and was runner up in this year’s US Open.

Don't think it's clever playing an exhibition match knowing she has just recovered from injuries and also she hasn't rested enough after very heavy 2009 season. It maybe is great for The Barbados seeing a bit of the WTA big guns with such exhibition match but for me such exhibitions are a waste of time and energy.
