I think she takes the ball early, hits it flat but I'm not certain.

A strange statistic from her 1st 2 main draw matches in this tournament is that she won 66% and 81% of respectively on her 2nd serve. Stosur led the Wta last year with an average winning % of 52% on her 2nd serve.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

I'm no expert on Morita but this is what I know: The most unconventional thing about her is probably her two-handed FH. Her serve is somewhat weak which Caro must take advantage of. She's very quick on her feet and mentally tough. She mostly stays at the baseline, hitting hard and flat (not as hard and flat as Li Na, though). But she's not afraid to come to the net if need be. She's less consistent than Caro, making a fair deal of UEs.
For those with ESP; there's 5 matches with her in the archive.

Edit: Wickmayer saves 4 mps and beats Li Na in 3 sets! How much you wanna bet GM will explode with "Wozniacki being the luckiest girl in the world" because her supposedly toughest opponents lose early!?
Edit2: What a surprise, NOT! Princess Caro's Road Back to #1 Just Got Alot Easier

Paul Annacone on Wozniacki: "Her biggest skill is to make you over play."

Thanks for info.

Hah, I just read about Wickmayer v Li, Who cares about GM, you have to accept the rough with the smooth in Sport as in Life.

Agree. She was also genuinely very worried for Chaky and came straight over when she fainted. Some things are more important than tennis like kindness and compassion which Caro showed. Someone in GM called her a vulture for this. Probably someone who next says "I don't hate her - it's just her game I don't like".

Anyway GL against Morita. Caro needs to raise her game.

Though I don't condone the barbarity of Dr.Mengele,sometimes I think that sterilization isn't such a bad plan for people who demonstrate vastly inferior DNA with their mental ineptitude....It's miraculous that the folks who see Caro most often on tour,and actually KNOW her,don't seem to notice these alleged character flaws

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

They played doubles in juniors but not on the senior level.

So what's Aga do differently againt Bartoli than Caro does? She's now won all 6 matches she's played against Bartoli dropping only the 1st set they played while Caro's lost her last 2 matches against Bartoli.

I don't think it's anything particular with Marion that Caro has lost her last 2 matches and Aga always wins. Or that we can draw any big conclusions from this. The last time at Cinci she didn't play well in that match but in fairness she'd just flown out to the States from Denmark. It was after then that Caro really went on a tear. I don't see Caro losing to Marion in the form she upped herself into last year. In the form she is in now - she's managing to get wins. But really the tour is so deep now that their's plenty of players - not just Marion - that could beat her. She'll make it difficult to be beaten. She ought to beat players like Marion but it's no foregone conclusion.

I've never actually seen Aga against Marion so can't answer your question. But I think what does Caro needs to do. Just all round improving. Cut down on hitting so many short balls back; cut down on UEs - something which is always of concern when Caro does it - so that if it gets into a long rally that she is the favourite to win the point; her serve - against Na at AO this let her down badly; work on trying to be more aggressive without seriously jeopardising her UE count. I do enjoy her BHDTL.

and Caro fans... Futher to similarities, 'we' bring the abuse to ourselves and its our own fault! According to GM logic. Same logic and explanation was very popular duirng Adolfs regime.
