Re: Articles and Interviews

Caro just met the media in New Haven. Check those local papers online tomorrow

Tennis Panorama News ‏@TennisNewsTPN

Wozniacki talks about playing with pain: "If nothing hurts it might mean I'm dead", 90% of players prob have something hurting #nho13

Wozniacki enjoyed caddying for McIlroy at Masters Par 3, she would hand him a club and he would say "wrong one" #nho13

Seems like lazy journalism to me.

Once again Caro's match vs another top 10 player got only one sentence at the Wta's website.

Azarenka beat No.10 seed Caroline Wozniacki in the night match on center court, 63 76(5).

Chris Elsberry: Wozniacki happy to be back in New Haven
http://www.ctpost.com/sports/article...?cmpid=twitter
Quote:
NEW HAVEN -- She is back on familiar ground. Back in a place where she was embraced with open arms six years ago. Every time she returns, she is hugged even harder, especially by tournament director Anne Worcester. If Caroline Wozniacki hasn't become the face of the New Haven Open at Yale, it certainly seems like it.

Think about it. When she first arrived in 2008, Wozniacki, just 17, brought a breath of fresh air to a tournament than had been lacking in star power. Venus had stopped showing up, Serena had never been here (and was never going to come), Maria Mania lasted all of one match in 2004 and that died on the vine when Sharapova permanently crossed New Haven off her schedule (she's hasn't been back). But then Caroline came and everything changed.

She was an instant hit, both on and off the court. That first year, during a rain delay, she went over to watch the Yale football team practice. Jjust like that, she had 100-plus players and their head coach at the time, Tom Williams, fawning over her. She played a fun game of giant lawn tennis on the Yale Bowl football field, she constantly talked up the city and the cool things there were to do downtown, like the restaurant dining program and she was more than willing to step in and help out whenever Worcester needed a personal appearance.

Oh, did I mention, she's blond, blue-eyed and ¦ and a darn good tennis player?

Well, she's back again, here to try and do something that's never been done before and that's win the tournament for a fifth time. Venus Williams won four times between 1999 and 2002 and decided that was enough. Wozniacki did it between 2008 and 2011 and reached the semifinals last year, trying to win one for the thumb before suffering her first loss on the Connecticut Tennis Center's stadium court, having to retire with a right knee injury.

"I like it here. Obviously, I like it here," Wozniacki said Sunday in a pre-tournament sit-down with the media. "The court suits me really well. The atmosphere of the tournament is ¦ it always feels like a second home. I'm happy to be here again."

It's a safe bet, so is Worcester. Marion Bartoli, suddenly retired last week in Cincinnati, taking her Wimbledon championship plate back to France. And despite having four of the Top 10 players in the world in the field, for the tennis uninitiated, Sara Errani (No. 6), Angelique Kerber (No. 8) and Petra Kvitova (No. 9) aren't exactly household names.

That leaves Wozniacki to try and sell the event. And she's more than happy to oblige.

"Coming back here and playing and winning, the first time I was here was six years ago," she said. "Time flies. I'm just enjoying every year I'm here."

And, hopefully, the fans can enjoy a lot of her tennis here this week. Playing-wise, it has not been the best of summers for Wozniacki. Overall, her 21-17 match record in 2013 is shadowed by first-round upsets in Rome, Madrid, Stuttgart, Brisbane and Kuala Lumpur. She lost in the fourth round at the Australian Open and in the second round both at the French Open and Wimbledon, leaving her still hunting a Grand Slam title. Just two years ago, she was No. 1 in the world and winning a Slam seemed inevitable. Now, the talk is -- will she ever win one?

"It's just talk. I feel like I'm playing well," she said. "I feel like I'm on the right track. I think most things (in my game) I'm really pleased with. I'm pleased with my fitness, I'm pleased with the way I'm moving on the court. I'm pleased with most things, actually. Sometimes everything just feels great and sometimes in a match you feel like the serve didn't work or the return. There are always small things, but generally I feel very good about my game." Funny, but her game hasn't really made headlines of late. It's more her off the court activities that have captured all the attention.

Google "images" of Wozniacki and one is bombarded with sex symbol shots of her in a bikini. Or worse, less than flattering shots of her stuffing her sports bra with towels to imitate Serena's bust line at a recent exhibition match.

Then, there's her boyfriend, professional golfer Rory McIlroy, a two-year relationship that was recently criticized -- loudly -- by Gary Player, who said that "beauty was not the answer" and that McIlory needed to "find the right wife." Did that talk bother her?

"Not really," she said. "I just live my life as I want to live it. I want to enjoy my life. I have a tennis career and I want to be the best player I can be. Off the court, I want to enjoy my success, I want to enjoy the life that I have. I don't really care about what anyone else thinks. The most important thing is that I'm happy and that he's happy as well."

