Jelena sucks.

:lol:
Yes, I think this match is a huge test for Jelena - if she loses, no matter if it's due to overall poor play or some :weirdo: choke, I'm afraid it'll mean she's completely lost the plot and will never return to any remotely relevant level of play/ state of mind. I've been suspicious ever since her last year's RG SF performance, but this kind of loss would extinguish my last flicker of hope. :tears:

Agreed. Never pick up a racket again.

Caroline--congratulations on your consistency and win today.

Wozniacki was the better player from 3-4 down in the 1st set. Went for more, had a better attitude and defended better.

JJ just was plain lazy when leading, missing routine volleys and losing serve without any pressure on her.

This.

Gifting that 4-5 game n the first set with the missed gimme volley and the overhead were typical of her performance. She should have won this in two. Performances like this is why she won't win the Fremch Open, even though on paper she should stand a very good chance with today's field. :help:

Not very good match. :( Neither of them played particularly well. Jelena practically gifted the first set to Wozz. It was confidence issue, I guess. Jelena needs to learn better volleys and dropshots.

Both players had very negative ratio between winners and UEs.

In my view, Wozniackiīs matches against Zahlavova - Strycova and Wickmayer were far more enjoyable.

BartoLiNa
Apr 9th, 2011, 07:04 PM
An embarrassingly bad match for two top ten players. Jankovic used to be such a good clay court player but this performance was so beneath her. She had no motivation whatsoever. The fact that she won 8 games playing like total crap speaks volumes for the quality of the match.

Caro was solid when she needed to be and played the big points better, as she always does. Woz outplayed Jankovic, and on her worst surface too. The crowd should ask for a refund.

I'm so glad I watched the fantastic Begu/Kuznetsova match earlier today or else I may have lost a lot of faith in women's tennis.

This is worse than any of 179 losses to bayb Anci or 235 chokes to Henin. This kind of loss to this kind of opponent can only mean that Jelena has never been and will never be able to recover to the confidence loss 2009 brought her. I can't see her as anything but a journeywoman from now on. Watching her play like this is so heart-breaking I can't even find the right words. The sadness is so overwhelming, I don't even feel my usual disgust at Wozniacki...
Goodbye, JJ. You were a wonderful player once and maybe one day will again appear someone like you. :sad::sad::sad:

P.S. Woztards, don't get too cocky, even you expected Jj to win because you do know she's a class above the Golden one.

No one :weirdo: Everybody slides on clay, there's no choice :lol: It's the technique of sliding She's not an efficient slider on clay, if you watch her she slides AFTER the shot, not into the shot making her lose time which is so crucial to her game, which is responsible for a lot of her losses in big matches on clay.

JJ 21-40, sunshine 10-21 for winner UE ratio

really ugly match overall

Fun match to watch though; if you like weird errors, patchy play and extended rallies. ;)

Jelena lost to her on clay? How astonishing!

Throughout she looked bored of tennis in general. Some of her errors, especially at the net...shocking.

As much as I am pretty open minded and like to listen to Wozniacki fans usually, I'm afraid this time Jankovic has no excuses for losing to such an ungraceful opponent on clay. If a single Wozniacki fan suggests she did anything special to win, it will be worrying. Jankovic's errors, and horrible demeanour lost her this.

I really am disgusted with her. This should have been 5-1 in the H2H. Pathetic :o

And now I'm going to get pissed obviously, and dance the night away to forget about this one. But at least I have an excuse unlike other Saturday nights :rolleyes:

Baaaaad loss for Jelena.She fought well in the 2nd set but other than that it was :o
I don't know if it's cause of their last match but she lost the confidence she usually had against Woz.She still has the game to dominated her but she must get that confidence back.The countless easy last shots she threw away (generally on a drive volley but even her overheads, which are generally among the best, were tentative today)really killed her.
Even if it was a frustrating match to watch, there was some great rallies at times.Just sad Jelena didn't bring something else today.

