Top seed Caroline Wozniacki got into trouble last year when she said she'd been scratched by a kangaroo - and then admitted she'd made the story up. And the episode rebounded on her this year.
"I actually had a small kangaroo and I'm not kidding this time. I was holding a small kangaroo, baby kangaroo, trying to show that actually it was very nice to me this time. Do you know what it did afterwards? I gave it some milk, and it just spat it all over me. I was like, 'Is this a thank-you for just being nice and petting the kangaroo?' I got milk all over myself. I guess I deserved that from the story last year."
Wozniacki beat Jelena Jankovich on Sunday to enter the quarter-finals of the Australian Open.Â "My confidence is high, my fitness is good, I feel like my play is improving so I'm very positive," she had said after her match. Looks like her form and confidence deserts her off the court and when surrounded by Kangaroos.
