Wimbledon 2011: Caroline Wozniacki Gatecrashes Novak Djokovic Press Conference

Women's world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki gatecrashed her friend Novak Djokovic's pre-Wimbledon press conference yesterday to tease him about his "losing streak."

Djokovic had gone 43 games unbeaten before Roger Federer beat him in the semifinal of the French Open.

"You had this losing streak of one, so what are you going to do to change that?" asked Wozniacki.

"Well, you know what? I will try to look up to some women players who have been so consistent with their wins—for example, like Caroline Wozniacki. I don't know if you've heard about her," replied Djokovic. "She's been winning so much. I'm going to try to look some of her matches and try to break this losing streak of one, you know, try to get on the right path."

Wozniacki then asked Djokovic who his favourite female player was, to which he replied that it was "a secret," but added, "I think I already discovered one of my favourite women's players. I just said her name. She's actually my neighbour, as well...she actually lives in the street where you come from. From time to time we have coffee there on the beach and just relax and have lunch, have a jog."

Unsurprisingly, the tour and tournament officials failed to see the funny side of the skit, and had a quiet word to Wozniacki, who announced, "I cannot even talk anymore. They're pulling me."

She then left the rest of the press pack to get on with asking their "serious" questions.

Of course, it's not the first time Wozniacki has had a joke in her press conference—check the video to see her at the Australian Open.
