    NEW YORK – When the final assessment is made of Caroline Wozniacki's career after she retires, history will probably treat her with more consideration than the present and past have.

    Throughout the highs and the lows, the 24-year-old from Denmark has kept an even keel, enjoying her time at the top, sloughing off criticisms warranted and otherwise, and just carrying on.

    After a spring of discontent that included a rather insensitive telephone ending of their engagement by her former fiancé, golf superstar Rory McIlroy, Wozniacki has proceeded to have an outstanding summer on the hard courts.

    She crowned that with a well-earned 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 victory over Maria Sharapova in the fourth round Sunday at the U.S. Open, and now has to be considered a major favorite to get to the final out of a half of the draw decimated with upsets.

    "Yeah, definitely it ranks up there. Maria obviously is a tough competitor. She's won here before. She won the French Open this year. You know, it was a really good win for me. Beating her here at the U.S. Open, you know, it's a tough task. I'm really happy to be through and have another chance to play in the next round," Wozniacki said.
