Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

From WTA site about Bartoli:

"I'm sure she played a great match against Shahar," Wozniacki said. "I didn't see the match so it's difficult for me to say, but to be the No.1 player in the world you need to play like that every match. That's why there's only one."


GM gonna be mad.

Eurosport seems to be replaying all the QFs from 00:45 tonight!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

When she was down 0-2 at the beginning, and didn't look very well or energetic, I thought oh shit why did she even play here.

But then she showed me why, 12 games in a row, AND THOSE STATS, and it was not like it was a walk over, Pennetta had nearly as many winners as Caroline.

Caroline just played so well, never gave up on a game, those 2 12- 13 mins games were superb, hit some pretty decent forhand winners etc etc

It must be official now, her game is changing. Still keeps the solid defence, chooses when she will go for the winners but is defenitly more agressive now.

I hope she puts up a just as good showing against Bartoli tommorrow.

She is such a big fan of Liverpool and she always gets signed shirts, what really went on in that dressing room???

I agree, to a point. I think it is great to see Caroline playing aggressively but I hope that she can play like that on the bigger stages facing better opponents. It's easy to play aggressively in Doha against a player like Pennetta, it may not be so easy in a slam situation against one of her nemesis' (Na Li, Clijsters, an on fire Kvitova). Let's see how the "new" Caroline does tomorrow against Bartoli, a player who is also currently playing at a high level.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

Odd stat from the match against Flavia: Caro won 0/8 points on her 2nd sets. For a straight sets victory like Caro had that seems really weird.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

I think today's match will be about Caro preventing Bartoli from stepping into the court and fire off her two-handed ws. If Caro plays like yesterday and hits ws left and right herself that would of course be super. But if her play is more 'normal' today it'll be about depth. Deep serves, deep ROSs, deep groundstrokes. And if Caro could maintain a high 1st serve percentage again that would be great because MB is very good at punishing short 2nd serves.
If Caro plays her best tennis she'll beat the inconsistent Frenchie. And since her two BFFs, Aga and Vika, pretty much own Bartoli (6-0 both) it'd be odd if Caro can't beat her as well.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

I thought this was interesting to know as a fan, thats why its not in the articles and interviews section. So next time GM is trolling something from the crazy Polish media, you know better.

.....................

While many Danes have the impression that Caroline Wozniacki not have time for much other than training, the reality is quite different. This reveals her father and coach, Piotr Wozniacki.

"Mentally it's important that she have her recesses with her friends. Sometimes she invites them to tournaments, and last week Malou Ejdesgaard came to visit in Dubai. It is important to keep a good contact,"says Piotr Wozniacki to Ekstra Bladet, and reveals that the rules have been a little looser with time.

"Today she always lives for herself. Some nights we are out together, other times she goes alone. And it may well be past midnight if it is cozy. That should she be allowed. She is young and wants to get away from the hotel, he continues.

She is an adult
The whole father-daughter relationship is build on trust, and it works according to Piotr Wozniacki really well.

"It's always a balance, but we know each other so well. Now Caroline is an adult and has her own life. When she has time off from matches and training, she has time for herself, says Piotr.

http://sporten.tv2.dk/tennis/article...hverdagen.html

.................

That should she be allowed. So she is not completely on her own after all? lol I think I was 14 when my parents stopped telling me when to be in bed, how about you guys? lol

Being a sports star is different of course. Wish I had a dad who would support me rather than watch sports all the time after his 60+ hours a week in his store. Maybe I could have been Frederik Fetterlein lol

Eurosport 2 is replaying the Woz-Pennetta match now if anyone's interested. They are still in THAT 4th game in the first set.

You made some good points, but I think you left out one very important factor. Watching Bartoli--do you think she's in the best shape possible ? From watching the match she stopped moving her feet early in the second set. Bartoli needs to get herself in much better shape before she can challenge the top players.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

I think the biggest difference for Caroline is that she is really capitalising on her break chances. Obviously that can make things much easier.
