The one, and perhaps only, universal compliment that Caroline Wozniacki receives on her tennis game relates to her tenaciousness and fight. She proved as much in Saturday's three-set loss to Kaia Kanepi. The former world No. 1 won the second set after going down 1-5 and staged a brief comeback from the same score in the third, before Kanepi prevailed 6-1, 6-7 (3), 6-3.
Wozniacki channeled some of her fight to the chair umpire during a whiny exchange in the second set. A Kanepi shot was erroneously ruled in and Wozniacki took the opportunity to childishly complain about it. The complaint itself was valid -- replays showed the ball landing beyond the line -- but the setting was more lockers and Trapper Keepers than red clay and Paris. At one point, Wozniacki asked the umpire if he had ever gone to school. It was a wonder she never got to "I know you are, but what am I?"
