Latent heat: Caroline Wozniacki


There hasn't been any remarkable Danish player on WTA Tour history, but this may change soon as they have one of the most promising players nowadays.
Along with Tamira Paszek and Alize Cornet, Caroline Wozniacki is one of the most talented players of 1990 generation. She had a great junior career, highlighted on 2006 with a title in Wimbledon and runner-up in Australian Open. On 2007 she played with the big girls and achieved two 75,000$ ITF titles and semifinal in WTA Tokyo, climbing from #237 to #64 in WTA rank.


But this year she wants to step into the spot light and has started with a brilliant appareance on Australian Open, where she has reached Last 16 beating Gisela Dulko, 21st seed Alona Bondarenko and german newcomer Sabine Lisicki en route. There she lost to WTA #3 Ana Ivanovic.

Polish descent, Caroline is tall, blonde and blue eyed. She's got a good-girl look and is one of the cuttest girls on WTA Tour, so it is expected that her fanbase and popularity will growth as she keeps on climbing on the rankings.

I'm from Denmark and I fully agree with you that Caroline Wozniacki is a star on the rise. When you talk about her "nordic beauty" you're slightly wrong, though. Not that I think Caroline isn't pretty, but though she's born and raised in Denmark her ethnic descent isn't Nordic. Both her parents are Polish.

Hi Torben!
Thank you for your comment, you're totally right, her parents are Polish so her ethnic isn't Nordic.
In Spain we are not used to blonde, blue-eyed and tall girls so we relate these characteristics to Nordic, who usually come here for holidays

Well,

I am from north Spain and we have a number of blond blue-eyed and tall girls of Spanish origin. So I guess that is not a very good excuse, Juan.

In any case, Polish or Nordic, she is beautiful and will be a great player pretty soon.

ok, ok, it was just an excuse, it is already corrected though
