Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 4
What a marvellous start of the season for Caro - in spite of everything (devastating losses to Cibulkova and Na Li, new racket, and the so-called pressure of being #1)! She's rarely in good form in January and February but her SF at AO was by far her best January result ever. And now her SF in Dubai is her best February result ever (her previous best February result was a Final in Memphis but a SF in Dubai must be better - both regarding ranking and prize money). Yet, Caro's game doesn't seem on par with her 2010 fall season. It's really weird, but I'm not complaining.
She could win this tournament, but I don't think she will. She doesn't seem as consitently convincing as when she won those 5 tournaments in a span of just two months in the autumn of 2010. But it's Caro, and anything can happen. She has won the past two Premier 5's, and her current winning streak at P5's is 13-0!
One last comment: I only saw Caro's match against Chakvetadze last night, and I thought Anna's collapse was quite scary. And I must admit that I'd prefer Anna to stay healthy over Caro winning the match - if those were the only options (which they're not!). But of course, Caro might still have won the match if Anna was healthy; we'll never know. We certainly can't blame Caro for the outcome. But I hope Anna is well soon.
