Caroline Wozniacki Australian Open: Is She Officially No Longer Boring?

0 of 11

    When the seeding for the Australian Open came out, it was no surprise to see the World's number one, Caroline Wozniacki as the first seed of the tournament.

    A lot has changed since then. It's not that 20-year old Wozniacki shouldn't be the number one seed. She is currently in the semifinals and will leave the tournament still the number one player in women's tennis no matter what happens.

    What has changed is that a lot more people now care. Wozniacki is in the process from going to an athlete to pop culture/sex symbol icon.

    When reports that some in the media were calling her and her stock answers boring, Wozniacki went on the non-boring offensive.

    With recent events, it is time to open the case of Caroline Wozniacki Vs. Boring.

    Everyone gets tired of athletes cliche filled answers to questions. This is largely what brought about the boring label in the first place.

    So, when Wozniacki was asked why she had a bandage on her leg she claimed it was the result of a viscous kangaroo attack. Of course, it later came out that she fabricated the whole story, but that's pretty interesting, too.

    Boring: No

Dedication To Form

    Perfectionism rarely leads to an exciting life. It means hours upon hours of practicing a certain skill. In the picture perfect for of Wozniacki's serve, it is apparent that she is a perfectionist.

    Boring: Yes

    Boring: No

Tan Lines

    Notice the defined tan lines? While this can largely be attributed to the amount of time she spends playing tennis, it is no excuse. Tan lines are a sure sign of a boring person.

Kisses Own Hand

    What boring nerd among us didn't try to practice a kiss on their own hand or arm before they attempted the real deal. I know I did. The fact that Caroline is 20 and still needs to do this can only lead to one conclusion...

    Boring: Yes

    Couch potatoes do not need to stretch. There is nothing to be limber for. Caroline lives in a constant state of stretch to help her stayed prepared for her lifestyle that requires her to be ready for whatever comes her way.

    Boring: No
