she had a 3h00 tough battle the day before and Putintseva is a pusher so well ... sad for her cause she managed to beat Czink there

but lets keep the positive, she had a great tournament with some nice wins, now let's get back to training and prepare for RG

This defeat against Yulia really tells it all though. Caro used to own her when they were juniors but now that they're on the senior circuit Yulia has beaten her both times they played. One seems to be transitioning pretty well on the WTA/ITF circuit while the other is still struggling. It's a shame cause Caro has so much more potential than Yulia it's not even funny.

really this was horrid loss. this time last year I got to know her I saw her Sharapova match at RG and she totally got me I saw big game spectacular tennis my expectation went so high and people said oh I saw at ITF she so average I was like no against Sharapova she was unbeliavable! I mean she really is she must be I thought this season like in April or so she totally will be in top100 =( and expectations now nowhereee shes already 19 she should get in there more =/// RG will be didsaster everything sucks

watching this Lauren Davis girl and feel even more furious against Caroline who must have played very crap yesterday:(

Davis is a pusher, she has no power, she just push from the baseline, she has no variation and just stands on the baseline. She doesnt know how to slide and is quite boring to watch.

Minella despite her actual slump knows how to play that kind of game. She 's mixing up her game, make some drop shots and come to the net.

Caroline must be ashamed of such a shit she made yesterday.

Caro got Pfizenmaier, one of the softest qualifiers she could get in my opinion. From what I have seen, Dinah doesn't really have much to hurt her opponent. If Caro isn't too shaky, she can make it to the 2nd round.

ok she got totally no name to me but looking at who she beat in Q she will be tough definitely she could have got better for example EL tabakh Birnerova or VEcino imo but could have been worse I mean Watson or Davis. Anyway tbh I expected Puig to go through and Pfizenmaier beat her so =/ I am really scared but I so want Caro to win! Pfizenamier is 20 so it will be tough she has best season on tour so far she beat Flipkens this year or Domachovska I mean Caro should beat her but considering what CAro showed in Strasbourg and how Pfizenmaier has played at French I am not much sure

I mean why? this time last year I began to have expectations for this season I thought CAro will be top 100 =( she is in fact much better than this girl but not she is not showing it =/ I just hope she wont feel any pressure playing home

Caroline into a third set. 63 46, but Caro had two occasions to make it to 55...
It's easy to look at who's confident and who's not on the court. Caroline is a better player than Pfizenmaier but she clearly doesn't believe in her game.
I hope she proves me wrong, but I don't see her getting through.

Iceland
May 27th, 2012, 08:18 PM
Lost 63 in the third, that was never in doubt. :banghead:
Pfizenmaier did the least amount of mistakes in the last set and was rightfully patient.
Caroline is still so unconfident. She can't make any use of her serve when she needs it and her body language is so negative that it's impossible to pump herself up.

May 27th, 2012, 08:32 PM
I am soo frustrated and dissapointed I mean I was crying a while ago I just cant believe how she could lost it how she doesnt use her tennis her talent nothing.... First set doesnt need comment. Second set she could break earlier than she did but obviously the key was her serve on 54! I will repeat it in my head for times again and again =/ there I knew she can win it in two obviously she messed it up totally I even dont know how could she and Pfizenmaier took the set and in third after 2nd set I thought it will be much worse but her returning =/ oh and yeah she definitely could break Pfizenmaier instead she got broken. And she is so pesimistic on court she can hit such unbeliavable winners... I dont understand her and at times she was sooo defensive whereas Pfizenmaier defensive was much better and it showed. Last game from her was just simply there was the point at 53 15-0 and she played it well but too carefully and Dinah had quick legs whole match and won that point =/ simply I dont know I am seriously losing faith in her. She will never reach her potential will she even reach top100 its all over everywhere the same she is balbashing not constructing the point. I really dont know any other player not using their game, talent...as much as Caroline. Obviously Pfizenmaier did play well butCaroline could and should win it. What do you guys think what do you expect next, through the season? Imo it will be the same still her ranking will be now even worse like 159. which makes it even tougher. I should have never watched her last year playing Masha and I would never know about her and not wory about her and feel sorry for her etc... =/

she has to be more solid and fights harder on each ball, defend harder and especially WORK WORK WORK

so disgusted at the end of the match cause she' s more talented and powerful than the german who pushed far from the baseline but fought hard there. That was the difference there.

at least great news for caroline who fired her coach Frederic Fontang who waisted one year with her. bad choice working with him;

good luck for her

vuhvuh
May 28th, 2012, 12:20 PM
Please her coach was bad? I dont know nothing about her coaches I thought she have had quite a good one at the moment so probably not. did she say something about after the match or about coaches? thanks

Corswandt
May 28th, 2012, 12:33 PM
she has to be more solid and fights harder on each ball, defend harder and especially WORK WORK WORK

Easier said than done. Court sense, anticipation and footwork are all very poor; she's unable to keep the ball in play as soon as she's forced into an awkward position (actually, even her aggressive game is way too linear and only effective when she's in the middle of the baseline). She'll never be even a halfway decent defender. The only way of not having to play any defense would be to develop an aggressive ROS. Problem is, right now her ROS is so incipient I don't see how that can be done.

