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.
