Dubai 3rd round : Caroline Wozniacki ousted by Shahar Peer 2-6, 5-7.

There was no coverage of the match but what i've seen of the statistics of the match, Caroline played a very disappointing match to say the least ! She faced breakpoints at each of her service games and only held twice on ten service games played during the match. That's not what you should expect at all from the n°3 in the world ! 

Caroline only won 2 out 10 service games!!
Aces: 3
Double faults: 4
1st serve %: 60
1st serve points won: 19/45 (42%)
2nd serve points won: 11/30 (37%)
Total service points won: 30/75 (40%)

Shahar Pe'er only won 5 out of 10 service games.
Aces: 0
Double faults: 4
1st serve %: 61
1st serve points won: 22/43 (51%)
2nd serve points won: 12/28 (43%)
Total service points won: 34/71 (48%)

Disastrous : that's the only word that come to mind when I see such woeful  stats ! 

Where did she had her head at ? I'm sorry but this season so far she didn't show she's her n°3 in the world spot worthy ! She only showed so far a top 20 or 25 player performances : that thx to her 4th round at the AO otherwise it would have been worse ! Where's her game of last year ? But for me, I stay put, she distracts herself too much of the real job with the sponsors bull**** ( Rolex the last sponsoring stunt ), with budying up with other players while she had already enough excellent friends on tour ( Viktoria Azarenka, the Radwanska sisters, Sorana Cirstea to name some ) and some other stuff I don't know because I just am a fan ! I'm sorry, Caroline, you ain't on the right path ! Time to wake up, getting back to the real work and perform like the n°1 in the world you dream to become one day because the downfall never is far at all !

Dubai 2nd round : Caroline Wozniacki defeats Dominika Cibulkova 6-2, 7-6

Didn't watch the match so I won't be able to give you my impressions. But it seems she played well to qualify for the next round. She fought back in the 2nd set though : she was 5-1 and 40-30 behind in that set. In the 1st round she didn't play as she was BYE.
