Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews



After Wozniacki terror concerns: We trust ITF
Efter Wozniackis terrorbekymring: Vi stoler på ITF - TV 2

Danish Tennis Federation understands Caroline Wozniacki concern for Fed Cup matches in Egypt, but trust in the International Tennis Federation's decision.

In April, the Danish Fed Cup team play international matches in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. The location of the matches have met nervousness from the team's biggest star Caroline Wozniacki.

The director of the Danish Tennis Federation, Sune Irgens Alenkær, is not without concerns about international football:

- I would aboslut have felt better if the game had been elsewhere, including Europe, says Sune Irgens Alenkær who still have confidence in the decision.

- Conversely, I must also say that we must trust that the International Tennis Federation have made their feasibility studies well enough, and that of course they can guarantee the safety of all athletes, including the Danish.

See a part of the interview with Caroline Wozniacki around the Fed Cup in Egypt in the clip at the top of the article.

Out of Fed Cup - the women's equivalent of the Davis Cup - played first to April. Therefore, the Danish Tennis Federation stay up to date on how things develop in the Egyptian capital.

- It is clear that we will be in continuous dialogue with the International Tennis Federation to assess the security situation, so we from Danish side can stand on the goal to send our athletes off.

But you are safe?

- We rely at least in the International Tennis Federation have made their process thoroughly. We are also sure that if the situation were to deteriorate in one way or another, they will also take the appropriate precautions, says Sune Irgens Alenkær to TV 2 SPORT.

Foreign Ministry writes on his website about traveling to Egypt:

"There is generally a high risk of terrorism throughout Egypt, including Cairo. There is also a risk kidnappings throughout Egypt."

The risk, the Danish journalist Eva Plesner, who is in Cairo, well recognize.

- There are problems with the security of Egypt. The stone is safely. 95 percent of terrorist attacks will take place on dn northern part of the Sinai Peninsula. But there are also attacked in Cairo, says Eva Plesner to TV 2 SPORT.

She says, however, that the attacks in Cairo is not directed at sporting events, but the police, consulates and domestic buildings.

- I can not think of a terrorist attack in Cairo in connection with a major sporting event. But recent years have actually been very few major sporting events in Cairo, and it is primarily associated with fear of terrorism. You dare not put major sporting events here, says Eva Plesner.

But even sporting events such as a tennis match has not been subjected to attacks, so understand Eva Plesner good Carolina Wozniacki's nervousness about security.

- Egypt is a place where there may be violent things. And one should not rule out that a risk of great anxiety about a tennis tournament.

- But typically happens tumult at football matches, when the fans smoking at loggerheads. But it is not political terror, yet quite serious when people are killed. And so there have been audience to football matches in over a year, says the Danish journalist for TV 2 SPORT.

Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews

CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: «It means a lot for me to carry national flag during the Olympics» - ST. PETERSBURG LADIES TROPHY

During the all access hour press conference seed number 3 Caroline Wozniacki answered questions from the press representatives.

Question: Hello Caroline, nice to see you here. You were not on the initial enter list. At which point have you decided to ask for a wild card?

Caroline Wozniacki: I always had this tournament among my preferations. I just need a lot more matches to play during this part of the year. That’s why I came here.

Q: You got a very successful start of the year, you were in the semifinals. And then you lost Australian Open in the first round. Can you make any comment?

CW: I felt very good during off-season. I tried my best but was unlucky in Australia. But it’s sport, you have to deal with it. It’s nice to be here and I hope I can play better.

Q: What’s your impression of St. Petersburg? And how far do you want to go in the draw?

CW: Obviously, I would like to win, that’s why I’m here. It’s my first time to St. Petersburg. It’s a beautiful city. I didn’t have much time to do sightseeing yet, but I will do it as soon as possible.

Q: We know you were struggling with injuries last season. How do you feel right now?

CW: Yes, last season I got injury after injury. But now I am injury free.

Q: In between the Australian Open you got a long break. How did you fill it in?

CW: It wasn’t that long. I took a couple of days off and started training and getting ready for the rest of the season.

Q: Yesterday Russia lost to the Nederlands. Talking about the idea of abiding players to play several matches for the country to be eligible for the Olympics, what is your attitude towards it?

CW: I think, we represent our countries during every match we play at different tournaments. Sometimes it’s difficult with the schedules, but these are the rules. We have to follow them in order to play at Olympics.

Q: Where do you get the energy you need to play, to travel in distant places, to change time zones?

CW: We travel the world since we were little kids. We got used to it. It’s part of our job. We have to be ready. Also good sleep and eating well help a lot.

Q: Speaking about the Olympics, it’s come to know you are going to carry national flag during the Olympics. How did it happen?

