Wozniak Surprisingly Gets a Wild Card Into Miami

A bit of tennis commercial horse-trading has resulted in a wild card for Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak into the Miami Masters.

Wozniak used up the last of her eight allotted protected ranking entries when she played at Indian Wells, scoring an upset over Wimbledon finalist Sabine Lisicki in the second round before losing to Li Na in the fourth round. Reports indicate that the wildcard was assured as the result of a trade between organizer and management company IMG and Tennis Canada, which runs the Montreal Masters and promised a wildcard into that event plus three Challengers for IMG clients.

Alexandr Dolgopolov’s homeland is currently beset with problems but the Ukrainian is reveling in the freedom he is experiencing in California’s Coachella Valley as he has reached the semi-final of a Masters 1000 series tournament for the first time at Indian Wells’ BNP Paribas Open.

 

Federer Spoke Out Against On-Court Coaching

Roger Federer spoke out strongly against on-court coaching in tennis when asked whether it should be used on the ATP tour.

"The people next door to me have a young family and they keep me up quite a lot. When the parents are out it gets a bit rowdy on occasions."
