It depends on the draw, she will be number 5 seed right? So there is potential for her to meet some dangerous players who can take her out even in the 2nd round; a 4R would be a good result. A 4R at Miami would be a great result with that stacked field.

IMO it's way to early to forecast the outcome and I would wait until the draw will come out. However, if seeds will advance, Julia Görges is one possible opponent of "Ms. Sunshine" in R4.

Um, no, back-to-back 4th rounds is NOT a good result for a top 5 player :lol:

Caroline Wozniacki is predicted to be # 4 seed; as every seed will meet up with an unseeded player in R2, I don't see the impact of the number of her seeding to her first opponent.

Wozniacki's last 2 results in Mandatories doesn't exceed the 3rd. round -- that's about as far as where she could get with the confidence on which riding right now.

With this result (140 points) she could be 6 or something, bye bye #1 for good I guess.

She's really struggling with her form right now , but having said that , this year she's still only lost matches to players she has historically struggled against even when playing well (not counting the half-tank in the 3rd set to A-Rad in Sydney) in the shape of Kvitova, Clijsters, Safarova and Goerges. Who knows whether her form will worsen or not , but I'd like to think that she can at least beat players she draws in the 1st 2 matches providing she doesn't have a history of coming up short against them more often than not.

If she can lose to Safarova or Goerges on hardcourts, she can lose to any top 30 player. You could make an argument that virtually any top 30 player is a 'historically bad match-up' for her if Safarova is.

I thought you guys were blaming that loss on injury? :scratch:

Safarova is extremely dangerous the one or two times a year she actually plays well.

Maybe a R3 or something, she won't be going far that's obvious.

A tank because she didn't want to aggravate the injury ;)

I may be wrong and I don't want to take the win way from Aga but after 2-2 in the third you could visibly tell that Caroline just was not putting the effort in. But meh, Safarova and Goerges aren't that useless on hard courts, especially seeing as though Goerges almost beat Caro the last time they met on one , leading 5-3 in the third set and then also in the tiebreak before a terrible line call.

I do take into account Wozniacki's losses to Pennetta and Kanepi last year but come on, let us Woz fans have our optimism, it's the only thing we have right now :kiss: :sobbing:

I don't think that she will win but she will take advantage of her top 4 seeding. I expect her to get to the semis.
The surface and atmosphere is good for her counter punching game.
The great thing for her is that a good majority of the players that can beat her day in and day out have difficulty with the conditions at Indian Wells.
Azarenka plays better at Miami. Clijsters plays better at Indian Wells but she won't be playing.
In fact with this generation of players, I don't think we'll be seeing many even having a good shot at winning the Indian Wells-Miami double.

If she does better than a semis, she should be happy for the result.
A semis will likely have her down to 6 in the rankings by the time that Miami starts. If she doesn't gain any points at Miami, expect Wozniacki to be a 6 or 7 seed for the French Open.

Semis. There's too many upsets in this tournament for Wozniacki to have a dangerous draw so she's going to get out of her quarter regardless of her draw IMO. I hope her superior in that semi will be Vizieress Vika. :devil:

The worrying thing is that this is on hardcourts, her best surface. What can we expect of the clayseason in the shape she´s in. :help:

It took the overpowering play of Georges, Sharapova, and Hantuchova to beat her on clay.

The players who have won at the French Open the last three years, Li Na, Schiavone, and Kuznetsova, won with an all court game.
You can't consistently win big tournis on clay by just playing from the baseline.

I was hoping that Wozniacki would play more doubles this year but in the last 18 months she's played in Copenhagen and the Hopman Cup.

She's not going to get too far in Miami, it would be a good idea to play doubles with someone who is accomplished at doubles (Martinez Sanchez perhaps).

Wozniacki reminds me of this generation's Sanchez Vicario. Why she doesn't play more doubles to become a complete player is beyond me.
The least she can do is get fitter because she's going to need it. That's what helped Capriati win the French in 2001.

The way she has been playing recently... there is truely no telling. She could bomb out in her first match or she could win the title.... very difficult to be sure of. The one thing she needs to worry about more than any of these random non-slam tournaments is getting the f*ck away from her father... his influence is corrupting and defeating to her confidence, and thus form.

I dont know what's going on. She served for the match against Aga in Sydney. Had 3 match points against Safarova.
If she's going to fold with a win so close, she could lose to 30 or 40 players.

On the positive side, this has been a good tournament for her. So whatever her best is this spring, you'll probably see it here.
It would be a common sense spot for her to get back in form. Or continue losing when she gets in a tight situation.
I dont know which, but she has to work it all out, just like everyone else who slumps
She had made 15 semis in 19 tournaments before Wimbledon. From Wimbledon on, only 3 semis, and in her last 13 tournaments, New Haven was her only final. Thats after 17 titles in a few years.

You need to stop thinking this is a slump. The borderline-top 10 level she's been at for the last 6 months is probably going to be her average level for the rest of her career; it was her results in the summer 2010-spring 2011 period that was the anomaly, not what's happening now.

Of course, myself and many others were warning you nearly a year ago that this exact thing would happen if she didn't seal the deal at a Slam in 2011, that the rest of the field would smell blood and gain confidence they could beat her, but of course you chose to seek comfort in the illusory "statistics" that showed Woz was the best player of her generation (as much of a faraway land as that now seems), or that everything would be alright once she got back onto hardcourts :lol:
