The demise of the women’s game

Over the past few years, women’s tennis has lacked players that remain dominant for prolonged periods of time. It is becoming increasingly difficult to predict the winner of Grand Slam events on the women’s side. On the men’s side, it is hard to move away from the likes of Nadal, Djokovic, Federer and Murray.

2011 has seen a myriad of female tennis players win the biggest titles in tennis, none of whom seem capable of dominating on a consistent basis. A prime example of this is World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki. The Dane  has won 17  WTA titles, none of which are Grand Slams, which raised questions on whether she deserves to be the holder of the top mantle.

This year’s Wimbledon Championships presents the greatest chance to break her Grand Slam drought, with the absence of Clijsters and the elimination of Zvonareva. Her failure to capitalise will not only disappoint her, but become perceived as a player that doesn’t have the ability to win on the big stage.