Yes, it felt like Wozniacki was more aggressive, and JJ's winners either came when they did not matter i.e. early in games she lost, or came after a great deal of effort.

PLus, JJ just spends too much time after every shot watching to see if it lands out or not. Constantly just lofting up balls she has a good play on. That's why she kept losing points she was controlling.

Set point down in the 1st set..she just hit a smash into the net. Why do all these chicks just forget to THINK when they're playing Caro?

You guys who are not very good friends with tennis think that Wozniacki is a pusher, she has no big shot etc, but you seem to be forgetting some serious element of tennis that Wozniacki is owning whole tour with. It is called anticipation. Yes. She has been reading Jankovic like an open book today, always been few steps ahead. Especially on clay it is valuable when you have a couple of extra fractions of second to think. She may have no Janka's great sliding, she may not have a big weapon in your understanding, but she's got something equally valuable: her head, ablity to read the game better than everyone.

It was a high quality match. Yet Jelena made more mistakes. And she was perfection in years gone buy on that account.

All credit to Woz.
Bad luck for JJ.
To me it means that Wozniacki, slowly, slowly is sorting these girls out. Slowly slotting them in their rightful places. Sad to say it, today she's placed JJ in her slot as well.

This was a very winnable match for Jelena.

But what was she doing at net? She was so consistently miserable from up at net. Some crucial easy misses on volleys and overheads at key moments in this match. Exemplified by the overhead in the net on set point in the first set and backhand volley long on match point. She had the right game plan but she simply couldn't execute under pressure.

Thx for embarassing tennis and your fanbase once more JJ :weirdo: I can understand that training all your life just to play such a boring, uninspiring and useless player like WoZzZzZz on center court, especially late in one's career and in a not so important tournament, brings no motivation and fire in a player, but seriously you shouldn't even need that to beat a player like her :weirdo:. Gifted the entire match from A to Z, hopefully you can deduct that from your taxes JJ claiming it was for a useless charitable cause. That's what empresses and celebrities do, no? Just ask them to deduct the F - SF prizemoney, so this ridiculous waste of time was worth something in the end.

I hope one day Woz wakes up and realizes how she's destroying the sport with her uninspiring play, her boring personality, the fact the tennis players won't even try to achieve excellency when training to become a pro going the easy way if the model themselves after her. But given how she and her father go about things this will never happen anyway. So the only thing we can hope for is that a lot of girls see Woz and get angry at the state of the game and develop a strong desire to rectify things... fighting for the game of tennis trying to share all the beautiful things and moments it is capable of giving us fans.

Wozniacki can play well on clay. Most of her problems were taking short balls and net play.

But anyone who watched the match can tell that this was Jankovic somewhere near her worst.
Wozniacki wasn't even hitting the ball that well herself either.
With even a half-baked strategy executed with any kind of competency, Jankovic would have taken this match...

It shows that it is not a very good stats come from both players. But still there are some entertaining points. It is unusual to see JJ hurried off to finish up lots of points which ended up being an UEs. Caroline, despite her long spent time on court, is quite fit and confidently built a solid effective ground strokes. Moreover, it seems her stamina still maintains its respective level.

I will say Woz has a big shot to win Charleston, but has to see how Peng is today, to be wholly confident.

I will say Woz has a big shot to win Charleston, but has to see how Peng is today, to be wholly confident.

Yup, this was pretty much the final.

Weaponless Peng and headcase Vesnina don't have much of a shot, unfortunately.

Wozniacki was the far better player, so she won :wavey:

Wow, you can sense people's emotions through what they type? That way you can use your trolling abilities to full efficiency.

Both were terrible today, but Wozniacki was less bad.

Do you know why the WTA is in such a rut? Because viewers have to go through shit matches like these. The match was only entertaining because it was so bad, you were kept in suspense if JJ would even try to hold serve, or if she would miss a stupid sitter. There is a reason that ATP is 219312312031x better than the WTA.\, and the gap is only getting wider and wider.

