WHO: Caroline Wozniacki

WHAT: Wozniacki — the Danish third-seeded tennis player — received criticism for an interview she gave to ESPN The Magazine at the French Open when she said she would “love” the chance to play a match against Maria Sharapova on the WTA Tour.

When asked about her comments on Friday, Wozniacki downplayed them.

“It’s tennis, and sometimes you say things and you want to delete them, and sometimes you keep them,” she said. “I’ve been doing this for a long time. Maybe I get distracted by being young, but if I continue to do that, I’m going to lose the game, I’m going to lose myself, and then you’re probably not going to have any winners. So I just have to deal with it and hopefully you’ll all forgive me.”

On Sunday, after finishing her third-round match in the French Open with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Julia Goerges, Wozniacki provided an apology to Sharapova for the comments. “On the French Open tour, we have said this week that I haven’t played since 2005. That’s something I really didn’t have the right information for,” she said. “Sorry about that.”
