Why Wozniacki forces her opponents to hit errors?

Today's match for example, Aga usually has a positive winner/error ratio. And I've notice among all of Caroline's matches her opponents always have negative ratios. Yes, she is a great defensive player, but many girls can hit through her. What is it about her game that makes her opponents hit so many errors?

Have you not seen her play? It's been always the case since god knows when. She just keeps hitting the ball back forcing the other player to hit an extra shot. Til they miss.

She has no effective weapontry in her game to force the issue herself... so its usually just the other player either mentally collapsing or beating the snot out of her. The wins she get is usually when the other person self-destructs... which apparantly is often enough in this overly physical tour to get her to number 1...... for a whole year.

Re: Why Wozniacki forces her opponents to hit errors?

Uh, that's because her game style? Defensive, wearing her opponents out and pushing them to errors. The longer she keeps the ball in play, the more likely it is for her opponent to make a mistake, because they´re getting frustrated with her defensive capabilities and start risky shots.

She's been in the Top 10 for 128 weeks now, everybody has seen her play numerous times.

Yeah. It's a difficult playing-style to master but she's got it down. If she can add another power shot to her toolbox she may really blossom.

It's also her spin and weight of shot. And the depth of the shots. They're difficult to attack.

Which is why players should hit to Caro's forehand which has no depth or weight . Also come to the net when Caro tries to throw up a defensive moonball.

Correct tactics are all that's required to beat Caro, it's just that the tour is filled with Brainlessova's who don't try anything except trying to outhit her .

This. But lately her depth has been nonexistent. It used to be quite exceptional though.

She wont have to force Bepa to make errors when she plays her,Bepa seems to be making them voluntarily

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

This. When she was playing some of her best tennis of the year she seemed to be completely invincible to attacks, because she could get everything back deep and heavy enough for the rally to be (and I know this sounds ridiculous ) on her terms.

It's obviously not that easy, or she wouldn't win like 80% of the matches she plays. But I'll let all y'all armchair idiots keep theorizing.

That's not always true though, a lot of her forehands are deep, spinney, angled, etc.,

Of course it's her weaker wing and when it is short it's awful, completely attack-able.
