Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

I think she can go far. I don't see too many obvious weaknesses. She hits hard, runs very fast, volleys aren't too bad, and she's quite smart. Caroline was hitting the ball hard but she was thinking very well at the same time. Sweet girl too.

Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

i think she's good for her age. naturally, she doesn't hit as hard as the top players, but that will come with time.

Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

her backhand today was def top 10 material.

i think Caro has a very bright future. but i think she needs to drive through her forehand more and her service toss is a little high. but she has a very very solid game.

Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

She was very good actually. Her serve needs some work I thought but then she used it very effectively in this match. She also moves very well and seems like a very nice girl. Hopefully she will stay that way when IMG gets ahold of her and turns her into the next Stepford Tennis Wife. That being said Akiko played a horrible match. She just seemed a bit out of sorts. Congrats Caroline, you will definitely go far

Haha. I love that serve. It seemed to have worked to her advantage today.

Re: caroline wozniacki's potential

To me, she came across as a young(er) Vaidisova with a dash of Dementieva in her. She has a nice backhand DTL , is a pretty good mover, and her forehand was pretty decent. I like that she came to net on short balls, and she didn't choke while trying to serve the match out. However, that skyscrapper ball toss could be a cause of concern in the future.

On the female site, Eva Dyrbjerg did quite ok, reached top 100 I think, but decided to focus on studies instead...

Caro

Lleyton - Broccoli-boy
Kim - The future number one(no jinxing!)