Idiotic thread title.

Great match, some amazing rallies. Loved it wholeheartedly.:drool:

You guys who are not very good friends with tennis think that Wozniacki is a pusher, she has no big shot etc, but you seem to be forgetting some serious element of tennis that Wozniacki is owning whole tour with. It is called anticipation. Yes. She has been reading Jankovic like an open book today, always been few steps ahead. Especially on clay it is valuable when you have a couple of extra fractions of second to think. She may have no Janka's great sliding, she may not have a big weapon in your understanding, but she's got something equally valuable: her head, ablity to read the game better than everyone.

Well done, Caroline. Very well done, girl.:worship:

Yes, she has a great anticipation, but when the other player has a short ball to put away, she often moves to one side pretty early, so theoretically it should be quite easy for the other player to hit the ball to the other side where the space is open. Just watch Federer, Nadal or Djokovic (or any top male player): they do that all the time. I donīt get it why it is seemingly such a difficult thing for female players to do?

amc987
Apr 9th, 2011, 07:21 PM
UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I just can't deal with the WTA any more.:facepalm:

It's not even that Woz is that bad. She would probably be top 10 even if the Williams sisters weren't injured, Clijsters showed up to play outside of slams, Henin hadn't retired, Sharapova played like her old self, etc. She's solid, and she competes well.

But she's also not very good. For all of her consistency, she's really just a high class pusher with serious holes in her game. She can't really be aggressive, her forehand is suspect, her serve is weak, her net game is almost non-existent. Her movement is even problematic on clay. And yet she manages to beat all these clowns with her epic retrieving. Time after time she's on the edge of a precipice (in both sets against Strycova, in the 2nd and 3rd sets against Wickmayer and in both sets today against JJ), and none of her opponents seem to take advantage. It's like they're saying, here Caroline, let me not even make you earn the points. Why don't I double fault, or miss easy volleys or make routine errors off of your weak serve. Someone should've sent the Great Wall of Denmark back to Europe already. The fact that no one has been able to just shows how terrible the WTA is now. It's embarrassing.:o

The longer this charade goes on, and the more tournaments she wins (regardless of how weak the draws are or how poorly she plays en route), the more people are going to start talking about how she might be a legitimate #1 after all. :rolleyes: Seriously, if she goes through Wimbledon winning all these WTA events because her opponents go walkabout and gift her with boatloads of errors, people might start talking about her dominating the tour. And God help us all if this level of play helps her win a slam... she'd be the Pusher Queen and women's tennis would have reached a new low.:help:

This match was abysmal quality, just look at the stats. First set, no one held serve, JJ with 6-22 winner UE ratio, second set was better with some exciting rallies but ridiculous errors from both and especially from JJ who missed a bunch of sitters and overall 30 winners to 60 unforced errors in this match. And both of these players at net? Don't even get me started.

If you think Caroline played very well during this match, you are mistaken because I know she is capable of more. JJ was terrible.

This doesnīt even concern Wozniacki. Wozniacki made a mistake playing Charleston, because she is already looking a bit tired (more mentally) and also a bit uncomfortable on clay. Even Djokovic is taking a break and doesnīt play Monte Carlo, but Caro has to play this MM tournament?

Thx for embarassing tennis and your fanbase once more JJ :weirdo: I can understand that training all your life just to play such a boring, uninspiring and useless player like WoZzZzZz on center court, especially late in one's career and in a not so important tournament, brings no motivation and fire in a player, but seriously you shouldn't even need that to beat a player like her :weirdo:. Gifted the entire match from A to Z, hopefully you can deduct that from your taxes JJ claiming it was for a useless charitable cause. That's what empresses and celebrities do, no? Just ask them to deduct the F - SF prizemoney, so this ridiculous waste of time was worth something in the end.

