If I had to bet my life on Graf or Pironkova/Cibulkova/Zakopalova/Rezai in one match, I´d die before trusting those four.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)
-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.
No you're quite right she wouldn't break the top 20 as she is too injury prone, even now.
However, healthy, on a given day, forget top 20 - she could play to a top 10 level for a set, perhaps a match if she practised hard enough. I like what I saw from her in the clip and in the Wimbledon exhibition. The 22-time Grand Slam winner still has her game intact, and some play/confidence would sharpen it.
(1)A lot is being made of the record Serena has vs Sharapova. It is being used as THE reason she will win again lol. Good thing we have players like Tomas Berdych (who had an even worse record vs Nadal) to remind us of the fallacy of this nonsense logic.
(2)You stans may as well sleep well tonight because tomorrow the a replay of Lucie's winning moment over and over again will haunt your dreams for weeks to come
(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
Re: Should Steffi Graf come back and save the WTA Tour?
Absolutely not. Just because she was hitting a good ball with Petkovic doesn't mean she has what it takes to get back to the top 20 at her age. Sure, I could see her surprising one of today's players with her game, but that doesn't mean she can do it again the next day, or the day after that. People often forget how tough these tournaments are compared to the slams, where there's a day of rest between matches.
