Wozniacki fans definitely don't strike me as a happy bunch. Deranged and hypersensitive is more like it.

2017 Results:
Tennis Tipping
Singles: W - Kuala Lumpur, Mallorca SF - Eastbourne, Moscow, Biel, Quebec City QF - Rome || Doubles (w/ Randy): F - Kuala Lumpur SF - Cincinnati, Toronto, Eastbourne, Stuttgart QF - Miami
FITD (CHR #1): W - Monterrey, Nottingham, Prague, Seoul, Strasbourg
Suicide: W - Moscow, Tokyo (Int.)

Very true. If it was a real match, especialy an important one, it would not be a 3 setter but Kvitova spanking Wozniacki badly like in their Wimbledon encounter and their WTA Championships encounter.

Really? I thought they were both trying really hard actually. But, Petra is always going to beat Wozniacki indoors, even on clay IMO. Wozniacki is a slight favorite if they play on outdoor hardcourts however.

You KNOW that if Caro had won, it would have been touted as a brilliant coup, beating "Kvitty on her best surface." Even as it is, one of them has claimed that "Caro would have won if the match had been played outside."

Woz showed some of the nice shots that got her to the USO final once upon a time. Kvitty fans give her all the credit for that, and it was certainly nice to see her play more aggressively. It would be nice to see some recognition that this was, in fact, a legitimate victory for Petra, that Woz did not tank, that Petra did not get lucky, and that the Hopman Cup singles matches are not just a "useless exho." No Petra fan that I've ever seen uses silly arguments to minimize that legitimacy of Wozniacki's wins over her in the past.
Caro wanted to win or play well badly in that match (whether it counted officially or not). That was clear to see.

I don't have the exact quote. But I'm sure they do (da Caro Brigade), where Caro stated 'she was very pleased with her progress, it was her best match, either could won (gulp) & how she played so much better than her first to matches'.

But they're not going to tell you this (as the reason she's in Sydney is cause her and team mate were losers & didn't make the finals).

If Caro was 2 hours later to Perth, US-Denmark would have been Malou-Mattek, Fish-Nielson.
But she got there in time, they played the mens match 1st, and Caroline got 3 matches in.

She's happy she played better as the week went on, and she expects to keep improving. Full interview in her forum.

Her WTA year starts next week. I think week 65 at World #1

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

Now followed up with your most idiotic post.

I knew it couldn't last for long.

I'd rather be a one time Slam winner, than a none (and done) time slam winner!!

You're a one-time slam winner?

Which one did you win? If it's RG it doesn't count, man.

You pretty much have to have a sense of humour if you're a Wozniacki fan.
