Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Its not just the old style. Its also effort level.
If she wanted to make the YEC, there were 2 Premiers in US after Wimbledon. Coco Vandeweghe was in one final & Cibulkova won the other.
Instead of taking a month vacation after losing round 1 at Wimbledon & losing round 1 Eastbourne, she should have gone straight to the US and played 2 Premiers that had Intl level fields.

Thats just as worrisome as all the sloppy errors at key moments and the losses that were close and might have been wins if she played steadier.
Its the 'want to'. You have to want it bad, and going 2 full months without a match win in the middle of the season while healthy, you dont deserve to be playing in the YEC

All the errors, and vacations, it comes down to the mental side. She still can physical play at a high level. She has to fight for it while playing smart.
At break point when you get a short lob return, you cant muff that point. Any weekend hacker would let that bounce, see where Aga was standing, and tap it in the open court

But this year is over, except that she can finish with some wins while not playing the YEC.
Next year we'll see how much she wants it. Starting with the AO

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!!
