Dominika’s Slovakian dance party
While Americans dined in their homes on Thanksgiving feasts, a pair of WTA stars entertained in Bratislava, Slovakia. Ahead of an exhibition match against hometown girl Dominika Cibulkova, Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki let loose her dance moves on the court, replete with pom-poms and a makeshift "Macarena" performance. It's good to see Wozniacki letting herself have some fun, but one has to think if she was just trying to keep up with the self-proclaimed "party girl" Cibulkova on a club's dance floor. Maybe it was that champagne toast with her friendly little foe, but Caro really let herself go at this event. It's commendable, the lack of self-conscious inhibition, very childlike but in a good way in this case. For what it's worth, Cibulkova won the match, 6-4, 2-6, 10-3.
Love and marriage?
