So Caroline still has 10 good years left. Now she has a lot less pressure and expectations.
She can change that if she gets to Vika and then beats her. Get the expectation level a lot higher very quickly
I don't think that was a sustainable rate of winning tournaments.

I think Caro's potential slam winning window is a lot shorter than that. I see it ending after 2016 or 2017. Given her style of play and heavy number of matches played, I think it's highly unlikely that she'd win a slam after that if she hadn't won already.

Dureena Nafeel: I don't think you've recovered from your last good idea.
Captain Matthew Gideon: That would explain it.
