After Wozniacki terror concerns: We trust ITF
Efter Wozniackis terrorbekymring: Vi stoler på ITF - TV 2

Danish Tennis Federation understands Caroline Wozniacki concern for Fed Cup matches in Egypt, but trust in the International Tennis Federation's decision.

In April, the Danish Fed Cup team play international matches in the Egyptian capital, Cairo. The location of the matches have met nervousness from the team's biggest star Caroline Wozniacki.

The director of the Danish Tennis Federation, Sune Irgens Alenkær, is not without concerns about international football:

- I would aboslut have felt better if the game had been elsewhere, including Europe, says Sune Irgens Alenkær who still have confidence in the decision.

- Conversely, I must also say that we must trust that the International Tennis Federation have made their feasibility studies well enough, and that of course they can guarantee the safety of all athletes, including the Danish.

See a part of the interview with Caroline Wozniacki around the Fed Cup in Egypt in the clip at the top of the article.

Out of Fed Cup - the women's equivalent of the Davis Cup - played first to April. Therefore, the Danish Tennis Federation stay up to date on how things develop in the Egyptian capital.

- It is clear that we will be in continuous dialogue with the International Tennis Federation to assess the security situation, so we from Danish side can stand on the goal to send our athletes off.

But you are safe?

- We rely at least in the International Tennis Federation have made their process thoroughly. We are also sure that if the situation were to deteriorate in one way or another, they will also take the appropriate precautions, says Sune Irgens Alenkær to TV 2 SPORT.

Foreign Ministry writes on his website about traveling to Egypt:

"There is generally a high risk of terrorism throughout Egypt, including Cairo. There is also a risk kidnappings throughout Egypt."

The risk, the Danish journalist Eva Plesner, who is in Cairo, well recognize.

- There are problems with the security of Egypt. The stone is safely. 95 percent of terrorist attacks will take place on dn northern part of the Sinai Peninsula. But there are also attacked in Cairo, says Eva Plesner to TV 2 SPORT.

She says, however, that the attacks in Cairo is not directed at sporting events, but the police, consulates and domestic buildings.

- I can not think of a terrorist attack in Cairo in connection with a major sporting event. But recent years have actually been very few major sporting events in Cairo, and it is primarily associated with fear of terrorism. You dare not put major sporting events here, says Eva Plesner.

But even sporting events such as a tennis match has not been subjected to attacks, so understand Eva Plesner good Carolina Wozniacki's nervousness about security.

- Egypt is a place where there may be violent things. And one should not rule out that a risk of great anxiety about a tennis tournament.

- But typically happens tumult at football matches, when the fans smoking at loggerheads. But it is not political terror, yet quite serious when people are killed. And so there have been audience to football matches in over a year, says the Danish journalist for TV 2 SPORT.

Re: Caroline Wozniacki Articles and Interviews

I was quite surprised to hear they had chosen Egypt as location, like... who was the genius behind this? Are they purposely looking for trouble or what! I just hope everything turns okay.

If they continue to make stupid decisions like this she shouldn't even play Fed Cup any more imo. I very much doubt she'll be in Olympics 2020, so it's pointless anyway after this year Olympics.

Caroline Wozniacki is a little better than Angelique Kerber, who has just won the Australian Open, says Michael Mortensen

Last year she lost in the first round of the Australian Open and the third round in the other three Grand Slams, but this year the 28-year-old German Angelique Kerber went all the way and won the Australian Open final by beating none other than Serena Williams.

- It was one of the best finals in many years. Kerber did very well. She does not have many facets in her game, but the shots, she can, those she can. She plays very flat, and you could look at Serena that she became more and more frustrated, says Eurosport's tennis expert Michael Mortensen to Ekstra Bladet.

Kerber had never been in a Grand Slam final and has never been better than fifth in the world rankings. It was in other words, not in the air, the German should go to the top.

- No, it did certainly not. She is a player who typically reach the fourth round and quarter-finals and such, but against both Serena and also against Azarenka in the semifinals, showing herself as strong runner and good at getting the balls back to the opponent so she feels she must hit even harder next time, says Mortensen.

The tactic sounds like a copy of Caroline Wozniacki's tactics, and the tennis expert believes that Wozniacki could have been with the Australian Open trophy.
- Yes, she could. Caroline is also crazy run strong. I saw her train well in Florida and then lose anyway in the first round, but I can easily imagine that she this season is going into her third Grand Slam final, says Mortensen.
- And she can also win the final, if she has a good day, like Kerber did, Caroline can actually the same as Kerber and even a little better, says Mortensen.

