Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Now that Caroline has admitted to previously losing her hunger somewhat,we may speculate a little as to what,exactly,caused that.My current fave theory is 'Discouragement';that is,she remained #1 for such a long stretch and came sort of close to a couple more Slam finals after falling in her first back in 2009...yet she couldn't overcome that final hurdle.

That might account for the almost knee-jerk way that she tried to incorporate aggressiveness into her game(as opposed to tinkering,as several successful greats have modified their games).Caro is only human,but I don't believe that fan criticism played any major role,if ANY,in her decision to be more aggressive.If she was losing hunger,then a so-called quick-fix solution might have looked more appealing to her.......and the way in which those changes were implemented kept reminding me of a quick-fix mentality right from the beginning
