Unless she says herself that she is tired or exhausted or worn out, PLEASE stop saying that she is :fiery:
I can't stand it when they impose their assumptions into a match just to tell whatever story they decided to tell that day.

Am I the only one?

Well she apparently had a hard time getting out of bed this morning so it is only natural for them to assume she is tired.
Also, she is probably tired, but she knows Caro's game is ass and she can beat her tired.

Lets see if Fran can close it out

So feel good about thatIt's pretty clear than Francesca looked tired right from the start. She came in to the net off some ridiculous shots in the first set to try to shorten the point.

And now it seems like the dam has broken.

On the other hand, Wozniacki probably called that injury timeout so she would have an excuse if she lost to a tired opponent.

At the YEC, Fran won the 1st set then Caro won 61 61
Right now, its obvious Caro is playing better than set 1, when she had 6 break points and did nothing with them.
Caro is competitive, thats how you win 25 of 26 on this tour
And yes, Fran has a real excuse if she doesnt play well, but she was playing well until Caro raised her own game.
Maybe both, fran tired, caro digging in

What is her skill set?
If Fran hits less errors, she's already won the game....so apart from taking advantage of vulnerability (which any smart tennis player can do)...what exactly does she do?

goldenlox

Fran is still covering a ton of court

LOL she has consistency because she doesn't have a classic shot that she uses to take risks on.
I've seen her use that backhand like once.
Fran is like dead on her feet, the fact that someone like 10 years older and who played the tournament like 5 hours longer than her is almost embarrassing..
She looks like a turtle on it's back when players minimize their errors:lol:

You've also got to remember that tennis players don't only have physical stamina, but also mental stamina.
Schiavone really seems to have no mental stamina left, after a 16-14 3rd set, after being a set and a break up to woz just to go to the 3rd set, I think she's mentally exhausted...

Considering that players have minimized their errors enough to beat her just three times in the last seven months, either the WTA is a bunch of club level players or Caroline is much better than she gets credit for.

I don't think she should be #1 in the world and don't think she has a Slam winning game yet, but my God, some of you are acting like its Camille Pin or Rodina beating all these big names. She plays a very smart, tactical game. It's not flashy, but it gets the job done. If people think her matches are boring, then stop watching them.

goldenlox
Jan 25th, 2011, 05:04 AM
Still some very good points being played.
RememberCaro beat her the last 2 times they played.
Its not like Fran walks over Caro on hardcourt
Fran will win unless Caro plays very steady. If she fucks around, like going for that big serve return, she'll lose.

I think this thread was opened when Fran outsmarted Caro and took the first set and everyone was surprised that she wasn't as tired as expected and was in fact on her way to the semi final

Now that that didn't happen it's time to backtrack and pretend as if turbo-chicken-Fran was totally tired :lol:

The truth is of course neither. She was only a little bit tired (didn't ran out of gas, she still had a bit left in the tank at the end)
