26/16 Woz

43/46 Bartoli


Are these true stats?

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

finally she wins a match by winning it, not a gifted one (ok let's forget of the DF)...in the end she got the MPs by being aggressive enough...I am overall happy about that

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

This whole business with Maradona is a bit creepy.

Whew. Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! Caro holds for 6-4 3rd set at Ad Caro from 30-15 to 30-30 to 40-30 to 40-40. Great job Caro. The match was 2 hours 33 minutes long.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

Caro listened to me and served three great serves from deuce side. 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in 2h33m. It's only the second time this year Caro has managed to come back from a first set loss to win the match. First time was the Lisicki match, but while that was mostly a case of the opponent selfdestructing, this time Caro FOUGHT. It wasn't a flawless performance by any stretch of the imagination - both serves and FHs swung between good and weak (more often the latter) - but I liked Caro's mental state today, especially when down 0-2 in last set.

I like her Ws/UEs stats but 1st serve percentage and BP conversation could be better.
(14 breaks in 27 games, more than half!)

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

She didn't hit oodles of winners but she was able to come up with some very nice ones on some key points.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

It was a struggle, but she won. Recently there were struggles against lesser players than Bartoli where she lost, so all's well that end well. 26-16 winner/UE ratio is very good. Loved the exchange of gifts with the football genius.

Caro

This time she played well in key moments in the 3rd set. Great winner/UE ratio
