    If it werent for her hotness would prefer not to watch Wozzies matches. She has no real weapons apart from being a really consistent pusher. Would like to see her being more aggressive.

    I don't think many people would agree with this.

    I like her style of play.
    A refreshing antidote to all those dumb ball-bashers.

    She's certainly less aggressive than a lot of players, but I wouldn't call her a pusher at all.

    The thing is, her game of making minimal errors, keeping the ball in play, and hitting some timely aggressive shots works against most players. Unfortunately, it has not yet worked against the very top players at the most important times.

    she played jankovic last year in indian wells and she was the defensive player!

    caroline's game reminds me slightly of arantxa sanchez-vicario. but arantxa used a lot more "junk" balls like drop shots, slices and moonballs. plus, arantxa actually made the effort to get in to the net. perhaps caroline could learn to do more of the junk balling and net rushing style as well.

    I wouldn't consider her a pusher in the slightest. She is very good at being consistent and patient and waiting for her opportunity. I don't consider that pushing at all. I very much disagree that she should be more aggressive. Why, so she can make more errors.

    If she becomes more aggressive, she'll become another ball-basher.

    She's a grinder like Nadal. Not much else to say.

    wow. Never thought having an alarmingly high level of CONSISTENCY would build so much disdain.

    Her job is to win before it is to be more entertaining to people who don't low-risk tennis.
