Why do people say Wozniacki is consistent?

One thing I've noticed is that everyone here seems to think the reason for Wozniacki's long spell at #1 is consistency... one of her fans claimed a few weeks ago that her consistency was "phenomenal", and even her haters while saying she's a bad player usually say something like "atleast she's consistent".

But she's actually extremely inconsistent. She's already lost before the quarterfinals at 8 tournaments this year... compared to Sharapova who's only lost before the same stage at 3 tournaments, Azarenka at five tournaments, Zvonareva at six tournaments, even the supposedly erratic Kvitova only lost before that stage at 5 WTA tournaments (6 including ITFs). And comparing Wozniacki's "consistency" to the other so-called non-#1s is an insult to them - Safina had a 52-week stretch from summer 2008 to just after Wimbledon '09 where she'd made SFs or better at all but 4 tournaments, while Jankovic in 2008 only lost before the QFs at Wimbledon and Zurich.

Literally the only thing keeping her at #1 is the fact she plays so many little Premier events like Brussels and Charleston, which offer a load of points but don't add anything to a world #1's career. The WTA really is going to have to move to a situation where rankings are based more on an average score, because this is just getting ridiculous now.

She used to be consistent And that consistency from the latter part of last year is what's keeping her at #1.

However, it's looking grim now if she keeps this up.

Honestly, she never really was. Like I said this year she's already lost before the QFs at 8 events, last year she lost before that stage at 9. She only ever looked consistent in comparison to other top players, but even 3-4 years ago, her results would've made her one of the most inconsistent players in the top 10.

This reflects what is happening to Carol than what OP post states.

Carol has always been consistent, and that has been reputation for some times.

Just because she is faltering at being consistent does not mean she has never been

Re: Why do people say Wozniacki is consistent?

I think most of the people who claim she's consistent mean it within a match. She IS consistent, as in she makes very, very few mistakes and her game is really monotonous.

Re: Why do people say Wozniacki is consistent?

What they meant was , that outside Slams , she almost always won when she was expected to. Last year she actually did rather well for most of the year, the only blips being a slightly slow start to the year and her injured clay season. This year she was also quite consistent until the clay season , which is when she started to fall apart.

I fail to see what was so incredibly shocking about people calling her consistent, she was

Useless topic that raises a dumb point, she was obviously very consistent before the early summer.

Right, and a dozen variations on this. Once you've won a Slam, you're deemed inconsistent the moment you don't blow every opponent off the court. But until that day, people won't expect you to win, so you're consistent whether you lose in R1 or make the semifinals.

Caro's game is more consistent than, say, Kvitova, because she doesn't take risks. She'll have bad days like today, but her playing style prevents her from having good days.... Thus, the gap is much smaller, and she's technically more consistent.

Christina McHale Zheng Jie Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson Petra Kvitova Dominika Cibulkova

Then why did she suffer early-round losses at 9 tournaments last year, and at 6 tournaments this year even before the US Open Series? Like I said, there are numerous players who've been much more consistent this year (Maria, Azarenka, Zvonareva, Kvitova).

Because she is. You don't win like 5-7 tourneys a year with some finals appearances sprinkled in there for good measure without being consistent.
