But that's really not the most relevant thing today, right? What do you guys expect from R2? Do you have expectations at all? I'd be happy with a set, honestly, even if in a slump Woz is still top 10 and a set off a top 10 player would be huge for someone like Donna. Not to mention that I'm REALLY looking forward to some tv coverage finally - assuming someone in Melbourne doesn't go bonkers and comes up with a nasty scheduling surprise.
In the idol/no idol there's probably some bad phrasing/translation issues which could explain the different answers. And to be honest, Wozniaki isn't a bad person for Donna to model her game off. Due to the fact that she is 16 and doesn't really have the power to be hitting a lot of winners. At least, not at this stage of her development. She should probably adapt her game as she develops though. Relying on poor play from your opponent to win points isn't that viable at the higher levels of play that Donna will be up against if she doesn't burn out/fall down the rankings.
