Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

All of them, Vika, Maria, Petra, have a lot less to defend.
A year ago this was when Caroline was playing great every tournament.
So the best she can do this year is stay close in the race. As long as she's right there in 2012 points, it will be a meaningful 2nd half of the year.

Besides ranking, the other issue is majors. She has to be more consistent match to match.
Li broke her 6 of 7 times after Caro was 1 point from a win. She was 2 points from beating Cibulkova.
The losses to Dani & Kim she started down 06 14, and 36 25.

She needs 7 good matches, start to finish. There's no magic to it. Be consistent for a full tournament

April actually doesn't look too hectic with her likely playing Charleston (April 2-8), Copenhagen (April 9-15) and Stuttgart (April 23-29), although if she does go deep in Miami things may get a bit dicey (she could play the final on March 31st). May could really be packed if she plays all of the following: Madrid (May 5-13), Rome (May 14-20), Brussels (May 21-26) and then Roland Garros (May 27-June 9). To give herself any hope at all at Roland Garros she really should skip either Rome or Brussels.
She should be skipping Charleston and Brussels. Yes - both tournaments she's won and this makes it hard for her to say no. But she needs to be hard-nosed about this and be sensible. The priority is to give herself the best chance at RG.

The two tournaments I will never ask her to drop though are Copenhagen and New Haven. In thinking about a good schedule - it is completely unrealistic to suggest a schedule that does not include these two. They are both very special to her. But she can't have lots of other very special sacred tournaments if she wants to give herself the best chance at the slams as well.

I think skipping Rome should be out thhe question. But I think serious thought ought to be given to skipping Cinci or Toronto - and not just this year.

Yes, given the option Brussels should be skipped over Rome but she likes playing the week before a slam so maybe it would be easier for her to skip Rome? Of course she very rarely misses any of the mandatory/premiere five events so that is probably not an option either. It's just kind of crazy that she could be playing five weeks in a row (depending on how deep she goes).

Maybe fatigue was a factor last year at Roland Garros but she did not want to say it? I think that is the only way she would consider trimming her schedule.

It had to be, she wasn't just playing, she was preseason fitness training as well as playing.

If Caroline can find her form from 2nd half 2010, 1st half 2011, I'd personally be pleased.

Many posters and 'experts' want Caroline to severe ties with her father. It's not up to any of us though. It's up to Caroline and just because most of us don't live in a similarly tightly knit family, it doesn't mean the Wozniackis cannot have good family relations.

It's her life. It's her family. It's her business. Not ours.
Gotta agree.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

There might come a time when she separates with her dad. Sharapova did it around 21. Dementieva always kept her mom around.
Its important that she's comfortable with the situation, because the sport is very mental and she has to feel ready and eager to play with her coaching situation.
You can never totally evaluate it from the outside.

She don't want a new coach now, just dad and the Adidas team as before. After the departure from that other coach she will stay with her dad ithink some years now...

That fitness training idea of Piotr's in the clay season last year didn't work out very well though. She hasn't got very good results at RG. I think clay is her worst surface and so does she. She's got nothing to lose by trying something different like cutting down on her matches around then.

I think they did it because of the fatigue she showed in Miami, but It was a near disaster indeed.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

In 2010 Caro played Fran in the FO QF, and Fran won that title.
Losing to Hantuchova was a bad result.
I still think she can compete for the FO title. She beat Fran in Brussels, played okay in Rome, Stuttgart.

Maybe the heavy workouts were a mistake. But ultimately Caroline cannot start down 16 14 to anyone on clay, especially a noncontender. And Caro missed an easy shortball on game point early in set 2.
She has to be sharp each round at a major. She won 18 titles, play well every match at majors.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

At a very minimum,Piotr bears--not 'bares'--some blame for the lousy scheduling;it's hard for me to believe that he couldn't persuade Caro to cut back a bit...and,as an ex-pro athlete,there's less excuse for him to be ignorant of the potential fatigue factor on Caroline.

It's kind of stupidly obvious to say that 'it's her life';who else's would it be?Though I'm very pleased that Caroline has a loving,stable family,I wouldn't seeing Pop step back somewhat if he can't plan her tour calendar any better

^ Hard to plan against being a victim of your own success when your normally a slow season starter.

You can never totally evaluate it from the outside.
If there is a new coach at some point, Piotr needs to not be part of the coaching process in order for it to work.

After Wimbledon last year it sounded like she wanted to move on from Piotr as her coach.
