U.S. Open: Caroline Wozniacki gets hair caught in racket
Despite her hair being caught, Wozniacki still tries to return volley
Danish tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki got tangled up at the U.S. Open on Wednesday.
In her second-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus, Wozniacki's braided hair got stuck in the frame of her tennis racket as she went into her back swing, trying to return a volley.
The mishap didn’t faze her though, as she won in straight sets, 6-3 6-4 on the Grandstand court to secure a place in the third round.
"It used to happen when I didn't braid my hair," the 2009 finalist told AFP.
"That's why I started braiding it. Once it gets to a certain length sometimes it can get stuck in the arm or the racket.
"It's a first, you know, when it's braided that it's been stuck that good in my racket.... I still tried to hit the ball. Almost took my head off."
