Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Caro will face Kvitova in SF. Petra seems sufficiently sharp at the moment to be a 60-40 favorite in my book. Caro's serve and FH must be consistently better than today if she's going to have a chance of winning tomorrow. She can't let the agressive Czech dictate the whole match. Caro needs depth and angles on her shots to get her opponent running. Movement will always be a relative weakness with Petra. And let's hope Caro can get a handle on those serves out wide from ad court.

Caro played a long tough match, so she needs a good recovery. Then she has to serve better because Petra wont be easy to break.
One of these 2 will probably win this title and go to Indian Wells feeling like they are on the comeback

There are no match odds yet, as Kvitova only just won, but I'd be very surprised, if Kvitova is 'only' a 60/40 fave .. (I know you said 'in your book'.)

And I think that's fair. Caro is probably in with a ~25% chance given their form atm, but that's not zero and if the Czech only gets about even number of W to UE, there's definitely an (small) opening for Caro.

And even Caro loses, a SF i a P5 is an improvement to last P5

Edit : Looks like Kvitova is 1.6 ... that's for all intent and purposes a 60/40 match

Great performance from Caro today. I truly thought in the third set that she is going to lose her nerve when it matters but I was glad to see she made it. It was a brilliant fight from both players.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Tremendous effort level. If she can do that at IW and Miami, she should get thru to the main contenders, like she is now.
But she had a game point serving 4-3, 40-30 in set 1, then 40-0 or 40-15 when Bartoli served at 5-4. She has to close in those games. Has to, when playing the true contenders.

But overall, that effort level is a big deal, and lets see if she can do this again

Ugh. I rather dislike players being coached from the box during matches.

But we all know that every player is coached from the box. It's so easy to do that it's childs play. "If I put my sunglasses on it means that you have to serve and volley. If I scratch my hair you should play to her forehand. When I take a drink you should go crosscoart with your backhand....." There are countless signs you can come up with that no umpire can ever prove to be coaching, and I'm sure they all do it. Piotr is just too demonstrative a character to get away with it.

if you didn't know she's a journalist you would think it's some troll from TF!
I don't take her seriously! Unfortunately these days there is a lot of those so-called journalists on twitter who trolls non-stop!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Nice win over Bartoli, Caroline !

But please stop the choking. 1st set from 4-2 to 4-6. Caro had 0-40 at 4-5 but wasted all break points. And in 3rd set she had problems closing out the match at 5-2. Thank God she served it out to win 4-6 6-1 6-4.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Good win for Caro, didn't see the 1st but the 2nd set was really high quality from her!
I thought she was moving her forehand around a lot better today too, her forehand dtl was really solid.
Should be a good match vs Kvitova!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

It's better to take your opportunities whenever you get them,but it's good,at least,that Caroline was able to find close-out poise after blowing the chance in that previous service game

Many women get so little out of their service that serving isn't that much of an advantage. People will say that they choke when they can't serve out a match at 5-2 or something, but they really don't do anything different at 5-2 than at 3-3 - they just don't serve well no matter what the score is. In Caro's case I think her first serve is ok, but if her first serve percentage is only about 50% or less she has a better chance of closing out a match when she's returning than when she's serving.

That's a very interesting and,I think,accurate observation for the most part.Unlike folks who saw the match,I can't comment on WHY Caroline failed in her 1st attempt to close out.However,the serve is a relatively easy way to gain a quick advantage in closing out both individual points and also games/sets/matches,and I believe that Caroline is missing out on such a great helper by not having a more consistently threatening service attack......I can't really say how dominant Evert would've been in this era b/c there are some powerful ROS'ers who could've exposed her often-pedestrian service.Still,she may have adjusted if she'd been forced to do so

I can't with this so-called journalist She really despises Wozniackis, I've read some articles she wrote which were just ridiculous. I guess she cannot separate her favoritism of her preferred players and playing styles from her writing. And some of the things she writes are so GM! I think she must be coming there for inspiration.
