She sure did. She defeated Elena D 1-6 6-2 6-3 in what sounds like a pretty poor match. She is now 2 wins away from world #1.
A lot has been made of her style of play, but at the end of the day it is winning her so many matches. She is not going to change it, and I donâ€™t see why she should. Tennis isnâ€™t about entertaining the crowd - itâ€™s a business, a job, and itâ€™s all about winning.
My problems arenâ€™t really with her anyway, but rather with the rest of the tour. In any other era, Wozniacki wouldnâ€™t even be in the top 5, let alone on the verge of becoming the #1 player. She just isnâ€™t THAT good, and it frustrates me that they have managed to let a player with so many limitations to her game stand at the helm of the WTA. In 2008, Wozniacki was beating everyone she was “supposed” to beat, but then she would meet a top player and she would inevitably lose. Usually in straight sets. The only difference between 2008 and 2010 is that the players “supposed” to beat her are too busy nursing injuries or losing in the 2nd round.
But again, that isnâ€™t a cheap-shot at Wozniacki, she deserves a world of respect for being able to stay so consistent at a time when all of the players around her are falling apart at the seams. Congrats to her.
