Karolina: "The young generation is deep. Serena will be challenged."

Miami - World number one Caroline Wozniacki said Tuesday that a tennis return for recovering Serena Williams would be good for the sport - but warned that the new generation has already staked a claim on the top of the game.

Quote:
Serena has achieved so much (13 Grand Slams) that I'd also like to achieve.
said the 20-year-old world number one Dane in the run-up to her second-round start at the Miami Masters. 'But for Serena, getting fit again is the most important thing.

Quote:
I considered her a friend, but we have a good younger generation coming up, the competition is very deep now. Serena will have a good challenge.
The 30-year-old younger Williams sister is still recovering from surgery in February to remove a blood clot in her lungs and has no timetable set for a return to the sport after last playing nine months ago at Wimbledon. Her elder sister Venus also pulled from Miami with a longstanding abdominal injury.

The pair consider the tournament their home event and have won eight of the past 13 women's title between them, with Serena claiming five during a seven-year run.

Wozniacki visited Williams in Los Angeles earlier in the month and has spoken to the American in recent days.
Quote:
I wish her well and hope she comes back soon.
said the Indian Wells champion who claimed six trophies in 2010 and two so far in 2011.

Wozniacki, who receives a bye in the first round like the other 31 women's seeds at the dual-sex event, again disputed criticism that holding the top ranking without having won a Grand Slam is somehow shameful for the sport.

Quote:
I want to be number one and win a Grand Slam. When you're young you think of being number one, you don't know yet what those Grand Slams mean or how important they are.
Quote:
I've reached one of my goals and now I'm going after my other
said Wozniacki.

The Dane said that she feels she has the game to eventually break through into the ranks of Grand Slam champions.
Quote:
I have a lot of weapons, offensive and defensive. You don't win big events without them.
Quote:
A Grand Slam title for me is hopefully just a matter of time. I'm on the right way.
Women's play was getting underway Tuesday with men due to start their event on Wednesday.

Serena's losses since Jan 2009 -

Dementieva (x3), Venus Williams, Patty Schnyder, Klara Zakapalova, Francesca Schiavone, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Kim Clijsters, Nadia Petrova (x2), Jelena Jankovic, Samantha Stosur (2), Sybille Bammer, Victoria Azarenka.

The younger generation has certainly showed promise against her and will make it tough for her

Re: Karolina: "The young generation is deep. Serena will be challenged."

She makes it sound like Serena's been out for five years. What's changed between July 2010 and March 2011? How many more tough younger players do we have challenging at slams/big events? Exactly.

Serena hasnt been incredible at the nonmajors. Caro, with 5 straight Tier I's, she is incredible at nonmajors. I dont know if Serena will care if Caro is #1 by 3000 points, as long as she can add to 13 major titles. Caro is still looking for her first. But some people feel that once she wins 1, more are coming

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

She better take the chance and win the RG cause Serena will be back to kick some a**. Dream on Caro, the young generation is no where to be found. Its because of Caro's "domination", i am missing Serena now.

Gotta love the Serbian girls

And, so? If she said "water is wet" you'd also want to discuss it?

That may be true Caroline but facts are facts, Serena healthy and playing is still 50% better than u in all aspects of the game. Deal with it. And as for the " rest" of her generation... Don't make me laugh... None are better than either sister. Good luck with that.

Re: Karolina: "The young generation is deep. Serena will be challenged."

She was being nice... I mean she isn't even close to winning back to back majors and yet she is making claims she will be winning 13 grand slam titles !!! Jesus is this girl on crack? I'm sorry but her game does not impress me. True she's better than before but ... Her rivals are mostly inferior and the whole tour has gone down a level or two in my opinion ... Maybe not as a whole but certainly amongst the top ten there is no one player that makes me think " wow your a champion" those days are over .... So sad

It is her opinion, but I can't see the big difference she speaks of.......Am I missing something?

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Yes, she will be challenged but not defeated.

I'm not sure how accurate this quote is as there is no link to a source but assuming the quote is correct here is what she said:

Quote:

She would like to achieve what Serena has achieved (winning 13 grand slams). She did not say she will win 13 slams. Yeah, she must be on crack, what player would want to win thirteen slams? Next time please read more carefully before jumping to conclusions that are not supported by the facts.

Exactly, not a "young'n" in the bunch...Caro can scream as much as she wants these days...Clijsters was out with an injury...Marion Bartoli if she had been fitter would have taken the IW title...there are no impressive young gals (except for Miss Ego Caro) so stop with the juvenile threats ..they aren't there!

Re: Karolina: "The young generation is deep. Serena will be challenged."

Why is she talking about Serena as if Serena is dominating the tour?She's been out of the game since wimbledon Clijsters is the one they need to challenge right now.

My guess is she was asked about Serena, bright one.
