Photos of Wozniacki and Kirilenko in new Stella gear + sneak peek at EleVen 2014

Earlier this month Adidas released the promotional photo with the slogan "Take over down under" for their Ana Ivanovic's blue Australian Open Adizero dress and soon afterwards we got a closer look at the item, as well as the first images of the new dress by Stella McCartney for Adidas and Caroline Wozniacki. This morning at TennisIDENTITY.com I found images of the Danish WTA star and Maria Kirilenko, another Stella representative, working the new kits of the British fashion designer.

My first verdict on the yellow dress was far from positive and I'm still waiting to see it in action and on Caroline's body, in order to possibly change my mind, but, quite surprisingly, separates from the collection are actually quite a hit, right? Read more »

Kerber Ends Wozniacki's Reign in Copenhagen

At times today in the finals of the e-Boks Open in Copenhagen, Germany's Angelique Kerber probably thought the whole city was against her as she took on local favorite and two-time reigning champion Caroline Wozniacki.

Kerber came out firing as she broke Wozniacki in her opening service game. Each woman exchanged breaks early in the set, but it was Kerber, especially with her powerful forehand, who ended up the winner in most of the extended rallies. Kerber's defense forced Wozniacki to hit winners of her own, 8 in total for the first set, but it was a series of late errors from the Dane at 4-5 that gave Kerber the set. Read more »

Wozniacki says will go all out in pursuit of a grand slam title in 2012

Women's world number one tennis player Caroline Wozniacki will put all efforts into winning a grand slam title in 2012, she said Wednesday.

"There are five really big tournaments next year, and I will focus strongly on them. I will make every effort to win a grand slam title, and a medal at the Olympics," Wozniacki told Danish daily newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

The 21-year-old Wozniacki, who is Danish, has held the world number one position throughout 2011, but has never won a grand slam title in her career.

However, she suggested that her quest for a grand slam title could lead to her dropping down the world rankings.

"These are my big goals," she said, referring to the grand slam and Olympic titles, "and if the fact that I prioritize differently should mean that I lose my first place ranking, then I just have to accept that."

Wozniacki finished 2011 on top of the rankings following six WTA victories this year in Dubai, Indian Wells, Charleston, Brussels, Copenhagen and New Haven.

She was also named the Danish Tennis Association's Player of the Year for the fifth year in a row here Tuesday.

But critics suggest that the attention she has received as the world' s best female tennis player may have led to a loss of focus in her game. And that has meant her grand slam trophy cabinet is empty.

Wozniacki herself accepted that it is time to change focus. "I will think a little bit more about myself, and not so much about my first place rank," she told Ekstra Bladet, adding that she would focus on one tournament at a time.
