Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

I think the last 2 years look like ever getting back to #1 and being a consistent winner in good fields seems unlikely. She doesnt get through draws anymore.
The other aspect is take advantage of a flukey, super-soft draw at a major like Fran & Bartoli did.

Thats why the US Open was so disappointing, she had that kind of draw until the semis and couldnt get through that.

I still think she can improve enough to get through a flukey-soft draw.
I think she only won 4 quarterfinals all year in 2013, so getting any draw is a tough, tough assignment for her now.

People say she played well but Safarova won in 2 sets, then lost her next match in 2 sets.
Part of playing well is to close, otherwise, you're not really playing well, if you're up & down, but mostly losing important points to a player who never wins anything and never makes deep slam runs.

I think each major, especially hardcourt, is a test for her: can she get thru a soft section of the draw. It seems her only hope at a major. Start getting to week 2 again, just in case the draw falls apart
