View Full Version : CBS Hartnett: Wozniacki Beats Sharapova in USO'11 Final, First Of Many GS To Come

I confess I have never heard of this writer, but since CBS will be the american network showing USO on weekends, he must have have some credentials.


He believes this win by Carol will open the floodgate of many more GS to come; which is good news for Caro fans everywhere

He also takes a passing dig at Kvitova, questioning her mobility and ability to defend while contrasting her with Caro, and adding "she leans heavily on her power game and isn’t very agile."


I am sure many of you will strongly disagree, knock yourself out.




After Kim Clijsters pulled out of the U.S. Open (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/08/19/stomach-injury-forces-defending-champ-kim-clijsters-out-of-us-open/) due to a lingering muscle strain, competition became a lot fiercer. Without the back-to-back champion and three-time winning Belgian as favorite, there are plenty of contenders who are gunning for the title.


2009 U.S. Open runner-up Caroline Wozniacki currently holds the No. 1 position (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/08/25/liguori-us-open-seeding-controversy-for-the-williams-sisters/) in the WTA Rankings. The 21-year-old Dane suffered disappointing exits in this year’s Australian and French Opens but was able to win five other singles titles in 2011. She has been long-tipped to win a major and Flushing Meadows could be the venue where Wozniacki makes good on her promising potential and finally collects a major title.


Vera Zvonareva reached last year’s U.S. Open Final where she was easily beaten by Clijsters after only an hour of play. The 26-year old Russian will be looking to return to the final stage and continue her success on hard courts. Along with reaching the 2010 U.S. Open Final, she reached the semifinals at the 2011 Australian Open and 2011 Cincinnati Masters.


Maria Sharapova won the Cincinnati Masters three days ago and is hoping that her momentum from winning the hard court event will translate in U.S. Open play.
Sharapova won at Flushing Meadows in 2006 but hasn’t made it beyond the fourth round since.
That’s where she lost out to Wozniacki in last year’s tournament. Hard courts traditionally favor speedier athletes but winning in Cincinnati proves that Sharapova is capable of performing on any surface


Serena Williams is determined to make a strong push (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/08/01/serena-williams-ready-to-take-on-us-open-captures-1st-title-in-comeback/) after suffering from various injuries and medical problems.
A toe injury forced Williams to withdraw from the Cincinnati Masters before sound round play.
Serena is a three-time U.S. Open winner with her most recent title in 2008.
Her 28th seeding at this year’s U.S. Open (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2011/08/23/three-time-champion-serena-williams-seeded-28th-at-us-open/) means that she will face a top-seeded favorite early in the tournament. That could either work in her favor by allowing her to knock out one of the contenders or lead to an early exit.


Li Na has a track record of performing well in majors and has plays with more power than her 5’7” frame would suggest. Na won this year’s French Open and finished runner-up at the 2011 Australian Open. She seems to have an innate ability to handle pressure and play her best tennis when her back is against the wall.


26-year old Serbian Jelana Jankovic finished runner-up in Cincinnati and could be considered an outside favorite. Similar to Wozniacki and Zvonareva, Jankovic relies on her mobility and counter-punching abilities. The same can’t be said about 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova who leans heavily on her power game and isn’t very agile.


Who would I back to make this year’s U.S. Open finals? It depends on how the brackets are drawn of course. My two tournament favorites would be Sharapova and Wozniacki. It’s always hard to count out Sharapova because of her mental strength and powerful game. She has enough speed to compensate on hard courts as shown in Cincinnati. Her intimidating style of play and power makes it difficult for smaller foes like Wozniacki.

I can only pick one winner and I’m going to go with Wozniacki. She was able to defeat Sharapova in the fourth round last year but lost out to Zvonareva in the semifinals. The courts at Flushing Meadows favor her game and it seems inevitable that her time will soon come to dominate women’s tennis. Taking the 2011 U.S. Open may be the first of Wozniacki’s numerous major triumphs to come.

To me, Wozniacki is becoming to slams what Kournikova was to tournaments.

