The WTA Finals is a whirlwind of momentum and for Caroline Wozniacki what was a poor defenceless performance in her first match completely pulled it together as she dumped Petra Kvitova in a three set battle leaving the Czech number one on the verge of ending her season early.
What I liked about Wozniacki’s performance was that I felt it immediately. The feet were moving and she seemed to bounce around the court with confidence and belief something I wouldn’t say I have seen in a big match since she won the Australian Open.
I have also watched Wozniacki play and what got me watching her in the first place was the way she digs in. I love someone who just doesn’t give up.
Re-directing and rebounding traffic is one of her strengths. Her defence is one of the best on the tour and whether she is playing good or bad it is still one of the best. However there is a big difference between being defensive and being an effective defensive player.
Wozniacki redirected the ball so well throughout the whole match, whether she ushered that forehand cross court or down the line or flattened out that backhand she turned up and her place is not secure yet but this was a big step in her bid to defend her title.
