for the lucky ones who got to seecaroline on the tv, what kind of potential, game and talent does she have?

I think she can go far. I don't see too many obvious weaknesses. She hits hard, runs very fast, volleys aren't too bad, and she's quite smart. Caroline was hitting the ball hard but she was thinking very well at the same time. Sweet girl too.

i think she's good for her age. naturally, she doesn't hit as hard as the top players, but that will come with time.

her backhand today was def top 10 material.

i think Caro has a very bright future. but i think she needs to drive through her forehand more and her service toss is a little high. but she has a very very solid game.

i hope I get to see Caroline on the tv in indian wells and maybe Miami. Actually I saw caroline once on television and that was when she won the junior title at Wimbledon

She was very good actually. Her serve needs some work I thought but then she used it very effectively in this match. She also moves very well and seems like a very nice girl. Hopefully she will stay that way when IMG gets ahold of her and turns her into the next Stepford Tennis Wife. That being said Akiko played a horrible match. She just seemed a bit out of sorts. Congrats Caroline, you will definitely go far

Haha. I love that serve. :hearts: It seemed to have worked to her advantage today.

To me, she came across as a young(er) Vaidisova with a dash of Dementieva in her. She has a nice backhand DTL , is a pretty good mover, and her forehand was pretty decent. I like that she came to net on short balls, and she didn't choke while trying to serve the match out. However, that skyscrapper ball toss could be a cause of concern in the future.:D

Waaaaaaaaaaaay back... And then Kenneth Carlsen and Kristian Pless:haha:
On the female site, Eva Dyrbjerg did quite ok, reached top 100 I think, but decided to focus on studies instead...

Caro:bounce::worship::)

Tine Scheuer-Larsen with a highest ranking of 34 in '86
Eva Dyrberg reached a high of 77 before focusing on her medical studies.

btw. Kenneth is often ridiculed (esp in DK) but has won three ATP titles a lot of players would give their arm for that ;)

I could definitely see this girl actually passing by the others ahead of her in the next 3-5 years.

She moves better already than Ivanovic and Vaidisova and her only real weaknesses are an iffy forehand and not-to-deep a second serve (although she had excellent placement today)

Denmark may finally have there first potential top-ranked player someday.

Well he loses a lot of matches ;) (he has the world record for most first round defeats in Grand Slams).
People don't realise what hard work it actually requires to be able to fight through very long periods with injuries and achieve a ranking that enables you to enter the Slams.

Probably has something to do with Denmark being one of the best badminton nations for many many years. The public that don't follow sports as much perhaps find it strange that we can bring home major titles every year in one racket sport but not another.

Another reason is that Kenneth for many years always said that he was sure he could get to the top 10 soon, even when he was struggling to stay inside the top 100 ;)
