View Full Version : How does Wozniacki compare to the top "villains" in tennis history?

It's no secret that the majority do not like her here for whatever reason. A lot of posters would love to see her get hurt, humiliated or embarrassed. She's obviously not a bad player at all.
But how does she compare to others in the past? Like Justine, Navratilova etc? Is she more liked? more hated?

people may not like her, but she's hardly a "villain" in their eyes

She doesn't.

It's been a frustrating last 5-6 years and without Serena, Justine, Sharapova at the #1 spot at least for a little while the WTA would have been shit.

A lot of posters are negative towards her, but I've never seen the public at an event go against her. Well, Stuttgart, but she was playing a German. She's not a villain in the traditional way. Hell, the only time Henin was REALLY a villain was Australia '06. The other times she was obnoxious in a match the crowd was still behind her.

Navratilova for a long stretch was genuinely disliked by the American public, which was the tennis market that mattered, and I'm not talking about the tennis-viewing public. Nobody will ever compare to Navratilova in terms of genuine pop-culture villain-hood.

Wozniacki doesn't permeate into pup culture nearly as much, especially state-side but not even in Europe. Henin was pretty genuinely highly regarded in Europe, and pretty genuinely anonymous in terms of U.S. consciousness. Neither compares.

The main reason people dont like her is because she is one of many players recently who have gotten to number 1 without a grand slam. It started with Kim in 03, as well as Mauresmo, but both those players went on to win grand slams and had been consistently taking it to the top players when they got to the top.

Now, 3 players have been at the top without grand slam wins at all in their resume's. I think people are just getting sick of it, and they take it out on her, when she herself isnt really doing anything wrong, she just represents a group of players now that can get to number 1, and not really be a huge threat at slams.

I think they just need to increase the points you get when you win a grandslam, and maybe that would correct the problem. But the tour doesnt want that, it wants to reward the people that play 20 tournies a year, and that needs to change.

The message boards hated her before she was number 1...
Then it band-wagoned from there and everyone was convinced by one another that the girl is not deserving or it was her fault that the tour was a mess.
Incidentally, they overlooked some players that have actually taken advantage of situations and got slams while playing bad or had generous draws.

Davenport was also #1 without having won a slam for the past year. So it's not like it's anything new that you can reach #1 without a slam title in your ranking points.

There were no greater "villains" in the history of this board than two wildly successful but disenchanted sisters that are not playing right now. NOBODY! I used to think it was in people's head until I realized people really maligned them.

So people around here don't like Caroline. There will be somebody in 3-5 years that will take her place. Big deal.

Remember folks there are THOUSANDS of members on this board. It amazes me after almost ten years, people are still sensitive about negative comments around here.

I used to be one of those sensitive idiots but it's not even worth my energy anymore.

Its probably only a small handful of people in this forum who dislike her because she has beaten their favorite, and the rest are just parrots going along due to insecurity, wanting to "belong" to a group, call it immaturity.

Its like a schoolyard thing, the bully has has its followers so they don't get bullied themselves. I bet you in here 99% of these persons are just insecure teenagers. Not exactly a reality based sample of tennis fans.

Since nobody of them has actually met any of the persons they claim to hate, whether its Caro, Ana, Kim, Serena, Venus, Stosur, Maria, Kirilenko, Vika or whom ever is the bad flavour of the day, lets face it, one starts a bad rep because his of hers mother or father just yelled at them, and rest of the teenies follows.

Its not like you will hear any solid evidence or valid reason to hate this or that person when they burp, none of the players have killed anyone or committed atrocity to human kind, its just invented outrage towards a player.

Lets not pretend anything like that is long lasting or based on any reality, some of them Love/Hate Justin Bieber and some of them Love/Hate Jonas Brother's, that should not be taken as evidence they like or dislike good music.

I love how you've psychoanalysed Caro haters, when in actual fact it's probably just because she's just dull through and through. I'm far from insecure and I don't like her. She's like the High School Musical version of tennis. Always happy clappy vomiting rainbows and sparkles, blonde, probably does jazz hands whilst walking to the court screaming about how perfectly wonderful her life is etc. She sounded more interesting as a teenager when she was hurling abuse at linesmen. Can we have that version of her back? People don't like things that are disinteresting or boring and being honest, that's what Caro is. I find Radwanska more interesting to watch than Woz. At least Radwanska has an attractive looking game, but her game is still incredibly dull so not many people like her either. I don't hate Caroline whatsoever, but I cannot stand her game as it doesn't have that wow factor IMO, I don't like listening to her or watching her either, so why should I like her? She isn't a villain in the slightest because she just doesn't have enough dimensions to be a villain. Villains are at least interesting.

