Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6
The reason for that is they are not oblivious to who they are beating. Even if you lack all confidence you will still probably go into a match vs the world number 200 with confidence. In most cases you are fully aware who is down the other end of the court.
It's why you see Caro get some wins and then still play Aga, Maria etc. and seem to lack all confidence, she is going to be fully aware it is a whole other level to her previous wins. It works the other way too, you will see say Sharapova play a terrible match, and the scoreline will suggest she's in trouble, but deep down you still pretty much know she is going to win, and I am sure she's aware of this too, you know she is not panicking, she still fully believes she will come back and win the match.