I hope one day Woz wakes up and realizes how she's destroying the sport with her uninspiring play, her boring personality, the fact the tennis players won't even try to achieve excellency when training to become a pro going the easy way if the model themselves after her. But given how she and her father go about things this will never happen anyway. So the only thing we can hope for is that a lot of girls see Woz and get angry at the state of the game and develop a strong desire to rectify things... fighting for the game of tennis trying to share all the beautiful things and moments it is capable of giving us fans.

Her anticipation today was indeed remarkable and whittled away at the confidence of an already weak-minded Jankovic.

But anyone who watched the match can tell that this was Jankovic somewhere near her worst.
Wozniacki wasn't even hitting the ball that well herself either.
With even a half-baked strategy executed with any kind of competency, Jankovic would have taken this match...

I think what i'm most sad about is seeing how jelena's game is now.

-she has zero confidence
-she's missing sitters
-volleys/overheads non-existent
-dropshot..., no comment
-she's playing it save, she's not going for her shots. What happened to the risky backhands DTL?

But most of all:
-Drive volleys: What happened to the drive volleys.. Her drive volleys lack any sort of power these days and just give opponents more time to hit a shot.
-Angles: Her shots are not moving people around like they used to either, how many times did she hit short angled shots? 2 or 3 times? the times she did she won the point..
-Court sense? She was never a master tactician but still... Why can no one understand they shouldn't hit finishing shots to caroline's backhand side... Jelena wrongfooted caro 3 times in 2 hours? I just wish i saw her executing a winning gameplan.

I can't see her as anything but a journeywoman from now on. Watching her play like this is so heart-breaking I can't even find the right words. The sadness is so overwhelming, I don't even feel my usual disgust at Wozniacki...

As for the general media liking her? They don't. What they like is the fact that Woz says yes to practically every interview and event... and is all fake and :) look "I am so easy to work with", no matter how boring she is. And that for these people who are bored of asking the same questions over and over makes things easier for them somewhat. They're still bored by her though, just don't have to work as hard as usually to get the good stuff and settle for the mediocre stuff, cause sometimes they work hard and get the same answers anyways.

If you think Caroline played very well during this match, you are mistaken because I know she is capable of more. JJ was terrible.

Exciting? Maybe. High quality? No.
She played well enough to win a random Tier II tourney match. Of courst, she's capable of more, but the girl in her 20 years appears to be as mature as those few great champs left on tour. She is just simply winning matches. HC - check, clay - check...

I never said high quality, I said great. And it was great to me, synonym to exciting could well be. Some of the angles were crazy! The way they dealt with the wind also requires mentioning! Great match, all in all.

Wow, you can sense people's emotions through what they type? That way you can use your trolling abilities to full efficiency.

It's really not that hard to judge now is it? Opinions on the match that are no relation to reality, insults and scorn, and prophet like predictions state of the WTA coffers.

I quit TF :hysteric:

Have fun on MTF... :wavey:

Both were terrible today, but Wozniacki was less bad.

Do you know why the WTA is in such a rut? Because viewers have to go through shit matches like these. The match was only entertaining because it was so bad, you were kept in suspense if JJ would even try to hold serve, or if she would miss a stupid sitter. There is a reason that ATP is 219312312031x better than the WTA.\, and the gap is only getting wider and wider.

The crowd loved the match... :)

For the first clay of the year, and transition tournament, its warming up nicely game by game. :)

Yes, she has a great anticipation, but when the other player has a short ball to put away, she often moves to one side pretty early, so theoretically it should be quite easy for the other player to hit the ball to the other side where the space is open. Just watch Federer, Nadal or Djokovic (or any top male player): they do that all the time. I donīt get it why it is seemingly such a difficult thing for female players to do?

It may have something to do with the fact that men are substantially stronger, they are much more able to make controlled shots out of timing, and therefore more incline to make last second ajustments

Caroline has improved. The players know it. Jankovic knows she cant win baseline rallies against her for 3 hours.
The haters think Caroline has no game and you have to stink to lose to her.

