Flavia - Caro 3:6 6:0 7:6 Beijing 2011

The difference was that Flavia studied her opponent thoroughly before the match:
- occupied Caro's forehand with good angles
- lured her to the net
- attacked her 1st serve
- gave her a lot of tasks to solve
- capitalized from Caros lack of confidence
- avoided long backhand rallys (unlike in Montreal 2010)
- didn't play high topspin on Caro's backhand (unlike in Montreal 2010)
- made her own full-court game less forseeable (unlike in Doha 2011)

Welcome, Flavia, to the "Great Champion" club

With her “Step out of the way, boys” strut and her intemperate mid-match gesticulating, this woman is a natural solo act.
