You say Caroline's serve was good, but still at the end of the day she got broken 8 times out of 16 against an average returner. Maybe the serve wasn't the problem, her game was very bad was more of the problem, but it still doesn't paint a great picture.

Caroline won 3 matches this week for the first time since Indian Wells, in a way though I'd rather see an improvement in her level of her play. She got through playing some very average tennis vs some weak players, but ultimately if this is all she can bring to the table week after week, the only direction she is heading in is down. Of course you have the winning on your bad days is a good thing idea, but the problem for Caroline is, this isn't her bad days, this is her average day, this is how she has played for months. She's not a player just having the occasional off day scraping through, that is her level, long term she will struggle unless her level improves.

She didn't just lose to Jamie which would be no disgrace, she gave it away in the second set. Time and again lately she's been in the driver's seat and just taken her foot off the gas.

Caroline is now won 6, lost 10 vs players outside the top 40 in 2013. A 37.5% winning %.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Caro's serve wasn't a problem (she actualy was serving very good in this tournament), the problem is 2nd, 3rd shot she makes, she is just too passive, she never goes for the lines, she just keeps hitting every ball to the middle of the court!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Anyway here is the race:

Quote:
1 Williams 6960
2 Sharapova 5790
3 Azarenka 4950
4 Errani 3576
5 Radwanska 2937
6 Li 2800
7 Jankovic 2196
8 Kirilenko 2166
9 Kerber 2122
10 Kvitova 2051
11 Wozniacki 1975
12 Stephens 1897
13 Vinci 1782
14 Kuznetsova 1657
15 Suarez Navarro 1631
16 Ivanovic 1568
Caroline needs at least a R3 minimum out of Wimbledon, and preferably R4+.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Spots 7 and 8 are up for grabs, fingers crossed for a good run in London. Though it will come down to the results during the summer hardcourt season most likely.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Caroline will need to log around 2000 points (probably just over) from Wimbledon, Toronto, New Haven, US Open, Tokyo, Beijing, Luxembourg to qualify for Istanbul. Only real event she is likely to add to her schedule is Cincinnati. Just over 2000 points won't be easy from a maximum of 8 events, certainly cannot afford any early exits at the grand slams.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

That list is amazing, all because Caro didnt draw into Maria's quarter at IW.
She drew into Vika's quarter & Vika was injured.
Now she still has a YEC chance.
I dont expect much at Wimbledon, but I want to see her fighting on hardcourt.
I liked her fight against Makarova & Hampton this week, but her low level of play makes Caro very beatable in any match

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

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

in all honesty (I haven't seen her match today, so I can't judge), but I am not disappointed for that loss...during the week Caro played some nice tennis, finally thought for every point and her serve was much better than in the past weeks, there's a lot to do and for sure we can't expect her to turn around her slump all of a sudden and win Wimbledon now, but she's moving to something better and her confidence and fighting spirit are coming back too.
Ok, today she lost a match where she should have simply closed it out with all the chances she had, but compared to the loss to BoJo in Rome, this time she thought and her opponent is a much better player...look at the the fact that she did better than Aga for example.

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Having the finalist from Birmingham potentially in the 2nd round is one of the better draws?

My ideal draw for the 1st two rounds for Caro would have been someone who sucks on grass and is in poor form plus a poor/mediocre serve would be nice.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Cant worry about draws in tournaments Caro has no chance to win.
This week, she could have won. She was serving 76 54 30-0 and lost.
But she's done that a lot, including majors.
I've said all along that #1's who dont win majors, they dont hold serve.
That should have always been the main issue, not her forehand.

But overall, she served okay this week. She tried hard, and was close to winning this title.
She has to keep going from here to Wimbledon to hardcourt. Keep moving forward

A high # of aces doesn't necessarily mean you're serving that well.

If Caro can't find it in herself to take a bit more risk on a surface like grass, then where will she?