The number of points allocated for a GS is considerable. IMO Fran and Sam are really quite overrated in the rankings because of the points they got at RG. Just look at where they are in the Race. I would not like to see them get even more more points for that and ranked even higher. We've had many number #1s without a slam in their previous 12 months since 2003 - Kim, Lindz, Momo, JJ, Dinara, Caro. And the tour is just fine.

If there's a problem with that - then the problem is with the players who having won a slam which brings a lot of points weren't able to go on and get the #1. It shouldn't be made easier for them when they aren't #1.and the top men have no problem with pretty much the same ranking system.

:confused: But by that time Lindsay was already a 3time SLAM CHAMPION, its one thing to not have won a slam based on your calendar year results but its a whole different story to have NEVER won a slam period(let alone not even have reached a slam final the calendar year and only 1 Final ever......) See Jankovic,Safina,Kim etc had atleast made slam Finals during their stint(or lead up) to number 1

Thanks guys!:) (auch für den Teil auf Deutscg)

About the slam thing... it is indeed weird, but what should she do? Should she apologize: "Oh I'm so sorry that I am #1 without having won a slam yet, I do not want to be on top of the rankings, please forgive me"...
She does her best to stay on top and to win that slam some time, well it would be the task of her opponents to take that #1 from her, apparently at the moment no one manages to do that, so none is (consistently) good enough to make it --> she deserves to be #1; and once someone is good enough, she won't be #1 any longer, that's how it goes.

In the end it is just about liking or disliking some player's game, looks, interviews or whatever. One shouldn't fight battles about such things. :)

Well you seem like a perfectly reasonable person in this forum. You don't seem to be a hater of this or that player, so my description is obviously not meant for you.

The ones i describe are more like the ones who copy something another person has said, adding the comment "THIS" or "What he/she said", since they are unlikely to be able to form a thought of their own, let alone transform a thought into a sentence and write it down.

Let me congratulate you, learning a new word as long as "Personality" must have taken a real effort and patience from your teachers. Its a good sign, means they have not fully given up on you. I hope the next lesson will include teaching you not only how to spell and write, but also the meaning of the word.

First you claim a person has not enough personality to be a villain, thats actually a good thing, since having Sadistic Personality Disorder is not something you should strive for. (at least in most parts of society, apparently not in yours though)

Then you claim little to no personality, see if you had been taught the meaning of the word, you would know a person with no personality is a very lonely person, isolated, depressed, no friends, introverted. According to what we hear from other players on tour, and the reporting that does not seem to be the case.

See how easy it is to dismantle your claims with a bit of thinking? Try it, its fun.

Nothing to do with personality guys... This isn't a movie, it's a tennis tour. We think.
She's villain-ized by the amount of hatred towards her. I mean I think there were posters who were laughing and enjoying it when she was hurt. So it's gotten pretty bad.

You are right, it can be extremely difficult to fathom words and meanings without kids help like banners and smileys, copying short sentences adding "THIS" or "What he said".

There are several LEGO forums available on the internet if I may suggest (they might even have pictures). Have fun.

I've been a fan for many years, all the way back til we saw her first on children-TV talking about becoming world #1 and all, I just thought she cool. So, yes, I have read most of bad press she has gotten trough the years, like, maybe she had top 100 potential, she was laught at, some of the critics made a laugh and mockery of hers socalled 'home made' shots (backhand fx.) etc. So, Caroline the villain?

:eek: I'd say she ranks right up there. Not only with tennis villains, like Marcello Rios and Liezel Huber, but with all-time villains (real and fictional), like Ivan Drago and possibly even Stalin. :scared: No offense to Russians intended.

Caro is loathed by her fellow tourmates. She probably only has about 20 good friends on tour. She's detested by all the fans she takes pictures with. I assume she is not terribly liked by her scores of sponsors, who keep throwing money at her. :eek:

Nah, not really. Tennis isn't my world. In fact it's a pretty minor part of my life because I have more to care about so I don't get pissy when Sharapova loses. I know she sucks right now and that Caroline is playing better than her, doesn't make me any less of a fan of Sharapova. I've just never liked Wozniacki's game or her personality, it doesn't mean I "absolutely detest her". That would be simply ridiculous because I've never met the girl. :) If anything I admire her. During the 2009 Doha Championships she was a real fighter and kept fighting despite all the injuries and cramps etc. However, I still don't like her game.

