Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

This match wasn't pretty at times but really sometimes that just doesn't matter. She's in the semis!

And I find it interesting that fans here and on GM pointed out that Caro had yet to make a Slam quarterfinal, unlike Cirstea, Lisicki, and Vika. Now Caro's poised to do A LOT better than all of them in a Slam this year!

Funny how momentum can change so quickly in tennis.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3



I have a question

What is the right pronunciation of Caroline Wozniacki`s name? There is a big discussion in one Bulgarian website. In the WTA website she said:

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/p...645058,00.html

But I think this is the "english" pronunciation. On Danish (or Polsih) is it the same ?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

What's up with the bandage on Wozniacki's left thigh?
Is it a new fashion statement? Bondarenko and Oudin also has a bandage on the left thigh and Venus Williams has a bandage on her left knee.

Let her into the game abit in the second set but after 2-2 3-2 there was no question of the outcome.
I agree. I thought Caro was really aggressive most of the first set until near the end of that set. Haven't often seen her play as aggresively as that. But then Mel was really playing badly most of the first set.

When Mel upped her game in the second set - I thought Caro resorted to playing pretty passively. Anyway she won - but it was pretty tight in the second set. Lots of back and forth games from deuce to advantage back to deuce and Caro squeaked through them.

Not quite double bagel, but pretty much took the air out of the crowd lol.

Thanx
Her native pronounciation is similar to French "Caroline" plus a distinct "e" at the end (like the <e> in French "est" or English "the")

In Polish, the last "e" is replaced by an "a" vowel/sound.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

You can hear how Caroline Wozniacki is pronounced in Danish here:



The speaker talks in English but is Dane and pronounce her name in Danish a couple of times in the clip.
Caroline Wozniacki talks in Danish in this clip.
Both her parents came from Poland. Don't know if her name is pronounced different in Polish compared to Danish.

And here's another interview in Danish where you can also hear the pronounciation of Caroline in Danish:


And a third one:


And a radio interview:

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

If you want to read about Caro's USA Eventyr in danish eb.dk is a good place.

bla. skriver de:
DR1 and TV2 řnsker at sende kampen i morgen pĺ Landsdćkkende TV, men Eurosport vil ikke sćlge til en pris de kan betale... Best muligt vill omkring 500.000 se kampen.

Please visit my Caroline website.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I hope Caro is ready tomorrow, biggest match of her career. Straight after Serena's match at 12:30 (5:30 GMT) so expect her on at about 7:30 GMT.

Wish her the BEST of luck!

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Head to head
Wozniacki-Wickmayer: 3-0


They haven't met each other since they turned pro, but have met each other 3 times as juniors, all of them on hardcourt and Wozniacki won all 3 times handing out two bagels and only losing 9 games in 6 sets total: http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...nent=100041250
But it's many years ago when both were very young. At their first match in October 2003 Wozniacki was only 13 years old and 15 years old at the Orange Bowl 2005 girls 18s championship.

Team Leschly ITF Junior Cup - Kolding, Denmark 2003 (hardcourt, indoor) Wozniacki - Wickmayer 6-4, 6-2
Thailand International Junior Tennis Championships 2005 (hardcourt, outdoor) Wozniacki - Wickmayer 6-1, 6-0
Orange Bowl girls 18s championship - Florida, USA 2005 (hardcourt, outdoor) Wozniacki - Wickmayer 6-2, 6-0

Woznaicki ended up winning both the Team Leschly ITF Junior Cup 2003 and Orange Bowl 2005. Vania King won Thailand International Junior Tennis Championships 2005
