In searching through some sports videos, I came across one from tennis titled, as you see, "Kim Clijsters threatens to shove a ball down Caroline Wozniacki throat." I was a bit surprised by this since Caroline Wozniacki's reputation is quite good -- not just as a former #1 player, but someone with a friendly and funny, outgoing personality. (She once sneaked into a post-match press conference for Novak Djokvic at sedate Wimbeldon and began interviewing him.) And I've never heard of any complaints about Ms. Clijsters. (Pronounced Kly-sters.) So, I clicked on it to find out what in the world was going on.
It turns out to be a charming, very amusing video. It takes place during an exhibition doubles match, and at one point, Ms. Wozniacki walks over to the referee's chair and wants to switch places, handing him her racquet. And once she takes control of the match, she begins to call all the points against her opponents for any number of violations. Which brings about the "confrontation" in question.
All of which goes to confirm Caroline Wozniacki's reputation friendly and funny.
