Tokyo PPO 2nd round : Caroline Wozniacki forced to retire vs. Aleksandra Wozniak.

Caroline Wozniacki tried to play today but she wasn't in form at all as she suffers from Influenza ( flu ) since a few days. Her father said she was fever free but I don't think at all she was feeling well. She had simply no energy. She should have stayed in bed instead of playing but if she didn't she would have recieved a fine. She was 0-5 behind 0-30. A pitty she was sick because she could go very far in this tournament.

Get well soon, Caroline.

Next tournament should be next week in China ( Beijing ).

US Open Final : Caroline Wozniacki failed again to win a final and maybe the biggest of her life.

Caroline Wozniacki failed again to win a final and not a random one but maybe the final of her life by having a lack of game cleverness and especialy maturity against Kim Clijsters 5-7, 3-6.

People will say : What an achievement for Caroline but I don't as losing a final isn't an achievement at all ! People will say : she's still young, she still can win Grand Slam ? No, don't think like this, 'cause when you have the chance of winning one, you have to be nearly perfect what was not Caroline after having lost her serve at 5-4 and serving for the set.

It's time for Caroline to play like a mature woman, not like a girl who's afraid to achieve big things.

I'm not at all fan of unfinished business : when you lose a final, you can't be considered as someone special : you did what loads of others did : FAILING !

At some sides, I agree with Jose Mourinho who only think about the 1st place ! Ending second or worse is like a huge failure for him.

I'm sorry but when I see Del Potro, what he did against Master Federer, it only makes me angry and angry at Caroline ! You would say I'm too hard with her but I'm never too hard with someone I love !

Caroline, stop of collecting runner's up trophy 'cause at the end we only remember winners, NEVER runner's up !

US Open SF : Caroline Wozniacki defeats Yanina Wickmayer 6-3, 6-3

Can't say much things about it as they only broadcasted the semi final between Kim Clijsters and Serena Williams but I can say Caroline did the job she had to do : eliminate Yanina Wickmayer in straight sets 6-3, 6-3.

Tomorrow's final won't be easy at all for Caroline but I hope she will give the best of herself and not thinking " I'm in a Grand Slam Final, what am I gonna do there ? " : Just play your game, don't be afraid of Kim ( as a Belgian fan of Caroline and patriot, it isn't easy at all to pick who I want to win ) but I will be sad and happy at the same time !

Kom Saa, Caroline ! Give everything you have in your heart and strenght and who knows...

US Open QF : Caroline Wozniacki beat Mélanie Oudin ( USA ) 6-2, 6-2

Melanie Oudin's fairytale ended today by being ousted of the US Open 2009 by Caroline Wozniacki.

It wasn't a spectacular match at all but Caroline played it smart and stayed calm during the whole match. She didn't let Melanie Oudin come into the match what would have been very dangerous for Caroline. To be fair, Oudin showed signs she had no fuel anymore in the motor and the fact she couldn't play the game she used against the Russians like Petrova, Sharapova or Dementieva kinda frustrated her. She had no clue how to respond to Caroline's gamestyle which is totaly different to the Russians. Oudin comitted loads of errors. Also Caroline hadn't a mental breakdown.

In the semis, she will face Belgian Yanina Wickmayer who's another of the big surprises of this US Open. Beware, Caroline because Yanina is a hard hitter ! You'll have to return very well and have a quite better serve than the one of tonight !

Komm saa, Caroline !

US Open 4th round : Caroline Wozniacki upsets Svetlana Kuznetsova ( RUS ) 2-6, 7-6, 7-6.

After a 1st set where Kuznetsova was the better player by winning the set 2-6, Caroline managed to force a tie-break in the 2nd set that she won 7-5.

In the 3rd set, it began not good at all for the Danish prodigy because she was 3-1 behind but after this she fought back and won 4 games in a row to serve then for the match but unfortunatly she was unable to hold serve, Kuznetsova came back to 5-5 ( broke back and then held serve ). It was Caroline to hold serve and she did it 6-5. At 6-5, 30-40 on Svetlana Kuznetsova serve she got her 1st match point but didn't convert it, Kuznetsova held serve : 6-6. It was time for another tie break : Caroline took the lead 3-0 but the Russian came back again 3-3. It would be the last point Svetlana would won of the match because Caroline won the 4 others to win the set and the match after 2h22 of play : 2-6, 7-6, 7-6.

It is the first Quarter Final in a Grand Slam for Caroline where she will face the surprising and "home" girl Mélanie Oudin.

US Open 3rd round : Caroline Wozniacki defeats Sorana Cirstea ( ROM ) 6-3, 6-2

Caroline Wozniacki finaly took her revenge of her two recent loss against one of her best friends Sorana Cirstea against whom she lost at Roland Garros and in Los Angeles earlier this year.

It was easier than expected and with this victory she reaches again the 4th round of a Grand Slam where she will face Svetlana Kuznetsova where Caroline won't be the favorite. I hope though she will put a good fight and why not causing an upset but for that beside the good fact, she will have to play at her best.

In doubles Caroline and Sorana will meet the Williams Sisters.

US Open 2nd round : Caroline Wozniacki trashes Petra Martic ( CRO ) 6-1, 6-0.

It really wasn't a difficult match at all for the young Dane but there's still two problems : she got caught way too much by dropshots and also the too few winners hit during this match. The positive point is that she didn't hit many errors.

I still don't think Caroline will get far in the US Open with such gamestyle. Even it was an easy match, Caroline was at time not agressive enough, I think. There are opportunities to close the points out earlier by coming to the net but yet she stays at the baseline.

A tougher test awaits Caroline in the next round where she will play against her double partner Sorana Cirstea ( ROM ) ! Won't talk about revenge anymore 'cause I know what happened after : another disappointment !

US Open 1st round : Caroline Wozniacki pushed Galina Voskoboeva ( KAZ ) 6-4, 6-0

Easy win you would say ? I don't think so at all ! Caroline didn't look relaxed at all during the whole match despite having the match in hands ! But how did she get the match in hands ? Thx to her opponent hitting tons of errors and not able to control her nerves ! Understandable when you have no confidence in yourself.

I disliked the way Caroline let Voskoboeva dictate the match ! Caroline hardly took the initiatives. She simply was the passive Caroline full force, thinking only to defend, never to attack her opponent !

A win is a win, you would say but I'm not happy with such wins ! It doesn't give me confidence at all about a possible breakthrough in a Grand Slam ! She has to let for good the passivness at home in Denmark : I need the agressive, " I take the initiatives " , " You won't dictate the match , I will " Caroline so badly. Being so insecure and hitting so few winners, will never help her !

Caroline, pls. change your mentality and be much more confident in yourself ASAP !!!

US Open time for Caroline Wozniacki and also Stella McCartney clothes !

Caroline is at the last Grand Slam of the season at New-York for the US Open ! The US Open means also the start of wearing the exclusive Stella McCartney line.

In the doubles tournament, Sorana Cirstea ( ROM ) will be again her parnter like she was at Wimbledon. It seems they love to play with eachother.
