Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Look at this semi in Rome. Errani didnt play anyone. Kirilenko retired. Sharapova withdrew.
Vika could have played Ivanovic ( who just made the semi in Madrid) Kvitova (who beat Vika at Wimbledon & YEC finals) and FO champ Sharapova. Instead Ana loses, she plays Stosur, who never plays well against Vika, now Errani, who looks nervous in a Rome SF.

This is why its so important to be consistent. Draws constantly fall apart, and the players who take advantage of it are the ones who dont beat themselves.

Caroline actually deserves this for blowing up her own consistent game, "to win a major"
Well, she was in a slam final and one point from a 2nd slam final, and just turning 21. She did this to herself, and she is the only person who can get herself out of this mess.
She wasnt some 12 year old, with years ahead to develop a new style of play. She wasnt ranked #240, where she had to do something desperate. Its a crazy decision, and now she just played 5 Premiers in a row and won a total of 2 matches

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!!