- Caroline's backhand is a little better than Kerbers. It has more top spin where Kerber hits more flat. Kerbers up the line is good for taking time away from the opponent, but they are very similar, says Mortensen, who believe that Caroline is also better at the net.

And Angelique Kerber was close to defeat in the first round of this year's tournament, like Wozniacki did. The German survived match ball in the second set against Misaki Doi, won tiebreak and then took the third set 6-3.

Should Wozniacki win a Grand Slam this year, Michael Mortensen think most at the US Open, where she has previously done well.

- But the French Open is also an opportunity, because I do not think she has gotten all, as her game justifies says Mortensen.

Here, Serena Williams will probably also fight for victory.
- Now the goal of the four Grand Slams has gone away for this year, but the goal to beat Steffi Graf's record for the most Grand Slams and winning Olympic gold. Today it was beautiful to see the way she took the defeat. She met in Kerber a better opponent on the day, says Mortensen.



What a kiss-ass!

Så kan Caroline også vinde Grand Slam ? Ekstra Bladet

Wozniacki nervous to play in risky Egypt
Wozniacki nervøs for at spille i risikofyldte Egypten - TV 2

It is the fear that buddy that Caroline Wozniacki will play Fed Cup in April.

TV 2 SPORT learned Wednesday that the Danish tennis women playing Fed Cup, the women's equivalent of the Davis Cup, in the Egyptian capital Cairo in April.

The Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki is surprised by the location, as the Foreign Ministry has called Cairo for a risk area because of terrorist threats and the risk of kidnapping.

- We really must do everything possible to added safety. And if one has to take more security with, then you must do it. Now it's brand new, and there are some months, but it is a shame that you have to play in a place where you can not feel safe, says Caroline Wozniacki to TV 2 SPORT.

- It is clear that you are a little nervous when you are told that you should not go down.

Foreign Ministry writes on its website on Egypt: There is generally a high risk of acts of terrorism throughout Egypt, including Cairo ... There is also the risk of kidnappings throughout Egypt.

Already makes Wozniacki itself considering some of the HANDLING, the delegation should take to reduce the risks.

- You have to think about where to go, and what to do. You may need to come to the hall at the last moment, instead of getting up early, and then get the game fighting and leave with the same again.

It has not been possible to get an explanation on the location of the Fed Cup in Cairo from the International Tennis Federation, an explanation Wozniacki also would like to hear.

- I do not know what is behind the decision. It is interesting that they have chosen a place where there has been so many things. I think there are many other countries that might have been a slightly better choice in this situation.

The easiest would be to drop the trip, but it is not currently a dedicated Wozniacki.

- I am considering not to opt out. Not right now, anyway. I'm in the Olympics, and there are rules that I have to play another Fed Cup tie in years to come.

Denmark Caroline Wozniacki moved up in the Fed CUP's Group 2 after victories last year in Montenegro, and the national team is among eight countries participating in the tournament in Cairo, where the top two advance into the FED CUP's Group 1 Tournament in Egypt played in week 15 of the 11.april.

I think she would need an intermediate step of winning something bigger than an international. I think winning all those premiers last year was an important step in building Angie's confidence.
Women's tennis is really open despite Serena's dominance (the pressure for the year grand slam has definitely affected her, even if she wants to pretend otherwise) , obviously it helps to win bigger tournaments as it gives you experience and mental toughness, but what had Schavione won before RG? Penneta was in terrible form before USO 15! What had Stosur won? It really comes down to being physically ready and fighting through tough patches of play, Kerber was coming in to Melbourne with another one-sided loss to Azarenka, she was terrible against Doi, then I watched her play utter crap against Beck, but she got through, and at the big matches she showed up, she had zero pressure against Vika and Serena and she took her chances, she deserved it.

Well, if she said her goals are to win a PM or reach QFs a Slam that would be lame. The day she says that she might as well retire, because she's done that been there. Obviously, it's frustrating when she's not getting the results, but she has to believe. The schedule is definitely heavy, but I'm sure she's only keeping her options open, if she starts getting results she'll drop or tank a few tournaments, but if she keeps losing early at least she's cashing in some extra

Of course she can schedule better now, she can play how many Internationals she wants and that what she will do, 4 just in the first half of the season! And I didn't know playing every week helps to stay healthy and injury free!

Please don't give up on her, Saraya! Let's see if she starts winning some matches to give her some confidence. That's the first step.
Certainly I don´t give her up, love her to much and I am not Jimmie.
