Oh yes , of course , this is just my own psychosis it seems! I'm just comparing it to last year where after the Australian Open she was never out of the top 3 if I recall correctly. Perhaps I should compare it to 2010 where she didn't make the top 8 until Indian Wells and was still first to qualify

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

In the worst-case scenario,I'd still expect Caroline to win one of her MM allotments...and then she should have an easy time of it in closing the year with a victory in Sofia

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

^MM's? She can only play two of those a year... As for Sofia, I very much doubt she would ever play there. I'm confused... Is this your last post here before disappearing to the Kitten section permanently, or are you just drunk?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

So much for your empty rhetoric about maintaining civility---please cite-in clear,non-B.S. terms,if you're capable-what was allegedly insulting to Caroline in my previous post.My INTENT was to say that Caro need only win one of those two MMs to qualify for Sofia...given her likely,fairly-high year-end ranking...and that,if she DID somehow miss YEC(which I doubt will occur),then she could end the year on a positive note by winning a half-decent tourney.However,it wouldn't bother me if she refused to play,either...it's her choice,of course

P.S.: Not that it's any of your self-righteous business,but I'll share that I quite rarely imbibe alcohol...was dissuaded from doing so by observing wayward males in my family in my youth...good night

What would this forum be without Burisleif and Bruce sniping at each other? I pray that I never learn the answer to that question.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

From August 2010 to June 2011: 19 tournaments, 9 titles, 12 finals, 15 semifinals

The last 8 months: 11 tournaments, 1 title, 1 final 2 semifinals.

These next few months will be interesting.
I was surprised that she spent her 1st week at #4 by hanging around with McIlroy.
She got to #1 by hard work, and wont get back unless she still has the same motivation

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

I think she may have lost a lot of hunger. She's accomplished most of what you can in singles besides winning a slam. Plus she's made a lot of money along the way. So she may be a bit jaded about the tour then throw in her first serious relationship and tennis may not be so important. She's probably pretty happy in her personal life though.

She had 2 good years, but great players accomplish a lot over many years. She should be hungrier than ever. To do better.
Great players who win a major or 2 or get to #1, dont stop there. They want more.
We'll find out as this year goes on.

Just a little light hearted humour... It's always good to keep our deep cover agents grounded...

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Also while we're mentioning MM tournaments , I wonder if Caro will still play 2 this year now that she isn't contracted to play Bastad? Copenhagen is in the first half of the year and I should hope that she doesn't voluntarily play in Bastad as once again it would entail a ridiculous clay-grass-clay-hard shift.

I hope she skips Bastad too, and I don't have any definite info on the subject, other than I recall it being reported that last year was the last of a 3 year commitment.

She didn't seem all too keen on playing there last year , and I'm just wondering whether she will replace it with a different event? Perhaps Linz to get some indoors practice before the YEC? Though I don't think they'll shell out all that extra money for two top 10 players considering that Petra will almost certainly play due to her being the defending champion.

I'm not actually a fan of it, if you want the honest answer.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Though it's not the ideal approach by any stretch,I think that Caroline is the sort of gal who's mentally strong enough to feel a normal,human ebb in motivation while NOT allowing it to become a major career roadblock.It would be contrary to the character she's shown if she precisely mimicked some of the Tour's dizzy,aimless airheads.Let's not forget that Caroline won a Premier following the start of her relationship...PLUS she chose a bf who has eagerly supported her....Those are two points right there where Caro differs greatly from others

Going from grass to clay to grass over the course of about a month doesn't seem like a good idea.

Her normal post Wimbledon rest and training block is shortened as is due to the Olympics no need to cut it down even more by adding a tournament in that time frame.
