Nor should you. I really hope that Caroline can win some slams but until she does in most people's minds she will never really be considered one of the top players. January (and the Australian Open) can not come fast enough.

Well I actually think no matter how well she plays now, the AO is not the best slam for her. The surface suits more the powerful players and since it's so early in the season Caroline often lacks enough matches. As wee see now she's more dangerous when she's playing tons of Tournaments. And I'm sure Serena wants to prove that she's the real number 1 and if she's determined she'll kick Caro's ass. Not sure though about Roland garros, she could grab the title there.

I don't necessarily think that Caroline will win in Australia but I do think she can make a deep run and hopefully get to the quarters and/or semis. Traditionally it has probably been the slam where she performs the worst and I expect her to do fairly well there this year.

If you look at her previous years, she pretty much doesn't get going before March .. Whatever the reason, its not good when one of the slams are in January and obviously something her team must be pondering how to change.

Safina had on her ranking
W - Rome, Madrid, Montreal, LA
F - Aussie Open, Roland Garros, Olympics
SF - Wimbledon, US Open.

Jankovic had on her ranking
W - Rome, Beijing, Stuttgart, Moscow
F - US Open, Miami
SF - Australian Open, Roland Garros, YEC

Wozniacki has on her ranking
W - Montreal, New Haven, Tokyo
F - Indian Wells
SF - US Open


Safina beat Henin, Venus, Clijsters.
Jankovic beat Serena, Venus.
Caroline beat none of the above.

Jankovic and Safina earned their #1's with great playing on the tour AND at the slams. Wozniacki is picking off the weak tour events without the Big 4, only ONE Slam SF.

If you look at her previous years, she pretty much doesn't get going before March .. Whatever the reason, its not good when one of the slams are in January and obviously something her team must be pondering how to change.

True enough but before this week Caroline had never won a match in Tokyo and she ended up winning the tournament. I'm glad she did but I wasn't expecting her to do so well. I figured that if she won 2-3 matches it would be an improvement and that would be enough. She also hasn't usually finished the year strongly and (fingers crossed) she is poised to do so this year. As I said, I do not think she will win the Australian Open next year but I do think she can have a deep run.

Really, I would like to see her play a slightly lighter schedule and put more of her energy into doing well at the slams. That is one change her team could make that would (hopefully) result in a positive outcome. The one criticism of her that I kind of agree with is that she is piling on the points more due to quantity than quality. She's still very young so maybe her body can take the heavy schedule but I think she would be more likely to do well in the slams if she played slightly less tennis.

Hello Down, nice to meet you!

Yes agree on Tokyo. I saw some comments that she doesnt actually like playing in Asia that much (even of course I believe her first WTA title was in Osaka, which she does like to play hehe). Also the court in Tokyo is on the fast side for her liking, still as you say, girl won it all :worship: and I too am crossing my fingers for a strong final run at Beijing and especially YEC.

She'll be restricted to 2 Int. again in 2011. Probably Sweden and Copenhagen. She'll play Sydney ahead of AO. Hopefully have a better run at RG and not play the week before! Likely play Eastbourne ahead of SW19 (there really isnt any other good choice and Eastbourne is one of my personal fave tournaments - so no moaning from me :) ). As for US HC, its gonna be the same as this year; IMO. She'll play Toronto and Cincy and if NH is still on schedule - if they find a new sponsor, she'll play that too. Nomatter how 'crazy' it may seem to many people. I just cannot see Caro not play NH if its there.

Hello, it is nice to be met.

Honestly I haven't really gone through her schedule and picked out which tournaments I think she should sit out, and I don't think she needs to make drastic changes, but I do think that a slightly lighter schedule might give her a better chance to do well in the tier one events and the majors, especially now that she is going deep in many events. On the other hand I guess I should be happy that she is not playing in Moscow. As far as I know Beijing is her last tournament before the YEC so she should be well rested.

She is comparable to Hingis 2001. Or Jankovic 2008. No question about it. the most glaring similarity is not only no-punch, significantly defensive, very much maneuvering game, but that she is also very good on all surfaces, but she is truly great on none of them. ( that's what truly separates her from Clijsters - that Clijsters does have that perfected surface - American hard - on which she is better than anyone, and on which every single her achievement happened ). Caro has no such surface, that's why she can do well on statistics, but on each surface there are plenty of players whose best easily beats Caro's best, and chances are, that will be happening at every GS tournament.

Another way to look at it : Wozniacki will probably finish the year as the n1.She'll have (the year is not finished, so she can still improve though):

W - Ponte Vedra, Copenhagen, Montreal, New H., Tokyo
F - Indian W.
SF - USO, Charleston
QF - FO, Miami, Warsaw
R16 - AO, Wimbledon, Dubai, Rome, Cincinatti, Stuttgart

Top10 wins : Radwanska (#8)x2, Schiavone (#7), Dementieva (#10).None in slams.



In comparison, JJ was the YE n1 in 2008 (almost 1000pts ahead of Ree who played 13 events that year)with :

W - Rome, Beijing, Stuttgart (i), Moscow
F - Miami, USO
SF - AO, Dubai, Indian W., FO, Los Angeles, YEC
QF - Tokyo, Montreal, Doha, Berlin*
R16 - Wimbledon

*she had a bunch of others QF (like Charleston or Olympics)but I only put 17 results.

Top10 wins : Serena (#7), Chakvetadze (#6), Venus (#9), Dementieva (#6), Zvonareva (#9)x3, Kuznetsova (#7)x2, Dementieva (#4), Venus (#8), Ivanovic (#4).
2 wins in slams : Serena at AO and Dementieva at USO


Wozniacki lost in slams to Li, Kvitova, Schiavone (future winner)and Zvonareva
JJ lost to : Sharapova, Ivanovic, Serena (all future winners)and Tanasugarn in Wimbly

Personnally I see some little differences here...

OK, well that's definitely a more impressive year than Caro's then :)

Well that's why she didn't end 2008 as #1 and JJ did. :p

I think with each year, every player is becoming more vulnerable and you can't really lock anyone in for a title save for Serena at Wimbledon. Like we've been seeing very few people win more than about 3 titles a year, so Caroline has done pretty well for herself with 5, and probably deserves the #1 ranking if she continues in her current form.
