Congratulation!

Now she joined Virginia Wade, Andrea Jaeger, Conchita Martinez, Jana Novotna, Anastasia Myskina and Svetlana Kuznetsova as players with career high ranking of #2.

She is the 26th player to reach #2 rank after those 6 players and the 19 WTA #1 players.

She was quite good today, but that type of game is not going to win a major final. With a few less untimely errors Aga could have taken that to 3 sets and really made a match of it. Caro need to develop some killer shot and do more with her backhand. She can generate the power, but her game relies too much on control and top spin at the moment.

"Caroline can't hang with the top players" - BOOM! Caroline takes out two at her first YEC


Funny thing is a few weeks ago when she dropped from #3 to #4, a lot of former Danish tennis players came out in the media predicting her fall.

Caroline's response: Moves up to #2 instead.


It's too funny.

It's too funny.

I like Wozniacki, but her results are not what one would expect of a number 1 player. She will have deserved it if she gets there, because she has amassed the most most points over the past 12 months. However, the number 1 ranking is a less significant achievement if players can get there with the results that Wozniacki has had over the past 12 months. As of right now, she has three tournament victories on her ranking in 24 tournaments played. The biggest being Eastbourne. She beat just one top 10 player over the course of those three tournaments (#10 Pennetta). If you compare her record to other recent world number 1's records when they first debuted atop the rankings, it says a lot.

Venus played 15 tournaments and won 9 of them (including 2 slams) to reach the top spot.
Serena played 12 tournaments and won 7 ( including 2 slams and more than double what Wozniacki has won in half the amount of tournaments played)
Henin played 19 tournaments and won 9 (including 2 slams)

Clijsters gained notoriety when she debuted at the top of the ranking without having won a slam, but she still had to win 9 tournaments to get to the top of the rankings. Safina also received a lot of flack when she reached the number 1 ranking, but she played 17 tournaments and won 4 (6 top 10 wins in those tournaments) and 2 slam finals, which is also better than Wozniacki.

Like I said, if Wozniacki reaches the top spot, she will have deserved it. However, in my opinion, it means a lot less (at least from a statistical point of view) than it did in 2003 and earlier.

Mar 20th, 2010, 06:02 AM
I think she has a very good shot to win her first big title tomorrow if she plays like today. Jelena will have a hard time getting through that wall for sure.

She just beat an in-form top 10 player 6-2 6-3. She received bigger challenges from some of the lower ranked players like Zheng. Just goes to show that top 10 players aren't necessarily all that.

Caroline beat one recent Grand Slam semifinalist, one recent Grand Slam quarterfinalist and on top of that Petrova (who beat Clijsters 6-0 6-1 a few weeks ago) and then she cruised through an in-form top 10 player in Radwanska who kicked Dementieva out of the tournament.

That's not as bad as you're trying to make it out as. Jankovic had a bigger cakedraw.

Zheng, Kirilenko, Petrova, Radwanska >>> Peer, Errani, Kleybanova, Stosur

Petrova is higher ranked than Peer
Zheng is higher ranked than Kleybanova
Kirilenko is higher ranked than Errani

Yea, just like she wouldn't make top 10, make it to a slam final, do well at YEC etc.

I stopped believing you naysayers a long time ago.

With that said, (like I told you earlier), Caroline has repeatedly said she plans to retire early because she'd like to have more time for a regular life so she can get college degree and raise a family, but that's a different reason altogether.

Wait a moment! Caro even with a win here will be about 2000 points behind Serena so for her to get to #1 a lot more superior results will have to be added. Almost certainly including another GS final + few more titles.

Jelena was a NOBODY when she was Caroline's age. But it's flattering you're comparing their careers already. I can only imagine what the comparison will look like when Caroline's 25 (unless she retires early)...
Why was she a "nobody" then? BECAUSE THE TOUR WASN'T THE DISGUSTNGLY HOT MESS THAT IT IS TODAY. :weirdo::weirdo: But i'm not gonna waste my time on you, you're clearly too far up Wozniacki's ass to know anything about tennis. :lol::wavey:

The tour is even more competitive and demanding today. That's also part of the reason many top players are struggling a bit.