Funny, from your previous message I really got the impression that tennis is more than just a pretty "minor" part of your life. And the way you just casually rifled the words boring and dull to describe her, just because she is the antithesis of the plethora of "power-ballbasher-bitches" on tour is unfair IMHO. You said you do not know her personally to even detest(I'm sorry, I admit it is too strong a word) her then why would you jump to the conclusion that she lacks personality?:confused: It's a little mind-boggling to be honest.

Maybe tennis is really a big part of your life, more than you like to admit, and you are just saying that just so you could keep your hands clean because a passionate Caro fan like me dared to call you out. But hey, whatever you say, it is the internet after all.

She's no villain. Everyone here just wants to portray her as a villain in their own minds because Caroline is better/more consistent than their own favorites.

She's a nice girl, supports the tour, has tons of good friends on the tour, and for fuck's sake... her nickname is fucking SUNSHINE.

Does anyone know of a villain with blonde hair, a cute smile, a giggly personality and the nickname Sunshine? No.

Most members of this board are just blinded by shallow hatred.

I don't think so :)

I hate to bring this thread back up, but the bit I bolded is something I want to touch on. Wozniacki is the only player I can remember since Davenport in the early 90's to be so doubted while she rose through the ranks. I doubted her, for f*** sake, and I count myself as a fan. Even when she was winning junior titles, it really just looked like she had a typical junior-champ game: retrieve, retrieve, retrieve, and make the other less-capable girls mess up. That has not traditionally translated to WTA success; Kateryna Bondarenko, Kirsten Flipkens, Angie Widjaja, Lourdes Lino, Barbora Strycova... the list of Junior champions who haven't made much of an impact at the WTA level goes on and on.

And frankly, Wozniacki used to look like the next in that line. As a junior, she didn't have something that really stood out, like Radwanska who had unusual touch for a 16 year old or Azarenka who had unusual power for a 16 year old. But in spite of a lot of doubt, she's kept on getting better, and she's kept on improving. That's a scary thought, if you ask me; as of today, it takes a pretty special day from a very good player to beat Wozniacki on any surface, and she's still improving a lot of areas of her game. She's always going to be most comfortable defensively, but imagine what she'll look like in two years (God willing she doesn't get injured) and think about that.

I'm not saying it's going to be a better tour (without the Williams sisters, it probably won't be) but Wozniacki has, at the moment, poised herself as the logical successor to the throne of most dominant player on tour, and when the really good slam-champions (Clijsters, Venus, Serena) are gone, who does anyone see stopping Wozniacki from scooping up titles left, right, and center? She's already beating up on just about everyone else, with her losses being bigger news than her title wins. She's made the final in what, the past 6 out of 8 events? That's the kind of week-in, week-out consistency that NOBODY has had since Henin in 2007. The fact that someone who has been consistently under-rated and under-valued as a potential top player is doing it should be something we admire, not something we mock.

I say good on her for all the work she has put in to get here, and good on her for keeping at it. She's the kind of player I tell my kids to admire.

How is Caroline a villain? I would have thought to the WTA Tour she was a heroine, as she is the only top player who puts 100% effort into winning non-slam events these days. Has she ever been bitchy about other players? I remember years ago when she was a junior she had problems with her temper on court and umpires but that seems far in the past. Let's face it, Caroline is a such a good egg that she made a special journey to LA to visit the stricken Serena when she was at Indian Wells, which was clearly well out of her way.

Caroline's only crime is to be a slamless no 1 and to have a game that is good but not enthralling to watch. It's hardly Milady de Winter or Cruella de Vil territory. :lol:

It was a very nice gesture indeed.
However, she had to film that Compeed commercial in LA and most players land in that city before driving or taking off to Palm Springs. ;)

As for the villain thing, what's about that? She's as vile as a 5 years old selling lemonade.

Anyway, I really could not care less about what you do, I mean, you could be an undercover MI5 agent, Philip Treacy or Kate Middleton for all I care but it still wouldn't change the fact that I was just defending Wozniacki, and that has nothing to do with your pre-occupation in life, whatever that is.

I don't think she's bad at all. Really, in absence of Serena and Kim someone else needed to come forward, and it just happens that Caroline is the most consistent of the rest. If you need to blame someone for her being number one, you should blame those who are unable/unwilling to defeat/compete with her. I do think her game is boring, but my frustration with it is more directed to those players who seem unable to counter it. Caroline does what she does, and it is working. It is up to the rest to figure her out and put her down.
