It sounds good in theory, but realistically I can't see her doing as suggested and start practicing on hard courts now to be ready for the hard court season. That would be completely giving up altogether on clay and grass. Tbh, what goldenlox suggested is exactly what she should have been doing in the off season.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

I think that she's going to put some effort into preparation for grass season. She's got next to nothing to defend there so possibly could get some decent results if she doesn't show up in the similar poor form as during clay (so far.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Well THere still more clay season let I hoping she get some good result at least do well at Rome & if she play BRUSSELS OPEN, As far as the RG I hope she can at least make the 4th round or better but so far clay season not going good. As far as grass I like too see her breakthrough and make a QF at WImby and like many have said she have nothing too defend come grass season & even at the U.S. Open so there point too be gain at both those slams

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

There's still a lot of clay season left, but so far she would have been better off skipping it totally.
Whats the point in playing these tournaments if she loses in 2 sets and is finished before the high seeds play?
I dont know if she's burned out, or if she feels her slam window closed and she isnt motivated, but now she's lost 4 of her last 5 matches, and she's much too good a player for that

We know that players can have a couple huge points grabs at Slams and Premiers...play mediocre tennis the rest of the year...and then sneak into YEC at #8(or #9 or #10 if there's an injury WD or two amongst the Top 8),but I'd rather that she didn't have to struggle to barely make it there(OR miss it completely).As long as that continues,I'll say that Caroline is playing below her potential

when I said that she should have better skept the first part of the clay season to train properly everyone year said I was a fool and she should have played to get points and everything.
Her ranking is the least problem right now, she needs to work on her game and mentality

She definately needs to work on her game & mentality. There is no point going for a lot with your forehand if it ultimately makes you a weaker player.
She needs to keep her forehand under control, otherwise anyone can beat her. Thats what her opponents attack, her forehand. Its what her opponents want, forehand errors or short balls
I wonder how many years go by before she starts to play safer on her forehand? This is one of the most unsuccessful sports experiments I can think of

It reminds me of Manfred Moelgg, Italian skier...he was world best slalom specialist and among bests in the GS skiing with fischer skis...he switched to Rossignol and all his flows got exposed...he had to change back to Fischer and work for a couple of years before getting to the top...

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6

Well I said many times that she can improve on many area in her game & I think getting a new coach will help, I do think through she need too improve on her Forehand & Serve and learn how too hit winner on that side just like she can on the backhand

I am not sure I am following this post. Sneaking into Istanbul is almost certainly Caro's only hope of getting there. Arriving as an alternate is a bit of a hollow exercise, because you are essentially making up the numbers, and have very little chance of making the semi finals (or even having a chance of doing so).

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6



Here's translation ( credit to: @TennisSupporter) of Caro & Piotr convo during the first changeover:
Quote:
Caro: "I'm not stressed. I just can't see anything because of the shadow. I don't know, I think I have to wear a sunglasses''
"I am not stressed dad, I just can't set up properly to the ball, because I can't see from where it is coming"
Quote:
Piotr: " If you have such an approach to the game, it's just best to give up!, NO! Try to focus more on your game, come closer to the balls. Just think positive, nothing on force and play what we had practiced before. Sun is sun and it will shine, so just forget about it. You can do it! Come on!"
She is such a mess! It's really sad I just can't understand what's going on with her!

The only reason I don't see this working (and I think this was my view at the time you said it before too) is Caro never uses her time off well anymore. If I would believe she would use the time wisely, I'd be fully behind such a move, but really if she couldn't do this during the off season last year, I see no reason why taking the time off now would be any different.

We expect young stars to go on and have great careers. But as they become wealthy & famous, they have to want to continue as great players.
She can easily watch tapes of her best wins and see what she was doing then. There is no reason to keep losing and losing when she is very capable of beating Pervak, Wang, Muguruza, Voegele.. Players like Vesnina can go 4-0 against those players.
But Caroline has to want it, and when she has 21 errors, she knows that's not how she wins matches

Fair enough,I probably didn't explain myself well.....Caro used to EASILY qualify for YEC,as do pretty much all of the great players.For them,there's no worrying about sneaking into YEC with the last spot,or as an alternate.To me,the fact that Caroline has been reduced to that shows unfulfilled potential
