Caroline Wozniacki Imitates Rafael Nadal's Cramps At Press Conference (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A day after leg cramps seized Rafael Nadal during a post-match press conference at the U.S. Open, landing him on the floor beneath the interview table and sending the tennis world into a brief tizzy, the world No. 1 women's star pantomimed some pain of her own after surviving a thrilling three-set match.

Addressing the media following her thrilling comeback triumph over Svetlana Kuznetsova, Wozniacki imitated Nadal's press conference cramping, sliding down her chair just like Nadal did. The only difference was that she had a big smile on her face.

After his win on Sunday, the Spaniard cramped up, grimaced and began moaning in pain in front of the cameras and dozens of reporters. He later brushed off the incident and said he was "just have cramping in my leg."

As is often the case whenever an athlete makes an attempt at humor, some people thought it was inappropriate for her to poke fun at Nadal, while others thought it was simply a funny joke.

Besides, it's not like Wozniacki hasn't cracked jokes at a Grand Slam before. In a press conference shortly before Wimbledon, she surreptitiously made her way into the interview room at the All England Club and asked Novak Djokovic about his "losing streak of one." Everyone in the room, including Djokovic, got a kick out of it.
