Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick emerge victorious at the MSG event
Maria Sharapova beat Caroline Wozniacki and Andy Roddick outplayed Roger Federer in two fun filled exhibition matches at the Madison Square Garden.

Maria Sharapova and Caroline Wozniacki put up a good, light show for the crowd in the Madison Square Garden as Sharapova ended on the victorious side. She beat the Dane 6-3, 6-4 as Wozniacki invited her boyfriend Rory McIlroy on court, who just a few hours before won the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens and also reached a new high at No.1 in the world.

Wearing casuals, McIlroy played just one point against Sharapova and managed winning it when Sharapova hit his lob wide. McIlroy then joked by saying, “I've won a few off Caroline.” He also commented, “ It's nice to take a little break from golf,” when he was signing autographs for his fans. Wozniacki made the atmosphere lighter when she started joking. Referring to McIlroy, she said, “He's 100 percent against Maria,” she told the crowd. When asked about her sending flowers to McIlroy after his triumph on Sunday, Wozniacki said, “Well, I don't want his head to become too big, so, um, no.”

In the second match, Andy Roddick beat Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6(7) at the BNP Paribas Showdown. Roddick is 2-21 in his career against Federer. “I'm obviously in Roger's head,” Roddick joked after winning in his first appearance at the Garden. He further made the crowd laugh by stating, “I think Jeremy Lin wanted me to win tonight.”
