Actually, Wozniacki has very little to defend until the start of the clay-court season. If Serena and Safina don't do much for the next two months, Wozniacki has a genuine shot at #1.

Low ranked scrubs feel like that against any top player. I meant top 10-20. Do you think they fear Wozniacki?Fear of getting bored to death maybe but intimidated?No.

What a fall for Elena and Vera:sad:
I'm so used to Lena being a top 5 player these days, this sucks.
Still, Lena performed pretty poor from the stretch between Dubai and Wimbeldon last year. I reckon she can pick up some major points in North America and during the clay court season. Likewise Vera, she'll fall further back if she fails to defend Indian Wells but after that she'll be gaining points.
Sickened to see Caroline move up to #3 based on those above her performing poorly rather than her performing well. She won't stay there long:rolleyes:

I think Amanda Coetzer was no. 3 with only two small titles.

I just checked and Amanda Coetzer made two semifinals(Australian Open and Roland Garros) in 1997 to become number 3. That season she had 15 top 20 wins, 9 top 10 wins and 7 top 5 wins.:eek: She also made the semifinals or better in 17 of the 26 tournaments she played.
She won two titles, The Seat Open and the Budapest Open and made the finals of Leipzig where she lost to Novotna(world number two) in three sets.

IMO much more impressive than Wozniacki :rolleyes:
Who had 5 top 10 wins and 2 top 5 wins(both over Dementieva:o)
Caro made the semifinals or better in only 10 of the 26 tournaments she played.
Not only that but so far her 2010 has been :o
The only real edge Caro has was making the finals of the US Open but that was a fluke draw(only player in top 25 that she faced was Kuznetsova):help:.

I rest my case she is the worst top 3 player in the history of the game.

Even Nathalie Tauziat, Amanda Coetzer and Manuela Maleeva-Fragniere kick her ass.
And Amanda Coetzer and Nathalie were like 20 centimeters shorter than this pusher. Whats her excuse for being so mediocre.

I am really happy for Caro but I do not think that it will last. The only way for her to remain in the top 5 is that she has to play a lot of tournements because her results alone will not be enough. She needs more power in her game to be able to take it to the next level. Her loss to Na Li proved that for me. I so wanted her to win that match but she just lacks the fire power.

I don't know that she can even handle playing in a lot of tournaments because she has had several little injuries lately.

Now it all becomes clear!

Venus figured Serena would likely take the title anyway, so why not
do Caroline(whom has quickly become a Williams Family Friend) a
favor and duck out against Li to give Caroline the spot!

And Venus had to make it convincing, so to throw off suspicion.

Venus, such a giver! :lol:

IMHO she's a really strong player if she plays her active defense. Like she did not against Li Na :rolleyes:.
But she should really improve her game on the net. Then she could stay in the top5 for sure.

Of course not - she is the newcomer on that list, and it is obvious that the newcomer will always not seem to compare with the others, but reaching top 3 as a teenager is in itself a great accomplishment granted only very few players, and looking at what the other names on that list eventually accomplished during their carriers, I think it bodes rather good for Carolines future. I think a lot of posters seem to forget, that Caroline is still a teenager, when they pass their judgement on her. She still has a lot to learn, and only time will tell if she will be as great as the others on that list, but I really don't see any good reason why she should not.

Eastbourne = cakewalk. New Haven = Premier tournament with the field of a MM. :yeah:

No, with smart play I meant the ability to hold the opponent back on the baseline and placing the counterstrike at the right time. This is a very tough job today, much harder than 20 or 15 years ago. So I called it smart play.
I think she did this pretty good in the US-Open final against Kim (and of course in many other matches in 2009). Kim was in great form but only a bit better than Caroline.

Jan 31st, 2010, 07:32 PM
Lol, Pieter, I like you, but your arguments are about as solid as a piece of wet paper :lol:

Caroline's only big win was vs. Kuznetsova in USO last year? What about her great 3 setters vs. Dementieva, the 62 62 vs. Kuznetsova in Eastbourne 2008, tight losses to Jankovic at slams or the MP's vs. Serena in Sydney last year?

Only MM-titles? As far as I know she has two premier titles and WTA actually do award the same amount of points for those, no matter which players you beat. And surely a slam final is better than any premier title.

