Caroline is number 1 BUT the media and casual tennis fans do not respect her.

I know Caroline Wozniacki fans are thrilled she finished the year at number one for the second year in a row. ON this message board Caroline fans will say she is famous maybe in Poland and Denmark but not in the United States. Most casual tennis fans don't know who Wozniacki is because she has never won a slam. However, if you read articles on the internet the media and tennis experts DO NOT respect Caroline. Caroline is a nice girl, with a good personality but she has not proven she is a champion. Her fans can list all the tier I titles she won but the slam matter the most.

Caroline is consistent at the regular WTA events BUT she's proven this year again NO SLAM FINAL appearances in two years since 2009 US OPEN. Caroline is number one because no one else has gotten the maturity to step up to the plate, have the mental toughness and win SLAMS.

Here are the number one player's results in grand slams this year.

Australian Open-semifinalist had a match point against Li Na but still lost.

French Open- Third round pathetic loss.

Wimbledon- fourth round loss.

US OPEN- Serena Williams destroyed Wozniacki in straight sets.

I just found out that water is...wet. Shocked me.

No, seriously, the media continues to overpraise her game because they like her as a sportsperson.

Not really, if you read the Guardian, NY Times, LA Times, Independent, and other publications the media is also very critical of Caroline. She's a nice person but she LACKS the mental toughness to become a champion. She just just doesn't have the weapons to dominate the WTA Tour. No slam final appearances in two years says a LOT about Caroline's inability to win a slam.

Wozniacki is trying to as happen as hard as Gretchen Weiners is trying to make fetch happens.

Re: Caroline is number 1 BUT the media and casual tennis fans do not respect her.

I'm not fan of Caro but I'm not basically hater of anybody on tour. Each player have different style of play, different personality, different incourt and outcourt behavior, different successand & based on this players have their fans. I'm not quite sure why those threads are so many offensive to Caro. Is that girl mistake that she earned so many points that she is n#1? Is that girl goal not to win any slam to upset everybody? What is your advice to her? If you can't win slam please stop rather winning other tournaments or playing tennis?

Woz was good in the Spring and earned the points to set her still onto No. 1. Who cares about who the media means...

Re: Caroline is number 1 BUT the media and casual tennis fans do not respect her.

To be number one you've GOT to win slams! If you don't win slams then you are NOT number one. Yes, Caroline plays in a million events to get the points. But can anyone honestly say this woman is the best player on the WTA yet she loses in the third round of the French and fourth round of Wimbledon? Wozniacki's results in the slams are very poor. In my mind she's probably a number 4 to number 10 player. Caroline is top 10 but definitely not as talent as some of her peers.