CW: It means a lot for me. I’m really excited about it. I got a call from the Danish Olympic Committee asking about it. I didn’t think twice, I answered «yes» straight away.

Q: Since you mentioned you want to win this tournament or to reach the finals, who do you think are the other favourites among WTA players. And what can you say specifically about Russian players such as Elena Vesnina and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova?

CW: I don’t know who are the favorites. It’s a lot of good players here, it’s going to be tough competition. As for Elena, she’s been a long time on tour, she has a great technique. Anastasia plays very well lately. So it’s good to see a lot of good Russian players here as it makes tennis more popular.

Q: How come you started studying Russian?

CW: Honestly, I never actually studied it. My dad had a lot of friends from Russia and we spent a lot of time with their families. They could’t speak Polish or English, so I learned the Russian language as a kid and then it was easy.

Q: Did you have the chance to practice on Sibur Arena courts? What can you say about the surface and lightning?

CW: I didn’t practiced on central court yet, but it’s a nice surface, it’s not too quick. I think many good matches will be played on this surface. I need to practice on central court as well soon.

Confirms what I think. We don't have to draw too fast conclusions upon a few strings of losses. The little things that make you win or lose are sometime so subtle. Especially in tennis, where the issue of matches are so often depending on a few shots winning you a game or a set. Wozniacki is still there and able to make a big run here and then. Just don't expect her to get back to the top like she did in 2010-2011. She was at the top of her rise back then. Things are different now, it's more up and down, but she's till there. I don't see a decline. Yes, she fell in the rankings, but there's a competition out there, Caroline has been left behind a bit but can still rise again. She may need to step back here and then to stay fresh in her mind and keep her competitive hunger. She doesn't show signs of being worn out to me.

- I have no doubt that she is still hungry.

- Every time we were on the tennis court, if there was something that did not work for her, we took ten balls extra. As soon as she is there she gives full. It is the difference between her and you and me. She does her job 110% even if she has a bad day and although there was little in the neck, she works still, says Mark Abildhauge to TV 2 SPORT.

He can not put a finger on one particular thing that right now is crucial why results are not forthcoming from Wozniacki. For the entire start to the season, she showed excellent physical shape.

- There is no doubt that she is up in the world top when it comes to the physical. When we train with her, we can see that she wear up the hitting partners. I actually spent more time on them than to treat her, says Mark Abildhauge.

- We know that she is physically, and then there are many who talk about the mental. It's the little things that make the difference, and when you are on top of the tennis throne, everyone will tear you down. They will give everything and if you do not have that little extra thing you can be beaten. Top 50-100 is much more closely than it has been previously.

- I will not say I'm concerned, but you may of course wonder that it goes as it goes. I think, however, that she will come back, because I've just been with her and there she was in the canon good shape, says Abildhauge.

Caroline Wozniacki has for years struggled with knee problems. These problems will Mark Abildhauge not give all the blame for the failing results. He explains, however, that tennis is an extremely tough sport, among other things knees.

- We made some measurements of her, where we saw how hard she was pressed when she served, landed and ran after the ball. It's crazy. I was surprised at how large the load it was. It wears every day for several hours, says Abildhauge and exemplifies how this load is equivalent to:
- If you stand up on a roof and jump down. The load is the same, she does it several times a day at the knees when she jumps forward in a serve. Therefore, it is tremendously hard and you must be in good physical shape, otherwise you can not live up there on top, he says.

Andy Murray, I don't think so, but I can certainly imagine other male players doing so. And I wouldn't see anything wrong with it.

WOZNIACKI RETURNS TO WINNING WAYS
Caroline Wozniacki returned to winning ways on Monday with a hard-fought win over the ever-improving Ana Konjuh at the Qatar Total Open.
Published February 22, 2016 12:14

DOHA, Qatar - Caroline Wozniacki survived a late wobble on Monday evening to edge past Ana Konjuh and into the second round of the Qatar Total Open.

Watch live action from Doha & Acapulco this week on WTA Live powered by TennisTV!

Success has proven hard to come by for Wozniacki this year, and getting over the finishing line against a hungry young opponent proved anything but straightforward.

Having weathered an early storm, the former World No.1, appeared to be cruising towards victory at 5-2 in the final set. However, liberated by the apparent hopelessness of the situation, Konjuh started to swing from the hip, clawing her way back level before eventually succumbing, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5.

By the time one of her thumping forehands finally found the tape, the Croatian had saved eight match points and put Wozniacki and her camp through the wringer.

"It's the first match and you just want to get going," Wozniacki said in her on-court interview. "I wasn't hitting it well, and she was, but then I was 5-2 up in the third set, but thought we'd give the crowd a little bit more excitement!

"Hopefully the next match is going to be better and I'll get a better start."

