Other than that one great point, the wheels have come off for Woz in the last 3 games. This is the first time I've seen her play, the haters are ridiculous. She has a nice game.

Well she did play doubles at this US Open.
Her and Cristea played pretty good against Venus and Serena.
When you respect Kim's passing ability, it's tough not to get a little loose on the volleys.

She's not that agresive all the time.
When she doesn't feel she has to, she's quite passive.

But kudos to her on going for it in her biggest match ever.

Spoke too soon. Suddenly we are on the 2nd Deuce of Kim's service game and now a break point.
It's an interesting matchup. Kim fighting the spin and Wozniacki fighting an elite elite player.

Damn she's serving for the set now-Clijsters an UE machine at the moment:tape:

I AGREE! THE HATERS ARE MAINLY BALL BASHING WILLIAMS AND SHARAPOVA FANS. IF SHE BECOMES A BETTER VOLLEYER, SHE COULD BE A GREAT PLAYER.

She's playing a good match for her first slam final. People really need to get off her back.

She's still young, so hopefully the volleys will improve as she gains more big match experience. She's had a few more chances to sneak in and finish off points, but has retreated. But she's doing pretty well in the biggest match of her life, especially compared to some GS final trainwrecks we've seen before...

This is how she should be playing.

I think she's playing really well; nice smart tennis. Sure her volleys aren't the best, but at least they are over the net and in the court and she is winning a lot of those points.

That was a thoroughly enjoyable 1st set imo.

Caro has such a watchable game, it's fascinating.

BTW, since I never joined the Men's forum, I'll just take this opportunity to say Roger Federer plays at a level far above anything tennis has seen before. Djokovic is a monster just to hang with him.

The Entire Wta Should Learn How To Volley.

Agreed. Definitely a skill that 80% of the Tour could improve greatly... Such an advantage for the handful who use it well.

very few have good net instincts, even if they have good volleys.

i think its because of the 2 handed backhands, that seem to be the standard now.

i agree most WTA players need to learn just basic technique and court positioning on the volleying. its just so basic stuff as well that they lack most of the time.

as for the match its on clijsters racket, she will win it, or throw it away with ue's.

I agree she has a nice game (except her volleying technique), I guess the tennis dummies out there identify so well with BBB's (barinless ball bashers)

While this statement is made sarcastically, it is actually largely true. People often forget how important approaching shots are for volley. There are times volley doesn't need approaching shots, for example when the opponent makes a short fluffy shot, but you can't depend on that all the time. I think Andy Roddick is a good example of a player with decent volley but often toasted at the net due to his stupid approaching shots. On the other hand, approaching shots doesn't have to be Mark I power shots. Stefan Edberg routinely used chip and charge to huge success. Even his FH approaching shots were fluffy for men's standard, but they had good spins and placements.

There are a lot Caro has to improve to take her game to another level. Volley and approaching shots are no doubt among them.

I love how Caro plays, she really thinks through the points and it is a refreshing change from all the ball-bashing prevalent on tour these days.

With a better serve and improved net game, she'll definitely have chances to win bigger titles than she has done.
