Just about any good shotmaker could take out Sunshine in the 1R. A puffballer like Dulko, clever though as she is - no chance.

Sunshine will not provide Dulko with any pace to divert/work with; I dont see Gisela pulling an upset.

Unless Caro is way off, she should win. Dulko can make her run, & Caro's good at that.

Pretty much.

Think of that horrific performance against Radwanska after taking out Justine last year.

Hoping Caro can show some good form, build some confidence against Gisela. Dulko's had some sweet wins in Slams, but they've been against big hitters who were having off days. Caroline wont make loose errors (unless she plays horrible) and she doesn't have that type of pace. I'm hoping for 6-3 6-2 Caroline. She NEEDS some good wins here.

hurricanejeanne
Jan 13th, 2011, 11:31 PM
Dulko totally can win this match but a lot of it depends on how Caro's playing and whether or no Dulko takes the initiative. Caro won't give Dulko the pace she likes.

Caro in three, but it wouldn't surprise me Dulko wins.

Lose vs Belgian player career first GS final

This isn't the first time they are playing each other in the first round at the AO. They met in 2008 with Caro smashing Gise 61 61.

I don't think it's gonna be that score but I see Caro winning in straights.

So Caro is going to reach two more slam finals soon, win the latter, then fall out of the top 50 and make a partial comeback to notability?

Jan 14th, 2011, 04:25 AM
God, the ignorance around here :rolleyes:. At least read the couple of sensible posts saying why Dulko does not stand a chance. She capitalized on off days for big hitters (although Azarenka's shots looked like cream puffs at RG last year) to cause her famous upsets of Sharapova, Azarenka and Ballbashtine. Give her zero pace and she looks clueless. Remember her losing to Scheepers aafter beating Azarenka :tape: ?

It would be quite a story if #1 lost her 1st match again.
But Caro had match point in Thailand v Kim, & beat Li in Hong Kong, so I expect her to be ready & play well.

As usual Gisela will win this 1ST ROUND and then loose.

Caro only loses to ballbashes playing clean tennis. Dulko's game of variety and good touch wont hurt Caroline.

Perhaps not, but Caro is 0-3 against Martinez Sanchez and Dulko's game shares some of the same characteristics (not many but some).

This one, Groth, Kim, those are high profile R1 matches.

Just about any good shotmaker could take out Sunshine in the 1R. A puffballer like Dulko, clever though as she is - no chance.
True. But doesn't Wozniacki tend to show her limited, seldom-appearing, more offensive side against these types of puffballers? Dulko is a good defender so she could lure Woz into mistakes.

I will vote Wozniacki in 3.

Gisela the chance of your life to finally reveal to the world how overrated this Caro Dane is (...) Please in 2.

Jan 14th, 2011, 08:56 PM
Gise will probably do as she normallly does, beat the better player and then lose to some nobody in next round. But yes think Dulko will win this in 3 :)

Temperenka
Jan 14th, 2011, 09:08 PM
While I don't think this will be a great tournament for Caroline... I doubt she will go down in the first round. Gisela is a good match-up for her and Caroline has proven to be fairly good under pressure. I expect Caroline to at least make the third round.

goldenlox
Jan 14th, 2011, 09:20 PM
Caro has to get to Henin for it to be an okay tournament. If she gets past that, its a good tournament. She's #1 in the world. Draws like this shouldn't stop her until she faces other #1's, like Henin, or at least other YEC players.
