Who's gonna beat world # 1 Wozniacki in Wimbledon 2011?

Well, it's not Lisicki in R1 - that's for sure - but great joke :lol: :bounce: :lol:

Maria rocks

Woz will prob make it too the quarters (and hopefully Maria will be there to take her out :devil:) but I give Gajdosova a slight chance.

Gajdosova probably has the earliest chance. If she's playing well, she could take Wozniacki out in straights on grass.

Mirza should first beat Razzano to even have a chance against wozniacki.
I will give Gajdosova a chance. Somebody will stop Caro for sure. She isn't winning this.

Her draw seems fair, no excuse not to get to Maria, but wont be easy.
Then its hardcourt where Caroline has very strong results.

Only Serena, Venus, and Kvitova on form can prevent Wozniacki from winning Wimbledon this year. She is rested, and she comes with WAY LESS pressure than at the French.

She is the best player by a good bit in her top quarter of the day on fast surfaces, making Shriester fans get even more angry that I said that. ;)

Fast surfaces now help her game even more, and with rest, she will be incredibly difficult to beat over the fortnight.

She has to do it. On hardcourt she's done everything but win a slam final.
Grass, clay, she still has to show she is a top 5 contender at majors.
All she needs is 1 really good one, maybe this will be it.

Only players who can move a bit (side to side, or back to front) will beat her on grass.

Parra Santonja isn't your typical Spanish player. She mixes up her stroke speeds well and has some really flat shots (she destroyed Petkovic in Madrid). Given Wozniacki's lack of match play on grass and if she struggles with her depth I think she could be in a wee bit of trouble.

Did you not watch the US Open and Australian Open?

She had big wins at both those tournaments and was certainly a threat in Australian despite a shaky warm up loss to Cibulkova in Sydney. Clearly Top 5 contender material.

I don't think so........Parra Santonja can go off the boil sometimes, and her defense isn't really all that good either. You need both offense and defense to trouble Wozniacki this year on fast surfaces, and I don't think, despite her good talent, Parra Santonja can.

Wozniacki will pass her with the backhand and forehand all day.

You just cant get blown out by a player you are 3-0 against when you have that draw.

Janka has the talent of course, but Wozniacki knows she can still counterpuncher her to death on errors and many others things, as well as take the initiative with a sneaky fast serve, and be optimistic with her backhand.

Anyone who can consistently exploit Wozniacki's weak second serve and forehand CONSISTENTLY. Due to her FH grip, any ball that is coming hard and flat (and on grass it stays low) she can only scoop it up and pat it back, which can make for easy put-aways. Alternatively watch what Kvitova did last year, hit with enough margin and just followed it into the net.

First off, don't tell Jarka her last name is Groth. She'll kill you.

2ND, Maria has a few underrated hurdles to get by in her path. You guys keep putting more pressure on her, and she has never really dealt well with the pressure of expectations when she's a top favorite.

Way different player than last year, where she was still unsure about her injury.

Stronger, more on the baseline, and stepping into her backhand consistently a little better, with an improved serve.

Also, Kvitova is a lot better at this consistently than Gajdasova is.

Her grip hasnt changed from last year, nor has her forehand. The serve in terms of raw pace is also quite similar. Unlike Hardcourts where she can deflect opponent's pace since the ball bounce is higher (even covering her FH liability by rolling it cc with enough spin to create angles) its really difficult to do that on grass where the ball stays low and given her grip her only option is to scoop it up.

I dont know about the injury from last year since she won a tournament immediately after Wimbledon.

Gajdasova cant volley half as well as Kvitova; she cannot use the same tactic as her, but then again I never said that Jarmila will be the one to beat Caro.

You are more than hoping that Wozniacki is a top contender only behind the William sisters. Her second serves are weak and how often does she hit a bh winner down the line enough to give her the advantage on the offensive side? Her puffballs are just looking to be punished as long as these ball bashers as long as they keep their errors to a minimum.

Have you also considered her movement on grass as well? And not to mention her non-existent net game.

You also really overrate her counter punching game, especially on a low bouncing surface like grass where she can't just retrieve the ball and expect to get back into the point. Also, please search up a list of counter punchers, pick out the ones who have made it to the top and watch their matches.

Any ball basher that can keep the ball in will hit Wozniacki off the court. It's not news.

I didn't mean to imply you were the one saying Jarka would win, just addressing all the others who are a-HOPIN and a-PRAYIN.

I think you'll see her go more down the line on the backhand and even forehand this tournament, and come in a bit more. Her serve is at the same pace, but she does a great job nowadays of mixing speed, spots and slice, which will help her on grass this year. She is a very underrated "pitcher" of the ball.

