The Woz: US Open or Bust

I think Wozniacki is in a lot more trouble than people realize. Her brand has been getting pummelled all through 2011 and she is in now danger of not being taken seriously. If you want to be a star, you have to play like a star when the world is watching. The Woz needs to reach the final of the USO to salvage any credibility. Its obvious that her confidence has been destroyed, and her game just looks ordinary Top 20, not #1.

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

Now Caro's part of the season arrives. Realistically speaking with her game, U.S. open and Oz open are the only majors where she's a REAL contender. Kvitova struck first...gonna be interesting how Caroline responds.

Always bet on black!

I bet your mother needed to slap you across the breakfast table a few times when you were a kid.

The only other thread I saw was some moron stating that the Woz is the obvious USO winner, a not very useful thread title in my opinion.

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

worst case if she loses to a "rival" and keeps the #1 ranking.

if she loses early, probably she'll lose the #1 spot, which wouldn't be that bad for her. A wake up call.

Can't she lose the #1 ranking before the USO? This is worse than I thought.

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

She has more of a shot at the Australian Open than she does at the US Open imo.

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

No matter what happens, after the USO she's going to be fighting for YE #1 for the 2nd straight year.

It can never be: win the USO or bust, because she's still early in her career.
Of course she wants to win that. So does Serena, Kim, Maria.. everybody with a chance wants to win it.

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

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

I think she has a good chance at the US this year. She always looks comfortable on hard courts. I would think she would at least get to the Quarters.

Re: The Woz: US Open or Bust

She sure as hell won't win it, but she rarely sucks there (it seems tougher for her to get overpowered at the USO for some reason), and the court seems to help her shots somewhat.

She'll probably lose in the QF or something.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.