She doesn't win them because she doesn't win them, not because she isn't good enough to. I'm not going to consider her a favorite to win a slam until she proves to me she CAN win one.

However Kournikova did bring excitement to the game, especially to hormone raging teenagers everywhere while losing.
She did have flashes of brilliance, she could not just string together 2 6-games sets in match.

But that is a side note.


In my OP, I said I was not going to question this guy credibility, but I am tempted to change my mind now.
Just take the last few outings Caro had, her game seems to have taken few steps back.
She lost power on her shots, sending to many puffy floater in the service box.


So I am not sure what Mr Hartnett has been watching to come to this bold prediction

Everybody is entitled to their opinion. Though I don't agree with his analysis. I give him credit for going out on a limb. At least he tried (though many of you will call him crazy, or think he don't know tennis in the first place).

Now calling Sharapova speedy, claiming Petra isn't agile (especially after calling Sharapova speedy, just cause she backed into a hard court win), and picking Wozniaki to win the whole thing, I'm sure would strike many of us as him not knowing a damn thing (or actually watching any tennis lately). SMH. Lol

I'm sure Petra must of looked slow and out of sync in Toronto or Cincy, if he saw her there, indeed. Hopefully he knew that was her lack of timing. But even if he didn't; Monica Seles (and others like her on hardcourts) won the Australian Open multiple times, and she was slow as hell. But Hey (shrugs)!

Woz winning her inaugural, then multiple championships at this US Open, is a whole nother matter! SMH. Lol.

It's not happening this year, I don't think we need to argue about that. Winning her first slam is a huge task and she's not doing it while being in a transition-period game wise.

But she's setting herself up to be a multiple slam winner and sheŽll reap the fruits of that later. I do believe that the first one is the hardest and once that pressure of proving everyone wrong is off her shoulders, sheŽll win them more routinely. She has already proven how easily she can win titles and in theory it is not that harder to win a slam... it's just all the pressure and the mind games that are in her way until she has the first one in the bag.

How exactly, when her Slam results are going in the wrong direction? If she doesn't atleast make the Final at the US Open next week, or MAYBE a competitve defeat to Serena in the semis, I don't think many people would back her to ever win a Slam. For all her rhetoric that "her time will come", it was in fact her moment this past 12 months with the game in a transitional period, but she was too scared to step up and seize the moment. And for all your insistence that she's still so young, more talented players than Wozniacki have retired having never won Slams.

She's adjusting her game to be more aggressive which is needed to win slams, furthermore she will tweak her scheduling in the coming years towards the slams.

She's doing everything you said she had to do just a month ago...but now that she's doing it, it is of course not good enough for you. Discussions with you are pointless...

Yeah..it's too late...she's 21, her career is over. Seriously, don't you feel silly to say stuff like this? The biggest favorite to win the USO this year is 29, how can it be "too late" for her being 8 years younger? It's absurd...

It's obvious that she is adjusting her game, she's trying to paint the lines more, go for more agressive shots...she had a good net point ratio yesterday, a good amount of winners. If you can't see that youŽre blind, sorry.

There are some tennis writers with positive approach to Caro:eek:. Nice to see. I think she has a pretty good chance of winning it, she is considered to be an underdog and that can actually be an advantage. Last few slams had winners who were not tipped by many fans so she could be the last surprise.

And who had won her first Slam at the age of 17, whereas Wozniacki is 21 and hasn't been to a Slam final in two years despite it being one of the weakest periods in women's tennis history. Again, if she can't do it now, when is she going to do it? In 2-3 years, her great strength (movement) will already be deteriating, as Jankovic's downfall shows.

It's obvious that she is adjusting her game, she's trying to paint the lines more, go for more agressive shots...she had a good net point ratio yesterday, a good amount of winners. If you can't see that youŽre blind, sorry.

Actually, her forehand in particular was landing shorter than ever, and she was taking on short balls even more timidly than usual. She only hit more winners because McHale's strategy yesterday usually resulted in her leaving space wide open for Wozniacka to hit easy winners... I'm pretty sure in tonight's match Wozniacka will hit very few winners (though will probably still win due to Schiavone's errors).

