Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

As much as I love Halep and dislike Woz, got to go with the latter in terms of overal career achievements so far. Simona would need a couple more titles or a grand slam to overtake her

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

Equal so far, but Halep has an advantage, because she's able to win big titles on all surfaces, while Woz is only a hard specialist

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

So far it's still Woz, she has more titles and more weeks as #1

I have no doubts though Simona will surpass her

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

I think Woz is still ahead by a bit. I was going to say Halep will surely catch up, but there is only a one year age difference between them!

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

As of today, Wozniacki, largely by virtue of age and longevity achievements (title count and years/weeks at #1).

It will be interesting to see where they end up. Wozniacki is a top 5 contender at two majors, Halep at three majors. Halep's younger, but has been more beaten up in terms of injuries on a month-to-month basis.

I'd be surprised if Halep doesn't win another French Open, and I wouldn't be surprised if she wins at least one major on hard courts. I'd be surprised if Wozniacki didn't win another major on hardcourts, and I wouldn't be surprised if she wins another two or three.

I can imagine them ending their careers with 2-3-4 each. Whomever has more, greater. If it's a tie, it goes to Wozniacki unless Halep's title count at #1 years/weeks overtakes Wozniacki's.

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

If they retire now I'd have to say Wozniacki, although I pretty much hate her playstyle and off-court antics, also she destroyed my former favourite NBA player David Lee for me (especially the Miami drama).

But in the long run I strogly believe it will be Halep. Now with her Grand Slam (what's more valuable for me too than Wozniacki's insanely lucky AO campaign) I believe she won't choke anymore, at least not to an extent like vs. Konta or Ostapenko, and she'll win like two or three more minimum. I mean she was in 3 of the last 6 Slam Finals, and in these 6 Slams the only not explainable loss was against Rogers at AO17 (maybe an injury).

Three of the losses are pretty much explainable with pressure and that she crumbled in the situation literally fearing to achieve something she didn't before (Konta SW17 for #1, Ostapenko RG17 for #1 (?) and first Slam, Wozniacki for the first Slam in an insanely tight match). Sharapova at Arthur Ashe with (I think) closed roof, was just a matchup nightmare. I hope and believe this won't happen anymore, where she reached everything. Maybe in a match for a career Grand Slam or something.

On the opposite side I don't think Wozniacki will play much longer than the 2019 season, she seems to be pretty satisfied now with her AO title. And for her to win one GS she had to get an all-time cakewalk draw plus massive choking from Fett and Halep. I don't see how it'll be possible that she wins another in the next 1-2 years whereas Halep has like 4-5 years minimum in her.

Re: Who is greater now? Caroline Wozniacki or Simona Halep?

Woz over their careers to date.
Simona at the present time (obviously)
Over the years to come I think Simona will surpass Caro.
