They can't withdrew from doubles if they both are fit and just needs the rest...Caro said she just uses the doubles as training before Singles.

It would have been fun to see the match against the WS, but I am not sad that Caroline got a forced day of rest before Pennetta.

Its funny it wasn't SW who withdrew, she had the doctor on court who checked her out and gave her pills in the middle of her match against Pavlyuchenkova.

Maybe DH and SW tossed a coin and HD lost.


Of course Team Wozniacki would never have withdrawn.

Unlike Caro, Rezai's earned it.

And count me in as another who's glad she's out of doubles. Girl needs to focus on becoming 3-0 against Pennetta.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

BTW, what is with all the Caro hate around these forums?

Is it something personal that she did? She seems like a perfectly fine and personable young lady. She's not the most exciting player by any means, but I can't imagine her play would actually inspire hatred....can it?

As I remember it. It started out with experts opinions about Caro and her potential future as a tennis player. At that stage it was not personal, just popular to have an expert opinion about how mediocre her game was and so she would basicly never ever anything...bla. bla. bla. But it turned out so, that all these experts, were wrong. At that stage it became more personal. I don't realy understand it, but I remember it starting out something like that.

It's the fact that Caro's 'boring' game wins matches and tournaments, gets her a top ranking and sometimes even defeats their own favorite player's more 'interesting' game. If only Caro was ranked 50 and never had any noticeable wins it would reduce the hating by 90%.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Besides the already mentioned factors I also think that envy is causing a lot of the hate. Caro's rise to staredom has been incredibly quick: At the beginning of 2008 she was still only ranked like #60 or so! And her rise from # 10 in the world to # 2 took only 10 months, which is quite rare (although done slightly quicker by Sharapova and Ivanovic, who were 28 and 14 days quicker respectively).

Usually the WTA players progress much more slowly as the come nearer to the top 10. Even players like Venus, Serena, and Kuznetsova needed more than three years to reach the #2 spot in the rankings from the time when they cracked the top 10! And Dementieva only reached her career high ranking (#3) in 2009 - 8 years after she cracked the top 10 in 2001. Mauresmo needed 5 years to progress from #10 to #2, while Safina and Henin needed just over 2 years.

The usual 'slow' progression means that the players have a lot of time to establish themselves in the top of tennis. They gradually work their way to the top by winning bigger and bigger tournaments and producing consistently good results (and thus 'deserving' their place in the top).

Caro, on the other hand, came like out of nowhere! "where did she come from", is what many tennis fans (who have not followed her career closely) seem to think. "What did she do to get there and does she even deserve it?"

I guess the 'Caro haters' only wish, that their faves would have the same success as Caro! Furthermore: Caro is blonde, young, good looking, sweet, friendly, well liked, rich, succesful, gets a lot of media exposure and fine sponsor deals, which are all perfectly legitimate reasons to cause envy and hate !

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Day 8 preview; http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/n...256076_2061720

[14] Flavia Pennetta (ITA #15) vs. [3] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN #3)
H2H: Wozniacki leads 2-0
2010 W-L record (All surfaces/clay): Pennetta (26-10/12-3)… Wozniacki (26-10/14-5)

Wozniacki has now reached the fourth round or better at the last four Grand Slam tournaments, and indeed is through to this stage at Roland Garros for the first time. So far this week the 19-year-old's problematic ankle has held up well enough, but she certainly won't want it preying on her mind as she strives for her 200th career win against a classy opponent. After winning the title at Marbella in April Pennetta's Roland Garros preparations went flat (at least in singles) but she remains one of the most accomplished clay courters around, her seven titles on the surface placing her fourth amongst active players. Curiously, this is just the second time the 28-year-old has done this well here, but with the pressure on her teenaged rival she might just fancy her chances of a breakthrough.

Dammit Caro why can't you just stay in your place?!

But seriously tennis has never been a sport that always rewards the player with the most interesting game. It's a sport that rewards the player who actually wins.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

this match was epic, probably Flavia deserved to take this more, but Caro was more consistent mentally and phisically

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
