Re: Caroline Wozniacki - Video Thread

Could someone make a small video of the point at 1-3 30-30 first set? This may be the best point Caro has ever played. Vera plays remarkable defense but Caro manages to keep up the pressure shot after shot until Vera finally gives in. I find the way Caro manages to keep a long point (35 stroke rally) under control with one well-placed shot after the other much more impressive than going for an early 1-shot winner you miss every second time.
I love the reaction of the audience, too; the way they can't help clapping and ooh-ing during the point and the older woman you see smiling delightedly after the point's won. This is tennis at its very best!

Thanks for posting that. Even though I don't speak Danish it's interesting to see stuff like that. She seemed extremely happy.

She was asked what she thought the result of tonight's football match between Denmark and Cyprus would be. She said she hoped for 2-0. And it turned out that was how the match ended.

Caro was also later interviewed by TV2 at the national football stadium in the half-time break of the football match.

I'm not the only one who liked that point!
There's a first set highlights video on Youtube which starts exactly at 1-3 30-30 which I see as the turning point of the set. Had Caro lost this hard fought rally she would have been down BP for a double break and could easily have lost the set. Now she won the point and Vera was simply outplayed the rest of the set.
It reminds me of John McEnroe commentating in the movie Wimbledon: "One decisive point that can make or break your confidence and completely determine the outcome of a match." Even though Vera made a good comeback in second set Caro's body language was never negative. I think she knew in her heart all the way she would win the match if only she played her best.

After watching that point I don't understand how anyone can claim that Caroline is just lucky and benefiting from a depleted field. Sure, she does not win every point but she works extremely hard and gives her all on every point.

Oddly, there were stretches where Vera was winning most of the longer points and Caroline was winning the shorter points. It was great to see her be more aggressive and win some points after three shots or less. I hope she watches some of those shorter points and tries to do that more often. I like watching her win long rallies but sometimes it's got to tire her out a little bit.

Of the set and the game, and before Pitor came on court.

About the bolded part: you and me both.
Generally speaking, I think defensive skills are underappreciated. Part of the problem is that in tennis it's hard to convey a player's performance on defense with statistics, unlike in some other sports.
