Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

As expected, I haven't heard back from the tournament and they still falsely claim Wozniacki had already advanced after her second match. I'm not bothering to tell them they have a wrong winner of Petrova - Kirilenko at http://sofia-tennis.bg/en/scores.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Given her 2-2 H2H vs Vinci and 1-4 vs Caro,it might be wiser for Nadia to go for the win tomorrow even though she's locked in to the semis.If form holds,then Caro would face off with the local Bulgarian heroine in her Saturday match

The Top 2 in Group Sredets are known - Petrova and Pironkova - but the order will be determined on Friday when they play each other (the winner will be No.1 and the other will be No.2). In the semifinals, which are on Saturday, Wozniacki plays the winner of Petrova and Pironkova while Vinci plays the loser.

Wouldn't Caro play the loser and Vinci the winner? Top 1 vs Top 2?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

No offense intended towards Bulgaria OR Bulgarians,but they don't have much of a well-known reputation with respect to tennis...so how did the fans treat Caroline today in her match vs. the local favorite??

They were fairly respectful. They pretty much clapped after every point in the first set. But at one point, they did clap louder after a Pironkova letcord than a Wozniacki winner, but that's pretty much expected.

Thanks for the report;according to what you posted,the fans shouldn't have any hard feelings towards Caro in the final

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

So, the 2012 season is over for Caro. What can we say about it?
She started the season as #1 but with limited optimism on my part because of a lot of bad results in the last half of the prior season. The start of the season was acceptable with a QF run at AO but from February to September, the high points were few and far between, like beating Serena in Miami. The unquestionable low point was her loss against Begu in 1R at USO, her favorite slam. The end of the season was somewhat better with two titles and wins over Li and Stosur but also losses against Radwanska and Kerber, players she once could handle. The 18-3 finish has upped the season from catastrophic to just disappointing and ensures her return to top 10.
And what to expect for 2013? I think Caro has halted her slide down the rankings but I don't see many signs of her intending to really develop her game like for instance Aga has done. I expect her to get a title here and there but not any of the big ones and she'll likely spend most of the season ranked in the 7-12 range.

Some stats:
Caro finishes the season in top 10 fourth year in a row.
Caro wins 50 season matches or more fifth year in a row.

Matches won to date:
Caro: 348
Aga: 348
Vika: 348
Funny, huh!?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Caro had 8 top 30 wins in her last 5 tournaments of the season (Seoul through Sofia), 8 in her 1st 18 tournaments (Sydney through US Open).

The majors made this a bad year. Winning just 2 matches in the last 3 majors.
Right now, #1 and a slam final seem far away.
I think moderate goals is the way to think for next year.
If she can make the YEC as a starter & gets to 2 slam quarters, that would be better than 2012, and maybe thats a reachable improvement

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

So how long a vacation will Caro take? Her season ended a week later than normal and she has those exhibitions coming up which result in less potential time for training. Her serve needs a lot of work on her improved forehand such as in Moscow needs to show up more often.

Rory plays in Singapore next week (After the plan) so will she travel with him? (It was said she will go far away...)

I agree. If she makes the YEC and ends the year ranked somewhere between five and eight I'd be reasonable happy. But it won't be easy because it's crowded up there. On the other hand, there are so many tournaments she will play next year where she can improve on this year's result (including three of the four majors) that a higher ranking is well within reach if she's anywhere close to her best.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

This would've been a crappy last match of the year even if Caro had won 2 slams;however,it will soon be forgotten if she can right her ship and begin 2013 by getting back on track in the Aussie season
