Personally I don't care about YEC just for the sake of participating. She's been in a YEC final, so it's like "been there, done that". She'll qualify if she gets her act together and gains 500 or 900 points at one or more of the next three slams. If she doesn't, then it doesn't really matter as far as I'm concerned. I don't think Caroline's main issue is to find a schedule that will allow her to earn the points needed for YEC.
Having said that, I must also stress that I'm generally much more optimistic than you guys. And I don't think Caro's career is a complete mess at the moment.
I follow Danish tennis a lot - all kinds of tennis, also unranked players. I also follow Swedish tennis to some degree, and I really envy Sweden and their abundance of players. At the moment, there are 17 ranked WTA players in Sweden. In Denmark there are two! And there's a tournament in Båstad this week. Sweden have 19 women in the main draw, Denmark 2.
Still, Wozniacki has more WTA ranking points than all of Sweden's 17 WTA players combined! In fact, she has more than 50% more WTA points than all the Swedish players added together (I jus did a check
). So yeah, Caro's pretty pathethic at the moment, but everything is relative. And we should be pretty pleased after all. Sure, she doesn't belong in the top 10 with the play or attitude she's shown the last 4 tournaments, but I still think there's more to come. She's already achieved so much more than anyone had ever expected, so she really deserves that we have some confidence in her when the going gets tough.
