It seems like the whole adidas team, Ivanovic, Wozniacki, Pavlyuchenkova.. they all seem mentally fragile
Don't know enough about Pavly as a person to evaluate her mental state,but you'll agree,of course,that Caroline's accomplishments dwarf the Russian's for now.The comparison to the Serb only offers superficial similarities.Caroline never said that she thought she'd have some magic carpet ride as the Queen of Tennis when she reached #1...and she didn't check out on her career once she discovered that it was a job--hard work--and not merely a game(can provide quote,if needed).Caroline also hasn't slutted her way around the celebrity male circuit,even firing faithful assistants on multiple occasions when a lowlife scum bf didn't like them.As for the weaknesses themselves,the Serb is feeble to the core b/c she utterly lacks any character or,as with other spoiled,pampered children,she's unable to face serious adversity on the court where her enablers can't make excuses for her during matches.On the other hand,Caroline--as you and others have pointed out--has valid reasons for struggling with her confidence at the moment.She can't cling too tightly to the style of play that first brought her success,but she hasn't quite found her footing with a newer style,either.Still,there's not much evidence of a strong person fundamentally "becoming" weak,barring a huge personal catastrophe(e.g.,Seles' stabbing),so we have at least some justification for hoping for something better,especially with a new coaching situation

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