And doesn't always play fair? Yea, the time-out vs. Li Na seemed questionable but it was apparently enough to make her pull out of a tournament which takes place more than a week later.

It seems a bit lame that you hate on Caro because she has some good results and achievements. You should hate on your own favourites for being such retards and lose in the tournaments Caro get her points from :)

She didn't win against Serena so that doesn't count as a win.

overrated in the looks department
annoying fans who constantly make threads about her
over dramatics/heart seizures like in Doha last year

worst number 3 in history
is a pusher irrelevant
no net skills
horrible volleys irrelevant, considering the point above
can put the ball into play for 3 hours straight without knowing what to do with it
always puts the ball back in the middle of the court even if she has an opportunity for a winner
boring personality irrelevant
overexposed in the media irrelevant
airhead irrelevant
overrated in the looks department irrelevant
annoying fans who constantly make threads about her irrelevant, and as far as I know, her haters talk more about her than her fans
over dramatic like in Doha last year irrelevant

She just said that out of respect for Na Li. It wouldn't have been nice if she in the post-match interview had been like "Yeah. I would've totally won if not for my thigh acting up."

She wrote on her blog two days ago that a physiotherapist had recommended her not to compete in Fed Cup because of that thigh injury.

I'm not trying to justify Wozniacki's gamestyle as such, merely pointing out that she is not the 1st and she won't be the last to have success playing in the manner that she does. And you should know, I am hardly a fan of Wozniacki. I simply do not see that she is doing anything that unusual within the contexts of tennis history. Indeed go back a few years and the type of rallys a player like Wozniacki plays were much more common than the type of rallys most of today's power hitters play. I don't suggest that change to be a good or bad thing, it's simply evolution and change happens, I simply say this to make it clear what Wozniacki is doing is not unusual in the slightest. Once upon a time it was an extremely common way to play the game.

She might be a bit on the boring side but I've seen much worse and I really don't see where the sense in making an example of her as some kind of freak of nature is sensible. And in fairness to her, she does a lot more than just "push" the ball back at her opponent. If she that was all she did she would be hammered every match she played. She hits with enough pace and depth and choses where to hit the ball effectively enough that most opponents simply aren't able to score easy winners of her. That is not easy and takes a lot of skill.

I won't however be making anymore posts in reply simply because I don't feel strongly enough about her to support her even though I do find the anti-Wozniacki brigade to be *ahem* a little bit on the silly side shall we say.

As much as you have to respect everyone's individual game, I think people in this thread are right - not too many players will feel intimidated facing the number 3 player in the world if it's Caro.

Shvedbarilescu
Feb 2nd, 2010, 11:02 PM
She is the least aggressive top 5 player in quite a few years, I will give you that. Probably the last top five player with her level of aggression prior to her was Amanda Coetzer and that's quite a while. I still wouldn't chose to use the word inept for any player who has had the success she has, whether I like her, and believe me I don't, although my feelings for her are more a bland neutral indifference with a touch of distain rather than a raging hatred, or not.

I am not really a fan of Amanda's but I respect what she accomplished.
Amanda Coetzer never hit just 3 winners, she had at the least 8 or 9. She had great volleys, net game, spin, drop shot.
and lets not forget she was 1.57!

Caro Wozniacki wishes she had Amanda Coetzer's skill. Go watch some old matches of Coetzer vs Graf 97 Roland Garros or Australian Open QF vs Venus! 20+ winners, great ralleys. She actually tried to do something with the ball even when she was moon balling. All Caro does is to put the ball in the middle of the court with the same pace. She is the definition of a wall.
How she manages to play like that is mind boggling, she is 180m, Coetzer is 157m and she makes Coetzer look like Serena! LOL

There is no excuse for her to play in any other style than the one who wins her the most matches. Any other suggestion is completely irrational and not worthy of debate. You must have enormous confidence in her skills and talent if you feel she can do even better than what she has done so far with a different style of play.

