Her FH is weak. Especially when Caro goes CC you can see how little power there is on her FH shot. And when the opponent is under pressure, she usually just needs to block the ball back with decent depth (like halfway between service line and baseline) to Caro's FH in order to neutralize the point.
She rarely gets the upper hand straight from her serve. The power is acceptable but she doesn't mix it up enough and she's too easy to read.
She rarely dares to go for a winner on ROS, even when the serve is weak. 90% of the time she hits CC or down the middle instead of chancing a DTL shot.
There's plenty of problems including that was the norm, she plays some good tennis this whole slump.
There was nothing unusual about this loss. She played well in spurts, had chances to win. She was also broken 7 times. Way too much. Against good players, you have no chance when you cant hold serve

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!!
