View Full Version : Karolina: "The young generation is deep. Serena will be challenged."

Miami - World number one Caroline Wozniacki said Tuesday that a tennis return for recovering Serena Williams would be good for the sport - but warned that the new generation has already staked a claim on the top of the game.

Serena has achieved so much (13 Grand Slams) that I'd also like to achieve. said the 20-year-old world number one Dane in the run-up to her second-round start at the Miami Masters. 'But for Serena, getting fit again is the most important thing.

I considered her a friend, but we have a good younger generation coming up, the competition is very deep now. Serena will have a good challenge.


The 30-year-old younger Williams sister is still recovering from surgery in February to remove a blood clot in her lungs and has no timetable set for a return to the sport after last playing nine months ago at Wimbledon. Her elder sister Venus also pulled from Miami with a longstanding abdominal injury.

The pair consider the tournament their home event and have won eight of the past 13 women's title between them, with Serena claiming five during a seven-year run.

Wozniacki visited Williams in Los Angeles earlier in the month and has spoken to the American in recent days. I wish her well and hope she comes back soon. said the Indian Wells champion who claimed six trophies in 2010 and two so far in 2011.

Wozniacki, who receives a bye in the first round like the other 31 women's seeds at the dual-sex event, again disputed criticism that holding the top ranking without having won a Grand Slam is somehow shameful for the sport.

I want to be number one and win a Grand Slam. When you're young you think of being number one, you don't know yet what those Grand Slams mean or how important they are.

I've reached one of my goals and now I'm going after my other said Wozniacki.

The Dane said that she feels she has the game to eventually break through into the ranks of Grand Slam champions. I have a lot of weapons, offensive and defensive. You don't win big events without them.

A Grand Slam title for me is hopefully just a matter of time. I'm on the right way.

Women's play was getting underway Tuesday with men due to start their event on Wednesday.

Serena's losses since Jan 2009 -

Dementieva (x3), Venus Williams, Patty Schnyder, Klara Zakapalova, Francesca Schiavone, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Kim Clijsters, Nadia Petrova (x2), Jelena Jankovic, Samantha Stosur (2), Sybille Bammer, Victoria Azarenka.

The younger generation has certainly showed promise against her and will make it tough for her :yeah:

Caro is still looking for her first. But some people feel that once she wins 1, more are coming

That may be true Caroline but facts are facts, Serena healthy and playing is still 50% better than u in all aspects of the game. Deal with it. And as for the " rest" of her generation... Don't make me laugh... None are better than either sister. Good luck with that.

She was being nice... I mean she isn't even close to winning back to back majors and yet she is making claims she will be winning 13 grand slam titles !!! Jesus is this girl on crack? I'm sorry but her game does not impress me. True she's better than before but ... Her rivals are mostly inferior and the whole tour has gone down a level or two in my opinion ... Maybe not as a whole but certainly amongst the top ten there is no one player that makes me think " wow your a champion" those days are over .... So sad

I'm not sure how accurate this quote is as there is no link to a source but assuming the quote is correct here is what she said:

Serena has achieved so much (13 Grand Slams) that I'd also like to achieve.

She would like to achieve what Serena has achieved (winning 13 grand slams). She did not say she will win 13 slams. Yeah, she must be on crack, what player would want to win thirteen slams? Next time please read more carefully before jumping to conclusions that are not supported by the facts.

If Serena returns to competition in condition to challenge top 20 players (which I'm almost certain she won't) you can be sure that Wozniacka will do everything in her power to dodge her.

Like you I am also very much inclinded to doubt that Serena is going to be able to return at the level she was prior her foot injury of last year. She will be almost 30 years old, an age when it it extremely rare to remain at a level where one is winning Grand Slams and will have had numerous physical issues to overcome.

If however Serena is able to overcome all her physical obstacles and somehow manage to recapture the level she was in during the brief periods she was healthy in 2010, then 1st and foremost, that would be one of the most remarkable sporting comebacks ever, certainly one that would greatly enhance Serena's already outstanding legacy in the sport. However under such circumstances, I don't see any way that Wozniacki would avoid facing Serena, short of not playing the big events Serena chooses to play, and as Wozniacki has never had a reputation or history of avoiding big events or pulling out of such events I don't see any reason to expect that to happen.

If Serena Williams does return to the game at the level she was at during Wimbledon 2010, I would expect her to beat Wozniacki on the occasions they played each other in Grand Slams, outside of Grand Slams, I would be less sure. But I don't see Wozniacki running away from that challenge should this happen.