NEW HAVEN OPEN: Caroline Wozniacki attempts to get career back on track

http://middletownpress.com/articles/...mode=fullstory




NEW HAVEN >> Caroline Wozniacki is on the cusp of dropping out of the Top 10. She’s reached just one final this year and her relationship with professional golfer Rory McIlroy has drawn criticism.

None of that seems to bother her, though.

She still has the same bright smile, blond hair and sweet personality that had been a staple when she was at the top of her game and won four straight New Haven titles.

“That’s life,” said Wozniacki, ranked No. 10, of her struggles. “I feel like I’m on the right track and feel like I’m playing well. That’s what I’m thinking about right now.”
Wozniacki, along with No. 6 Sara Errani, No. 8 Angelique Kerber and No. 9 Petra Kvitova — the top four seeds in this year’s New Haven Open — were on hand for the tournament’s All-Access Hour Sunday at the Connecticut Tennis Center.

She seems excited to be back in New Haven, hoping to find success here once again get back to the level of tennis that had her ranked as the world’s top player for 67 weeks.

Wozniacki was forced to retire in her semifinal match against Maria Kirilenko last year at New Haven because of a knee injury and her streak of 20 straight Elm City wins came to an end. She said she enjoys the crowd here, along with the court at the CTC and the Yale campus. Wozniacki is simply comfortable in New Haven.

“It always feels like a second home coming back here,” she added.

Wozniacki is coming off a 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) loss to No. 2 Victoria Azarenka in the quarterfinals at Cincinnati. Looking back, she’s pleased with all that she’s accomplished at 23 years old. Her first Grand Slam remains as motivation and she’s confident she still has some great years of tennis left.


“I don’t really know the rankings or anything,” Wozniacki said.” I just play. I think I can beat anyone if I play well. Whether No. 1, No. 10 or No. 11, you have to beat the person on the other side of the net. I think I have great potential.”

I can't believe that she said she's a better tennis player now than a few years ago. 2009/mid-2011 Caro would have easily beaten mid-2011/2013 Caro.

Let's take it as the usual PR speak, and not ignorance and/or denial.

A followup question would have been interesting. If she had been asked which parts of her game are better now than they were then could she honestly say any of them? How would she have reacted had she been confronted with facts (statistics) that show that her game is not better? I would also like to hear her opinion on why she is much less consistent now. The "old" Caroline rarely lost to, or even struggled against, players outside of the top thirty. Now she is in danger of losing to just about any player in the top hundred and there are very few "easy" wins.

It it is normal, to have 'issues'. I mean, what are all these sports psychologists and analysts and coaches doing, if it isn't normal? Na LI for example, has concentration issues. I don't know exáctly the name of Carolines issues, but it often manifests or shows itself by her starting to 'play safe' and then she looses, if she doesn't 'wake up'. So, when she says, that she's a better tennis player now, she might not mean, that she's striking the ball harder or differently. It might mean, that she has learned to recognize her own weaknesses and strengths, learned more about the psychological part of tennis or other tennis player related stuff. But, what I have seen from the match against Vika for example, is that she's not afraid of 'being exposed', she didn't retreat, but some of her weaknesses were exposed, but how would she ever know her own needs, if they were not exposed as needs, things she needs to work and implement in real matches so they becom part of her tennis. The only way to stay on top in tennis, is to improve all the time. Caroline stagnated but the other players didn't, that's about it.

She actually doesn't say "tennis player", so she obviously means that she's a better golf player than she was a few years ago.

Wednesday As It Happens ...
http://www.newhavenopen.com/news/wed..._it_happens__/

Quote:
Four-time winner Caroline Wozniacki avoided the upset trend at the New Haven Open at Yale Wednesday afternoon, booking a plae in the quarterfinals with a 6-1, 7-5 victory over Karin Knapp.

The Dane, seeded fourth here, will faced either Sloane Stephens or Julia Goerges for a shot at the semifinals. Wozniacki called for the trainer at 3-2 up in the second set, saying she felt dizzyon court.

"I'm feeling better now. I've had a bit of a cold the whole week and I'm just trying to keep myself healthy," Wozniacki told press after the match. "I started to feel a little dizzy out there and just wanted to make sure everything was OK."

New Haven Open notebook: Heat takes a toll
http://www.greenwichtime.com/sports/...medium=twitter

Quote:
"I've had a bit of a cold the whole week, and I'm just trying to keep myself healthy and going," Wozniacki said. "I started to feel a little bit dizzy out there and I just needed to see if there's anything they (the trainers) could do."

Wozniacki took a couple of salt tablets and drank both water and Gatorade during her five-minute timeout. After discussing her situation with the doctors, Wozniack decided to continue.

"They just told that I needed to go with my gut and what I felt," Wozniacki said. "They just checked me over and made sure that it wasn't dangerous for me to play. I'm definitely feeling much better now. I was feeling a lot worse in the beginning of the week."
