Would Caro have done better...

In majors with the actual technologies and stuff... in the actual field and baseline power play... IF they were played in their very first versions or almost :

>> AO : Grass from 1905 to 1987 (speed ).

>> RG : Red clay since 1891.

>> Wimbledon : Fast grass from 1877 to around the 2000s.

>> US Open (1) : Grass from 1887 to 1974 (speed ).

>> US Open (2) : Green clay between 1975 and 1977... though it only played on 2yrs. but just to know.

If no who would have done better from the actual field !!? Would the power-hitters from the base-line have a clearer advantage over her !!?

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Re: Would Caro have done better...

Red clay in the 1890's would have been good.

She would have been a non-entity struggling to make ends meet in any of the above options.

Another Caro thread. That's exactly what GM needs at the moment.

Re: Would Caro have done better...

Why do people who hate/ doesn't like Caro open one thread after the other? .. Is it so you can then complain there's too many Caro threads?

She would have done about the same, or so I would think.

Re: Would Caro have done better...

This is thread about Caro, but I don't understand why this thread was opened?

The answer is one: We don't know and we will never find out. The reason is simple: we can't back to the past.

This isn't about going back in the past... it's just to know if her game would have adapted better to the surfaces used in the majors almost 20 to 25 or more years aback...

Ok maybe I kind of purposely oriented the question to Caro but as she the #1 and expected to win a major... you're free to bring in any player you want...

Re: Would Caro have done better...

Why dont the mods open a whole new section and call it "Caro love and hate threads"

Atleast we can stroll thru the GM without seeing all these Caro threads.

Re: Would Caro have done better...

OK I will try for a serious answer. Since prior to 1974 the three majors except for RG were played on grass and since there seems to be a consensus amongst Caro/haters; Caro/detractors and Caro/fans that Wimbledon would be the least likely major for her to win; then ergo it stands to reason that the answer to this poll is RG. Such answer will be fortified if Caro does win the FO this year and flounders at Wimbledon. Of course if she does win Wimbledon as well all bets are off. BTW in case you are wondering I define a Caro detractor as one who does not cheer for Caro but at least has reasonable, logical and/or persuasive rationale for being so.

Oh I'm bad I had overlooked the three year period of USO on green clay and since she just won Charleston that probably is the correct choice but I voted before I noticed that fact.

I think she would do well with old wood rackets. Hard to over power her.