In the preceding match, Roberta Vinci celebrated her first day as a member of the Top 10 with a near-faultless 6-2, 6-1 victory over Lesia Tsurenko. Also advancing was her fellow Italian, Sara Errani, a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 winner over Tsvetana Pironkova.

Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews

Press Conference Caroline Wozniacki ,Qatar Total Open-2016 February 22 | Herald Sport

Quote:
Q. Tough match today. How important was tonight?s win in terms of the confidence, especially after a couple of early exits in the last two tournaments?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, it?s nice to get through. It wasn?t really pretty out there, but a win is a win. And being able to win even if you don?t play or best is better than to lose when you play great. So I?m going to take it.

Q. How much of that was the down to the slow start? She obviously started much better than you.
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Yeah, she started off much better. I started off really poorly. Just really needed to get myself going.

Then I started playing much better in the second set and had a few games there where I felt like my old self. Then it kind of went a bit up and down after that.

So definitely going to try to get a better start tomorrow.

Q. What were you thinking when you were serving for the match and she broke you?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: I was just like here we go again. Let?s just keep the head cool.

Q. You play Daria next. How much do you know about her game?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: I?ve practiced with her a couple of times, but I?ve never played against her in a match.

Yeah, she?s a fighter. She likes to come with a lot of different shots out there and she?s going to have you play that extra point.

Q. In the final set, you were leading quite a bit. Then towards the end, you started losing rhythm. Was it because of the wind or was the court behaving differently as some players have said or was it something else?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: I think it was windy in the beginning of the day, or like midday today. But then it went down and it was kind of pretty okay. It was manageable.

But I don?t think anything changes with the wind or the court in like two minutes. It was more me and her more than anything else.

Q. If the world ends tomorrow, what tennis match would you chose, to play or to see?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: If I had to choose a match.

Q. To play or to see a tennis match?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: To play.

Q. Who?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Who?

Q. Yeah.
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: What game I would like to play?

Q. Yeah.
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: The US Open finals.

Q. Against?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Someone I beat. So if I win, I don?t care who I play against. Doesn?t matter.

Q. And the big question Jurgen Klopp, good? Bad?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, I think he?s good for the team. I think it?s going to come. I think next season is going to be good. I think we need a couple more players to our team.

I think what I?ve seen is that the team spirit at least is up and they feel that they really want to play. You can see they?re excited to play, all the guys out there.

I?m hoping in the new season, they get a bit of time. Klopp gets to, you know, feel even more a part of the who thing. I think next year is going to be a good year.

Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews

Efter ny Wozniacki-nedtur: Det gør ondt at se hende ? Ekstra Bladet

Tine Scheuer and Michael Mortensen laments Wozniackis bad game and attitude in a time when she should take advantage of the tennis top is either absent or underperforming
- It hurt a bit to see Caroline, because she does not play particularly well this year. I miss seeing her play a great tennis match. And it makes very painful right now, where the other top players do not perform. It should be a fine start for her to return to the Top 10th

Tennis Commentator Tine Scheuer annoyed Caroline Wozniacki's poor start to the season that sent Dane completely out of the Top 20. Because there are no signs of recovery, she says.

- Caroline did not play it right now. She looks lean, but she does not come right out to the balls. It must sit in her head, for she is going a step too late going. She either comes a little too close to or a little too far from the balls and hit them therefore skewed.

- She's not afraid to lose but afraid to win, I think. She plays through to many chances but do not put the last ball.
Caroline had this week desperately need victories in Doha, she says, but the third round was the final stop in a tresætter against Elena Vesnina, as she used to knock at will.

- She is not at the maximum of its potential right now. I remember what it was like not being able to get it out. It is very frustrating.

- But she'll have to hang on and win the matches, which she did not play well. For then there will be a match tomorrow, and it may be the one who redeems it all.
Toptræneren Michael Mortensen visited Caroline Wozniacki in Florida during the start to the new season and trained later some days with her in Denmark. At that time he was very encouraged:

- She was on! It was important to her.

- But when I see her play matches now, the game is too predictable and one-dimensional.

- I miss a little risk-taking. She should not just climb but I miss some more layers in her game and some tempo changes. She plays a little too flat, and it's all stuff for most of her opponents to get the ball served at hip level, he said.
- And I miss something attitude and charisma, something wildness and spontaneity. A signal that this is so important to her.

- But the worst thing is that the others have lost respect. They clearly stated that they believe that they can beat her, and they continue to fight to the end.

- It is important that she will soon have recreated the respect of obtaining a result that gives respect. By beat a Top 10 player. It should preferably be in the US in the coming period, he says, referring to the big tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.

Next week the player Caroline Wozniacki, however, first held in Monterey, Mexico.
