Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Can't believe she did it. I remember being pretty worried Cirstea would send her out...and now she's in a Slam Final. The only time I'd say Caro got "lucky" in her draw was for the SF - there's no excuse for no seeded player coming out of that section.

I just hope she can play well against Kim, hold her serve, and makes it competitive.

Carolne Woznacki finished at a tied 5th place, but only the 3 highest ranked players can earn an US Open bonus, so no bonus for Woz.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

Well I think Caro is more than a little overmatched today but as long as she plays a competitive match I'll be incredibly happy.

I posted this just a few week ago btw , I didn't know I'd be that wrong :

Yes! Good luck tonight Caro! I am bummed I won't be able to see her play--I don't have cable or satellite and they're not airing it here in the US on CBS due to the President's spiel on health care reform which they're airing on 60 Minutes. I'd rather watch tennis and this is a really big deal with Caro making her first Grand Slam Final. But, GO CARO !!

I am sure there will be a stream, check the OOP Scoring threads. ETC

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I'm just so proud of our little Cryoline Pushniaki!

When she had reached the quarters, I was really happy, as she had finally gotten past the 4th round. And now she's in the finals! Unbelieveable, isn't it? She hasn't had a tough road to the final, but who cares? She's beaten the players who beat the big names, so I'm really, really pleased.

I really feel bad for Caro (and Yanina) that almost no one watched their match! The weather totally ruined everything, and the drama at the end of the Kim-Serena match took away all the attention from Caro-Yanina. She was really nice about it in her interview, though! Here's what she said:

Q. Playing in that stadium where it was maybe 300, 400 people in there and it was empty, was that easy or hard for you?

CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Maybe actually it was easier, because, you know, you didn't really feel the thing that you're in the semifinals. You didn't feel the pressure too much that actually you're so close to being in a finals. Only two matches away.

So I mean, I understand the people. We were waiting all day to get to play, and the weather really didn't want everything like we wanted it today. But we got to play, and I'm very happy.


On one hand, the Caro-Kim final is amazing for me as they are my two big favourites, but on the other hand it's a really bad situation as I want both of them to win badly -- Caro's in her first slam final ever, and Kim has just come back from a long break. I don't want any of them to lose. I am definitely going to watch it, though! I'm really confused about when they're playing. The official OOP says they play after the Federer-Djokovic match, which starts 16:30 local time, but I've heard lots of people and websites say that the match is at 21:00 local time?

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

I haven't posted on the board for some time, but I think this is a perfect timing to come back and congratulate all Caro fans with her first GS final!

Honestly I didn't see it coming at all after mediocre results in summer hard court tournaments. Of course draw turned out to be very good, but she had to take her opportunity, beat an elite player (Sveta) in a slam and here she is! And I like her chances against Kim a lot more than against Serena. Good luck!

#6 if she loses, #4 if she wins.

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."

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 3

The ranking infor after US Open is even put at her Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caroline_Wozniacki
Quote:
She is the first Danish woman to reach a Grand Slam final, where she will face unseeded Kim Clijsters. The runner-up showing will allow her to reach a career high ranking of No. 6, and if she wins the title she will rise to No. 4 in the world.
