Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6
She rose to #1 because of some good and frequent play and only one injury I remember, but also because S. Williams and Sharapova (even though she played hurt) were out of the game, Kim Clijsters limited her play to fewer and fewer tournaments, and Azarenka's game hadn't come together yet and she had too many injuries. Once she was well, she led the way in how to destroy Caroline's game, Caroline's "coach" had no answers, and the floodgates opened with many lower ranked players whacking the ball by her every time she hit a ball short, which was often. They destroyed her "wall" she foolishly claimed to have. Then S. Williams and Sharapova became healthy, and her career is now done unless she gets a very good, tough coach. I don't understand what you all her saying about her attempt to become aggressive hurt her. I've never seen her be aggressive. Maybe for a few minutes, but that is it. I have watched almost all of her matches since I "discovered" her I can't even remember when now. I think it was shortly before she played that match in a high wind and her hair was blowing all over her face.