You have a point there. Certainly Wozniacki should be strong enough to play a more aggressive game. But then again, with the success she has had playing the way she does I think she can justify why she plays the way she does quite nicely. I'd certainly be very happy if I had her prizemoney. But in all likelihood she will develop more ability to hit winners as she gets older and develop into an even better player. Not that I think she will ever become a terribly exciting player to watch, but the thing is I don't think she is going to go away for a long time so you are going to have to get used to her.

For me, she doesn't bother me too much as I don't tend to worry about who's at the top of the rankings and instead I take more interest in how my lowly ranked favs are doing. :lol:

Wozniacki is capable of playing more aggressive. Although her forehand is underpowered, her backhand is technically excellent, and she is capable of producing many flat down-the-line winners off that side. But why should she expend more energy and time on trying to play that way against the WTA's rank-and-file when she can win a lot easier by "pushing"? That doesn't make any logical sense. When she plays the top girls, she usually goes out with a much more aggressive mindset and almost always acquits herself well (from 2009, see: two wins over Dementieva; match against Serena in Sydney; US Open final; matches against Azarenka and Zvonareva at YEC). Her main problem is that, when she gets in trouble against the rank-and-file, she has trouble switching from a defensive mindset to an aggressive mindset, as shown against Li at the AO.

The way some people on here talk, it's as if they think they could beat Wozniacki themselves.

I would never use such an ill-advised term as "talentless" for someone ranked in the top 100, let alone the top 10. In fact, I would be hesitant to apply it to anyone who regularly wins matches on international level, even on ITF level. It simply defies logic to use that word for someone who won Junior Wimbledon before turning 16 and who has had overwhelming success in a relatively short time on the WTA Tour. Right now she is the only teenager in the top 35.

To repeat the question you ignored: Do you think she can be even more successful with an aggressive style of play?

I do. I'm not saying she should try to be a ballbasher (although, from what I've heard, she actually did try to be until about two years ago) - she's always going to be a player who structures her game primarily around defense. But if she sharpens the aggression in her game like she's capable of doing, i.e. going for big backhands when the opportunity prevents itself, and playing generally with more width and moving the ball around more, I think she's a potential Slam champion, with particular chances at the French Open.

It wouldn't hurt her chances against non-top-players at least. And against in-form top-players too.
But she could became more vulnerable against the likes of Dementieva, Kuznetsova and Azarenka having a bad day.

^^ Caroline is already working diligently to improve her game.

Haven't you seen her new one-handed backhand slice that she's trying to implement? She's been working a lot on that during off-season and showed it off a few times during AO. It's not like she has an "I'm a complete player and don't have to develop anymore" attitude. She's young and her game hasn't matured yet. She still needs more confidence at the net and she admits it.

A question to the experts here who follow the rankings.

I'm not aware of Caroline winning any top tier tournaments like Miami, Indian Wells, Canadian Open (or whatever they call it these days) etc. Caroline also hasn't won a slam.

Has Caroline won any top tier tournaments? I wasn't aware that it's possible to get to top 3 without any big titles.

She won Eastbourne and New Haven last year, Premier events with weak fields. She reached the final in top tier Madrid, thanks to a cakewalk draw and then gets demolished by Clayfina. :) So basically, she hasn't won anything big, the US Open final makes up for a great deal of her points tally since she sucked in all the other Slams last year and this year's Australian Open.

With your comments in mind, then I take it that the other players have not played up to their potential and not made many points, allowing Caroline to climb the rankings on the back of relatively little success?

Incidentally I was in Eastbourne for the semis, saw Caroline play Alexandra, i.e Wozniacki v Wozniak (its amazing how often they draw eachother in tournaments). It was a good match, Alexandra was the one going for her shots but Caroline played very steady and kind of grinded out a 3 set win.

Imo, Alex can beat Caro with ease if she doesn't make all those lame errors. I saw that match in Eastbourne on tv, saw the match from this year's Australian Open and I definitely think Alex should've won all of their previous meetings.

In the past twelve months, Caro has lost 13 times to a player ranked outside the Top 10. That's not counting the loss to Clijsters at the US Open Final and also not the retirements against Wozniak and Kremer. :spit:

Caro had more winners and unforced errors than Wozniak in their Eastbourne match: Caro 27 winners to 12 for Wozniak, Caro 37 unforced errors to 26 for Wozniak. :rolleyes:
