Women don’t get to play on big courts, claims Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki feels women are not scheduled fairly on the bigger courts at Wimbledon after the world No 5 crashed out of the tournament to No 20 seed Garbine Muguruza 6-4, 6-4 on Monday.


Caroline Wozniacki is another one-time world number one who has never been beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon.

The All England Club’s statement explained that the “scheduling of the programme of matches to be played each day at The Championships is a complex operation” and went on to list the factors it considers when allocating matches to Centre Court and Court No.1.

“When you can get the crowd involved in the match, it makes a huge difference to your performance”, the 28-year-old said.

During the first week at Wimbledon a total of 36 men’s matches were played on Centre Court and Courts One and Two, compared to 23 female matches.

“I definitely am the type of person that likes to have a laugh at themselves, especially when it looks like I have done something stupidly ridiculous”.

The first week of the tournament, the men’s matches on Centre Court outnumbered the women’s 14 to 8, and on Court 1 the discrepancy was 12 to 7.

Serena Williams wins against Venus Williams 6/4, 63; Maria Sharapova defeats Zarina Diyas 6/4, 6/4.

Canadian rapper Drake was also back among Serena Williams’s entourage after he was spotted at the All England Club last week. I’m really, really happy. From that on, servers dominated, and six games later, they were headed to a first set tiebreaker – much because the Spaniard’s play facing break points, as she saved 11 of 12. Wozniacki managed to quiet down the doubters, but for some reason, she can not progress past the round of 16 at Wimbledon.

“I would love to play on a big court”.

So naturally, a reporter asked Wozniacki about her ex-fiance.

In a statement, Wimbledon said that “complex and often conflicting factors need to be considered when the referee and his team create the daily order of play”, adding these included “the preference of TV, scheduling demands on players and the size of fan support for individual players”.

“Court Two hasn’t been very nice to me through the years”.

“It felt good”, she said about the match.


“I knew that Garbine was going to be tough”.
