Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

At least now I'm clear with what happened in Caroline's falloff.
Words like confused, hunger, stupid decisions, like a job - its was all mental.
That was clear going back to her losses to Vinci & Mchale when she was 3000 points ahead of #2.

Now she says she's hungry again. So the least we can expect is that at IW & Miami she doesnt lose before playing Vika or Maria or Serena or Petra or Li or Aga.
If she still is losing to players like Ivanovic, and she's hungry, her career is in deep trouble.

Its going to be tough to get back to anywhere close to where she was until she finishes tight sets strongly.
She gave away the Aga match late in set 2, those last 2 points vs Petra were awful misses.
But at least she got thru those draws, and its very important she keeps doing that.
Players like Vika, Aga, Maria have created an aura, where players see their name in the draw and prepare for the next tournament. They know they're probably not having a long week if they draw Vika or Aga in round 2 or 3.
Caro has to keep beating players like Mona & Marion, and get into that elite group of consistent top players again.
I think if she keeps getting very deep into draws, she'll start getting some quality wins.

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!!
