Wozniacki may never return to the No. 1 ranking. Maybe her game won't permit that. Maybe her body won't permit that. ("I guess I'm getting old," she said. "It's like a car that is 10 years old, all of sudden it starts breaking down.") But she won't be undone by having a wedding scuttled. And in many ways, Tuesday's performance, both on and off the court, is more impressive and more admirable than winning a stupid golf tournament.
