Paszek has lost in back to back weeks to a player ranked 167 in the world. If Caro can't beat her then there are severe problems.

Paszek lost to #137 and to #76 in the two weeks prior to Eastbourne last year.

Paszek lost to Riske last year on grass in Nottingham as well.

You still have to be winning these sort of matches if you want to be going anywhere in the rankings anytime soon. The potential R2 draw looks a good draw too.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

I like how we're trying to convince each other who's worse: Caro or Tamira! Caroline has lost to a player, Qiang Wang, who had no top 100 wins before beating Caroline, and Qiang Wang was ranked #186. How about that?

There are no easy draws for Caroline these days. But I agree with Ozza. Caroline must start playing like a #9 and win the matches she's supposed to win.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Caroline has been terrible as well, that's why this draw does not give me any comfort. Round 1 is tough no matter what form Tamira is in, because Caroline isn't any better.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

I think her overall level of play, and her determination to fight for matches is much more important than whether she wins a round or 2.
She used to be in semis 15 of 19 tournaments. She's a past champion here.
So I dont care if the draw is hard. I want to see high level play and fighting for each point.
Until we see that, a soft draw wont mean much (like in Charleston, couldnt have a softer trip to the semis and she lost to Voegele)

Is that the same Babolat racquet she used to use? If not, then how does it compare to her old Babolat racquet?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

She wouldn't make the racquet black if it was Yonex racquet, I would think she can use and try out any Yonex racquet by her being singed to them so it will have to be another company racquet i guessing ?

If Caro's progress in the rankings depends on beating players better than her on a particular surface, then improving in the rankings is going to be very difficult.

I don't know about you, but I consider Paszek to be a better grass court player than Caro even before this season.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Assuming the black racket is a Babolat or any non-Yonex for the matter, she can train with that all she wants, when she plays an official match, surely her Yonex contract will stipulate, she will have to play with a Yonex.

Training with one racket and playing match with another, is just a recipe for disaster.

The days where footballers could promote Nike and get away with painting over the 3 Adidas stripes on their match shoes, are long gone.

It would of course indicate that she is thinking of changing racket though, whether she is willing to buy out of her current contract or they are willing to terminate her contract (possible given her results) we don't really know.

Thats an important decision. Dont want to break a contract unless you are sure you would rather have the other stick

How low do you have Caro in the grass court rankings then? I don't really have set rankings by surface in my mind. But looking at this draw there looks far worse draws to me than a heavily out of form, carrying an injury player, even if she has done well here and on this surface in the past. I can't imagine Paszek is top 10 even on grass.

When I say this isn't a bad draw, that doesn't mean Caro will win, it's just Caro has to start winning these sorts of matches, because if you are not then there are way too many people in the draw who are getting the better of you, and then quite frankly Caro doesn't deserve to be top 10.

If Caro were in decent to solid form, then I'd say she's maybe ranked 15 to 20 on grass.

I think if Paszek isn't top 10 on grass, then she's pretty close to it.

Should Caro have beaten Lisicki in 2009 at Wimbledon, Kvitova in 2010 at Wimbledon?

If Caro had drawn Kuznetsova during the clay court season, would you have said that Caro has to win that match?
