Is Wozniacki green with envy of Petra's 2011 success?

12 months ago, the barking lefty was merely another journeywoman in the making. Now, she has a far superior resume than Karolina.

What does Princess feel right now that a fellow "youngster" has already exceeded her?

If you cant be happy being World #1 for 51 weeks in a calendar year, and winning back to back YE #1's, then you'll never be happy.
Caroline has 4 more opportunities to win a major in 2012.
Then she'll be 22 and have 4 more in 2013
Then she'll be 23 and have 4 more in 2014
On and on

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

And then she'll be 27 and still happy with 7 YE's in a row with no major.

I think Caro'd be more jealous if this was Aga or Vika that had surpassed her.

Always bet on black!

Yeah but if her bitch Babyfat wins a major before her, I think she will hang herself.

Letīs say she is very aware of what happens around her. Six months ago, she was #1 without a Slam, but she must have felt pretty confident that she was the top dog of the young generation, so she was basically taking it on the chin, racking up the weeks at #1, and sitting out Serena, Clijsters, Venus, Na Li, Schiavone, Stosur, Zvonareva, Jankovic and company. Eventually the Slams would pile up and the weeks @ #1 would be validated.

Then it started to happen. Kvitova won Wimbledon and YEC. Azarenka won Miami again, pushed Kvitova all the day on Petraīs best surfaces, while making the SF of Wimbledon and the YEC final. Only Serena stopped her from making a deeper run at the USO. Radwanska changed her coach, and suddenly started to win bigger events and raised her level of tennis. Petkovic reached three Slam QFs, and showed she can hang with basically every player in the world game-wise. Lisicki came back out of nowhere, and won three tournaments in three months. Then there is always the threat that Pavlyuchenkova comes out of a winter break in shape and starts to tap into her potential. Goerges basically owned her on clay, Sharapova started to beat her.

So itīs not just Kvitova. Suddenly there are 6-8 youngish players that can and have beaten her, that have started to realize their potential in 2011, while it was a year of standstill at best for Wozniacki.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Indeed...Caroline hasn't make progress this year and that should be the worrying thing. Petra's already left her in the dust and doesn't look like she's looking back. Vika is getting there..whereas Caro used to at least be already there, she no longer is there.

People mentioning Pavlu..well, if girl ever decides to work on her fitness then ALL hope is gonna be gone for Caro.

Always bet on black!

This Karolina hating obsession is really getting out of control! I guess, she is kinda concerned and disappointed but hardly is she in such a drama queen mood as its portrayed around here And the fact that Schiavone won a fucking Slam at 30 is proof enough that everything is possible

Anyways, I felt sorry for Caro, having to pretend like she was injured whilst being thrashed by Goatra at the YEC. She does deserve credit though, for lasting longer than Jankovic or Safina at the top whilst under huge criticism and pressure to win a grand slam. But unlike them, she's still young and has plenty more years left to improve and win a GS.

Of course she is. But it's good for her to have that attitude.

maybe Caro will be motivated to work harder during the off season...Kvitova is a very talented player and is more talented than pova,Caro ,Azarenka or Stosur.
Kvitova has done what JJ,Dementieva or Safina failed to do win a slam and YEC...ALL IN ONE YEAR.

Definitely. Look at the ultra-competitive, borderline evil looks she was giving Petra in their YEC match. She was determined not to make an ass of herself.
