I seriously don't see your issue.... Everybody knows that Neanderthals worshipped the Sun, so its natural they blame Sunshine for their favourites dismal displays.

My favorite post yesterday was a Chinese Li Na fan that posted re Wickmayer "break a leg" not realising its term of encouragement. She duly obliged.

Well - I was pretty confused by Caro's serving today. But there's a couple of great posts by Burisleif and CWF in the Live Scoring Thread at the end of the match explaining it all. There's no way though that Caro's serves today were anywhere near the Sam kickserve class. And she'll get murdered if she tries that with most other players.

You really can't say much about her win today. She was under absolutely no pressure whatsoever and Morita had nothing to hurt Caro.

There was also a presentation at the end in which Caro gave the trophy. She was also politely getting the recipient to where he should be standing when they all took 2 step forward and he stayed back. I missed who it was to or what it was for though.

Agreed. Sam's kickserves have much more, ahem, kick to them.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

I've just rewatched the last Caro-Shahar match from Beijing. They're about equally dangerous when it comes to attacking but SP doesn't have Caro's stability and makes more mistakes. If Caro plays near her best with good depth on her groundstrokes and prevents SP from coming forward much she should win the match. But the circumstances certainly aren't ideal; switching to a different court with a slightly different surface which her opponent is familiar with and Caro isn't. No Hawkeye. Playing 5 hours earlier than Caro's previous matches so the sun suddenly becomes a factor, especially on serve. And considering it's still early in the season I only see Caro as a small favorite.

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

Really,really love the idea of Caro's winning more free points with her serve...just PLEASE don't ever adopt a service motion,Caro,that'll throw your shoulder out of whack

Its a Bieber movie .. I've offered in GM to exchange tickets for the Klitova Bandwaggon Bus to a Bieber concert, but surprisingly I haven't had any takes so far I am afraid that first stop crash Vs Yumichan didn't help

As for todays match, welcome back to the REAL #1 (@terj yes I know Kim is currently the better player, but its too fun an opportunity to pass to post 'real' #1 in GM. You'll understand, I'm sure )

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4

Despite the wind and different surface Caroline did it. Nice one.
But oh dear, why couldn't she finish it of when serving for the match 1st time!!!! it shortened my life by a week at least.

One thing I have kind of noticed before, and very much so in the last 2 matches, is that when Caroline is really on top in a match and her opponent plays badly in a period, then when her opponent plays well again its like Caroline cannot change immediately back to a more aggressive game.

This should be something they should work on.

Missed the match well done Caro... Anyone fancy writing a brief summery of play and how Caro's nerves were?