2009 Wozniacki was fun to watch.

But anyways, Wozniacki's offensive game has regressed over the years while her defensive game has significantly improved: true. But defense isn't enough to be a top contender for Wimbledon. Has a counter-puncher ever won Wimbledon? The closest I know of is Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, who is a goddess at counter punching. And then Kim's semi-finals appearances.

The idea that she was a better player 1 year ago when she's got 10 titles the last 12 months beggars belief. Also your claim she was more aggressive 2 years ago is pure nonsense. Here's her last match.

As for the poster(s) who say Caro can't volley. Well she doesn't do it that often - but when she does she's usually very effective. The matches at Eastbourne - in particular both Sam and Serena were making a lot of howlers at the net that Caro very rarely misses nowadays. Sure she's not at the net so often and not a natural volleyer - but she is very effective - see 0.08, 0.10, 1.10, 5.20.

Caro is a contender like a few others are. That's all I'm saying - I don't do predictions. But I'm hoping both Caro and Sharapova make it for a clash though. I think most commentators and experts would like that to happen.

Agreed.

On faster surfaces, it's a terrible matches for Sharapova. Wozniacki can push and push and push her back with angles and step in the court more times than say Jankovic, getting Sharapova from ultra aggressive on offense to desperately in questions defensively.

And she's also, simply, besides being a superior mover, mentally tougher now.

If she doesnt, after her early FO loss, there is reason for concern.

She doesn't miss many nowadays. She's pretty solid. As I said she doesn't naturally go to the net. But the percentage of points and volleys she makes when she does go to the net is very high. This is the biggest area IMO that she's improved on. If I was forced to risk a lot of money and could have any player I wanted to on making reasonable not difficult volleys - particularly after some running around and several rallies - right now I would be more nervous with more natural volleyers Sam or Serena than Caro from their matches I saw.

Gajdosova?! Never fucking heard of her.

And this nobody is supposed to be beat Wozniacki?

Do you watch tennis aside from Caroline's matches? Jarka is very good when she's not missing, but then again, she's very hit-or-miss. She's not gonna be firing consistently through the whole match.

This thread is :lol:, :sad: and :rolleyes: put together. It's fascinating (and rather sad really, but that's human nature for ya) that so many people give the impression that they would be happier with an early loss from Caro or a humiliating defeat against a big name player than with a win of their own fave. As long as they will get the opportunity to make fun of Caroline, much like bullies in school always pick on the same kid, they will love this Wimbledon.

I don't know how far she will get. I'm not one to make bold predictions only to be caught with my pants down my ankles only a few days later. I HOPE that she can make it to the quarter finals. If she then goes out against Sharapova (definitely one of the pre-tournament faves in my opinion) after giving a good account of herself she deserves a pat on the back and a "well done." Anything more than that would make me very happy indeed. But even if she goes out in round one, I know that she will have competed as hard as she can and I ask for nothing more. :hug:

Arantxa can be tricky sometimes! Her serve is pretty good although lacks consistency. She hits hard and flat both sides and her volley is decent.

Mirza in R2 has a great chance
:spit:
Gajdosova probably has the earliest chance. If she's playing well, she could take Wozniacki out in straights on grass.
:spit:
Gajdosova will take her out.
If Gajdosova has a good day Woz will be in real trouble.
Nah, if she gets into trouble she'll complain about calls or get an injury timeout :devil:.
Gajdosova is gonna on in on her wig.
No.
keep on talking out of your ass - this way you'll get embarrassed even more:wavey:
Pushniacki is a toast on grass and everyone knows it
Still angry Wozniacki keeps winning matches, chump? :weirdo:Parra Santonja isn't your typical Spanish player. She mixes up her stroke speeds well and has some really flat shots (she destroyed Petkovic in Madrid). Given Wozniacki's lack of match play on grass and if she struggles with her depth I think she could be in a wee bit of trouble.

True. That girl can hit hard and flat. I hope she'll have a good day. :lick:

but also parra can be dangerous
Who the fuck is this Parra Santonja person? Who the hell? Is she supposed to be a threat? Where is she ranked? Low top 100? Sounds like a scrub, and she's supposedly a threat? Haters clutching at anything thesedays :lol:

Well, let´s see:

Parra-Santoja and Mirza are too inconsistent and erratic to beat her, IMHO.

Jarmila Gajdošová has certainly the game to beat Wozniacki, IMHO, but then again, I thought that she would be able to beat Petkovic at RG and Radwanska in Eastbourne as well ... and guess what happened in the end. :rolleyes: But if Jarka plays well, she should have a decent chance of winning this match.

