THE 50 GREATEST PLAYERS OF THE OPEN ERA (W): NO. 24 CAROLINE WOZNIACKI

24. CAROLINE WOZNIACKI Years played: 2007– Titles: 29
Major titles: 1 (2018 Australian Open)

“Adding a Grand Slam to my CV is what caps it off,” a grinning Wozniacki said after she won the 2018 Australian Open. “And really, I think, shows my career as a whole.”

Wozniacki isn’t last on our list, but she was a last-minute entry. While her accomplishments before this season had been impressive—none more so than the 67 weeks she spent at No. 1 in 2010 and 2011, and her 587 wins—the fact that she hadn’t won a major title was enough to keep her out of the running. But as Wozniacki herself says, now that she has torn the Grand Slam monkey off her back in Melbourne, it’s easier to appreciate just how good she has been since joining the tour as a 16-year-old in 2007. It’s also possible to imagine, now that she’s No. 1 in the world again, how good this sneaky-young 27-year-old could still become.

At first glance, Wozniacki doesn’t appear to do much more than hit the ball over the net and hope that her opponents get nervous and miss—and she has won her share of matches that way. But she’s more than just a wallboard. She’s fast, agile and athletic; few players track more balls down. She’s an underrated tactician; she spreads the court and moves the ball around, while rarely taking any unnecessary risks or beating herself. Most important, she’s a natural competitor who never throws in the towel mentally; if you’re going to beat her, you’re going to have to keep doing it until the final point is over. It’s fitting that on her way to winning her maiden major, Wozniacki would come back from 1-5 down in the third set, and save two points, in the second round.

Wozniacki contemplated retirement in 2016. Now she’s shown what can happen when you never say die.

Defining Moment: Wozniacki trailed Simona Halep 3-4 in the third set of the Australian Open final, and she looked tired. But with her best chance at a Slam in danger of slipping away, she found the corners with her ground strokes, and stole it away with the last three games.

No Sloanie letdown for Caro.
______________

Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki continued her winning run with a dominant victory in her opening match at the St Petersburg Open.

The Dane needed 67 minutes to beat Russian Anastasta Potapova 6-0 6-1 to reach the last eight.

@ Grossefavourite:
 
Of course: for Sloane, winning a slam was thicking off the first box of the to-do list (and having everyone expecting to deliver on other boxes)
For Caroline, it was the last box... all done, all that comes is extra.

@ Graveller:
 
Is that why Sloanie hasn't won a match since, not even in fed cup?

Some react weird on winning a slam: some want to win too much, others become afraid to lose, and for some it is a combination of both.
