Maybe you're right that 'specialist' was too complimentary considering that she's never won a title and has rarely,if ever,gone deep at red clay Premiers;she's mostly done well at clay MMs.However,it IS her favorite surface by far and,though Caro is more talented,her clay success has been more sporadic.Now that Caroline can't even win consistently on her former BEST surface,we really can't expect her to win much on clay,even vs. someone with MM credentials there.Caro's best bet for a clay win would probably be against a slow mover who's almost immobile on that surface.

It might be better to ask this question in a couple of days as people have a chance to come to grips with this loss to Suarez Navarro and maybe have a bit of a different perspective.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

It's nice sentiment that the WTA outwardly shows Caro respect by acting as if it were a huge upset whenever a lower-ranked player beat her,but there's something very bullshitty about how they do it(which is par for the course).

I can't recall how old Muhammad Ali was cuz I was just a little kid at the time,but he was clearly well past his prime when he came out of retirement to fight the then-current champion Larry Holmes.It wasn't even a contest,really,and the ref mercifully stopped the fight by TKO before Ali was hurt too badly(although,with the residual effect of blows to the head,only God knows exactly how much damage Ali incurred).

My point is that Holmes didn't brag about defeating the legend who was a shadow of his former self,and it wasn't because he feared backlash,nor did any respected members of the boxing media speak admiringly about Holmes' victory;either scenario would've been insulting to boxing fans everywhere......Yet that doesn't stop the WTA from foisting similar b.s. insults on tennis fans.

I recall reading a summary of the day's matches a couple years ago,and Julie Coin was amongst the winners.The f--king asskissers on the WTA webpage STILL made glowing reference to Coin's victory over the "world #1" back in 2008,even though it had long since been made crystal clear that that player was a pathetic slut,lying fraud and joke--a disgrace to the sport and an INSULT to every player who has ever battled back from adversity to preserve her career.The way that the WTA presented it,you'd have thought that Coin had beaten Graf,Court or one of the WS,a REAL #1.If the WTA had carried the story,they'd have acted like Holmes beat the Ali from the 1960s who was in his athletic prime,and not the 40-year-old(guessing at the age)remnant of that legend.

Again,I don't know ANY other sports org. that bullshits like the WTA does,but it used to be a source of pride back when an upset of Caro was truly a big deal.Now that she's a recipient/beneficiary of the WTA's propaganda manure machine,it just adds a little more insult to the disappointment in seeing her struggle

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

WTA is doing it for themselves, not for Caro. Still trying to squeeze out some clicks from what has remained from her name.
No wonder Adidas bosses are not amused, this kind of losses are now very frequent. I think that Caro might be freaking out as well although she doesn't show it. I don't know what on earth are they doing but these results show that they have not backtracked and gone back to her old game at all. The old game would not lead to such disasters,no way. She would not give Suarez-Navarro any cheap errors and would use her opportunities.

I agree that she needs to do something about her focus and fast. She still has become a player that other want to have in their draw now. She's looking as someone who has lost her way and confidence. Hopefully she'll find it. She can look at Ana as an example of where loss of focus can lead...

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

I dont think she's freaking out, or she would play steadier.
I always knew this fall off was mental. If you're healthy you dont go from winning the most matches on the tour to losing to Vinci, Mchale, Pervak, Muguruza, Voegele, etc.

Caroline needs more desire, more hunger. Stuttgart cant mean one set trying hard, one not trying, then a week vacation.

I've said this before: If Serena or Sharapova lose round 1 at a major, you dont see them out & about. They have a burning desire to be great, and they are upset and desperate to improve.
Caroline treats a round 1 loss as a chance to have a vacation

She still can beat Pervak, Voegele, Muguruza. She showed that in Dubai & IW.
She has to want it bad, and she doesnt care enough

It can't be that simple though. It's not like a tap that she can just turn on and off. Part of the problem may just be how hard she is having to work to get through matches, if every match starting from R1 is requiring full mental application to win, it's inevitable you will come unstuck eventually. I get the feeling not a lot comes easy to Caro anymore, she has very few matches she can go out there, play at 50% and cruise through.

It's always a question really do you lose your hunger and desire because you started losing (more often), or did you start losing more often because you lost your hunger and desire.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Here's a few clay court stats prior to yesterday's match against Suarez Navarro:


Win/loss record against top 30 players on red clay (plus the blue clay from 2012 Madrid) from 2009 through Fed Cup last weekend:

Caro : 13-13 (50%) - This includes a 2-0 retirement win over Wickmayer.
Caro (excluding 2011 season): 7-10 (41%) - This includes a 2-0 retirement win over Wickmayer.
Suarez Navarro: 2-9 (18%)


# of red clay tournaments (plus 2012 Madrid) played from 2009 through Fed Cup last weekend:

Caro: 20
Caro (excluding 2011 season): 14
Suarez Navarro: 29 - She missed all of the 2011 regular clay court season (as in after Miami through the French Open) and part of the 2010 regular clay court season.


