Both of those stats have to be some kind of record. Also, if you are going to apologize or make excuses for her grand slam record, then you really also have to buy into the narrative that she did not deserve to be number 1. In any case, lets just hope she starts playing some better tennis before she completely falls off the radar and no one cares about her results at the slams or anywhere else anymore.
Thats what she got criticised for, being a long term #1 and not getting to a slam final while she was #1.
I still think when a young player has F, SF, SF at a major, thats okay. Sometimes luck is involved to win majors.
But overall, if that was the glory days for Caroline, the general perception will be that she underachieved in the biggest tournaments, or just wasnt as good as the best players but was #1 because she played a lot and the tour was soft then because of injuries and retirements

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 am so with you. Hilarious reading ... and I will allow myself a little chuckle, when Hingis bombs out at the first tournament she plays; in R1 ...

It's a cliché, but polls at TF have nothing to do with what voters think will happen but with what they want to happen. If they genuinely think that Hingis will get back into the top five and win majors they must be soft in the head, and I say that as a Hingis fan. To be honest, I very much doubt that Hingis will make a comeback in singles because I'm sure that she realizes all that herself. In doubles, ok. I think she can still put on a respectable show there and it would be fun to see her play again. But in singles? I would be extremely surprised if she would even attempt it.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

If Rory keeps playing lousy, the criticism for both will keep growing.
They were both on top of their sports. Most people in sports think that is so rare, you do everything possible to stay there.
But its their choice. They like spending time together.

Love it or like it, it's irrelevant to this tread.

Which means she's not coming back until the top players are all in the draw.
Everything with Caro is all wrong. The scheduling, the lack of fight.
Things have just fallen and fallen. She almost HAS to get a coach.
It seems she is doing everything possible to unravel her career. She's going into Rogers Cup as a noncontender, after winning it in 2010

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Sharapova has just WD from Roger CUp & I think Vika did not enter it so I think that make Caro the 7-8 seed ?

S. Williams (22) ♦ V. Williams (7) ♦ Vika (2) ♦ Kvitová (2) ♦ Kerber (2) ♦ Muguruza (1) ♦ Ivanovic (1) ♦
C. Wozniacki ♦ A. Radwanska ♦ S. Halep ♦ B. Bencic ♦ S. Stephens ♦ M. Keys ♦ Domi Cibulkova ♦ G. Bouchard ♦ L. Robson ♦ N. Osaka ♦ J. Ostapenko ♦ A. Konjuh ♦ D. Vekic ♦ M. Puig ♦ V. Duval ♦ T. Townsend ♦ L. Chirico ♦ F. Abanda ♦ S. Samir ♦ F. Stollár ♦ T. Andrianjafitrimo
