Cool Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/news;...=ap-charleston

“I feel confident and I know I can win a (Grand) Slam” tournament, Wozniacki said.

Vesnina had beaten four seeded opponents to reach the title game. But she sounded like all of Wozniacki’s opponents this week as she marveled at the Dane’s play. Wozniacki, Vesnina says, balances pace and brains to come out on top.

“It’s not like she was like Serena , you know, powerful play,” Vesnina said.

“Caroline, she’s using pace. She’s using the whole court and she’s playing smart tennis.”

The kind that earns someone their first Grand Slam?

Wozniacki’s not counting on anything yet.

“It’s all about getting everything together,” she said. “The draw has to fit, I have to play well for two weeks, things like that all have to work together.”

Re: Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

I think she can too. We know who is her competition at the moment. But I'd really like to see what Franny can do at RG; there may be too much pressure on her. Then I also see Sveta being able to do something (I hope something good). Stosur, I don't know when she is going to get her game back. There could be a surprise winner. On the men's side, RG used to be known for surprising champions, new champions. No longer, though.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

Is Vesnina implying that all there is to Serena is power?

Re: Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

In other totally unrelated news, just before the press conference, Caro heard of Kim's unfortunate accident while doing the electric slide.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced

Re: Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

"She showed that in capturing her third tournament of the season. She lost only one set in her five matches, in the quarterfinals to Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, and took out former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic in straight sets to reach the finals here for the second time in five years."

Eh?

Re: Caro After Charletson: I Can Win A Grand Slam

of course she CAN. Will she? probably at some point.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Vesnina calling Serena a brainless ballbasher?
