Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5
Dani is kind of a bad omen for Caro and I'm not just talking about the humiliating defeat at FO last year.
Olympics 2008: Caro beats Dani, loses next match against Dementieva.
Miami 2011: Caro beats Dani, loses next match against Petkovic.
Olympics 2012: Caro beats Dani, loses next match against Serena.
The only time this sad statistics was broken was at Ponte Vedra Beach 2009, where Caro the day after beating Dani managed to survive 4 MPs and a near heatstroke against Vesnina.
Tokyo 2012: Caro beats Dani, the next match...?
This will be the first time Caro isn't the higher ranked when playing against Li Na. And it'll be the first time since 2008 the two are facing off outside of Australia. Australia has been bad luck for Caro in this H2H (1-3, but just one point from 2-2, as I think we all know), what about Asia?
I'd say Caro is a slight underdog but Li was never the most stable of players. If Caro can keep Li back with deep groundstrokes and take the initiative when the opening is there, I think our girl has a fair chance.
