Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Thanks!

The juniors head to head gives Caro a psychological edge. Both were then girls though and are now big, strong finely toned and conditioned women. I think Yanina will move into at least the top 15 and stay there a long time if she can keep her emotions in check. She has great groundstokes and hits big. She also has a very good second serve which really impresses me. How many players around have these powderpuff second serves that the likes of Serena and Maria get quick, easy points attacking? But Wickmayer has a great kick second serve. Caro though has peaked at the right time. I look for her to win but this could be a very tough match.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I found it hard to predict the match against Oudin because I wasn't sure how steady her baseline game was (as it turned out, nowhere near steady enough). The shape of the match against Wickmayer will be somewhat easier to predict.
YW knows she can't outsteady Caro from the baseline and that doesn't seem to be her style anyway. 'Agressive baseliner' would be my description. She has some powerful groundstrokes, her forhand in particular is good, and she isn't afraid to follow up a hard, deep stroke by going to the net where she's solid. Her serve (and second serve) is good, ,though not Lisicki hard. She also uses drop shots on occasion. She looks very fit and hasn't played too long matches so unlike Kuznetsova she can probably go toe to toe with Caro in a long match when it comes to stamina.
Her major weakness is probably her lack of steadiness and a fair amount of UEs. Her returns aren't scary, either, even on second serves. She's not the fastest mover on the court with that long body of her. It's a little hard to determine from watching just one match, but I have a suspicion she's not one of the brightest players on the tour; she made some bad choices on more than one occasion.
The most annoying aspect of her game is her grunting, but I don't think Caro will mind too much.

I would say Caro is a 60-40 favorite

Luxembourg 2016 & Auckland 2018
Madison Brengle: "I'd rather chew on a pinecone than play this match (against Wozniacki)."
Nicole Melichar: "Do you want me to go find you one?"

Nicole Melichar: "I'm really happy I don't have to play against her (Wozniacki)."
Madison Brengle: "Oh, thank you, that makes me feel so much better."

One popular sportsbook I just checked has Caroline as a big favorite, -450 meaning one has to risk 450 to win 100. +300 for the Wickster which means a risk of 100 wins 300.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

A funny/ironic thing about today's match; the same day USO started I set up a date for tonight. I must admit I didn't think at the time that Caro would make it as far as the SF. I rarely date and now when I finally do it'll be right on top of the most important match of Caro's life so far! I'm in a conflict of loyalty between two girls!

That is a real conflict of interests.
Couldn't you get your date to watch the match with you.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

It'd be disappointing/frustrating for Caro to lose to Wickmayer and once again this season be part of a young lower ranked player's breakthrough. Hopefully Caro wins and puts my concerns at ease.

Well at least it gives them a chance of actually playing tonight. And now they've pushed the time back to 2:30PM.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

After Söderling's loss vs Federer, you are the hope of the Nordic countries! Come on Caro, you will win this, wherever and whenever you play!

Furthermore I think the WTA Tour sucks!