Excellent so if Serena Williams dominates when she returns it won't mean much. Not much to crow about in anyone being able to win over inferior players.

But I don't see Wozniacki running away from that challenge should this happen.

Assume Serena is back and return to somehow her level:
a) on grass she'll beat Caro;
b) Everywhere else it depends--in finals and SF, bet on Serena. In R1-4, bet on Caro.

Scenario (b) is what will make it interesting. It means for some time, it is likely the two may meet way before the final stage of events. One can extend this theory to the other "topper" youngsters who used to meet Serena at later stages of events. Therefore for a period, Serena may be more vulnerable than it should be.

But honestly I think Caro, Kim, and the other tennis stars really should hire better script writers.

Serena always has been challenged. Rarely has she been BEATEN. When these girls can prove that they can beat Serena on the big stage, then she'll have an argument. Serena's greatest strength is her MIND - doesn't matter how much or how little she plays, she believes that she can go out there and still win matches. The other girls don't feel that way. Tennis is 80% mental 20% ability.

i don't think that's true. Serena has a lot of weapons with which to break out of a tight spot with. It looks like her opponents are choking but in reality Serena usually ups her game with some great serving and big shots. I mean in 2006 even notorious choker Hantuchova was able to beat Serena because Serena's game was so poor. Serena will have to be in some kind of form to be able to beat the top players no matter how mentally tough she is. Though at this point I'll just be glad if Serena comes back b4 the year is over.

I dont think Caro had any other choice but to say the younger generation is deep because she is a spokes person for the WTA Tour. She cant go and say that the top 10 is going backwards with the Williams sisters, Henin and Dementieva not around that would be shooting the WTA in the foot. The truth is there is not alot of top 10 talent as we have known in the past out there.

Woz is right. There are a lot of young players. :) And Serena will be challenged, no doubt. That happens when you are out for almost a year. But I think Serena will make a big push to get a couple more slams before retirement and then Woz can hoover up the slams when Clijsters retires.

If only Pavs had the desire to get into the top ten. :rolleyes:

It's hard to blast her for stating the obvious.

When has it not been a challenge for Serena? Her 13 haven't been effortless. She's put in work and faced down better than the likes of Woz'.

Though it is stating the obvious and virtually anyone could have done it, Woz' is barely worthy of the comment - No slams and, what, like one tier 1? Good Lawd! why would anyone listen to anything she's got to say about what it's going to take for a 13 time slam winner, greatest of her generation to do what she needs to do?

The one thing I found amusing and worth the read was that she said she had plenty of offensive weapons. :lol:

Lol the "young" generation are a bunch of cheap WS imitations and thats one reason why the games is such a mess all the girls have tried to mold their games into the WS play but none of them are close to athletically gifted as either sister so we get all these as i said cheap imitations with much more errors and less winners.

Starting to prepare an excuse for if it doesn't happen as you predict :lol: And no-one is saying it's deeper than when Serena last played. All we are saying is it's deep and that Serena is likely to find it challenging when she returns.

This script has been written numerous times over the years from active to retired players to writers, to TF posers about Serena. She's overcome each death knell in some way. The hope here is that when Serena does hang it up, it's on her terms. Nothing wrong with that. History is on her side anyways.

Serena has been challenged in every generation and overcame some pretty tough battles. The field was much deeper then and even though Serena didn't win every battle she won a lot of important ones.

Caroline needs to stay in her lane. For her to even mention anything related to Serena's status when she hasn't won a slam is ridiculous. Maybe she should worry about being Kim and Vera's bitch instead of what Serena's going to have to do with her game when she comes back.

Everybody knows it's not going to be a smooth ride for Serena. She hasn't played professional competitive tennis in nearly a year. The younger generation is weak as hell, I don't even know what this chick is talking about.:lol:

I really wonder if such a sudden, dramatic and widespread dip in the quality of young players - and which is certain to go on, and become worse, over the next few years as Generation Wack and Generation Slut seem very likely to follow the precedent set by Generation Suck - has any precedent in any other sport.

I hope La Broz is right about "Serena will be challenged" part.

Serena is always challenged. She rises above each time.

The young generation is in deep shit. Serena will be considered mentally challenged if she dooesn't slay them all

We make observations related to Serena's status 24/7 and I don't think many of us have won slams.

That's because we're not playing the game :angel:
If we were to go by your opinion, only Steffi should make those observations then.

It's pretty obvious that I mean the opposite of what you're suggesting, but never mind...;)

That's just so wrong! :haha: :haha:
However, I think that she'll eventually grab that coveted slam in 2013.

But when will the other players step up to the plate? I think this is the question.
