Henin on Wozniacki: "Smart. She never plays two balls in a row with the same rhythm."

One more quote to get the haters riled up

Henin on Wozniacki:

Quote:
"She's really smart. She never plays two balls in a row with the same rhythm. She forced me to play my best and work hard. I was in deep trouble in the first set. I had a hard time finding a balance between aggression and patience. It was the kind of match I really needed and even though I was tired toward the end, I managed to win."

Hahaha. How would this fit into the haters' tiny minds.
This Henin perhaps knows it better than TF experts do, so it may hurt.

Re: Henin on Wozniacki: "Smart. She never plays two balls in a row with the same rhyt

Caro plays to discomfort opponents (so the label "pusher" is much too simplistic). If she can find a way to mix in pace and positional aggression, she could win slams, be some updated version of Hingis, etc....

But she's at crossroads familiar to many other players (Hingis v2, Jankovic, toss in Murray from the ATP). Post-2001 on both tours, when you're trying to strike that elusive, perfect balance between Aggression and Retrieval, it always best to be coming to that balance from the A-side rather than the R, and to have at least one shot that is instinctively, naturally punishing.

Otherwise, you end up giving your opponent ample time and opportunity to strike her own balance, as Justine did over the 3 sets.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Henin was clearly lying right?

I don't get all the hate for wozniacki, sure she doesn't blast winners, but she plays a smart defensive game and she wins a lot. surely that deserves some respect

Re: Henin on Wozniacki: "Smart. She never plays two balls in a row with the same rhyt

I'm a Justine fan, and not a Wozniacki hater, and here is my take on the match:
Wozniacki played a step in the right direction against Justine. It wasn't just loopy balls with tons of topspin 99% of the time by her. Came to the net more, attacked more.
Still far from enough IMO.

However, to say that she never plays two balls with the same rhythm? I don't get that Justine

Queen of Asia.

And I don't care anymore for the incredible flat comments about Juju or Caro or Daniela or JJ or...

All these dimwits just wanna see speedy rallies, fh after fh without variety of the different players. Not thinking about different approaches to get their opponent out of rythm.

They just want monotony and speed, nothing else, just to get t in their brains...

this would be the death of tennis, not Caro being #2 or Juju reaching the top5 again...

go
Aga_DanI- BeLInDA- CArO_Jelena

Angelique Kerber | Ana Ivanovic | Annika Beck

forgive, you will never reach the level of my loyalty for the best that has ever played:

I think it may be something like Jankovic's game occasionally. It doesn't look all that when you watch it, but clearly there something that bothers other players, something that may not be noticeable on TV.

No offence, but there's a big difference between those three and her. Henin, Hantuchova and Jankovic all have far more entertaining games than Wozniacki. I'm not commenting on the effectiveness of Wozniacki's game though, because it is very effective against almost everyone on tour.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

If anything, this match just reminded Justine of Aniko Kapros.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

And why can't you accept it, live with it ?
Just b/c it's sth different?
I just like it when players bring differnt styles into the game.
Just like Hingis or Monica making Steffi searching for other weapons. It made the game vivid.

Don't like Caro. But I know it's one of her qualities, to make the opponent think about what to do next
