She acquitted herself very well in both of those events. She's still only 19, yet she's #2 in the world and her results are improving in those bigger events you say she only gets "bullied" in. Like I always say, you don't have to like her game, but you should give her credit where it's due for being consistent and not being a headcase like 90% of the tour is these days. Including your main squeeze Vika, but that's neither here nor there.
I like Wozniacki but she needs more power in her game, more point finishing weapons. Right now when she plays Venus, Henin, Serena, Clijsters, or even the top players not as good as them, the match is not in her hands with her current game. Look at the U.S Open final, Kim played a bad 1st set and still won it, then cruised in the 2nd. I think at the WTA Championships she was playing Venus and Venus was making alot of errors and still won easily. To credit Wozniacki she forces alot of those errors with great consistenty, defense, and smarts. She is like the new Hingis in that regard. However she is never going to win a major title with her current game. It is amazing she even make a slam final with her current playing style. She is talented and young enough to improve, but she has to take a close look at her current game and realize that this defense-only approach is not going to even get her any further than she currently is, in fact she wont be holding her position for long at all without some major changes.