% of losses on red clay (plus 2012 Madrid) to players outside the top 15 from 2009 through Fed Cup last weekend:

Caro: 12/18 (67%) - This includes a loss to Schiavone in 2010 who ended that season inside the top 10. I'm not counting a retirement in Bastad in 2011 after winning the 1st set against Arvidsson as a loss.
Caro (excluding 2011 season): 9/14 (64%) - This includes a loss to Schiavone in 2010 who ended that season inside the top 10.
Suarez Navarro: 24/29 (83%) - This includes a loss to Li in 2009 who ended that season inside the top 15 and a loss to Schiavone in 2010 who ended that season inside the top 10. I'm not counting a retirement in Fes while leading 6-5 1st set against Keothavong as a loss.

In terms of game style, I don't think things have ever really came that easily for Caro though. There's been a lot of running and long points with not a lot of cheap points like from the serve even in better times.

I think it's more a function of losing of your hunger and desire.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

In her good days, she was steady and mentally tough. I thought her game fit her skillset.
Part of this problem is an aggressive forehand is not something she does well.
Its easy for her team to get tapes of beating Azarenka & Dementieva in Tokyo 2010 or beating Zvonareva & playing Kim close in YEC 2010 or beating Sharapova US Open 2010 or IW 2011.

Easy to see what she did well and what she struggled with.
Now, she has no consistency. She throws these matches away with lame forehand errors.
Even back in her best days I thought she had to be steadier on her forehand, because thats the side her opponents attacked. Now she just gives away points on her forehand side. Its a stupid style of play for her. Her forehand is always going to be the side she has to be careful about. Its never going to be a consistent weapon

You're probably right about the WTA's primary motives,and I'd say that they were also trying to put p.r. spin on the perception that their top players sometimes aren't nearly as strong as the best in the ATP...and so WTA hacks spin it as if the low-ranked player had an amazing,phenomenal match--and that her victory were truly awesome--instead of being candid that a few of the players who attained high rankings weren't really as good as their peak rankings showed.

Of course,JJ and Caro both rightfully earned their #1s with long-term consistent play,unlike two of the joke #1s who got there with a handful of aberrant,flukish results at Slams and Premiers.However,now a RANKINGS-based upset over Caro--not actually an upset in the truest sense--is just an opportunity for the WTA to practice their b.s. propaganda skills which show almost ZERO respect for the fans' intelligence.

One thing you didn't mention was the sporting culture that's fostered by the WTA.Again,I can't speak for the ATP,but other sports don't insult their fans by pretending that a former peak player is still on that level.If the player employs foolhardy or wrongheaded training techniques,the media experts just shake their heads and are brutally honest about it.They don't act like the wussies in the tennis media who are apparently too fearful of losing interview opportunities.If a former top player,in other sports,has adopted an embarrassing,pathetic off-court/field routine,then the media types will REALLY distance themselves from that player until he gets his shit together,so to speak.

Even the league's themselves are more professional from a p.r. standpoint.E.g.,the Oakland Raiders USED TO BE an NFL franchise known for hard-hitting,intimidating defense,to the point where it was trendy to get their team gear.Those days are LONG gone,though,as the franchise has become a joke due to mismanagement.Fans would just look at each other in disbelief--and be pissed off--if the NFL followed the WTA model by pretending(promoting) that an upcoming Raiders game was as prestigious as it would have been 10-plus years ago.I suspect that part of that stems from the subculture of spoiled,rich girls who comprise much of the WTA.Stacy Allaster and crew wanna pamper them the same way that mommy and daddy always have.

I agree with most of the rest of your post;she should at least re-establish the fundamentals of the game that made her successful,previously.She can even postpone adding other elements to her play(am NOT referring to an effective,NEEDED sound service game)...UNTIL she has re-acquired a solid foundation to her game

It all comes back to what direction is Caroline going in? Whose ideas are they? I swear in the off-season there was talk of going back to what made her successful in the first place, but now it seems from her latest performances and interview we are back to trying to be more and more aggressive, hitting forehand winners etc. It just seems there is no real direction being taken at all.

In other news, Caro has 7 losses to lower ranked players this year (6 of which were outside the top 60), those players have combined to win one more match after beating Caroline.

Her dad and her team have done a terrible job. She was at the top of the sport and still 20 years old. They just blew up her game. Of course you want to improve, but you do it slowly, within the overall integrity of your game.
What Caro did is crazy. Nobody revolves their game around their weakest shot. Caroline's aggressive forehand is a weak shot.
She's still losing to noncontenders over & over (CSN just lost in 2 sets to Shvedova), this is almost 2 full years of crappy results and wild forehands

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

@bruce goose Something you have to bare in mind is how much promotion and money the WTA invested in Caroline as their next big player. They are probably desperate for her to have success, so it makes sense for them to big her up even if she is a shadow of her former self. It's kind of like they don't want their investment to go down the drain.

It's worth noting it's not only WTA that are responsible. Sky Sports used that match for their headline for the whole event yesterday with a headline of something like "Suarez Navarro stuns Wozniacki".
