Caroline Wozniacki - Fit To Be Queen

Player Profiles
By Hiland Doolittle, January 15th, 2011

Caroline Wozniacki, aka Princess Caroline or The Great Dane or Carolyn The Great, is the top ranked woman in professional tennis. At just 20 years of age, her ascent to the throne has been remarkably spellbinding. With a career singles record of 235-90, this gorgeous 5’10’’ baseline retriever has proven that consistency and persistence still win on the WTA tour.

In the past two years, young Caroline Wozniacki has lead the tour in wins. With a dazzling 67 wins in 2009 and another 62 triumphs in 2010, Caroline Wozniacki has staked her claim and stamped her name on the top spot. To pry it away from her, will not be easy.

One of her great attributes is her ability to put defeat aside and look ahead rather that behind. A consummate competitor, Caroline Wozniacki accepts her rare losses with balance and dignity and takes the same posture in every match. She is passionate about playing tennis, passionate about winning and passionate about style, on and off the court.

She is just as dedicated about her image as she is about her game. Long and lean, Caroline makes a new softer, sexier look on and off the court. Without flaunting her stunning looks, she carries her tennis success and her beauty with the same grace.

Carolyn is coached by her father, Piotr and by Morten Christensen of the National Tennis Center in Denmark. She began playing tennis at aged 7. Growing up, her tennis idols were Martina Hingis and Steffi Graf.

Carolyn led the tour in wins in 2009 and 2010 and also in titles won in 2010 with six. Carolyn won three WTA titles in 2009. She has won 12 tournaments on the WTA tour. Since breaking into the top five in 2009, it was apparent that Carolyn was only moving up.

To some skeptics, her rise to the top parallels the rise of Dinara Safina, who climbed past Serena Williams not so much through her Grand Slam success but through wins at other WTA venues. Safina has since faded away from the top of the tennis world while Carolyn has continued to rise and improve.

However, until the Great Dane wins a Major title, her top billing will always be suspect to some. There is no disputing that Carolyn’s day will come. She is blessed with determination, fleet feet and youth.

If any aspect of her game is suspect, it is her serve, which many pros regard as a work in progress. As the most pure baseliner in the women’s game, when Carolyn perfects the serve, there will be no stopping her.

Look for the young Carolyn to advance deep into the Grand Slams this year. Her strongest showings have come at the Australian Open and at the U.S. Open. If Carolyn claims the title in Melbourne, watch out world! A beautiful Dane will soon be the new face of women’s tennis.
