Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Does Caro take into account who her next opponent is when she chooses a practice partner? She was practicing with Aga today and Petra over the weekend. Neither of those seem to be good approximations of Hantuchova as Kvitova is a lefty and Aga's shots are a lot less powerful than Hantuchova's and she moves a lot better also.

Besides that, I'd prefer that Caro not practice with Aga in general. Aga is too familiar with Caro's game as is and given Caro's losing streak against Aga, I'd prefer she not refresh Aga's familiarity with her game or expose any potential changes or improvements.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Sometimes she does. I think she once practiced with Kvitova before a match against Robson. But focusing on Caro's own game is probably much more important.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

This is a crazy year for Caro. Starting with her saying yes to a marriage proposal. 2 different coaches come and go. It sounds like she's planning on retiring after 2016 Olympics and having kids. Then Rory calls for 3 minutes.
And its back to tennis.
I think hardcourts are her only realistic chance to ever contend at a major, so these next few weeks are the whole year for her tennis

Ok draw for Caro. Hopefully she makes it to the 3rd round to play Bouchard.

Good luck Caro.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

Good 6-1 6-1 win over Hantuchova in Montreal R1, Caroline !

Is Caroline really coming back to her old form ? We will see
Her slump started with loss to Hantuchova at French Open 2011
Now beat Koukalova. I want the first meeting with Bouchard !

I see the high bounce but I'm not sure I'd call it medium-fast. It sometimes seems kind of difficult to finish points and there's too much successful retrieving/defending by players I wouldn't normally have considered as very good defenders.

I'm curious what others think.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

No stream? She did that to herself with years of poor results.
This is another winnable match. Its like playing Strycova. This is a veteran who hasnt won much, but will beat you if you play poorly.
Here is a chance to keep a winning streak going from Istanbul

I'm usally not bitching about scheduling but how the hell Cibulkova (#12) vs Watson (#57) put on televised court before Caro ( #13 and former champion) vs Koukalova ( #35)

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 7

For those who are interested, here's my scouting report on Shelby Rogers:

She has a very good and powerful forehand which wins her a lot of points. Although she hits it very hard, she has a good deal of margin usually and it's pretty consistent.
Her backhand is another story. She has a very low shot tolerance for her backhand, as after three or four backhands in a row she'll either go for too much or make a sloppy error.
Her serve is durable as she is capable of hitting any serve and she moves the ball around the service box nicely. She can power up when she needs to and generally has success when doing so. However, she usually gets into trouble on serve when she just gets the serve in and becomes too passive on that shot.
She is not the best mover and is not in great shape although she has slimmed down considerably from last year.
She is usually very emotional on court, but has really cleaned that up over the past couple months.

Player Comparison: Karin Knapp
Rogers has a more consistent forehand than Knapp but her backhand is definitely worse. Serve, movement and pace are pretty comparable although Shelby can reign it in when she needs to.

Overall, Caro should win in straights, but Shelby will probably win more games than Dani or Klara did. Caro must exploit the backhand to backhand pattern and Caro's forehand up the line will be key to keep her out of forehand to forehand exchanges. Good luck Caro!!!
