Wozniacki has requested the tournament's organisers to arrange a trip to Matamata, where Hobbiton is located. "I love Auckland. It's an amazing tournament and there are so many things I want to go and see. Hobbiton is definitely one of the things I haven't seen and I would love to see it," Wozniacki told Newstalk ZB's Tony Veitch yesterday. Woniacki is a regular at the tournament having featured on four previous occasions. She's also done some sightseeing around Auckland, including visiting the Waiheke and Great Barrier Islands.
