Much closer than the score shows.
Shahar was 2/18 on BPs. 10 of them wasted in UEs she can usually put in her sleep :o
Work on that play on big points, Shahar. :(

Congrats Caroline :) did what she had to do.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:11 AM
Amazing winner from Caro :D

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:11 AM
Shahar is making way too many errors for her style of play. Good things is that a lot of her errors were just a few inches long on the baseline so hopefully eventually those will start falling in.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:11 AM
Caroline :) :yeah:
she's in a good spot in draw to go far

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:11 AM
Yap, the scoreline is not showing how close was the match. Shahar lost so many BP that could turn the match. Caroline was solid and very good when she really had to get the big points. Shahar was playing very good, if she will have better draws she will back to the top 30, right now she is paying the price of her slump in the ranking....

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:13 AM
Too bad she had to play her doubles partner in the first round. She should win that 2nd round too pretty easily.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:15 AM
Well done Caro :woohoo:

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:16 AM
I have Caro going to the SF :)

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:17 AM
good job caro.
shahar almost came back in the second set with all those 0-40's but looks better than she did 3 weeks ago.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:25 AM
Caro played the bigger points better hence the scoreline. Peer with too many errors, when it mattered most.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:33 AM
Caro :)

Kept her cool when Peer fought back a little in the second and the Israeli fans carrying on :rolleyes:

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:37 AM
Well done Caro! :) But 18/2 bps saved :eek:

Vivi Ruano waits in the 2rd rd.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:44 AM
Sends quite the message to the rest of the field :yeah:

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:54 AM
well done Caro!

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:14 AM
Caro :yeah:
Didn't expect it to be so clear! Tough opponent but easily won!

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:17 AM
Keep it up Caro :D

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:18 AM
Ill be upset if she doesnt make the quarters at least. I really want this to be her breakout tournament, I like her more every time I see her play! :hearts:

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:19 AM
She really has a bright future in store for her :)

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:20 AM
Great job, Caro! :inlove:

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:40 AM
I really want this to be her breakout tournament

I'm sure she wouldn't want any breakouts in this tournament! ;)

Ok bad joke, but the way she's playing now, don't bet against her reaching the QF or even the semis this year!

Didn't Peer make it to the rd of 16 back in 2007?

Peer made the QF in 06 I believe. She is a horrible player and her come ons when she was like 63 52 down were laughable..and the israeli fans heckling Caroline between serves and after faults was so ridiculous...it was obvious they had no idea about tennis.

Jan 19th, 2009, 09:25 AM
Caro will beat Ana and make the quarter finals. Has a chance against Safina as well.

Jan 19th, 2009, 09:45 AM
keep it up Caro.

Jan 19th, 2009, 09:55 AM


Jan 19th, 2009, 10:11 AM
dammit i didnt see the match :mad:

Caro :woohoo:

Jan 19th, 2009, 10:12 AM
Well done Caro

Jan 19th, 2009, 11:37 AM
Expected the scoreline to be muh closer. Yay Caro! Hope you can go very far! :)

Jan 19th, 2009, 12:02 PM
:bounce: sweet! well done caro!

Jan 19th, 2009, 12:25 PM
caro ;) :D :devil:

never in doubt :)

Jan 19th, 2009, 01:01 PM
Caroline :yeah:

Certainly a great chance to make the QF's with Ana playing poorly.

Jan 19th, 2009, 01:37 PM
I first saw Caroline play at Wimbledon last year against JJ and was really impressed with her. Since then she keeps getting better and better, the top 5 is beckoning.

Jan 19th, 2009, 06:38 PM
Caro :yeah:

fatty sausage

Good win for Caroline, but let's not get too excited--She was supposed to win that match!

As someone mentioned before, Shahar had many BPs that she couldn't capitalize on. Shahar - you are a grinder - you can't make that many unforced errors! Plus, wear a looser top, or lose a bit of your tummy!

Jan 19th, 2009, 06:54 PM
Like many have said, i expect caroline to make her first grandslam quarterfinal here. I just don't see ana beating her in the shape she's in. This will be her breakout tournament.

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:16 PM

Jan 19th, 2009, 07:58 PM
:( Nice try Shahar. Encouraging moments...

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:00 PM
Big big fan of Caroline Wozniacki. She's the future of tennis. She has a big game, she's great.

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:03 PM
Shame she had to eliminate her own double partner but so it goes...

I really hope to see Ana vs. Caroline in the 4th round :lick:

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:04 PM
she won the match doing this...

Sorry, cant get enough of it.

Love you Caro. :kiss:

Jan 19th, 2009, 08:19 PM
I love her and really hate Peer so i was thrilled with this result

Jan 19th, 2009, 09:42 PM
Go Caro!!

Jan 19th, 2009, 10:19 PM
:haha: I didn't know these two are playing doubles together!

Jan 19th, 2009, 11:43 PM
Way to go Caroline!! :bigclap:

Jan 20th, 2009, 12:03 AM
Caro :yeah:

Jan 20th, 2009, 02:48 AM
excellent, good luck in round two Caro.

Jan 20th, 2009, 11:59 AM

Jan 20th, 2009, 12:17 PM