Still.. what do i need to do to see a damn slice on a claycourt? Is there any topplayer who can use a slice these days? I thought i couldn't miss justine any more then i already did but with the claycourt season coming up i kinda feel a depression coming up. :o

Thx for embarassing tennis and your fanbase once more JJ :weirdo: I can understand that training all your life just to play such a boring, uninspiring and useless player like WoZzZzZz on center court, especially late in one's career and in a not so important tournament, brings no motivation and fire in a player, but seriously you shouldn't even need that to beat a player like her :weirdo:. Gifted the entire match from A to Z, hopefully you can deduct that from your taxes JJ claiming it was for a useless charitable cause. That's what empresses and celebrities do, no? Just ask them to deduct the F - SF prizemoney, so this ridiculous waste of time was worth something in the end.

I hope one day Woz wakes up and realizes how she's destroying the sport with her uninspiring play, her boring personality, the fact the tennis players won't even try to achieve excellency when training to become a pro going the easy way if the model themselves after her. But given how she and her father go about things this will never happen anyway. So the only thing we can hope for is that a lot of girls see Woz and get angry at the state of the game and develop a strong desire to rectify things... fighting for the game of tennis trying to share all the beautiful things and moments it is capable of giving us fans.

I think you should stick this nauseating sentimental drivel up you rectify. Did you even see the match??

What you write has got bugger all to do with tennis, its a diatribe telling us about your parallel world.

Both girls tried there best, it was a pretty even match with some long rallies which the crowd seemd to cheer, and as it turned out CW managed to come out the winner.

WD Caro. Both Caro and JJ played some amazing points. As far as everyone here saying it was pathetic - this is at complete odds with Jo Durie and Simon Reed's assessment. And both players were moving the other around all the time.

And JJ is far from finished or an embarrassment. I find her fans an ambarrassment now. Any other player - she'd have beaten. She'll be back and I think she'd have got this title if it wasn't for being up against Caro.

But most posters in GM said JJ would win easily. Laughed at the bookies odds and thought that they knew better than the people who if they set tthe wrong odds lose money. And they still don't get it that Caro is difficult to beat and think it's easy.

The commentators talked about Caro's anticipation. That's why there were some really long rallies that JJ didn't win or won when she'd have won the point several shots earlier against anyone else. She's got her mind on where Caro is moving, that this is the 3rd time she's got to put away a point. And that's why all players don't win every rally they control against Caro.

I'll take professional commentators, what the professional players themselves say, my own eyes watching the match, bookies who set odds to make money rather than idiots on these boards who don't seem to have any understanding about what it takes to win. Have an appalling track record in their predictions. And can only come up with every single player is an idiot if they lose to Caro.

Match after match she usually wins and she is the #1 on results. It's not easy to beat her and yet still GM posters defy logic and think it is.

The first set was a very messy afair with 7 breaks in 10 games! The only reasonable explanation is nerves caused by great mutual respect. In set 2 the quality improved but neither player was fully confident to really go for her shots. Caro won most of the long rallies so JJ tried to shorten the points by going for more but missed too often.
Caro was the better player today though she was far from her best. JJ regressed to her level of play from last half of 2010 after promising play the last 2 months. I hope for her it was just a one match glitch (like Caro's match against Petkovic) and she'll play close to her best again soon.

UGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I just can't deal with the WTA any more.:facepalm:

It's not even that Woz is that bad. She would probably be top 10 even if the Williams sisters weren't injured, Clijsters showed up to play outside of slams, Henin hadn't retired, Sharapova played like her old self, etc. She's solid, and she competes well.