The dropshotitis has to go; I suppose it's dogma for players/coaches bred on clay, but with a success rate of 1/20 or something maybe it's time to reconsider. There are no set ways to win points on any surface; the best game for Caroline is the one that makes the most of her strengths and makes it tougher for her opponents to exploit her weaknesses, regardless of what the textbook says and/or the way you're "supposed" to play on clay or elsewhere.

The lack of confidence Iceland mentions is visible mostly on serve. Sometimes she goes for it, but seems terrified of DFing and often will just spin it in, even on key points. That's something that can be improved. At the level at which she'll play for the next year or so, having a solid serve will sometimes be enough to win matches.

Was Fontang picked by the FFT, or picked by Caroline's entourage/family and merely subsidised by the FFT? I suppose I know what they were thinking; his work with Chardy showed that he might have the required skills to develop a young player.

Iceland
May 28th, 2012, 01:51 PM
Excellent analysis. :yeah:

I think you described very well all the challenges she faces right now to make it to top 100. I may just add the fact that a lot of her problems (bad shot selection, standard aggressive game) can be accounted for her lack of confidence in herself. Because she felt crippled, she was unable to raise the level of any sector of her game - in that respect, an effective serve is, as you said, the best option for her. It's nearly impossible to beat your opponent when you're already fighting against yourself. Having said that, I have no idea of what she can do to change her body language. Even a good week of tennis wasn't enough.

WTA is a tough place for teen agers. None of the teen agers including Caroline, Robson, Muguruza Blanco and Putinseva made it past R1 at RG.

Caroline has the same power game as Sharapova when Maria won Wimbledon in 2004 but the competition is different now. We need to be patient.

There is a video of Caroline being interviewed on Roland Garros website. She actually seems upbeat, but who knows if that's just for the cameras. When asked what she is taking away from the loss she answered "I can say that I'm a little bit happy because I fight all the match and it's important for the next. Maybe I have some points to be better, serve and sometimes forehand, backhand. I have next tournament I can play and be better". Hmm.

to answer you Corswandt Fontang was a coach who had been given by the fft to Caroline in order to form her

as for her "defending" side, I dont agree with you, I think even if you're an offensive player you HAVE TO be good on defense and work also on it. Just look at sharapova, she never been a defender nor a patient player but she worked hard on her foot work to improve

caroline has to work on her serve but especially on her physical condition too. She must become a complete player and not only an offensive one or just a good server...

she must find a good coach quickly cause she needs to work harder imo

Even if I'm not a fan of his tactics of transforming a player into a ballbasher, I think Mouratoglou wouldn't be a bad coach for Caroline. His help will reach its limits to some extent but I am sure he would be able to teach her how to be confident on court.

Not saying she shouldn't work on that. Just reminding that ROI from work done on her defense will be small as she'll never be that good at it.

lost 2 and 3.

like I said, still has a LOT of work to do before beating this kind of player. Too many errors, the serve can be improved, her physique also.

but well she won 4 matchs this week, will climb back in the ranking so not too bad week hé?

dont know what's her next tournament:confused:

HowardH
Sep 20th, 2012, 10:27 AM
Still a good week overall.

I also didn't expect her to win this one. For someone so prone to self-destruction a consistent grinder like Wozniacki is very difficult to play. One day perhaps she will be able to just blow her off the court.

Her physique is pretty good I think Amira. Perhaps she can get faster and stronger in the legs, but from what I have seen she has quite strong shoulders, pretty low bodyfat. Still, it can always be improved, but I feel that her physique is quite far above the average on the wta.

