Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

Other than that one great point, the wheels have come off for Woz in the last 3 games. This is the first time I've seen her play, the haters are ridiculous. She has a nice game.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

Well she did play doubles at this US Open.
Her and Cristea played pretty good against Venus and Serena.
When you respect Kim's passing ability, it's tough not to get a little loose on the volleys.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

She's not that agresive all the time.
When she doesn't feel she has to, she's quite passive.

But kudos to her on going for it in her biggest match ever.

Spoke too soon. Suddenly we are on the 2nd Deuce of Kim's service game and now a break point.
It's an interesting matchup. Kim fighting the spin and Wozniacki fighting an elite elite player.

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

Damn she's serving for the set now-Clijsters an UE machine at the moment

Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together.

I AGREE! THE HATERS ARE MAINLY BALL BASHING WILLIAMS AND SHARAPOVA FANS. IF SHE BECOMES A BETTER VOLLEYER, SHE COULD BE A GREAT PLAYER.

She's playing a good match for her first slam final. People really need to get off her back.

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

She's still young, so hopefully the volleys will improve as she gains more big match experience. She's had a few more chances to sneak in and finish off points, but has retreated. But she's doing pretty well in the biggest match of her life, especially compared to some GS final trainwrecks we've seen before...

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

I think she's playing really well; nice smart tennis. Sure her volleys aren't the best, but at least they are over the net and in the court and she is winning a lot of those points.

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

That was a thoroughly enjoyable 1st set imo.

Caro has such a watchable game, it's fascinating.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović

Re: Should wozniacki learn how to volley?

BTW, since I never joined the Men's forum, I'll just take this opportunity to say Roger Federer plays at a level far above anything tennis has seen before. Djokovic is a monster just to hang with him.
