Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 2
I have kind of a sad report about Caroline. I like her very much and watched her match on Wednesday. Yesterday, I saw her practicing. She sat down and her coach was telling her something and demonstrating what he meant and talking to her a lot. In the meantime, her mother and father were picking up balls around the court. Then they sat down one on each side of Caroline. The coach evidently was giving a synopsis of what he had told Caroline. Then the father very animatedly responded to them. The coach replied. This went on and on, and Caroline's head dropped and she was looking down at the court like I've seen teenagers and children do when they just want something to be over but have no power over it. And finally the coach was talking less and less and scuffing the court with his shoe as the father talked. Then he asked Caroline if she was ready to play. She stood up quickly and they began hitting. She seemed happier. But, her father then started calling out instructions to her loudly. It always began with her name "Caroline" "Caroline" Yelling at her until I just wanted to yell "shut up" back at him. Finally I had to walk away. I hope that was just an exception and not what usually goes on.
