Wozniacki might have just turned 20, but she is already bordering on some uncharted waters here at the 2010 US Open. She is now playing in her second straight semifinal here at the US Open, which is also just her second semi ever in a Grand Slam event. The Dane was the runner up to Kim Clijsters last year, and she would love to see a rematch setup at Arthur Ashe Stadium this weekend. Neither Maria Sharapova in the fourth round nor Dominika Cibulkova in the quarterfinals were able to do much with the finesse game of Wozniacki. She was only broken twice against the Slovakian in a 6-2, 7-5 victory, and recorded five breaks of her own. The top seed also did a fantastic job limiting mistakes, as she committed just 18 unforced errors in relation to the whopping 43 of Cibulkova.
The Russian princess of tennis right now is Zvonareva, who is going to look to play in her second straight Grand Slam finale after finishing as the runner up at Wimbledon earlier this year. This is the first time that Zvonareva has reached the semifinals at the US Open, but that was also the case on the grass courts of the All England Club as well. The seventh seed in this tournament really showed no signs of fatigue in spite of the fact that she was already playing her ninth match here at Flushing (including doubles) against Kaia Kanepi on Wednesday. Zvonareva blew through her quarterfinal 7-5, 6-3, making her a perfect 10-0 in singles sets so far in Flushing.
At just 20 years old, we aren’t so sure that Wozniacki has earned the right to be this heavy of a favorite against such a stout competitor. Zvonareva has a lot better power game than anyone that the Dane has faced yet in this tournament, and we tend to think that an upset might be in the cards if Wozniacki isn’t careful. Either way, this should be a great match, and we think these are great odds on a woman who already knows what it is like to be in a final at a Grand Slam event this year.
