Great Dane

No we are not referring to the dog, but Danish tennis player and current World number one Caroline Wozniacki.

We admire her tennis immensely but it was the handling of the media after reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open, taking charge of her post-match news conference, that we think makes her pretty special.

“Can I start this?” she said nervously on entering the interview room. “Yesterday I got the question by the media; they said that my press conferences were kind of boring, that I always gave the same answers.”

“I find it quite funny because I always get the same questions. So I’m just going to start. I know what you’re going to ask me already. So I’m just going to start with the answers.”

The 20-year-old Wozniacki said that she felt “great” on court, and was “happy” to get revenge on Cibulkova after losing to her last week. She was “happy” to be in the last 16, and she felt no pressure at being number one without a grand slam win.

“Hopefully this was a little bit different than usual,” she concluded, looking up from her notes with a big smile on her face as the media saw the funny side. “And now you can maybe give me some questions that are a little bit more interesting.”
