Bad hair play: Wozniacki's hair gets caught in her racket during a point

Thursday August 28th, 2014

No. 10 Caroline Wozniacki beat Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-3, 6-4 in straight sets Wednesday to move on to the third round of the U.S. Open, but she did have face a hairy situation on the court to get the win. 

As Wozniacki was about to return a volley, her braid got tangled with her racket and she couldn't swing -- resulting in a missed return and a point for Sasnovich. Luckily, Wozniacki was in good spirits after her match on the Grandstand court.

"It was really tangled up good. I think all my hair would have to come off first before that was going anywhere," Wozniacki said after the match.
