Caroline Wozniacki’s tennis season ends following bread-knife injury

I have heard of Caroline Wozniacki, and knew she was a tennis player. That puts her in pretty exclusive company, as the only other tennis players I can name are the Williams sisters and Maria Sharapova on the women’s side, and Murray, Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer on the mens.

That said, I know virtually nothing about tennis. I did not know that Wozniacki had been having a bad season, one that is ending in an unlikely way.


Caroline Wozniacki lamented her “shitty” recent few months on Thursday after an unlucky incident involving a bread knife brought her season to an abrupt halt.

The former world number one was trailing Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 2-2 at the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai, southern China, when she retired and later withdrew from the tournament.

According to the WTA Insider Twitter account, Wozniacki cut her finger badly with a bread knife from room service and was unable to hold her racquet properly, prompting the wrist injury.

“It’s been a really, really frustrating, shitty second half of the year. Basically just been falling apart physically,” she was quoted as saying by the WTA-linked account.

When I was growing up one of my neighbors was a cardiac surgeon whose wife would not let him carve the Thanksgiving turkey lest he cut  himself. Maybe she was onto something.

    Don’t you mean the ‘born XX’ and ‘born XY’ sides of tennis?

    Seriously though, the Woz (2) needs to be paying a personal food chopper in future.

    Kids born in the 90’s is a entirely different class of stupid.