You have your head way too far up in the nostalgic ass of pre-2000s. If it were up to you it would be Venus, Serena, Henin and [insert either Sharapova, Clijsters, Dementieva, Kuznetsova or some other oldschooler with a name] in the semi-finals of every big tournament from here on to eternity and until that happens, the tour is a "mess". I hope you disappear along with those dinosaurs so we can get some fresh perspectives on this inbred forum instead of the same old constant lamenting.

I will seriously kill somebody if I read one more time that Caro's game is similar to Hingis's. Are you f*cking kidding me? Since when Hingis was a pusher? Being consistent doesn't make you a pusher. Or Henin and Clijsters are also pushers...

The only chance Wozniacki has to reach #1 (GOD FORBID!!!) is until the end of Roland Garros. Then, there is no way she will reach the US Open final again (unless Serena, Venus, Henin and Clijsters are in the same side of the draw) and with Serena collecting some points in the Summer before and after the US Open, she should be far of the #1 spot.

By the way, Wozniacki becomes the first player to reach the Top 2 without a single win over any of the six most accomplished players of the past years (Serena, Venus, Henin, Clijsters, Davenport, Sharapova). :worship:

Serena will lose 700 points, so after Miami she'll be #1 with 7945. If Caro were to win Indian Wells, and then Miami, I think she'd have 7675 pts. If she loses Indian Wells final and wins Miami she'd have 7375 points. So either way it won't be enough - at least I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Mar 20th, 2010, 11:19 AM
I don't understand, even if you are her biggest fan, how one can genuinely root for Caro to become #1. She has gone further than the 4R in a grand slam ONCE. You want her to surpass Serena as the number 1 player in the world? :help:

Serena 0-2 1-3 sets
Venus 0-3 0-8 sets
Jankovic 0-3 2-6 sets
Safina 0-1 0-2 sets
Clijsters 0-1 0-2 sets
Sharapova 0-2 0-4 sets
Ivanovic 0-2 0-4 sets
Mauresmo 1-0 2-0 sets, which made Mauresmo realize she had to retire.

It´s great to know you can be 1-14 with 5-29 sets against former #1 players and still have a shot to become the "best" player in the world. :lol:

Kuznetsova 2-2
Dementieva 2-3
Zvonareva 1-1
Petrova 0-1
Li 1-2
Azarenka 2-2
Stosur 2-2
Radwanska 2-1
Pennetta 2-0

Imagine Rafa Nadal had a realistic chance to become world #1 without winning a Slam, without beating Federer, without ever beating a former world #1 except a semi-retired Safin in 2009 and the only top 10 players he had a winning record against were Jiri Novak and Rainer Schüttler. Welcome to the WozniackiTA. :lol:

Zvonareva 1-1
Petrova 0-1
Li 1-2
Azarenka 2-2
Stosur 2-2
Radwanska 2-1
Pennetta 2-0


She just bagelled Petrova out of this tournament so it's 1-1. And I consider her 3-3 against Dementieva as she spanked Dementieva here in Denmark. I don't care if it was an exhibition. They played it like any other match. She's also 3-2 against Azarenka if we count Fed Cup.


The "former #1"s were just lucky they raked up wins against her when she was so new on the tour. Ivanovic would get destroyed now and Sharapova would lose 3 out of 10. They're dogshit now (as much as it pains me to say with Sharapova). Even Clijsters lost 6-0 6-1 to Petrova whom Caroline just beat easily. I don't remember the last time Caroline got embarrassed like that. Even against all those former #1s Caroline was usually highly competitive even though she was like 17 of age in many of the matches. She even had 4 match points against Serena when she was still a greenling.

2-2 against Kuznetsova, 3-3 against Dementieva, 3-2 against Azarenka, 2-1 against Radwanska, 1-1 against Zvonareva is excellent.

