Question Who will have a more successful career - Wozniacki or Azarenka?

I'm totally running with the Caro/Vika craze atm...

I'm pretty sure there's already been a thread about which one is the better player, but I want to know who you guys think will actually be more successful at retirement. I ask this as there have been many talented players who have failed to reach their potential, or otherwise 'lucky' grand slam winners etc etc etc..

I'm defining singles success as grand slam titles, career titles, career high ranking/weeks at #1 (if any, although it seems probable at some stage)... and whatever else you define success as. Thus, it's arguable that Wozniacki has had the more successful career so far... but what about in the long run?

Williams, Mauresmo, Cornet, Kuznetsova, Petrova, Safina, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Hantuchova, K. Bondarenko, Zheng, Sugiyama, all Aussies

I think Wozniacki. She has a better head and she can still improve loads. When she gains more power she will be dominating

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

Wozniacki already passed her peak and will never reach another Grand-Slam-semi. Azarenka needs to learn to close out matches. Her game is a little bit onesided but she will break into Top 3 like Wozniacki did.

But you got to admit that Wozniacki was pretty lucky with the draw at last year's US-Open! ;-)

I don't know. If we are to believe all the hate threads we have here on a daily basis when it comes to Caro she's such an awful player that no draw should be easy for her. In fact, since everyone else is supposed to be better she caused an upset in each round. Those other players were the ones who had an easy draw and they blew it by losing to Caro. So, congrats to Wozniacki for beating six better players in a row.

As for the poll, I'm sure that fans will vote for their favorite player (I'm no different) and most of the others will vote for Azarenka because they don't like Wozniacki. Whether that's really their honest opinion about who will have the more successful career is open to question. It's more a matter of who they want to have the more successful career than who they think will have the more successful career.

I think Azerenka. She has a better game and she's more aggressive. You cant wait for an opponent to give you oppertunities like Caro does, Vika makes oppertunities. If she get a few things straightened out, she could possibly even be a slam winner in the future.

Re: Who will have a more successful career - Wozniacki or Azarenka?

i think vika... she just seems to have more weapons (disregarding that serve)... i would like to see her hit a little flatter and through the court more, and maybe clean up the forehand technique... like the volleys though...

Re: Who will have a more successful career - Wozniacki or Azarenka?

vika may be more "aggressive", but caro has the better head atm and again, winning one set doesn't mean vika can win big matches until she actually does win them...

eta: it's probably easier to improve your game than your head...and caro has shown then when she does play aggressive (like she did against vika at yec) that she can beat even vika

Re: Who will have a more successful career - Wozniacki or Azarenka?

In all honesty, although I'm beginning to warm to Vika I just don't think either of them are as good as people are making them out to be. On one hand Caroline is simply too passive and just doesn't have enough skill or power to actually 'win' something without an incredible draw.

And then Vika who is more of an aggressive Zvonareva. As aggressive as she is, she herself can be bullied by bigger hitters. However she is consistently aggressive which counts for a lot right now so Vika it is!

Wozniacki. Unless Azarenka stops pretending to be a hardhitter and buys herself a somewhat potent first serve.

Wow
That was great! You should write this in some Caro hate thread. A "hater" will have trouble to find an answer to that

and Car can? Playing Safina and Serenax2 in your first 3 GS QF's is not the same as playing Oudin in your only GS QF. I'd say so far Vika has done better in the slams. Plus her biggest title far exceeds anything Caro has won. So for all her "better head" and "consistency", Caro has still managed to be the more inconsistent and ineffective of the two in the biggest matches.


And aside from all that, Vika already has 2 grand slams. I think her doubles will be a huge help whenever this comparison is brought up in the coming years.

Too early to say. I wouldn't be surprised either way.