I haven't seen any recent matches, including this one, but from what I saw in earlier matches I do agree that Caroline's serve is a bit of a problem. Very doublefault prone under pressure. Not that many today though according to the stats, but she probably didn't get enough first serves in and it seems that she was losing an awful lot of points on the second serve.

améliemomo
Sep 20th, 2012, 10:45 AM
I dont say her physique is bad but she can still improve it to play better.

in the first set she was hitting like a brainless ballbasher and wasnt well placed to the ball. She needs also some power in her forehand and has to improve on her footwork. the serve and also the return must improve. She had 2 stellar games in set 2 at 4-1 woz.

she won her service game with authorithy not losing a point. Then broke woz to love thanks to amazing and powerful returns with her weakest shot, her backhand. She has potential but has to make sequences over and over again cause she has a very offensive game.

dont know what she plans to do during the off season but man if I were her I would hire a coach and work very very hard. Put some change in her service motion. Still very weird especially on the ball toss.:o

Caroline's into SF after a three set win over De Vroome 26 63 61. Nice to see her getting through from one set down, especially against a younger player than her. :yeah:
She will face her doubles partner, Monique Adamczak now. I think the Australian probably has more experience than her on grass, so that's a good test for Caro.

C'est une info de l'équipe....Comme en plus il donne le bon nom chez les hommes, info qui était officieuse jusque là, je pense qu'on peut leur faire confiance.

De toute façon, entre Razzano blessée au pied et Rezai toujours pas remise de son problème à la hanche, l'issue devenait prévisible. Après, Feuerstein a elle-aussi besoin d'oseille, même si jouer les interclubs lui permet de financer le voyage vers les antipodes...De toute façon, à part les vieilles gloires, entre 100 et 200, elles ont besoin de fraîche pour se payer ces longs déplacements. Et c'est pourquoi nombreuses sont celles qui préfèrent rester en Europe alors qu'elles ont le classement pour jouer aux antipodes.

Je viens de voir un reportage sur la Suissesse Conny Perrin (WTA 271), c'est édifiant. Elle a besoin de 60 000 francs suisses pour financer une année, son prize money 2011 était de 15 000, ses sponsors lui amènent 30 000, le reste c'est pour papa-maman.

C'est bien expliqué par l'entraîneur de Conny :
Entre 100 et 200, c'est l'équilibre
Au delà de 200, c'est en perte.

De toute façon, les aides de la FFT vont diminuer avec l'augmentation du coût des travaux de Roland Garros. Sans compter l'effet masse puisque le CNE accueille de plus en plus de pensionnaires.

jouer au tennis ça vaut le coup lorsque tu es classée le dans le top100 voir top 200 mais au dela ça devient très compliqué, alors si tu n'as aucune "aide" de ta fédé c'est juste mort

la fft qui coupe les robinets c'est pas une mauvaise chose car ça poussera nos joueuses à se dépasser et compter que sur elle. Seules les meilleures et les plus motivées continueront. Mais bon la fft c'est juste du gros nimporte quoi, c'est pas eux qui vont sauver le tennis feminin français mais bien les joueuses elle mêmes avec leur projet.

La meilleure actuelle Marion Bartoli en est arrivée là par son travail et sa détermination. Cool pour Caro qui j'espere fera honneur à l'invit.Tu le dis toi-même, les meilleures et les plus motivées.

Dans le cas de Marion Bartoli, il y avait presque des certitudes.....Son palmarès chez les jeunes était d'un autre niveau que celui des filles actuelles à l'exception de Kristina Mladenovic et d'Alizé Cornet. Et elle a très vite transpercé un tableau de grand chelem (3ème tour à l'USO 2002) alors qu'elle n'avait pas encore 18 ans.
Le problème des jeunes filles actuelles, c'est qu'elles sont peu nombreuses à franchir la barrière entre les ITF et les tournois WTA. Déjà que des filles comme Parmentier ou Johansson ont finalement peu joué en WTA, que dire des jeunes joueuses qui en sont encore à 18-20 ans à se battre dans des $10K ou des $25K et qui sont au CNE. Alors qu'elle devrait les survoler et passer les étapes à la vitesse grand V.
Bartoli est restée 6 mois au CNE...Le temps de voir qu'elle y perdait son temps (pas assez de courts disponibles, entraînements physiques pas assez soutenus). Et elle est repartie à Retournac.

L'année dernière, Nathalie Piquion intègre le CNE. Derrière, c'est silence radio au niveau des résultats. Elle qui était dans les 200 est tombée dans les profondeurs. Du coup, elle n'a pas été reprise. J'ai comme l'impression qu'ils remplissent la maison comme pour se faire pardonner des errements du passé avec un budget phagocyté par Tatiana Golovin et plus tard par Mladenovic.
En espérant un miracle.
La révélation tardive, je n'y crois pas. Même Sandrine Testud était aux portes du top 100 à 19 ans. Je pense que la FFT veut surtout remplir la case la case 50-200. Mais là on parle d'une case où les filles gagnent leur vie, mais pas plus. Alors si en plus, elles doivent 8% de leur prize-money à la fédé en échange de l'aide apportée....Je rappelle qu'une Mathilde Johansson n'a pas d'équipementier tenue et chaussures.