But she's also not very good. For all of her consistency, she's really just a high class pusher with serious holes in her game. She can't really be aggressive, her forehand is suspect, her serve is weak, her net game is almost non-existent. Her movement is even problematic on clay. And yet she manages to beat all these clowns with her epic retrieving. Time after time she's on the edge of a precipice (in both sets against Strycova, in the 2nd and 3rd sets against Wickmayer and in both sets today against JJ), and none of her opponents seem to take advantage. It's like they're saying, here Caroline, let me not even make you earn the points. Why don't I double fault, or miss easy volleys or make routine errors off of your weak serve. Someone should've sent the Great Wall of Denmark back to Europe already. The fact that no one has been able to just shows how terrible the WTA is now. It's embarrassing.:o

The longer this charade goes on, and the more tournaments she wins (regardless of how weak the draws are or how poorly she plays en route), the more people are going to start talking about how she might be a legitimate #1 after all. :rolleyes: Seriously, if she goes through Wimbledon winning all these WTA events because her opponents go walkabout and gift her with boatloads of errors, people might start talking about her dominating the tour. And God help us all if this level of play helps her win a slam... she'd be the Pusher Queen and women's tennis would have reached a new low.:help:

You're right and you did good to cite Federer... anybody can take videotapes of him to watch how he deals with balls in the forthcourt on his FH side... he always waits a slight second before he hits to see exactly where his opponent is or where his opponent is heading to...

In girl's tennis and this was particularly visible with Wickmayer... as soon as they get the short balls they just rush like stupid dumbs obnubilated at crushing the ball more than placement or variety... just anywhere... any how... stupid much.

Woz knows the habits of these brainless so she just needs to anticipate there... one thing girls never do is hit strong down the middle... Nadal does that often too...

I agree 100% apart from two points.

1) Luckily it wasn't Simon 'Murray is too intelligent to need a coach' Reed today w/Jo and

Oh, you seem to think that WTA = WozZzz. No Sir, the only thing we can't bother with is WOzzzZzzz and top players off form or injured. Not the WTA in its entirety. Because we care about the game (thus don't like WozZzz) and not just her being Polish, Danish or a secure source of getting many titles or wins. We care about the quality and the excitement the game can bring forth and that's the main difference.

Seriously... Let me make an example. I don't like Caro and neither do I like Serena. But when Serena hits some crazy shot you can't help but go :speakles: at times even though you don't support her at all. She creates buzz and has a genuine personality and a real game that inspires people (even though she doesn't even use her full technique due to her knees and her upper body strength anymore!) This just simply doesn't happen with WozzZZzz. The usual reaction is: omg, how did that get in :facepalm:, or: another misshit or poorly hit shot got her the point :facepalm: or: seriously? you wouldn't even miss that against Henin for God's sake.

And that's about it.

I do realize that everyone has a different taste, but when all the things that are beautiful about tennis suffer, because of a player that goes against all that... you simply can't sit there and accept it.

1) Tennis thrives on personalities: Caro has no personality..
2) Tennis thrives on wowing the crowds with shots you wouldn't even imagine are possible: Caro can't do that.
3) Tennis is like a form of art: Caro paints the same boring picture over and over again using her big, forgiving rackets and her soft and mediocre strings to "brush" the ball like some failed artist .
4) Tennis has become more athletic lately requiring much more speed and strength, but even there where Caro is supposed to be at her best, we can't really learn proper tennis footwork that is graceful and textbook.
5) Tennis is supposed to allow you to express yourself and play your own individual style... Yet hers is so not memorable. If you step on the court and hit a shot a certain way and your friend tells you "LOL at that lassu forehand are you Rafa or what?"...Caro won't ever be mentionned, because nothing that she does inspires. Virtually NOTHING.

No it wasnīt. Jankovic was on the way to recovery. Even in her losses to Wozniacki, Pavlyuchenkova and Zvonareva in the desert she played better than when she won Indian Wells in 2010, BUT then Ivanovic happened and it is back to sucking. Those are the signs of a mentally toasted player. One match (and a very high quality match for 1 1/2 sets) shouldnīt de-rail you like that.

