Wozniacki and Sharapova exchange words over scheduling…

Caroline Wozniacki has hit out at the USTA for their scheduling and she is spot on!

Last year Caro came into New York ranked outside the top 70 in the world but she fought hard and is now ranked 5 in the world and incredibly got pushed out on one of the outside courts 5th on court so Sharapova could play on Ashe…

Wozniacki said she thought it was unacceptable that the world number 5 was put 5th on court 5 after 11am. She went on to question the USTA’s decision to have all of Sharapova’s matches on centre which doesn’t send out the best message for a player returning from a drugs ban.

I’m totally with Wozniacki with the fact it doesn’t set a good example but the organisers have shown what is more important with scheduling and that is money.

Since Wozniacki’s comments Sharapova has hit back…

“Regards to scheduling, as you know I don’t make the schedule. And you know I’m a pretty big competitor and if you put me out in the parking lot at queens in New York City I’m happy to play there. That’s not what matters to me, all that matters is that I’m in the fourth round and I’m not sure where she is. (Wozniacki lost in R1)”

Ouch…

The debate will go on every tournament and I am with Wozniacki as it doesn’t send out the correct message and if anything has been welcomed back with open arms but at the same time Sharapova doesn’t have a say on where she plays.