L'idée reste de sortir la locomotive. Et Fusai en convient HERE (http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/Actualites/Fusai-une-evolution-positive/331379) :
...."Alors oui quand notre meilleure joueuse est en marge, c'est compliqué. Les gens se posent du coup des questions sur le système. Le problème est plus grand aujourd'hui car nous sommes dans une période de creux où Marion est isolée en haut."

Quand je vois une fille comme Amandine Hesse, Clothilde De Bernardi ou encore Irina Ramialison évoluer dans des tournois 10000$ et perdre comme elles le font ben je me dis qu'elles sont super faibles. Après je sais pas si tu as vu les videos laissés par la fft sur l'encadrement de ces joueuses au CNE , je pense que c'est en effet une forme de légitimation de leur travail dans le tennis feminin national. Mais bon dans les résultats ben y a pas grand chose. Les filles qui vont reussir ne sont pas au CNE ça c'est certain.
Estelle Cascino et Lou Brouleau y sont et leur niveau a lourdement chuté à cause de blessures à repetition. C'est triste ca ces filles etaient prometteuses plus jeunes.

Le problème, c'est que l'une de ces filles doit au moins gagner le criterium comme l'ont fait Bartoli à 16 ans ou Parmentier à 20 ans. Suvrijn a fait finale l'année dernière. Mais elle perd contre Huck qui se contente de jouer le CNGT. Elles devraient éclater les Vedy, Capucine Rousseau, Violette Huck, Ségolène Berger et consorts. Ben non. Si tu ne bas pas ces prof de tennis, tu ne peux pas aller bien loin sur le circuit.
Et au CNE, ils empilent les 3-4-5-6 de chaque classe d'âge. Je ne veux pas citer de noms, mais y'a des filles qui n'ont rien à y faire. J'espère pour la fédé que ça va marcher avec Constance Sibille. Mais bon, elle a déjà 22 ans. Ils ont enfin pris sous leur coupe Claire Feuerstein. C'était pas trop tôt. Elle a juste 26 ans. Irena Pavlovic et Victoria Larrière sont suivies. J'espère qu'ils vont en faire de même avec Estelle Guisard. Une victoire contre Karin Knapp sur terre battue ne peut pas laisser indifférent : http://www.lepays.fr/sport/2012/08/13/estelle-guisard-a-frappe-fort
Mais logiquement, entre 18 et 22 ans, c'est l'âge où on quitte la fédé. Momo a coupé le cordon ombilical dans ces eaux là. Mladenovic vient de le faire. Et c'est l'inverse qui se passe.

oui amélie l'a tout de suite comprit que pour viser haut il fallait se doter d'une structure specifique qu'il n'y a pas avec la fft. rester dans le giron fédéral est sécurisant mais n'apporte rien en terme de résultats probants. Alors ils ont de l'argent à depenser donc ils encadrent ces filles hesse, de bernardi, arcangioli etc
et oui dans le lot y a des filles qui devraient pas y être, j'ai des echos par rapport au laxisme qu'il y a au CNE. Lou Brouleau et Estelle Cascino me restent en travers de la gorge car c'est clairement du gachis. Elles sont encore très jeunes (17 et 16) mais le niveau n'est juste pas la. Lou n'a quasiment pas pu jouer en 2012. Comment tu veux progresser dans ces conditions ? A la place de Lou Brouleau je ne resterais pas la bas car ça n'apporte rien. Ah si j'oubliais, des blessures.:rolleyes: C'est juste super deprimant je pense et en plus y a aucune émulation de la part des dirigeants.

L'idée de la fft, c'est de renforcer la densité 50-300. Parce que les plus prometteuses quittent tôt le giron fédéral.
Or, comme tu ne gagnes pas d'argent avant d'intégrer de manière durable le top 100, le CNE peut aider. Et c'est son rôle d'ailleurs avec un contrat pas idiot. Si les joueuses gagnent de l'argent + tard, elles reverseront environ 8% de leur prize money. D'où l'idée de soutenir certains potentiels (18-22 ans) en retard par rapport à l'allumage. Le problème, c'est qu'ils donnent de l'illusion à trop de joueuses. Avec des résultats non probants pour le moment.

