CAROLINE WOZNIACKI REGAINS WTA WORLD NO.1 RANKING

DUBAI – By reaching the semifinals at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, Caroline Wozniacki will return to the top of the WTA Rankings on Monday, February 21, 2011.  Wozniacki will surpass the current WTA World No.1 Kim Clijsters who ascended to the top of the rankings last week for the fourth time in her career.  Wozniacki is projected to hold the top spot for at least four weeks through March 20, 2011.  In addition to finishing the 2010 season as the World No.1 ranked player, she held the top ranking for a total of 18 consecutive weeks prior to being overtaken by Clijsters.

Only the 10th player to end the season as the World No.1 since the WTA ranking system was introduced in 1975, Wozniacki became the first player from Denmark to reach the top ranking.  Wozniacki had a career-best season in 2010, capturing a WTA-leading six titles including the China Open (Beijing), the Toray Pan Pacific Open (Tokyo), and the Rogers Cup (Montreal).  She also won the MPS Group Championships (Ponte Vedra Beach), the e-Boks Sony Ericsson Open, the Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale (New Haven) and reached the final of the year-end WTA Championships, falling to Clijsters in three sets.  Playing her first Grand Slam as a World No.1, Wozniacki reached the semifinals of the Australian Open earlier this year, losing to China’s Li Na.

Final Quotes
Caroline Wozniacki, 2010 China Open singles champion:

“I thought I played a really, really good match. Vera was playing really well too. Everything is working for me at the moment. I’ve got to believe I can beat anyone. I feel in great shape and I’m looking forward to Doha.”

Vera Zvonareva, 2010 China Open singles runner-up:
“Rankings don’t matter too much to me, because I knew if I play well I’ll win matches and the ranking will come. If I go on court and think about everything but my game, I won’t be able to win any match and my ranking wouldn’t be there. I just think about what I have to do on the court to win.”

Chuang Chia-Jung, 2010 China Open doubles champion:
“Because it’s in China it’s very special for me. Olga and I have played together about half a year now and this was our best week together. We played aggressively and that was the key today.”

Olga Govortsova, 2010 China Open doubles champion:
“Almost all of our matches this week went to a tie-break, and when we get there we play so focused. CJ was hitting great volleys and I was hitting hard from the baseline. Gisela and Flavia are so good, we’re really happy. I’ve been to Beijing nine or 10 times now. I can’t wait to come back again.”

Final Quotes
Caroline Wozniacki, 2010 Toray Pan Pacific Open singles champion:

“Elena started really strongly, she was playing very aggressively and I didn’t get enough depth in my groundstrokes. But in the beginning of the second set I pressed a little harder and came into the rallies a bit more. I’m very happy – I really enjoy winning and I’m feeling good. It’s always nice to hold the trophy in your hand, that’s what you are practicing for. I’m feeling very confident and I feel like I’m playing some good tennis, so hopefully next week will be just as good. I’ll take it one match at a time and we’ll see what happens.”

Elena Dementieva, 2010 Toray Pan Pacific Open singles runner-up:
“I feel I played very well in the first set; unfortunately I missed some opportunities in the beginning of the second set and lost a bit of momentum. That was the key… she was fighting and playing solid from the baseline. I’m disappointed with the way I finished the match but I love playing in Tokyo, and even though I lost today I think it was a great final. I’m a little tired heading to Beijing, but I will fly tonight or tomorrow and try to get ready for one of the biggest events of the season. Fingers crossed I can do well there.”

Iveta Benesova, 2010 Toray Pan Pacific Open doubles champion:
“We’re very happy. This is the biggest tournament we have won together and we’ve had some really tough matches along the way. We got quite tight in the second set so we are just so relieved to win.”

Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, 2010 Toray Pan Pacific Open doubles champion:
“It was so nerve wracking, especially in the super tie-break, but we tried to stay positive and not think negative. We made it somehow and are very glad about that!”

