Player of the week: Caroline Wozniacki

19 year old Danish player Caroline Wozniacki showed once again in New Haven that her progression is on the good way as she captured her 3rd WTA title this season. And she did it without dropping a set during the tournament and dropping no more than 7 games on each match.

Caroline enjoyed an easy start of tournament, as she was drawn Lucky Loser Edina Gallovits, who got double baggeled by Wozniaki. Wozniacki also sweeped promising Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the 2nd round, and Top-20 Virginie Razzano in the quarter-final wasn't much of a problem for her either. In the semis Wozniacki had a real test against 3rd seed and Top-10 Flavia Pennetta, who is in great form lately. But Caroline was far superior and got a clear victory to get her place in the final. There she stopped surprising Elena Vesnina's run.

We have seen many times now that she is able to be very consistent in the minor tournaments, now it's time for her to get a big achievement in a Grand Slam. She will have a chance in the US Open.
