Uber-defensive players NEVER last long, that type of game simply takes too much of a toll physically and mentally to keep playing at the same high level, not to mention even the most brainless WTA girls will eventually figure out how to stop making a trillion errors against her. Wozniacki and Jankovic barely lasted 2 years in the elite; Radwanska's run began probably in the summer of 2011 so the clock is ticking fast for her.
She's completely different imho. You could compare Wozniacki to Errani (or maybe Kerber, but it's not the same): defensive players who throw back a lot of balls and rarely make mistakes.
Radwanska is defensive but in a smarter way, she plays a lot of different shots and she could make a power player like Serena or Maria struggle (2012 Wimbledon and Miami -
). Plus, now she's #4 but having a higher level of opponents than Wozniacki had when she was #1 (Zvonareva was #2, now watch the quality of the top 3
I see it much more likely that she wins a slam than how it was for Caroline.
