Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12
First of all, Giorgi is much better than 136 in the world. A ball basher she may be, but she's far from a brainless one. Good movement, good power and technique from both wings, good at the net, never panics and not a choke in sight at crucial moments. So well done is all I can say.
As for Caroline, well, I'm more disappointed for her than in her really. She must know that this was the draw of a lifetime and that it's unlikely that she will ever get an opportunity like this again. I think she competed well. She was probably too passive, but she's always reacting rather than acting against power hitters when they are on - nothing new there. The big problem (as always) is that forehand of course. She'll never get back to the elite as long as it stays the way it is. It's a really huge liability that will be exploited again and again. When you hit it as short and paceless like Woz all the opponent needs to do is step in and put it away, or at the very least it makes it easy for them to take the initiative.
So yeah, very disappointed, but not angry at Caroline. She's just not good enough to do any better, that's all.
