Re: Would Caroline Woz be favoured now if she were to play Venus or Serena?
Both Williamses are out with injury so I'm sure she can beat them right now.
I think people are underestimating Venus and overestimating Serena in this match-up.
Playing defensively against Venus never cuts it. She has stellar records against players like Shahar, etc. You have to be able to take your chances and go for quick hard strikes the moment you have an opportunity - that's how you mess up Venus's rhythm and that's when her strokes will break down. Wozniacka really isn't that quick... against Venus, having good court positioning and an excellent defensive game plan doesn't cut it. I'll favour Venus if she were to play Caro by a slight margin.
On the other hand, I think Wozniacka can outrally Serena, who unlike Venus, doesn't usually go all out on her groundstrokes. Her groundstrokes have a lot more height, which place into Wozniacka's hands. But Serena still has the edge because of the serve.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
