Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I caught some of the match and it seemed as if she was hampered by her leg, definitely not the Duracell Bunny today.
It seems it forced her to go for more winners, as she had not the same mobility.
And she won which puts her 525 points ahead of SW, which is great. SW 6855 CW 7380

If she should win tomorrow she will be 825 ahead, as the winner gets 1000 which might mean she will be year ending #1.

Also our girl can do it on 1 leg, which means even though she cries at the time,
she is really not so "weak kneed"

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I didn't see the semifinal, so thanks to the people who provided some insight into the match. Caroline has done well to make it this far, and she can be proud of the way she has handled the pressure this week.

Beating Vera Z. will be tough if Caroline's movement is not at its best. Still, I'm looking forward to this final and hoping for a good match.

Why some people don't seem to understand this I have no idea.

Not so much ignorance as negative prejudice, IMO. It's hard to have a meaningful, healthy discussion with people who can't even be bothered to bring a modicum of intellectual honesty to the debate.

Yeah, Caro's movement was below par in both her losses to Zvonareva this year.

Interesting stat...Caro has started off her last 10 matches by serving 1st. The last match she didn't start off by serving 1st was the quarterfinal against Domi at the US Open.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

So, another Caro-Vera match, the two most consistent players in recent monhs. It's a tough match to call. Vera won their last match and leads H2H 3-2, but they're 2-2 on HC and Caro won their only previous final. Vera often underperforms in finals, losing her last 4, while Caro has won her last 5 finals.
They are two of the best movers and defenders on tour, but Vera usually has a little more punch from the baseline. In USO Caro lost primarily for two reasons; she didn't move into position as well as usual which caused an uncharacteristic high number of errors, and unlike Vera she didn't generate pressure on her 1st serve. Caro's sore left knee makes it likely the same problems will arise today. She obviously doesn't change direction as fast as usual. If Vera is smart she'll hit some dropshots as well as hitting behind Caro.
It's absolutely vital both Caro's 1st and 2nd serves are sharp today, but her 2nd serve in particular hasn't been impressive in this tournament. Caro also needs to take more chances than usual on her ROSs. Just putting the ball into play is a recipy for disaster, she needs to put Vera under pressure.
A lot also depends on their mind set and effectiveness. In USO Vera remained calm and served brillantly on almost all critical points. A goal of Caro's must be to frustrate Vera and make her nervous, not impossible in a final. But to do so Caro needs to be more effective on key points than she has been in her last two matches. Against both Shahar and Ana she failed to close out sets while break up and let her opponent back into the match. She mustn't do that today because likely she won't get many second chances.

Do they have a roof in Beijing? I was just checking the scoreboard for Beijing and it said that the men's doubles match was suspended due to rain.

Ah, so that must be why the Djokovic match hasn't started yet. I think it's about 4:30 in the afternoon in Beijing so hopefully the rain will stop and Caroline will play her match today. On the other hand it might help her to have an extra day off. Hmm, now I kind of want the match to be suspended until tomorrow.

Danish TV don't show Caro's matches, all Premier tournaments are shown on Eurosport. But with danish comments...

I take back what I posted after watching the semi~final the knee was definitely hampering Caro's movement. obviously there was a little more damage done than first appeared.

The panic reaction explanation is a good one and something I didn't think about when it happen. I come from a background of playing male team sports where the last thing you ever want to get caught doing is crying but for girls it's a little different

Usually it's Eurosport alone which has the WTA rights in Denmark, and not all danes have that channel in their cable package. Sometimes TV2 (one of the channels all danes can receive) buys/transmits one of Caro's matches but it's rare.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Obviously it's still raining in Beijing. It also doesn't look good. According to Weather.Com, Beijing will have rain tonight local time.

The facilities were built for 2008 Olympics with all kinds of hi-tech features. Why didn't they build a roof?

ETA: @4:52 pm Beijing/am US East: they just said on ESPN3 that the rain has been settling but play won't be possible before 5:30 pm Beijing time, and that's the men's final.
