I would agree. At her level the last 16 months, it doesnt matter what she does week to week. She loses early, she might go watch some golf. But she has the whole week off, most weeks.
Caroline is almost at a panic type of situation. Where her career as an elite player, a player people mention before a major, is almost over.

She & her dad had better think hard about what they're doing. The goal isnt to work hard in practice, then lose early in a tournament and take a vacation.
The goal is to improve in practice then have each tournament be a long hard week.

But her game has become a disaster. She's not steady and she is not effective when she tries to be aggressive. The biggest problem is that her dad has broken her down mentally. Its a coach's job to build a player up, mentally. Not tear them apart.
We are watching a player who is very weak mentally. Sounds unbelievable from where she was in spring of 2010, but its very real, and very hard to change. Look at Jankovic & Ivanovic

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!!
