TENNISINSIDEOUT.COM PLAYER PROFILE
Name: Caroline Wozniacki
Goes by: Caro, Wozza, Karolina, “Sunshine,” “The Golden Retriever”
Val has named her: “My Polish Princess” (She shares this royal rank with Agnieszka Radwańska, but has precedence.). Yes, we realize she is Polish-Danish.
Birthday: July 11, 1990
In a nutshell: Caroline Wozniacki is known for her expert retrieval and defense skills. With her trademark hunched-over run, she doggedly tracks down every ball, using every trick in the book to keep that ball in play. She absorbs pace like a sponge, she lobs and dropshots and whips spinning backhands crosscourt. She is fast, athletic, and strong, hitting shot after shot without running out of steam. Fans love the positive attitude and well of determination that gets her through tough matches.
A former #1, Caro has amassed an impressive 22 titles. The lack of a super powerful weapon has made it difficult for her to break through that final wall of big-hitters to a Slam win. Through a succession of part-time coaches, in addition to the stalwart presence of her father Piotr, the Dane has endeavored to improve her strategizing as well as developing a more powerful forehand. If she finds that perfect combo of defense and offense, that Slam win should be right around the corner.

Wozza practices hard and puts a lot of miles in on the court. She was praised even more highly for her fitness when she crazily decided to run in the November 2014 NYC marathon.

And Val will always love her for this observational tweet…
Is it me, or are @RafaelNadal shorts getting shorter and shorter? Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, it’s just an observation
