Caroline Wozniacki is easy to forget about at this point in the WTA's 2017 season. Right now the battle at the top is between Garbine Muguruza, Karolina Pliskova, and Simona Halep. Furthermore, Jelena Ostapenko stole the show at the French Open, winning her first Grand Slam title there. However, Wozniacki is the World No. 6 heading into the 2017 Rogers Cup, and she remains a dangerous player on tour having made the deep rounds of numerous events so far this season.

Wozniacki's season recap

The former World No. 1 was last active in Sweden a couple of weeks ago, at a clay-court tournament in Bastad where she made the final before losing to Katerina Siniakova.

The loss in the final was nothing new for the Dane as she has fallen at that stage of a tournament numerous times during the 2017 season. Wozniacki lost in the Eastbourne final, the Miami final, the Dubai final, and the Doha final before Bastad. From one point of view, making the final of five tournaments is in itself distinguished. However, Wozniacki has yet to demonstrate the tournament-closing form that she did have in late 2016.

The Dane is on the order of play for Tuesday night at the 2017 Rogers Cup.

She will close Centre Court in Toronto with a match against Ekaterina Alexandrova, a little-known Russian player that came through the qualifying tournament over the weekend. As the sixth seed in Toronto, Wozniacki will avoid playing a player ranked higher than herself until at least the quarterfinals. At that point, she might have a match against Karolina Pliskova, the current World No. 1. Angelique Kerber and Johanna Konta share a draw to the final with the Dane, and they are possible semifinal match-ups should Wozniacki survive in Toronto that long.

Wozniacki interviewed recently

Wozniacki had a short interview with the WTA, one that they posted to their Youtube account a short time ago. The Dane mentioned that she was enjoying her time on tour at the moment because things are "more fun when you are winning." Things were not going so well for the Dane about a year ago. She mentioned that she is happy to be back at the Rogers Cup this season. Last season she missed the tournament with an injury a few weeks ahead of rediscovering some of her best tennis.

She posted a strong result at the 2016 US Open, making the semifinals of that tournament. Historically this time of year has been one of the best times for the Dane. Her two appearances in Grand Slam finals have both come at Flushing Meadows. She could be a key player this week as she looks to continue to post stellar results on the hard-court surface.
