New York: Caroline Wozniacki adjusted and adjusted again, and finally found the secret sauce to upset Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open on Sunday.
Wozniacki, seeded 10th, defeated the fifth-seeded Sharapova, 6-4, 2-6, 6-2, by employing two separate game plans to win two different sets and advance to the quarterfinals.
Wozniacki won the first set by stretching the court and making Sharapova play as much as possible out of her strike zone. Sharapova committed 28 errors in the opening set, mainly out wide near the alleys reaching for the ball. Sharapova was not able to consistently get her energy behind the ball as her arms were trying to play catch-up for what her legs could not get to.
