IMHO it's technical deficiencies, notably on the FH wing. When a player cannot hit 3 FH rally shots in a row without netting the ball, its a technical deficiency rather than lack of confidence. Again imho of course.
It's both. Sometimes her forehand holds up quite well. But as is the case with most other players with a technical deficiency it's a players' weakest strokes that break down in moments of crisis or when things get tight. For Caroline it's that forehand and her serve. I don't think there's much she can do about that serve. It looks technically pretty sound to me as it is and while it's not a strenght, it's not any worse than the serve of most other girls. But the forehand is something she CAN improve imo. Sam Smith has said several times that she doesn't understand why she doesn't. It's nowhere near as complicated as changing your service action. It would be relatively simple to do and the rewards could be huge according to Smith. And of course, once that forehand would improve, so would her confidence as a result.

^ I am not sure, we should read too much into that. She always says something along those lines and often doesn't return. ...

The way things are going, she will be able to play all the MMs she wants next year... unless they have changed the rules, the limitation of 2 MMs only applies to top 10 players, I think.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

As long as she cant get out of week 1 at majors, I dont think playing 2 Intl's or 10 makes much difference.
She has to be able to show up ready and capable at big tournaments.
If Rory cant do it either, at least he has 2 majors already.

AO 2011 obviously, as mentioned already by some other posters. But she's had a few decent chances over the years, I think.

FO 2010 was looking good. Stosur was defeating the most difficult opponents in the other half (Serena and Henin). Caro was in the QF against Schiavone, a player who in spite of having played slams for 10 consecutive seasons at this point of her career had never reached a SF before! Furthermore, Caro is 5-0 agianst Schiavone since that FO quarter final! So a Caro win wouldn't be a total surprise. But Fran was too good on the day, I'll admit as much. The SF opponent would have been an injured Dementieva, who retired in the SF against Fran. And anything could have happened in a final aginst Stosur. Stosur was good that year, but she was somehow affected of being in her first slam final.

USO 2010 was another good opportunity for Caro. She defeated Vera three times in the course of two months of the autumn of 2010: Montreal final, Beijing final, and YEC semi final. But she lost the USO SF to Vera. Caro could just as well have won judging by her results during the fall of 2010. But Clijsters would have been too tough in the final (again).

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Vacation time is almost over. Next up is red clay. Stuttgart, where Caroline was in the 2011 final.
Last year Caroline lost her 1st match at Stuttgart, Madrid and Rome. Cant do worse than that!

Oh yes she can. Because of her lower ranking there probably won't be anymore bye's in the first round. So if she loses her first match now she's actually out one round earlier than last year. Go Caro!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Clay will tell how much effort she is putting into her tennis.
I thought she did well in 2011, won Brussels & Charleston, final in Stuttgart, close semi with Sharapova in Rome. Disappointing loss in FO to Hantuchova, but overall, she put a lot of effort into her clay matches.
But the last 2 years, she doesnt win matches, especially 2013.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Omg I just realized Caroline is unseeded at Stuttgart !

And not even close to be seeded. Caro`s only #12. Shows how deep she has fallen

I really hope Caro surprises us with a great tournament. Final like 2011 ?

I am surprised by the full last 2 years. Not only that she's unseeded,
that she goes through coaches in a few weeks, doesnt make any deep slam runs, only one title (Lux) in over a year and a half.
The whole situation is shocking when you think about where she was 3 years ago.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

I hope she can turn things around, because history wont be kind.
Kournikova was in a Wimbledon semifinal at 16. 2nd youngest ever. Was in the Miami final at 16.
She beat Davenport and Capriati several times, beat Seles and Hingis and a lot of good players.
People talk about her like she was a model who couldnt play tennis.

Caroline keeps playing like this, people will say it was weak era, she was never any good.
I can see it coming from that GM thread.
