Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3
 
This to celebrate that the very promising Danish talent Caroline Wozniacki won her first Danish senior championship today, the youngest ever player to do so.

Go Caroline and congratulations on your first title!


This picture is an older one, but it was the best I had as no pictures from the Danish Championships have appeared yet.

Again Caroline didn't play up to her best, and a lot of the match Kirileko played well and was hitting the line.
You can see that in the score 7-5 7-6(4) after all the breaks back and forth Caroline was jusr getting the the right balls at the right time.
Not the most exciting tennis to watch.

A curiosity.
If Malmö FF (a Swedish soccer club) hadn't said no to Piotr in the 80's so he ended up playing for B1909 in Odense, she would be playing on a Swedish licence instead of a Danish.
According to Extra Bladet.DK the Swedes are moaning about that again. :devil:

It was a werry good match, exactly the match Caro needed to get tested and get going. Hope Maria keeps it up, she is playing some good tennis. She just failed on the line :worship:. Caro must have caught the winning habit :).

Caro says the wind made playing conditions difficult, and the rain break probably didn't help, either.

But she won and that's what counts. Dulko yet again survived MPs and knocked out second seed Cibulkova. Third seed Pennetta will now play Kudryavtseva and Caro will face the winner.

Why is Caro playing so poorly in Bastad? Is it the pressure of defending her title (last year this tournament was Stockholm), is it nerves from wanting to do well in front of her home crowd, mental or physical fatigue?

Did you watch Caro-Maria today and can say who played well? in GM ppl say Maria did play very well, but Caro won so she may have played better! :)

Yes, I watched it live in Båstad. Well, Caro was better and won. Both of them played well and it was a good match to watch, but Caro was stronger. She plays more aggresive now than for a couple of months ago, so it's funnier to watch her matches now, but she has to step her game up to win the title. Only one thing was boring and it was when Maria (not Caro!) started to hit moon balls and Caro did the same, so the rally constisted of moon balls. But Caro won the most of them. :)

Caroline has played much better earlier this year.
I cannot remember the exact names of the matches, some of which I saw, and I havn't time to research it, but here in this house we are convinced.
Just remember the match where she had 12 aces. Things like getting aces on second serves some times. ETC ETC.
I think some of it is the change back to clay, i think she mentioned it herself.
She also said that whatever the ranks or form or some such, when you went went out on the court you had 50% chance.

Watching the news video of her training boxing in Copenhagen, I was struck by the serious way she went at it, and the trainer said that he immediately could tell she was a professional athlete, she went at it completely focused just as a pro boxer would.
Then in a pre Kirilenko match TV report from TV2 Sporten .DK about the they showed her training in a garden in Bastad with the trainer, in the evening after she had played.
This made me think that (and this is just my OWN thoughts) maybe she was a bit tired of tennis what with playing so much this year, and the fact that things were standing still for her right now. She has achieved her goal for 2009 allready, she is in the top 10. She only got to R4 at Wimbledon and I think they hoped for QF at least. And she needs to start beating top 10 people to get higher.
Maybe this boxing thing is a way of doing other stuff away from tennis, but still keeping fit and strong.

Looking back at what I have written I hope people can follow it.

Anyway after Bastad, I hope the 3 weeks without tournaments and the combined training/holiday Piotr talked about, she will come back with renewed energy, accuracy and geist.

With all due respect, if Caro is playing well I don't think she should be needing Maria to choke in order to win.
