Winning matches is always a good thing, but confidence wise Caro desperately needs a win over an elite player.
Yes,such wins would be nice,but even THEY wouldn't be enough if Caroline didn't fundamentally believe in what she was doing in the bigger picture.As with the win over SW that you cited,she'll probably pass such victories off as flukes when she caught the top player on a bad day.

When I say that Caro might not believe in what she's doing,aye DON'T mean that she distrusts Piotr's intentions at all.However,I wonder if she sees herself as capable of returning to the top EVEN IF SHE EXECUTES EXACTLY AS PIOTR INSTRUCTS HER.She may feel that even her BEST isn't good enough to move beyond the YEC alternate 'barrier'.If she DID have such doubts,then extra time with Rory would probably be even more appealing than it otherwise would to her...and her on-court mental strength would be somewhat sapped,too

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