Expert on Wozniacki: She is the biggest Danish athlete ever'

When Caroline Wozniacki for the January sets its pointer, it is also a goodbye to the largest Danish athlete ever.

It takes tennisekspert Peter Bastiansen, which is extremely impressed by it, Caroline Wozniacki has achieved.

"She is the greatest athlete we ever had at home," says Peter Bastiansen.

"In the field of individual sports, she has achieved the largest ever by a dane, when you consider that she has been number one in the world several times and won a Grand Slam," he says, and continues:

"Yes, won the Bjarne Riis Tour de France, but he had stuffed himself with everything illegal, so I can't take seriously. The european football championship in 1992 was of course huge, but if you look at individual sports, so she's the biggest dane ever – also when you consider the tough competition in tennis," he says.

Peter Bastiansen points at the same time, Wozniacki deserves a lot of respect for that knokle to its merits, with hard work, because she did not according to his assessment, is equipped with a large tennistalent from nature's side.

"Caroline has got the maximum out of his career. Without it sound negative, so I consider her not to be a complete tennis player, as for example Roger Federer, who has the potential to be up there in the verdenstoppen," he says and elaborates:

"Caroline is a good craftsman, which has delivered impressive results in an incomprehensible motivation, an incredible will, physics and fightervilje – and a good advance and the backhand."

"But if you look like a little soberly on it, so it is actually also it. She is not super up by the network, and she runs not and make 40 aces in every battle."

"I take my damn hat off to. I think it is great that one with a minimal potential can reach so far," says Peter Bastiansen, which is vexed over the fact that Caroline Wozniacki has already set the career at the age of 29 years.

He believes that the dane could still be in the verdenstoppen in some years, if she wanted.

"She is a true world star. I therefore also think it is too early, that she stops now. She still has a lot to offer, and I'm sure she could still be among the 20 best players in the world. But it is her decision," he adds.