If I had to do it in order

With respect to their tennis abilities, they are about the same right now. But Wozniacki is certainly the more self-confident player right now and she has the "aura" of being No. 1. I mean, if Wozniacki played at the same level as she did yesterday and was ranked - say - no. 4 instead of no. 1, Wickmayer would have probably won that match in two sets.

Watching where, how... before you hit the ball in transition to the forecourt isn't even technique just common sense... another one... girls don't even realize how far behind Caro is often when they're coming to the net to pass under the ball...

Sigh. When they still do realize it they yet have the ought to miss as tragically as JJ has done time and time in this match... just clueless in every means.

I love girl's tennis, I've been stuck into it for 5yrs. but I wouldn't advise a newbie to engage himself/herself as a fan... too much to endure.

Men's tennis is so over women's right now this unrecuperable unless some Federer just appears as like a miracle on the WTA tour just like he appeared in ATP to crush the useless mugs Roddick & co...

I don't think the WTA is dying, and I actually like Wozniacki. But this was a bad match, at times laughably so. If you think it was a high quality match then you don't have a different opinion, you are just wrong. Sorry :shrug:I have yet to see a thread in GM after a Wozniacki win where she wasnt treated like this.
She never gets any credit from haters. So, screw them.

Hehe, that was when she got crushed 2 rounds later, isn't it? :lol:

So true, that bitch thought she was going to win the title just because she beat Shoulderpova:rolleyes: so glad Zvo took her out.

Oh, you seem to think that WTA = WozZzz. No Sir, the only thing we can't bother with is WOzzzZzzz and top players off form or injured. Not the WTA in its entirety. Because we care about the game (thus don't like WozZzz) and not just her being Polish, Danish or a secure source of getting many titles or wins. We care about the quality and the excitement the game can bring forth and that's the main difference.

Seriously... Let me make an example. I don't like Caro and neither do I like Serena. But when Serena hits some crazy shot you can't help but go :speakles: at times even though you don't support her at all. She creates buzz and has a genuine personality and a real game that inspires people (even though she doesn't even use her full technique due to her knees and her upper body strength anymore!) This just simply doesn't happen with WozzZZzz. The usual reaction is: omg, how did that get in :facepalm:, or: another misshit or poorly hit shot got her the point :facepalm: or: seriously? you wouldn't even miss that against Henin for God's sake.

And that's about it.

I do realize that everyone has a different taste, but when all the things that are beautiful about tennis suffer, because of a player that goes against all that... you simply can't sit there and accept it.

1) Tennis thrives on personalities: Caro has no personality..
2) Tennis thrives on wowing the crowds with shots you wouldn't even imagine are possible: Caro can't do that.
3) Tennis is like a form of art: Caro paints the same boring picture over and over again using her big, forgiving rackets and her soft and mediocre strings to "brush" the ball like some failed artist .
4) Tennis has become more athletic lately requiring much more speed and strength, but even there where Caro is supposed to be at her best, we can't really learn proper tennis footwork that is graceful and textbook.
5) Tennis is supposed to allow you to express yourself and play your own individual style... Yet hers is so not memorable. If you step on the court and hit a shot a certain way and your friend tells you "LOL at that lassu forehand are you Rafa or what?"...Caro won't ever be mentionned, because nothing that she does inspires. Virtually NOTHING.

Who are you to speak on behalf of the media and tennis fans in general? :lol: You seem to be confused, tennis is not a movie or a concert, it is a GAME. The aim of the game is to win by any fair means necessary, which is what Caro has been doing, and will be doing for many years to come. If you can't handle who the top women's tennis player is, then I suggest you go and follow something else, and be entertained elsewhere.

Delighted for Caro! :D Yet another title coming up hopefully :dance: And I have to laugh at JJ fans :lol: Having a breakdown over this loss, yet losing to Diyas or Amanmuradova is somehow ok :spit:

Yeah, it certainly wasnīt a good match, just see the ratio between winners and unenforced errors by both players. A few good rallies here and there, but too many horrible errors and so much clumsiness at the net.

