Wozniacki has yet to reach the quarterfinals at the All England Club in 11 appearances but has advanced to that stage at the other three Grand Slam events, including two U.S. Open finals.
If that wasn't enough, here's some added spice: it will also be the first time the pair have met in a competitive environment since an ill-tempered Fed Cup clash between Romania and Great Britain in April. I think until this year he hasn't played so well on the grass himself.
"I didn't talk much about that subject with her", Halep said. "They were not being verbally threatened". That's why when I think of those with the best drop shots they all tend to be modern players.
The Eastbourne-based player sprung a major surprise by splitting with Spanish coach Carril a month later and then bought in one of the women's tour's most experienced coaches in Wim Fissette at the start of the year.
