Tennis upset

CAROLINE Wozniacki defeated world number one Karolina Pliskova 7-5 6-7(3) 6-4 in a marathon Rogers Cup quarter-finals match in Toronto marred by four rain delays yesterday.

The delays, which all came during the first set, appeared to boost the sixth-seeded Dane, who was trailing 3-0 when the match was interrupted.

Wozniacki appeared relaxed during the breaks, which gave her time to consult with her father and longtime coach Piotr Wozniacki, before she won five straight games and ultimately took the first set.

"Almost every tournament I've played this year there has been a rain delay so at this point I just have to laugh because I feel like it is following me," she said during a courtside interview after the three hour 26 minute match. Every time this year when it has been raining I've had a great tournament, so I thought this must be luck."