Now she's ready to start turning the tables on some of the other players that took wins against her when she was still very inexperienced. 3 of Venus' 4 wins for example are from 2007. Caroline was nobody in 2007. Just a green teen. Beating her in 2007 means practically nothing. She's improved leaps and bounds since then.

She just beat an in-form top 10 player 6-2 6-3. She received bigger challenges from some of the lower ranked players like Zheng. Just goes to show that top 10 players aren't necessarily all that.

Caroline beat one recent Grand Slam semifinalist, one recent Grand Slam quarterfinalist and on top of that Petrova (who beat Clijsters 6-0 6-1 a few weeks ago) and then she cruised through an in-form top 10 player in Radwanska who kicked Dementieva out of the tournament.

That's not as bad as you're trying to make it out as. Jankovic had a bigger cakedraw.

Zheng, Kirilenko, Petrova, Radwanska >>> Peer, Errani, Kleybanova, Stosur

Petrova is higher ranked than Peer
Zheng is higher ranked than Kleybanova
Kirilenko is higher ranked than Errani
Radwanska is higher ranked than Stosur

sorry but everyone can beat radwanska, she's absolutely NO top player.
petrova beat clijsters 60 61 ok. and?! does that mean nadia keeps playing like that? obviously not. petrova was just horrible n the third set. that was even worse than clijsters in her match against petrova at the aussie open.

Well after a shaky start to 2010 - she's a well deserved #2. If Venus continues on her run - I could think of Venus becoming a worthy #2. But I just don't think Sveta and Dinara of 2nd best player on the tour right now. I think of Lena being better than those two right now.

I think a lot of people confuse how a player plays at their peak with how good they really are overall. At her peak - I don't think Caro is even top 10 maybe top 20 over other players at their peak. But that's a pretty useless indication when players can't play at their peak a whole match let alone a whole tournament. Sveta can blow Caro away on her potential and at her peak. But she keeps losing to Caro becauise she's not good enough to maintain her peak.

It's often said that the true measure of a champion is not how they play when all is going well - but how they play when their A game has deserted them.

Players like Clijsters and Henin are exceptions to the rule as they're top players that have been out for a long time. That's also why they get wildcarded to all the big tournaments and so on.

In my eyes Errani, Stosur, Kleybanova, Peer is a weaker line-up than Radwanska, Petrova, Zheng, Kirilenko and I'm glad the rankings support that notion.

same thing happened for safina when it came to serena. funny thing is. serena BECAME number 1. she won the slams and the points and played for it. aka. her and safina were both playing at the same time trying to maintain or take over the spot. which she did. so question is. who will be the next person to come in winning and take over a spot and not while someone is injured

EXACTLY!! Serena earned that number one ranking. She won the YEC and then made the finals of Sydney and then defended her AO title. She earned it.
What in the hell has Woz done??
Anyways Caroline has like 1800 points to defend during clay while Serena only has FO quarterfinal points. I am fairly confident that #2 is where she stays and no higher

Oh yeah correct, excell forgot to take off 250pts from IW :lol:

if CW wins here and Miami she will be within 500 points of serena. add to that she has over 1500 points to defend after Miami up to RG. Serena on the other hand already has a 500 point cushion with her 700 points from Miami coming off. What is that you ask? How man points does she have to defend after Miami up to RG....NONE CW becoming number 1 before or even after RG is a safe zero to none IMO

but congrats to getting to the number 2 spot. my question is will she be able to handle all the haters. the people basically stating her "consistent losses in semis and finals" has here where she is...u see where it got safina and now look at her. same thing for jankovic even ivanovic

AF MAR : 7944
AF ROM : 7943
AF MAD : 7938
AF FRO : 7438

So after the French open her points will be at minimum 7438 to a maximum of 11658.

That's not Wozniacki's case. She loses before QF at 50-60% tournaments she plays. And she's been past 4th round at slams once in her career.

