Errors from going from her shots are more understandable/ok than just missing on routine shots.
You have to be concerned that her practice sessions and hard work she puts in arent helping her results.
Whatever the 'excuses' are: Rory, technique change, more aggression, pressure of being #1 without a major, its a year and a half later, and Caroline should be past whatever was holding her back.
Now it seems she works hard before tournaments, then loses immediately. Last spring she lost 10 of 22 matches over 4 months.
Now she starts with 2 losses in 3 matches. When is the last time Vika or Maria lost early at back to back premiers?
Should not be happening now. The end of 2012 should have been a sign of better results in 2013.
This start is very worrisome, if another weak effort at a major, you have to wonder what really is going on, and why arent they changing things, if the current situation is wrecking her career?

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!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I'm curious to know what they're practicing and how the overall practice sessions are going. If they're practicing the right sort of things and her game is looking pretty good in practice, then it would seem her problems are mental and that some sort of sports psychologist should be looked into.

I don't know. I'd have to guess that it's been years since Vika or Sharapova have lost early at back to back premiers if it has happened. Any of their fans feel like jumping in to clarify this?

I would keep an eye on Caro's losses against players ranked outside the top 30. Despite her struggles she's still won most (between 85% and 90%) of her matches against players outside the top 30 over the past year and a half. If this win-loss record drops a lot this year, then it would be a very bad sign.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

I think she needs to string 3-4 good wins together, it did her well after Seoul, she beat Na, had her chances against Aga, close match against Angie and she beat Sam. When she's confident she can pull all kind of matches through but when her confidence is low she can lose to anyone.
Next week is important, hopefully she won't disappoint again.

3R would be a good result now. R16 or QF if she gets a draw from heaven.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

About Caro's contract with Adidas, does anybody here know for how long her contract last? (was it a 10 years long contract?)

It said in GM and some Blogs other players now also will play in Stella dress...

The more exclusive and glamorous 'Stella' line is no more. It has been merged with another Adidas line, Barricade, so the new name will be 'Adidas by Stella McCartney Barricade' .. Some mouthful.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

It's only natural for an athlete with competitive spirit to want to start the following year strongly when the previous season has yielded subpar results.We can sort of overlook Brisbane('just the first event back')...and even Sydney('next week's Slam is all that matters')...but if Caro bombs out early in Melbourne and ISN'T noticeably pissed off about it......then I won't be able to offer much to refute naysayers

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

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

I think most of the current problem is mental. 22 is very young in tennis. Only 2 majors are won by all the players under 25. Its young for ATP also.
She has to pull herself together. She's capable of much better than losing in early rounds. But her current situation isnt bringing out her ability in matches.
She might have to totally hit bottom before she changes things, or she can do this herself, and start playing well.
But its in her head, because she should never lose up a set to Pervak when she's healthy. I dont think her dad calling her a clown helps her. But she doesnt need real coaching advise to get thru early rounds vs noncontenders. Its a lack of mental toughness
