Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Good win in the end!


and good DR shows the tennis matches today when other danes don't was in the coverage, but that commentator did a bad job, the worst mistake, "Caro has been No. 1 nearly 1 year..."

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Seriously? I thought she's such a big star in Denmark, how is it that they don't get her basic career data right?

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

2nd round will be tougher. At least she won a grass match in 2012. But Caro has to play better to get further
Racket tension did look more like the old style. Her forehand is scary inconsistent. A better player than AK will work her forehand over all match

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

I'm pretty sure she's using the same string tension as at Wimbledon. Either the balls are heavier, or the air is, but everyone was serving about 10km/h slower than at Wimbledon, at least, according to my quick stat comparison.

Yah, it would have been annoying to go 0-3 on grass this year. Some players who are a bit sucky on grass had won matches on it which bothered me.

I'm wondering how much of the forehand is based on confidence.

I wish she had taken about a week less off for vacation after Wimbledon (I was thinking this pre-tournament). A 2 1/2 week vacation seems unwarranted based on her results as of late. She could have used the extra week of training.

I'm not concerned about time off before the Olympics. If she's going to do anything big this year, its after grass season. So we'll see whats going on when she gets to that.
I was for going to play Stanford/San Diego, but if she has an ankle problem, rest it during grass season.

Overall, today didnt look good, but had a very beatable opponent. Since she hasnt won a match since May, maybe she was rusty

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

I only saw the first set live tonight, and while she looked very nervous and seemed to be saving her ankle, I was pretty confident of the win.

I too want to hear the reaction re the raquet because the weight was gone but it sounded as lightly strung as before. She can't be having to deal with stick issues all the time.

Hopefully she gets to grow into the tournament.

A Win is a Win.

Mary and Frede were making noise in the crowed tonight.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Caro will play Wickmayer on CC tomorrow, last match (around 6pm local).

Good news, the schedule is already way behind due to the rain today but she'll get her match in no matter what

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

CC again, that's pretty good I was afraid she'd be scheduled in some random court.
I don't have a good feeling about this match, but I'm hoping she's more relaxed than yesterday and she can play better. Please Caro, no drama for once this season

OMG OMG La Borz is on CC again. It's a scandal.

Clijsters and S.Williams only on Court 1 and V.Williams on Court 2.

I must immediately go and make a GM thread

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

I think its an advantage to play her on Centre. She had some close matches with Yanina, so on grass, it will probably be close too

Well, in all fairness, it is a tad surprising. Looks like the Olympics organizers like her, ranking and status wise Serena would have been the more likely option... but let' not complain shall we

Frede and Mary in the royal box... Can't have top quality fans sluming it in the stans on court 1.

I know who Frede (Nielsen right?) is. But who's Mary?