She got spanked in straights. She had also lost two matches to Caroline just prior to that which brought extra sting to the spanking.

sorry but you're just sick. You really need some professional help. Seriously.
Dementieva beating Pushniacki in a real WTA tour match 6-2 6-1, that was a spanking.
Only sick fans of Pushniacki like you can call a 6-4 7-5 win in an exo match "spanking", the match that no fan cared and wasn't even counted in H2H.

She will be #1 after Wimbledon, if not sooner.

the possibility of that happening would be serena not playing the clay court season at all and CW winning 3 of the tournies (which i don't think she will even play 3) and win RG. thats just to have a chance. factor in Serena actually playing the clay court season...possibility gets smaller and smaller.

well the the pressure for her would be even worst from the media etc. to be ranked number 2 and your losses arent even consistently in the latter stages of tournaments. ...WOW

lets just be honest people. clearly the ranking system is easily able to be played off of the amount of matches and not the quality of the player. so if a decent player wants to come along and play a shit load of matches and get points points points nothing can be done about it. that is how the ranking system works. having said that i hate to hear someone bitch because people complain about the player and their ability. but hell if u r consistent yet your consistency is based off losing (.i.e. u kno how to get 2 the second week of a slam or tier 1 but never can get the W). u don't deserve to be considered in a category where greats names once were...IMO...im just sayin

Wozniacki is scheduled to play every week at the moment up until RG (Miami, PVB, Charleston, Stuttgart, Rome, Madrid and Warsaw) The only rest she'l get is during Fed cup week after Charleston :help:

All ladies that made the QF'S at Indian Wells should put a check in the mail to the Williams sisters for not playing. Who says the Williams sisters are not generous?
Look to your history books, the Williams sisters are no strangers to crashing out of tournaments early now and then.
Congratulations to Caro.

u really cant say "IF" because she truly "CANT" get there. Serena would have to skip everything till wimbledon for that to happen. Clearly that isn't going to happen. And your asking us what another humans reaction would be. WE DONT KNOW...FYI...WE ARE NOT SERENA WILLIAMS...iM JUST SAYIN

Exactly. All this paranoia about how undeserving Caro is of the #1 ranking. First - this thread is about Caro being #2 not #1. Second - of course Caro is undeserving of the #1 ranking right now. Noone is saying she is right now and guess what - that's exactly what the rankings say with Serena miles ahead at the moment. So what's the fuss about Caro being an unworthy #1. :shrug:

And finally - if Caro does get to #1 - she's got to have put in some really fantastic showings - much more than what she's done so far - and Serena has got to do really badly or not play right through tye clay season and at Wimbledon. And if that were to happen - we would then be in to a totally different scenario with great wins from Caro and Serena not really doing anything since AO that you really have to reassess everything.

#2 is making her totally overrated now. since the beginning of the season, she didn´t show nothing. well, IW final is great but with the draw she had I don´t see any reason why to make Ode to Wozniacki. :rolleyes: hopefully, the rest of the tour (Clijsters, Henin, Williams, Sharapova, Kuznetsova...) will wake up and show her the right place.

this is just pathetic. and i am sayin´ it as hater but as realist too. #2 don´t dit her game at all.

The rest of the tour. Lets see.
Clijsters: Trashed 0 and 1 in AO by Petrova, who was just bagled by Caroline.
Henin: Trashed in IW
Williams: Injured? Is that Carolines fault? Voodoo?
Masha: Injured yet again and I'm personally sad about it, but I don't know how its Carolines fault. Or maybe Voodoo again?
Kuzzy: Don't know whats wrong there. She just seems out of match practice.

Funny old game tennis. You have to beat the person on the other side of the net to win a match.

No one said that it was her fault. :lol: The guy was simply saying that he hopes that the real players will show up and thake their rightful places in the top 5/above Caroline. And although they're good achievements, it doesn't change the fact that if the real players do start showing up again, it's just as unlikely that she will lose to them as it was before.
