LONDON, Great Britain - If you go to Caroline Wozniacki's house and take a peek in the kitchen cupboards, you'll spot a good supply of candy.
That sweetie store will end when she assumes the mantle of honorary aunt to the baby of her close friend Serena Williams.
"I would think I'm a great baby-sitter - I'm not sure she agrees," the Dane told reporters at Wimbledon. "She has told me already some set rules that I'm not allowed to do - I usually have candy around the house. That's not allowed any more. I'm trying to follow her rules, but we'll see."
The 26-year-old faces American CoCo Vandeweghe in the Wimbledon round of 16 on Monday, after a battling 3-6, 7-6, 6-2 win against Estonia's Anett Kontaveit. Pundits have been enthusing about the number of women who could conceivably win the title - but Wozniacki is not thinking that far ahead yet.
She isn't even thinking about who she might meet in the quarterfinals should she make it past Vandeweghe.
"I just play," she said. "I never look at the draw. I never really know anything. I just play. I have a match in front of me, and I try to beat the opponent that is right in front of me. I don't really worry too much about anything else."
She is, however, very aware of the challenge that 24th seed Vandeweghe poses.
"She's a big server and a big hitter," said Wozniacki. "Obviously she likes the grass, so it's not going to be an easy one."
The pair will meet on Wimbledon's Court 3; as always on the second Monday, the schedule is crammed full of exciting clashes, meaning some of the top seeds will be playing on an outer court rather than a show court. Wozniacki thinks that's great for the spectators - and for the players.
"I think it's awesome," she said. "They get to watch so many of the top names playing at the same time - [we] get to play on the outer courts, as well. I think for the fans, it's great."