Parmi les joueuses suivantes : Laetitia Sarrazin, Constance Sibille, Irina Ramialison, Manon Arcangioli, Clothilde De Bernardi et Amandine Hesse, quelles sont celles qui intègreront de manière durable le top 100 ?
Pour le moment, je n'en vois aucune dans cette liste.

Comme quoi le systeme est pourri jusqu'aux tréfondsCe n'est pas un discours insultant, plutôt réaliste me semble t-il pour des 3-4-5 de chaque classe d'âge. Le problème, c'est quand le CNE donne de l'illusion à des joueuses qui manifestement ne perceront jamais.
Les stats sont claires : en moyenne
- 1 top 100 par classe d'âge
- entre 3 et 4 top 20 tous les 10 ans
- toutes les top 20 révélées avant l'âge de 20 ans

Le gachis ne date pas d'aujourd'hui. Tu parles de Brouleau et de Cascino. Moi je te rappelle Guisard (89), Rodier (91), Babet (92) qui gagnaient tout chez les jeunes. A partir du moment où le plus gros potentiel d'une classe d'âge explose, tu dois te contenter des miettes.
Aujourd'hui chez les 96, Dodin semble plus prometteuse que Cascino. Et chez les 95, c'est l'histoire des 91 qui se répète, avec Jade Suvrijn à la place de Victoria Larrière.

Et puis si les joueuses sont talentueuses et motivées elles n'ont pas besoin des meilleures structures du monde pour réussir. Si Chloé Babet a arrêté c'est parce qu'elle n'était plus motivé, faut pas avoir peur des mots elle a mal tourné, et Estelle Guisard ne peut s'en prendre qu'à ses bléssures, sans ça elle serait déjà dans les 100.

omg she had 2 match points to beat Jankovic!

what a match really:sobbing: Caroline was playing so so GREAT!so cruel she couldnt close it out cause Jankovic played even better in key points!

despite the loss that hurts, I saw many many good things there. She is very quick on the court, that was amazing to see she was winning tough baseline rallies against jankovic who was moaning all over the place:o

at 9-8 in the tie break she had her chance but it was sooo close. She must beat top100, top50 in regular basis now, no room for disgusting loss in 25000$.:( She is way better than that

well dont know if Amélie will pick her to join the team in fed cup, I would like cause she proved how good she can be. She must believe more in herself and she'll become great. Amélie can help her to it.


Next stop: Katowice qualies.

Good luck Caro.

She once again showed that she has game. However she plays crucial points poorly, when a bit of pressure is applied she tends to make unforced errors. She actually didn't play the matchpoints badly though. JJ was very good on those points, stayed completely focused.

One thing about her is that compared to others with similar rankings, she is much better at handling higher level, tough rallies, so she can challenge strong players. But beating lower level players is a separate skill from challenging top players.

We will see in the coming months what happens.

Maybe it's best for her if she enters qualies for bigger tournaments instead of playing itf tournaments.

By the way, thanks for your report Corswandt in your GM Portugal Open 2013 thread.

Day 1 - Q1R

Anastasia Rodionova d. Garcia 7-5, 2-6, 6-1

Whole match.

Same old for Garcia.

Garcia at her best is a scary good flat shotmaker from both sides with one of the best serves you're likely to see at this level. BH, FH, serve all excellent from a purely technical POV. However her court positioning is still very much a work in progress, as she never seems to know when to step in and have a go at the ball and when to rally from behind the baseline. When she was flattening out her shots, Rodionova just couldn't handle her pace. But once pressure sets in she starts adding more spin to her shots and lets herself get dragged into neutral rallies in which all her weaknesses are made apparent - her BH seemed quite consistent for a while, but then there were patches in which she would thrown away whole games with needless errors on apparently easy rally BHs. Her footwork remains very poor, her movement to her BH side atrocious and easily explotaible, her shot selection often retarded. Last three games or so she didn't bother to contest.

All reports suggest conditions were very windy and difficult.

Good to hear. She already has all the shots - only needs to know how to win. This is a big step towards that.

yes for sure. I cant imagine her losing again in finale. I think she learnt some things during this week, she said it on interviews. She said it was tough matchs against experienced players, that she had to find solutions and a way to win, that she was happy she managed to do it.

hopefully she'll keep learning and get the wins in a consitent basis. Next is Strasbourg, hope she has a wild card there.

I said on the tournament FB page what I think about that and thank God they acted to do the right thing. Thank you for the link;)

And another good news, it's confirmed; Caroline got a MD wildcard in Strasbourg:)
