Wozniacki mentioned during a press conference after the game that she was performing an impression of her friend and fellow tennis player Serena Williams.
Another blogger pointed out: 'It may have been done in “jest,” but I love how people can can turn a black woman’s body and sexuality into a caricature. However, we should not have the autonomy to celebrate any successes of our own.While on feministing.com, an article read: 'Given the history and current-day context of racialized standards of beauty, and the hypersexualization of people of color, when a white woman makes fun of a black women’s body, especially in a way that hypersexualizes her and draws on the stereotype of black women’s big butts, it’s racist.'
This was not the first time Wozniacki imitated the American icon - she copied her last year as well. The joke was not lost on Williams, who defeated Wozniacki in five of their six matches this year including quarter-finals at London Olympics. She tweeted: "Do they make Brazilian bikinis for, um, well, me?".
