Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Caro's lost the first set in her last 4 matches. In 2011 she won every set in Dubai. Every set until the final in Doha. Lost 1 first set at IW.
She beat Sharapova and Bartoli 61 in the first set in 2011 IW SF & F.

Thats one thing that really changed, how she comes out slowly and loses the 1st set. Happens way too often and puts her opponents in position to relax set 2 and go on in set 3 to win the match.

I dont know why she starts so slowly, but forget winning streaks when you're always down a set. And even with the fortuitous w/o at IW, Caro has lost 4 of her last 9 matches. Almost half. Pretty much what she's doing at majors, losing 5 of her last 10 matches, without any finals, or anything close to a final.

She needs to be ready from the start and try hard to win that first set

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
