Caroline Wozniacki and Vera Zvonareva played a marathon game on Thursday becoming one of the most dramatic matches so far in the season – end Championships. Caroline posted a 6-0, 6-7 (3), 6-4 victory over Vera Zvonareva.
Fourth seed Wozniacki,won 11 of the first 13 games against a visibly discourage Zvonareva who got into the White Group as an alternate after Dinara Safina was forced to leave the competition a day before. The match started as a walk in the park for Wozniacki, but due to her problems with her leg - which also caused her to withdraw from Luxembourg last week – the player started to lose power and strength allowing Zvonareva to take advantage of the situation wining four of the five games to take a lead by 4-3. But the dane kind of recover and took the lead back 5-4.
It was Wozniacki's second marathon win in two days: on Wednesday she rallied from a first set blowout and match point to beat Victoria Azarenka, 16 64 75. Later on Thursday, Zvonareva withdrew from the event with a right ankle injury and was replaced in the draw by fellow alternate Agnieszka Radwanska.
