Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

Yes I'll need those Absolut Vodka, to watch Caro on clay

DownInAHole, Aga reached Wimbledon's final last year, still she's far better on hard courts. But I see you have made up your mind on the issue, so I won't try to convince you any more

It is all about the sample size. On clay Caroline plays a slam, two "big" events (Madrid and Rome) and usually one or two smaller events. On grass it is just a slam and (sometimes) Eastbourne. How can you do a fair comparison between the two surfaces when she plays so much more on clay?

For me Brussels is the tiebreaker. She defeated the defending Roland Garros champion, who would go on to be in the final again, on clay. Can you imagine Caroline defeating pre 2011 Venus, Serena or Petra on grass? Okay, comparing Schiavone to those three may not be fair but I just think her game is better suited to clay than grass. On clay having a weak serve doesn't hurt you as much as it does on grass.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 11

Sometimes it seems to me when Caro has a good result or a few good results that she thinks her game is in a better state than it actually is. Like after the end of last fall's tennis season, Caro took an extended vacation and came back playing worse than she did in the fall more like how she played for most of last year.

Yes, the bolded part is the key, , I do agree that Caro's game should be much better on clay than on grass but to be honest with the inconsistency she's been showing these last two years, she has zero chance on both surfaces.

Those damn Sveedis. Why North Korea is getting all the attention when the Sveedis are secretly taking over everything is beyond me.

Either way, I'm ready for the clay season to begin!
