WTA Rogers Cup: Caroline Wozniacki roars back to stun Karolina Pliskova

Pete Borkowski | Karolina Pliskova’s debut tournament as the world number one came to an early end on Friday, as she was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Rogers Cup by former world number one Caroline Wozniacki. In a rain-prolonged match that took over five hours from when the women first took the court, the top seed struggled with consistency, blowing leads in the first and third sets, allowing the tenacious Wozniacki to battle back and clinch a spot in the semifinals with a 7-5, 6-7(3), 6-4. Rain works to Wozniacki’s advantage The two women took the court at their scheduled start time of 12:30 pm, only to have to leave the court after the warm-up as the rain began to pour just before the opening serve. Nearly two hours later, the match got underway with Pliskova racing out of the gate. She used her big power to set up break points on Wozniacki’s serve, converting the second when the Dane sent a backhand long. After holding to take a 3-0 lead, the top seed held a triple break point opportunity for a double break, but put three straight balls into the net. As Wozniacki held game point at AD-40, the skies opened up again, forcing the pair to retreat to the locker room. Wozniacki follows through on a forehand during her quarterfinal win.
