What a great start of a thread. Caro wins title no. 20 and now she's got five times as many career titles as Stosur who has 4.

Congratulations Caroline. Great match, especially first set and last games.
Not all was perfect, but i'm sure that Caro is definitely on right track. She won three tough matches in a row!
Caro wins 20th WTA Title!!! :bounce: I'm so proud and happy.

The Sofia field should be (not all officially confirmed)

#11 Caroline Wozniacki (Seoul)
#13 Nadia Petrova ('s-Hertogenbosch)
#15 Maria Kirilenko (WC)
#16 Roberta Vinci (Dallas)
#19 Kaia Kanepi (Estoril)
#25 Hsieh Su-Wei (Kuala Lumpur, Guangzhou)
#29 Zheng Jie (Auckland)
#44 Tsvetana Pironkova (WC)

#24 Venus Williams (Luxembourg) is qualified but will be playing exhibition tennis in Africa instead and receives a 0 pointer.
Kanepi is doubtful because of a heel injury. If she won't play, the next in line is #32 Daniela Hantuchova (Pattaya City).

The format is the same as in Istanbul: two groups (Serdika and Sredetz) with four players each, the two highest ranked (Caro and Petrova) in different groups. All players play three matches against the other players in her group. The best two in each group advance to the SF, number one from Serdika facing number two from Sredets and vice versa.
If a player wins all her five matches, she'll earn 375 ranking points.
The tournament is played over six days from October 30 to November 4.

H2H W/L vs Top 20
(caros view) (2012) (2012)

Nadia Petrova 4-1 34-19 6-7
Maria Kirilenko 5-1 32-22 2-11
Roberta Vinci 0-1 42-26 6-7
Kaia Kanepi 4-2 25-9 4-4
Su-Wei Hsieh 2-0 46-18 0-4
Jie Zheng 1-3 27-22 5-8
Tsvetana Pironkova 3-0 19-22 3-8
Daniela Hantuchova 5-1 26-21 5-10



"The surface is manufactured by Play it, and the specific model is called PlayFlex, which will place the court for the Qatar Airways Tournament of Champions in the “medium fast” category according to the ITF standarts."

"This kind of surface is used it the ATP tournaments in Saint Petersburg, Stockholm and Bangkok."

"The official ball of the tournament will be HEAD PRO. The unique rubber mixture increases the endurance of each ball by 33 %. In addition, thanks to the SmartOptik technology the visibility of the ball is raised by 19 %. The HEAD PRO balls are used in the WTA China Open."

So, Kaia was indeed too injured to play and Dani took her place.
I hope Caro will be grouped with Vinci, Zheng and Pironkova. RV and ZJ because Caro has a negative H2H against both of them which need straightening out. And TP, not because she's the lowest ranked, but because Caro hasnt played her for 2½ years. To me it'd simply be more interesting than yet another match against Dani, whom Caro has already played twice this season.
Anyone heard what day the drawing will be done?

I'd rather not have Vinci in her group.. She's had a good season and will prove to be difficult for Caro.
Yeah yeah yeah, Caro needs to be able to beat these people, but she also needs to regain her confidence. Sure the win in Moscow helped, but I still think she needs more wins under her belt.

Group Serdika:
[1] Wozniacki
[4] Vinci
[5] Hsieh
[7] Hantuchova

Group Sredets:
[2] Petrova
[3] Kirilenko
[6] Zheng
[8] Pironkova

Well, I got 1 out 3 wishes: Vinci. A chance for Caro to even that 0-1 H2H from Toronto 11, the start of her downwards slide.
I don't mind Hsieh too much. Caro has only played her once and we couldn't watch that match, so it'll be interesting to see how they match up. I hope Caro wins Sredets and Zheng finishes 2nd in Serdika so they can play in SF.
Dani, sigh. I have nothing against her as a player, but they already played at Olympics and Tokyo, nothing new and interesting about this match-up.

C. W. Fields
Oct 29th, 2012, 05:45 PM
I'm glad Caro gets to play on day 1, that means she'll get a day off during the tournament, hopefully after match 2 or 3. I consider it a significant advantage compared to Petrova and Kirilenko who'll be playing five days in a row if they go all the way.

Peculiar. On the TOC site, Sofia time is the same as CET. But if you check out a site like timeanddate.com, they're one hour ahead of us. I'm more inclined to believe the latter because officially Bulgaria is in a different timezone than us (GMT +2).

Edit: They've removed the clock now and put in advertisements instead.

15:50 Nadia Petrova - Jie Zheng
NB 18:15 Maria Kirilenko - Tsvetana Pironkova

I'm glad Caro is playing the first two days, that means her day off will be in the middle of the tournament (of course that's only an advantage if she advances).

Easy win tonight. The nicest part was how effective Caro was on BPs: 5/5. Late match tomorrow against Vinci who also had an easy win today. Caro no doubt has an extra gear compared to what she needed to show today but I also espect her to need it against the slicing Italian, whom I don't expect to hand Caro the match on a platter like Hsieh did.

I think this is one of the dresses she wore at US Open. I read somewhere that they adjusted the surface to suit Pironkova who is strongest of grass:lol:

Caro wins 3 & 1 in 68 minutes. Good match by Caro. Her top spin shots are better suited to handle low slices than Dani's with her flat shots, like we saw yesterday. It was a fairly close match until Roby's serve went absent in second set. Speaking of serves, I'd still like to see Caro strike the ball less above her head and more in front of her so she can lean into the serve. But if she has quit working with ToJo, I doubt we'll see technical improvements there.

NB: That's the second negative H2H Caro evens out in two weeks! :)

From wat I read she will train with him at his home and Work with the Adidas camp again hopefully the Adidas Camp can help improve her game as well, I always thought they help her game out alot too, but in a way I kinda think she need a coach

A more or less one-off match doesn't really count as improvement to me. Yes, she served great against Serena but she was down a double break in all 3 sets against Sharapova. Her serve proceeded to suck the majority of the time. :shrug:

From Ivanovic we know it can be crazy (difficult),

but it's not rocket science (to throw the ball up a little in front of you, than up over your head)

Yeah, but forcing the play, not just by getting the ball back into the opponent's court. The Italian Supersport commentators said that Caro was rushing Roberta constantly, putting her completely off her game because she was taking the ball so early. And they said that Caro had was hitting such heavy shots that she destroyed Roberta's volloying, the balls were dipping so much at the last minute.

It's what she should have done a while ago. Buy staying in Caroland, she was depriving herself of her biggest weapons: anticipation and quickness.

Now she's beating the players she should beat convincingly. I'm so looking forward to next year to see if she can keep it up against the likes of Kvita, Aga, Serena and Maria S.

I did indeed. Her performance in Moscow was really reminding me of the 2010-2011 seasons. She tried to mix it up and did right things at the right time. I liked to see a good balance of attacking and defending. When she focused only on one of the two it never worked out.

I think Caroland had a lot to do with her lack of confidence. When she was doing well in the past she used to be more pro-active as well.

WD Caro. Nice win that. Only saw the 1st set. But she was in control. They showed the % where they were striking the ball and Vinci was something like 85% behind the baseline, 15% inside. While Caro was like 55% behind the baseline and 45% inside. I also liked that she fought back from 15-40 to take the 1st set.

She should be beating these players. I think she's still some way away from the standard of play I saw at the YEC. But these players - she's better than them and she's been beating them convincingly lately. And although I'm usually a bag of nerves when I'm watching her live - I did feel she had this match. Earlier this year - I really was very nervous no matter who she played whether she was going to be beaten.

Anywaay - Dani tomorrow. A nice win please Caro and then she gets a day off.