Caroline Wozniacki and Doubles Team of Kveta Peschke/Katarina Srebotnik Qualify for WTA Championships-Doha 2010

TOKYO, JAPAN – By winning their matches at the Toray Pan Pacific Open (Tokyo) today, Caroline Wozniacki and the doubles team of Kveta Peschke/Katarina Srebotnik have qualified for the season-ending WTA Championships–Doha 2010, set to take place for the third year in a row at the Khalifa International Tennis Complex in Doha, Qatar, from October 26-31. The world’s top eight singles players and top four doubles teams from the 2010 season will compete for the coveted WTA Championships titles and a share of the $4.5 million in prize money. Wozniacki becomes the first singles player to qualify for the 2010 season finale and she and Peschke/Srebotnik join the doubles team of Gisela Dulko/Flavia Pennetta who qualified earlier this month.

“Caroline and the team of Kveta and Katarina have had terrific seasons, highlighted by a series of titles,” said Stacey Allaster, Chairman and CEO of the WTA.  “Caroline’s 2010 accomplishments have brought her to a career high ranking of World No.2 and Kveta and Katarina are headed to Doha as a team for the first time in their careers.  All three of these players are terrific ambassadors for the sport and I congratulate them on qualifying for the year-end WTA Championships.”

Caroline Wozniacki:

“It’s fantastic to be going back to Doha.  It was definitely a goal of mine at the start of the season to qualify for the year-end WTA Championships. I’m very happy about my year, and it’s great to know that I’ve already qualified,” said World No.2 Wozniacki.

Denmark’s Wozniacki, who reached the semifinals of her WTA Championships debut last year, has captured four singles titles so far this year: the MPS Group Championships (Ponte Vedra Beach), the e-Boks Sony Ericsson Open – an inaugural WTA event in Wozniacki’s hometown of Copenhagen, the Rogers Cup (Montreal), and the Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale (New Haven).  She also reached the final of the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells) and the semifinals of the Family Circle Cup (Charleston). During the 2010 season, Wozniacki was one of only two players (along with Venus Williams) to reach at least the fourth round of every Grand Slam, getting to the last 16 at the Australian Open and Wimbledon, the quarterfinals of Roland Garros and the semifinals of the US Open.  Wozniacki amassed a 13-match winning streak, the second longest on Tour this season (Venus Williams, 15) in winning back-to-back titles at Montreal and New Haven and advancing to the US Open semifinals.  Her strong performance during the summer events resulted in capturing the coveted US Open Series title.  Wozniacki is the first player to win 50 Tour-level singles matches this year and reached a career-high ranking of World No.2 on March 22, 2010, which she has held for a total of 15 weeks. During the US Open, where she was seeded No.1 at a major for the first time in her career, Wozniacki surpassed $5 million in career prize money earnings.

Kveta Peschke/Katarina Srebotnik:

“It’s definitely great that Katarina and I have made it to the WTA Championships as we’ve been working toward this goal all year and it’s really good to know that our results have put us into the top four doubles teams in the world,” said Peschke.

“The WTA Championships is such a special event and I am thrilled to have qualified because so few players ever get the chance to take part in either singles or doubles competition,” added Srebotnik.  “Kveta and I started playing together this year and we clicked right from the beginning and have become good friends in addition to playing some great tennis together.”

Peschke and Srebotnik will make their first appearance at the WTA Championships–Doha 2010 together, even though both players have previously qualified and played in the year-end event with other partners.  2010 marks Srebotnik’s fifth trip to the Championships (was runner-up with Ai Sugiyama in 2007), while Peschke participated in the event three times during 2006-2008, getting to the final in 2008 (with Rennae Stubbs).  As a team, Peschke/Srebotnik reached seven WTA tournament finals this year, winning two titles – at the BNP Paribas Open (Indian Wells) and the Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale (New Haven).  On their way to a 36-12 record in 2010, they also reached the final of Roland Garros, the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships (Dubai), the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix (Stuttgart), the AEGON International (Eastbourne) and the Rogers Cup (Montreal).  Both Peschke and Srebotnik have a career-high doubles ranking of World No.3 and have returned to the Top 10 recently after missing most of 2009 with injuries.
