…I am starting to believe the bashers and critics of Caro…She will never win a Grand Slam.
Yeah, her level of play and not having the ability to close out matches makes it look like she will never win a major.
Its too bad, because draws are wide open.
Vika just played Ivanovic, Hantuchova, Pennetta. This was the first time Ana won a set at a major aginst a top 10 player in years, or some stat similar to that.
Dani couldnt win a round 1 match at several majors. Flavia had never been to semi before.
This could be a draw at any Tier III. If that was Caro's draw to the Lux final, it would be average for a Tier III
Same with Bartoli at the last major: Knapp, Stephens, Flipkens. If Vesnina beat those 3 at Hobart, no one would think twice about it.
But you still have to get thru draws. If you fold against qualifiers, you are far away from contention. Caro could not win a title all year. And if she beat q, Scheepers, q, those 3 wins wuld tie for her 2nd best tournament all year. She won 4 matches once all year
