^ Roger Cup, Western & Southern Open, New Haven Then U.S. Open but i think should ask for WC ask either Bank of the West Classic or Mercury Insurance Open
Thanks for the reply,Trey, but I ain't feelin' your plan there.Even with Caro's level of above-average physical fitness, this is a no-win agenda, in my view.If Caro manages to go deep at RC, Cincy and NH, she'll have very little left for the USO.If she somehow managed to reach the 2nd week,she'd have played 1 month straight w/o rest and would be running on fumes, almost.Petra had a similar lead-up last year(and gave a snotty, piss-ant, defensive reply
--prior to the USO--when a reporter politely raised doubts about the viability of such scheduling), and everyone saw how she COMPLETELY ran out of gas in the 4th Round vs. Marion after the 1st set.To be fair,Caro has FAR better stamina and doesn't struggle with asthma, but playing 3 straight lead-ups w/o rest is an almost guaranteed losing formula.
In the event that Caro is beaten early in all of the lead-ups, as she was prior to RG, she'll at least get some needed rest yet she won't establish very solid form heading into the Slam.If she adds San Diego, then she'll play FOUR straight lead-ups before the USO, which will be even MORE terrible.Stanford wouldn't be so bad IF she had a break at some point, even the following week when SD takes place.
I respect those of you who don't like dishonest withdrawals, even though they've become so accepted within the WTA's No-accountability, Enabler sub-culture.So,if Caro doesn't invent some plausible-sounding-yet-phony excuse for backing out of RC,Cincy or NH, she can just candidly admit that she needs the rest and didn't schedule well,at first,and then withdraw w/o pretense.She might get fined(which would just be more hypocrisy from the Allaster mob), but she would survive financially
