Yeah, they just showed a close-up on the Olympic stream. Pure dirt and looked quite bumpy ... you could also see, Yanina got a really bad bounce on the ball, which sat up Caro's 2nd BP in last game ... anywhere near the baseline and it's *guess the bounce*

Caro wins 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 after 2h29m. A very good match and lots of respect to Wickmayer but her walkabout in the beginning of set 3 ended up costing her the match.
This was Caro's fifth 3-setter in a row! We don't get as many wins as the two previous years but we sure get a high match time average.
Hantuchova next. Caro's 3-1 H2H but Dani won their last match (FO 11). This is their first grass match and I like Caro's chances here a little better than on red clay.

Edit: Only 5 breaks in 28 games (17%). A small number of breaks is usually a sign of high level tennis from both players

WD Caro. On holiday just for today today and was actually able to see her match. She closed it out. I've actually seen a match of hers live.Wasn't great for my nerves - particularly that game on her serve she eventually won in the 3rd set after was it 10 GPs and was it 7/8 BPs where she was 40-0 up and served 3 DFs - the first at 40-0.

But I'm so very happy now.

Unfortunately, I could only watch a small part of the match, but I am glad Caroline gets the win :clap2: :bounce: Well done girl.

I knew she would be challenged by Wickmayer, especially on grass, so that's a good win. Next match will be tough as well. Hope she can get her third win in a row, but that's quite plausible.

From what I could see, Caroline was still playing too passively and too short in some games but she also showed more aggression. At times she was playing really well. That's good for her confidence :yeah:

Nice reaction from Wickmayer at the net. Thanks girl :hug:

I thought so too and I watched the whole match. Yanina was playing well at the end. Any points that started neutral after the fitst few shots - I thought Yanina was more likely to win the point because she would more likely take control and Caro would often give her a shorter ball that Yanina would take control with. But as you also say - there were some great points that Caro played.

Caro's forehand did look especially weak to me. I know it's always been a weakness but it just looked even more vulnerable than I remember. She definitely needs to get that forehand deep or angled or it is very vulnerable.

The other thing I thought was Caro made some clever serves, She got quite a few aces even serving wide on Yanina forehand. Not fast but swinging out. They all seemed to be on the really big critical "had to win" points too.

That's a key part from Caroline's game. And not only for her forehand. By hitting deep on the court, or by creating angles, Caroline puts some real pressure on her opponent. That puts her rival in an uncomfortable position where she'll have a lot of difficulties to hit clean winners. And it opens the court for Caroline, allowing her to hit some winners. IMO, the difference between victory and defeat for Caroline often lies in her willingness to play deep.

And I agree with you about her service. She used it most efficiently in crucial moments. It might have saved her match today.

Centre Court
Start: 12:00
Women's Singles - 3rd Round Serena WILLIAMS (USA) [4] V Vera ZVONAREVA (RUS) [13]
Men's Singles - 3rd Round Lleyton HEWITT (AUS) V Novak DJOKOVIC (SRB) [2]
Men's Singles - 3rd Round Marcos BAGHDATIS (CYP) V Andy MURRAY (GBR) [3]
Women's Singles - 3rd Round Daniela HANTUCHOVA (SVK) V Caroline WOZNIACKI (DEN) [8]

The organizers seem determined to keep Caro on CC! It might actually be a small advantage for our girl. Every court plays a little differently and by now Caro should be well acquainted with CC, unlike Dani.

Edit: With Murray playing the match before, the stands should be full for Caro's match, unless the crowd leaves when AM is finished.

You're the last person from whom I would have expected such a comment. I guess we all have a part of darkness :devil: :lol:

Personally, I don't care where she plays, as long as she wins.

I guess playing recurrently on the same court could help her but ultimately, it's the way she'll be playing that will determine whether she'll win against Hantuchova or not. Caroline knows how she must play to beat the Slovak. She did it three times already.

She's immensly popular in England. In the tabloids quite often. People know her and they've taken her as half British - because of Rory too of course and they know what they get - good matches. I'm not surprised that ITF has placed her there - and we love it :):):):) I see it as a sort of payback for what she's done for tennis. But in other forums fans are not amused and use a lot of time argueing against her - and she has no influence - well I hope she'll win so we can see her and Serena on cc could be fun.