If Goerges´ performance against Ivanovic in Eastbourne is a valid indication of how well she plays on grass, then she will probably lose before the 4th round. Dominika Cibulková, if she beats Mirjana Lucic, may cause some troubles to Wozniacki as well, since she played very well against Kuznetsova and she is able to play fairly close matches with Wozniacki even on hard which is Wozniacki´s best surface.

Well, I didn't vote, but here is my take on Caro's draw.

APS could be tricky, especially as she has no play on grass yet but she should definitely come through.

Sania should NOT be taken lightly. I don't think grass is her surface but if she plays anywhere near her best, Caro is going to have to play really well to win it.

Domi, Julia, and Jarka could all be challenging too, but I think if Caro wins a few rds, she will be too consistent.

If she faces Maria(1/4's) or Serena(1/2's), she would be the underdog IMO, so just getting to the quarters would be a good if not great achievement and would set Caro up well for her favorite part of the season. GL Caroline!

Spare me the double standards and hypocrisy with this "out of her own hands" that you and others parrot:

Firstly - Any top player on the ATP with a good serve who got 100% 1st serves in would be pretty much unbreakable and unbeatable. That they aren't unbreakable and unbeatable is because they don't get all their 1st serves in. That's out of the other player's hands. Top players hang in there and rely on the purple patch of players with big seerves blowing over all the time. That's "out of their hands".
And even in the WTA - all players rely on getting some 2nd serves. That's "out of their hands".
.
Secondly , in a match between say two attacking players - there's invariably more UEs by both than Caro makes. Suppose the player that loses didn't make those UEs. Are you seriously saying that would never make a difference and that player would still lose. If not and making shots rather than making the UEs would have made a difference - that's "out of the other player's hands".

Thirdly - the out of her hands when she's won 17 titles and 10 this last year is just ridiculous. If it was really all out of her hands - she wouldn't be continuously winning matches and titles.

spare me your educational crap and let's take a look how she plays where it matters - the SLAMS:
Taking into account only the last 4 majors:
She was blown off the court by Kvitova in SW19 without having a single prayer of a chance to do anything on court (apart from hoping that Petra will start missing some time).
Then she took advantage of self-destructing Sharapova in US Open and was once again routined by a non-power player in the semis (blowing the notion that she only loses to "big hitters" at the same time)
At the Aussie Open she was safely cruising to the final untill Li Na woke up and started playing up to her true level (meaning she was once again blown off the court)
And I don't even need to mention her RG performance...

So here you go - she is yet to record a trully impressive win in a slam where her opponent is playing well and is not choking. Now tell me how exactly is she not an opportunist in lower level events where most of the TOP girls are not even playing or playing just half-arsed?

So here you go - she is yet to record a trully impressive win in a slam where her opponent is playing well and is not choking. Now tell me how exactly is she not an opportunist in lower level events where most of the TOP girls are not even playing or playing just half-arsed?
Never occured to you that Wozniacki herself might have choked that US Open and Aus Open semifinals? Or... only the opponents does choke (IF they lose)?:baby:

Jarmila Groth can beat Pushniacki on a good day at Wimbledon.
Only and only if she plays a clever game (i'd be surprised!), controlled agression, consistency from the baseline and good service.
She's capable on a very good day, already enough firepower to overpower her.
But, Pushniacki's consistency and great defence will prevail surely...

Anyway, many can beat her on a goooooooooood day. The problem was, and still is - "good days" are 10 percents of the time, all the rest are - bad days, bad bad days thank to what Wozniacki is number one player of the world.

I don't think so........Parra Santonja can go off the boil sometimes, and her defense isn't really all that good either. You need both offense and defense to trouble Wozniacki this year on fast surfaces, and I don't think, despite her good talent, Parra Santonja can.

Wozniacki will pass her with the backhand and forehand all day.

Not particularly. Stay away from the Wozniacki backhand, and it's highly unlikely she's going to put you on the defence.

Wozniacki has never gotten past the Round of 16 at Wimbledon.
So if she is going to be relevant at Wimbledon over the next decade, its about time she showed it.
Her draw has some flat hitters, but no true contenders until Sharapova, so that's at least how far she should go.

Even if she serves 100%, I think Wozniacki is such a great and smart returner that she will get it back with interest like she did at the US Open and indian Wells, and cause many problems.

Gajdosova is a mental midget, so no way is she beating Woz.

Caro will make it to the QF and no further. The only way Sharapova is losing to her is if she plays like total crap, as she did the other times she lost to her. Given her current form I can't see that happening, especially on grass.
