Me too, but it really wouldn't be fair against Peer. I think that if someone commits to play doubles, they have to do their best, even though it means they're going to be tired as hell for their singles match. If they know their body can't handle playing that many matches, they shouldn't have chosen to play doubles in the first place.

Caro-Dokic is going to be very interesting. Fortunately Eurosport Player has pretty much all matches from the main courts on demand, so I'll get to re-live it even if I miss it. I really think those of you guys who can watch it (I'm not sure if it's only for Europe?) should buy it, just during the AO.

Very likely it will be a night match on Rod Laver arena. Not so hot any more, but Caro will have to deal with a large crowd rooting against her. Hope it's OK with her...

I don't recall the other slams putting as many non-contenders in a prime time/evening match as the Australian Open has so far, I mean not even 1 night match among Venus, Serena, or Jankovic.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 2

They put mostly their own players on prime time and they don't have anyone really good at the moment. Dokic might as well be the last one around...

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 2

I'm almost certain Caro V Dokic will be the friday night match

The Dokic - Chaky match is the leading sports story on all the news and sports channels in Australia this morning, I expect organisers to cash in on the publicity and put the match in prime time

But it will be hard to fly from Thailand to USA the next week...But she's not in the Dubai List.

Putting your own interests before Caro's are we?

Madison Brengle: "I'd rather chew on a pinecone than play this match (against Wozniacki)."
Nicole Melichar: "Do you want me to go find you one?"

dokic will be tough but Caro should be able to pull through.

I think Chaky is a better matchup for Caro than Dokic. Also, I'm not sure she will handle a primetime match that well. She lost to Vesnina in a night match. Plus a match in the day probably won't have as much of a crowd for Dokic to feed off of.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 2

Probably the biggest match of the tournament so far and it'll almost certainly be a night match at RL Arena. Dokic will be tough but she's not up to the same level of consistency as Caro

Who needs consistency when you're blasting a sufficient # of winners past your opponent?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 2

Dokic was mentally very shaky against Anna C. Hopefully Caro will not offer 50 UE and 16 DF to help her. As for the night match - got to learn sooner or later. Surely not the last time she will play a local favorite on the central court...

Caro/Peer lost the 1st set 6-2 to Kudryavtseva/Makarova. 2-2 in the 2nd set.
