Caroline Wozniacki is quickly becoming the Family Circle Cup crowd favorite now that Patty Schnyder has played in her final tournament on Daniel Island.
Wozniacki defeated Yanina Wickmayer, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, in a quarterfinal on Friday, and is counting on a good meal and good rest to help her today. She's also hoping to have the crowd in her corner -- again.
"This amazing crowd that I've had this week, I mean it's unbelievable everyone is cheering for me and it's such a great feeling coming back here," Wozniacki said. "I feel like a local, really.
"You know, it's fantastic, so who wouldn't want to play out there on the stadium in my position."
Wickmayer also acknowledged Wozniacki's popularity is growing.
"Well, I guess she's the No. 1 player, and I think she's a girl that everyone likes," Wickmayer said. "The crowd was very good, even if it was on her side. I really enjoyed playing on center court with a lot of people."
