I did...and she didn't... unless you want to call bombing out in the first round of the USO significant... I was more talking about positive stuff.
Is Caro's 2012 potentially going to be hard? Yes. Will she lose the #1 ranking along the way? Likely. Will she drop to #7th and win no premier tournament? Hell no.... but like I said, keep dreaming if it makes you happy.
First, losing in the 1st. round of the US is not a drama in itself... you talk about positive stuff well take in consideration the fact that she was able to mentally turn things around that might make her end of the season even more fantastic than Caro... 4 titles including a major and possibly 5 in Tokyo (1 less than the Dane) for a player who barely until this year was even able to make finals of international events consistently...
Second last, Caro is a top 5-7 player... I wouldn't say she willn't be winning Premier events next year that's too strong to support but she certainly will not be winning them as easily as she used to when the competition was inexistent as it was last year.
Remember, Maria out, Kimmie out, Serena out, Venus out, Jankovic lol, Kuznetsova double lol etc... etc... this is not how you win tournaments of that importance.
She Caro winning the YEC ? Just lol, dream, how will she do when she hasn't even beaten a top 5 player this year ? How will she do when the only 2 top 10 players she beat this year (Jankovic, Schiavone) might not even make it in the YEC ?
