Caroline Wozniacki's impression of Serena Williams draws decidedly mixed reviews

Not content with jokes about being attacked by kangaroos, Caroline Wozniacki has once again been courting controversy, this time by doing an impression of rival Serena Williams in an exhibition match against Maria Sharapova, which thousands have called racist.
Wozniacki stuffed towels down various parts of her clothing, and it worked: Sharapova hasn’t beaten Williams for eight years and she duly lost the next point.
Fans couldn’t agree on what was more galling: Wozniacki’s lack of originality, as better impressions have already been done by Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick, or her racism, but at least one YouTube commenter agreed she was on the right track. “Maybe if she imitated Serena's actual tennis, she'd win a little more,” he noted.
