And no one can say she has a good backhand when she hardly ever uses it as a weapon.

I am still in a bad mood about this missed opportunity, so maybe I'm piling it on. I need to get it all out, and then I'll be back to being delusional about my expectations for Caro.
That was one area she played very well. I want her to play that way every match at the net and not the way she played there against Halep at NH. That's not where she lost the match yesterday. One stretch low for a forehand volley was superb. How can she be a sitting duck when her stats are that she won 7 out of 10 (70%) of points at the net?

We are taking the eye of the ball over-worrying about the 3 out of 10 points she didn't win there when there are such major problems elsewhere with her forehand which was breaking down worse than ever when put under serious pressure. She made as many UEs on her forehand as Giorgi!

Things falling apart close to potentially winning the match suggests nerves to me. We've seen her falter to varying degrees when she's gotten close to winning on a lot of occasions over the past couple years.
It has been pointed out before but I believe that she is working hard but maybe not on the right things. Fitness is important but it is also important to improve your game. Her focus seems to be too much on the former and not enough on the latter.

I dont know what the answer is, but going to Brazil & Colorado at the end of 2012 seemed to hurt her game in 2013
I thought she should have taken losing the #1, early in 2012, very seriously. Thats when Jankovic & Ivanovic fell apart. Caro did also, losing her 1st match to Safarova then early to Goerges.
That was a really important time in her career. Now it might be too late. I cant think of anyone who was so good, fell off for years without a major injury, and got good again. Not happened in this era.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

first game was already high quality, Caro looks willing to hit harder and being aggressive...Flavia is a great defender though...shame that with this rain delay I'll need to leave after a few games probably

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Well played by Caro. But very poor start by Pennetta.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

rain again come on, I need to leave for lectures in 45 minutes

anw I am pleased with what I am seeing, she's forcing Pennetta to play on a high rhythm and she's hitting the ball very well so far

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

There will go some time before the match can continue, they say on danish TV, as it still rain hard and courts needs to get dryed when the rain stops...