Caroline and Maria might be playing in that New York exhibition.
I remember when Maria turned it down a few years ago

It will be Blonde Night at Madison Square Garden when the World's Most Famous Arena holds its annual tennis event in late February/early March.
The Post has learned Maria Sharapova will headline the BNP Paribas-sponsored event and face the U.S. Open's No. 1 seed, Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.
The men's match, according to a person familiar with the Garden's negotiations, is expected to be Roger Federer vs. Andy Roddick. The renovated Garden has not announced the card.
Last winter, the Garden tennis card went with a old-timer doubleheader: Andre Agassi vs. Pete Sampras and McEnroe vs. Ivan Lendl.

Again I would like to see these so said stats against big hitters... unfortunately her draw in US Open in the early rounds is very weak which doesn't give the opportunity to test that new game.

I think with Dsanders Caro's time is probably over, many girls (power players) have picked up on her bread and butter game - now more than naturally aggressive girl she's going to need more time to find the right balance and in between she's going to have lots of deceptive losses with that style which will inevitably lead to loss of confidence and a Jaja-like sinking tragedy who also remember wanted to become more powerful too.

I think the Jankovic comparison is just so irrelevant , they're completely different situations. Jelena wanted to bulk up so her shots would have more power but as a result of doing this she ended up a step slower and laboured her movement which basically rendered the change pointless. There was a fundamental physical change to Jelena which caused her to go down like she did. Woz is not adding/decreasing anything to her game , she's simply going for her shots more and getting used to a more agressive mindset , there's a difference. But this comparison is often used by her detractors as a moot point who try and illustrate her demise in as many ways as they can :shrug:

Actually, hence the Kournikova comparison. There's no physical reason Wozniacki won't win multiple slams. But then there's her performance in the last seven slams. Average is somewhere between 4r and QF. That's not threatening to win anything. And remember, Schiavone, Kvitova and Li Na all won slams in that period. It's not like Serena and Clijsters were sweeping the field.

Caro by tweaking her game will also have to accept the fact that her future bashing game will not be successful against a certain category of girls anyways those who are naturally better at it than her which can result in huge loss of confidence especially considering that her bread and butter defenses doesn't work in the majors and might certainly not work anymore in casual tournaments thus the comparison to Jankovic breakdown whom seeing the bulking wasn't rendering in terms of results started doubting.

Caro might find herself in the situation where she doesn't know what to do anymore and struggle - as I said it's easy to blow Pennetta, Zvonareva etc ... off courts but the ultimate test in majors will be against girls who do not give up so many ground and really pressures each and every balls.

If we take a comparison to Nadal, the same difficulties appears to him as soon as he meets a dude whose aggression is top notch better than his but on the contrary to him, does she have the heart, determination, will etc... to though out these matches very doubtful seeing her recent outings in majors.

Just because she beat her in R4 last year means she can do it again? Seriously, Maria's courtesy over Caroline is over since Indian Wells. And Caroline has peaked last year where all the vibes were pointed at her favorably to win a grand slam but she came up short every single time. Her biggest chance were US and AUS and she came up short, no excuses. She won't even get pass R4 this year with that form. Her days of low UE and low Winners disappear.

I hope you are not saying Caro finds it easy to blow Zvonareva off the court?

:shrug: It'd be easier to blow a players with a style like Zvonareva off a court even for Wozniacki than it would be against players like Petra or Serena - Zvonareva doesn't hesitate to leave ground to her more offensively skilled opponents to do some defense/counter-punching or perhaps I don't know her game very well... so yes perhaps Caro finds it comfortable to do so, IDK there match ups are weird...

Any ways for me Woz's new offensive game would match well against players close to her style of play (Pennetta, Mc Hale, Zvonareva maybe even Jankovic nowadays) but I'm very doubtful against shotmakers...

Finally someone who talked sense. Caro is definitely the player to beat at the USO.
