Caroline Wozniacki in US Open quarterfinals tonight

Caroline Wozniacki reached the women's final of last year's US Open, only to fall to Kim Clijsters. This evening, Caroline Wozniacki can take another step towards a potential rematch.

Fans of the Boston Red Sox, otherwise known as Red Sox Nation, would accept Caroline Wozniacki as one of their own.

After Wozniacki won last month's Pilot Pen tournament in New Haven, Connecticut, the song "Sweet Caroline" was played over the stadium's loudspeakers. As any Fenway Park denizen would tell you, the Neil Diamond classic washes over the Red Sox crowd in the middle of the eighth inning and turns baseball fans into karaoke stars.

A tennis star in the making, Wozniacki has reached the quarterfinals of the US Open for the second straight year. Tonight, she'll face unseeded Dominika Cibulkova of Slovokia in New York. If the 20 year-old Dane wins, she'll be one step closer to a possible championship rematch against Kim Clijsters.
