Bad idea. John McEnroe said that without him umpires and lines people would still be balding 75 year olds with glasses, like they were when he was playing. And he's right. Without guys like him and Connors scaring the living daylights out of the powers that be the quality of the officiating never would have improved like it has. Caroline is merely doing her bit in keeping their mind on the job.

I dont know about New Haven, because she's had real success there & at the USO after it. But Sydney doesnt seem too good for her.
I've heard somewhere that she decided to play in Brisbane next year.

I hope it's true. Not only would it be a physical advantage to have a week off between the warm-up and AO, it also means the points she gains actually take effect before AO. If she's close behind Stosur in the rankings, winning Brisbane could move her up a spot before the AO seeding/draw is done.
Of course this closeness in the rankings depends on Stosur playing little or not at all in Istanbul and Caro winning Sofia, so I probably shouldn't make too many plans for Caro until the season is actually over. And with Serena and Masha playing there, it won't be easy pickings!

Oh, so Serena and Sharapova are there too? That's going to be a challenge. But Stosur was also a challenging opponent and Caro passed the test . I for one would like to see another Caro-Serena encounter.

Re: Caro goals for 2013 suggestions thread

Here's my minimal goals for Caro's 2013 season:

1 title
top 10 year end ranking
minimum of the 3rd round at all the grand slams (barring special circumstances)

Here's what I'm hoping for from Caro in 2013:

2 titles
qualify for the YEC
quarters at 2 grand slams
some improvement in her game which perhaps vaults her back into grand slam contention
beating a lot lower ranked players in a less dramatic/stressful fashion

Captain Matthew Gideon: I may have an idea.
Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.

Re: Caro goals for 2013 suggestions thread

Revised Caro goals for 2013 :

1) Win a tennis match.
2) Win two tennis matches.
3) Win more tennis matches, than losing.
4) Stay inside top 20 (or maybe that's too ambitious? Goals have to be challenging, but also realistic).

Agree. These are probably the only goals wished for in this thread that anyone - even I - could achieve on a tennis court!