I couldn't watch after the first set and all the goddamn breaks. What happened to holding serve with authority or at least faking it?

Anyways, today's match showed just how much Jelena's game has lost its spark. She used to win matches like this a few years ago. Woz will win the finals, probably win one of the events in Europe and be the "big favorite" for the French Open title in which she will win and thus be annoited the gREATesT plAyER oF aLl tIME!!1111111

I admit I was looking forward to this match and expecting something great so maybe that's why I was left so disappointed. But I am honestly baffled when I see people saying it was a great match. I mean, really?

Nope, that's not exactly what happened. 100-200 bitches on TF were expecting Maria to beat the useless pusher, but as it is turning out they cannot yet forgive the best players in the world for hurting their fave.:baby:

Indeed...and this is something the fanboys won't ever get. Caroline SHOULD be able to play more inspiring tennis...she's a big girl. why is she insisting to play this passive mode?! So uninspiring?

Yeah just take that ball by Peng. She hits a ball smack on the baseline from right behind the net, could easily have been out instead. If she just dropped it off short against the foot it would have been dead on the ground before Vesnina could have touched it. It really is something that should come naturally to a world class tennis player, to any tennis player. Itīs the easier shot. Wrong foot, short, dead. No she plays it baseline long into Vesninaīs direction. Itīs 2cm longer, itīs out. Itīs 20 cm shorter, Vesnina has a play on the ball. :help:

.....

I'll take professional commentators, what the professional players themselves say, my own eyes watching the match, bookies who set odds to make money rather than idiots on these boards who don't seem to have any understanding about what it takes to win. Have an appalling track record in their predictions. And can only come up with every single player is an idiot if they lose to Caro.

Match after match she usually wins and she is the #1 on results. It's not easy to beat her and yet still GM posters defy logic and think it is.

a bit harsh on everyone.
basically you can't blame them on what they wished.
Clearly most wished wizniacki to lose.
Nothing wrong "conceptully" with that.
I think most people get it that Wozniacki as #1 is here to stay ... no probs ... but they are not saying it!

Good. No I do not that WTA = WozZzz. Just as I don't believe you are really interested in tennis by what you write here, but then you might be nice to old ladies for all I know, so I give you the benefit of the doubt but I come here to be entertained and you are not entertaining.

I only watched the last 10 minutes of this match but according to the Eurosport commentators it was a solid match and once again they talked about what a great representative Caroline is for the sport. But of course everything said here on TS is always going to be in diametrical opposition to the real world... nothing new there :D

Hate litte hater, hate :lol:

I'm not saying that Caroline doesn't have positive qualities. She's consistent. She competes extremely well. She's very mentally tough. You have to beat her. Kudos to her for having improved as much as she has. She's obviously a nice girl. I don't think anything in my post suggested that she was a poor representative for the sport.

That said, I don't think it makes me a hater to point out that she has serious holes in her game. Serve is a mess. Forehand is a mess. She can't really be aggressive, and on big points she is more than content to push the ball back and wait for her opponent to miss. I already stated the obvious fact that Caroline would still be a top 10 player even if the WTA were stronger. I'm saying that the fact that she's been able to be as successful as she has--notwithstanding her performances at the Grand Slams-- is more an illustration of the low level of the tour than her brilliance as a player. Apart from Jankovic, she's probably the weakest #1 we've had in a long time. When was the last time we had a #1 player who played this defensively, had no real weapons to speak of, wasn't a tactical genius, and won as much as Caroline does?:confused:Despite her shortcomings, she's pretty far ahead on points, she continues to go deep in the draws of most regular tour events she enters, and she doesn't lose that often.

I find it frustrating (and even mind-boggling) that more players aren't able to exposes her weaknesses on a consistent basis. You're welcome to disagree. But don't accuse me of being petty for pointing out that her level isn't as high as it should be considering what she's already achieved.
