Not everything can be measured by statisitcs; for example, an improvement in attitude would be pretty hard to measure in precise terms.If you'd like something relatively simple, then how about a majority of Caro's opponents having at least some degree of difficulty in breaking her serve?If you're looking for exact numbers, then just compare Caro to players who YOU think have reasonably-effective serves

The most important service statistic is percentage of service games held (which is published on the WTA website). Serena is far and away the best server for the past two years, subjectively and objectively (>80%).

That's pretty much what I had in mind for Caroline in my post above, but my technical knowledge of the sport isn't as good as some of the other posters' here. There are probably at least a few more posters here who would agree with your fair standard

Dang! I might've missed it if not for Saraya, so Feliz Cumplean~os, Sunshine....And don't drink so heavily that you can't distinguish Rory from Jack Nicklaus

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Btw, the WTA page still hasn't featured Caroline's profile in its list of all the former #1s(only the final three gals are missing from that list).Perhaps they were waiting for Caro's b-day as an opportune time to post her achievements

I kind of think that % of service games isn't that good an indicator of how good you're serving. A lot of times it's a reflection of your overall level of play and not the serve specifically.

Ideally I'd probably go by % of serves unreturned but that's not a stat's that's given often.

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Happy birthday - may your day be good and filled with luck - enjoy the Rhianna concert tonight - she's good


What does numerology tell about today - well have a look

Is your birthday on a 11th ? You are gracious, elegant and prudent. People admire your qualities and some even become jealous of you. You are realistic, flexible and adaptable. You are remarkably kind and moral person. You are willing to sacrifice yourself for the one you love. Your lover will always have your gentleness, care and loyalty. You will always be happy to hand around the one you love. You come under the number 2. Napolean 111,Edison, Thomas Hardy were born under the number 2.

Well?

So Miss Sunshine is 23 years young today. Let's hope that her life won't follow sad movies in any way. Caroline deserves happy-ends only.
