Former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, who has not reached the final of a major since the 2009 U.S. Open, still believes she can be an elite player. Wozniacki is currently ranked No. 8 but seeded sixth in Flushing Meadows.
 
“I love proving people wrong, and I love what I do,” Wozniacki said after her first-round win. “I live the life I have always dreamed of, and I have a passion and I have something to wake up for every morning. I enjoy it. It’s great. This is fun. Yeah, playing out on the big courts.”
 
The Dane, who sometimes boxes as a part of her training, also compared the two sports.
 
“You get one hit, and if you’re strong enough you still stand. So it’s all about being able to, avoid the hits obviously, but be strong enough to take some hits and then hit back. Then have your killer instinct.”
