Great victory Caro :bounce: 19th WTA Title.
For me most important is that she played yesterdey and today really well, actively, moving well, fast and have many fantastic winners including FH winners :worship: Little minus only 50% 1st serve - next week must be much higher. Hopefully Caroline will play good in Tokio. Maybe QF with Aga Radwańska, finally :).

Jimmie, the previous avatar was much nicer, i guess ;).

Next up for a much tougher tournament. Can she make it to her two bffs and beat them?

I just watched the 1st set on the broadcast feed I acquired. I have never seen Caro hit forehands like that outside of practice. She was nailing them, changing speeds. Best I've ever seen it. That was the 1st set. I'll look at the 2nd set in a bit.

I don't know if it's the best I've ever seen from her, but damn yes, some really good, solid FH and as you say, good variety.

Did you notice anything in regards to racket tension? I know it's difficult to gauge from the sound, but I think that's back to where she came from. No more playing around with the rubber band tension and gaining power that way. She was obviously able to generate power herself and had control of the balls.

I think there's still a little to come from the serve. The ball toss could be a little in front of her, rather than straight up.

Also good solid BH and some beautiful DTL winners. Even a few inside-out BH winners. That is one difficult shot to get right.

Not sure why her right ankle still needs such a heavy taping though :( .. but at least it didn't appear to hinder her at all. She looked fit and healthy with ... maybe it was just this style of tennis dress, but rather busty .. Don't mention the P-word.

From glancing in GM, I had the impression Kanepi had made 20 DF and an extra 50 UE. I am glad to now have seen by myself, this wasn't the case at all. Caro went out there and bossed the match from the first points and didn't ease up on the pedal after having won 1st set.

I am encouraged :)

I'm fairly certain that she has had that ankle taped like that since the injury she suffered in Charleston back in 2010. Maybe she just became accustomed to it being taped and now it feels weird not to tape it?

I think she's playing with the same tension, but I think she's learned how to use it. She was putting some real heavy spin on the ball. Some of the serves she hit right at Kaia bounced hard right up into her face, and it was more of Kaia putting the racquet to defend herself.

I counted the W/UE elsewhere. They're my count, but winners agreed with the official scoring for the first set so ...

Caro's forehand was burning in the 2nd set. It was her most effective wing. Lovely to see. So many people didn't believe me when I said Caro had a terrific forehand, she just left it on the practice court. But it doesn't really matter, so few saw this match, it'll be like banging my head against the wall.

I don't believe you either (yet).:p Like TennisFan66 I'm downloading the match so I'll be able to see for myself.

It's really weird, she has had matches in the past where her forehand looked much better. Maybe it was never a big weapon for her but it also wasn't the liability that it has become. If she really has "fixed" it, and if it sticks, she should have a good chance to get back in to the top five. Of course those are two very big "ifs.":lol:

2 Aces and 2 DF ... looked a little too nonchalant on especially the 2nd DF, but else I think she's been very professional. And FH clearly improved vs pretty much whole 2012. First ace, she threw the ball just in front of her and the extra umpf from the weight distribution paid off. There is so much more to come from her serves.

A gift from Jovanovksi there. 15-30 instead of 3 BP. Unfortunately, as we've seen it so many times before, Caroline's FH has now broken down. Shots become shorter and shorter and weaker and weaker.

If anything, Jovanovski playing better in this 2nd set should be a reason to stay more aggressive as passive play depends on more errors.

3rd BP for Jovanovski. This is so poor, I'm thinking about stop watching this she1t. One step forward in Korea (final) and now firmly a step back to general 2012 form .. so disappointing.

One of the problems is that Caro doesn't get much advantage from serving anymore. We see that often: Caro's serve works well in the beginning of the match but then the opponent seems to figure her out and anticipates her. She needs more variation on serve and better disguise.

When Caro first met Jovanovski 1½ year ago (4 & 4 win), this was how I rated her.

I'm not saying that to disregard Jovanovski as a nobody. I actually think she has great potential, she just isn't there yet. She has a great forhand which can take her places and she returned Caro's harder serves very well, but she also has big weaknesses in her game such as serve, consistency and I'm not sure about her mental makeup, either. But if she can plug some of the holes in her game she could be in top 20 by next year.

I wasn't completely off, I'd say.

Honestly, I don't think she looks that tired. It's simply her old problem, all mental.

She plays a great 1st set and should be full of confidence. But Jovanovski plays better in the 2nd and she does what she always does, resorting to getting defensive. She simply dosen't believe enough in herself and her game against bigger opponents and on bigger stages..the only place where she can do it is tournaments like Seoul.

Big players exceed on the big stages...Caro gets worse as the pressure builds.

I didn't see any of the match (stupid internet connection) but it's very puzzling how quickly she can go from one extreme (the first set when she must have played great) to the other (1/9 on break points in the second set). It is weird that what was once her greatest strength (her consistency) is now (arguably) her biggest weakness.

Eh, I don't believe that Jovanovski in the first round of Tokyo is a big opponent on a big stage. On hardcourts earlier in the year she did much better than this at least in the early rounds. This is rather inexplicable. Of course she can still win the match and the stoppage in play will probably help her but it's frustrating that she can't maintain a high level of play even against players outside of the top fifty.

She played great in the first but Jovanovski let her as well, made lots of errors. Once Jovanovski stepped it up, Caro was unable to respond.

That's something she lacks, changing her game plan mid-match, adjusting to a new situation...she's not very good at that. Instead, her answer always is to fall back into defensive mode.

I don't get this mindset of getting defensive when your opponent plays better. It's rather counter productive.

The 'stepping up' simply means going after Caroline's FH. All of Jovanovski's own FHs go CC and all BHs, DTL .. Unless there is a clear opening.

And it's regrettably working, as Caro's FH has broken down. If it's not an outright UE, it's a FH return, which lands short, in the middle of the park :shrug:

It's so perplexing (and disappointing) giving how the FH worked in Korea final and in 1st set.

C. W. Fields

To be honest I wasn't happy before the match that Caro's first opponent would be Jovanovski. If she had met KDK or some such medium powered opponent, I would have been 95% sure of Caro winning. But JB is the kind of inconsistent ballbasher that has troubled Caro many times in the past. They're usually too inconsistent to be top ranked, but every now and then they have a good day where they really hit the ball clean and are dangerous to everyone. And sadly Caro isn't the pull-the-trigger-quick kind of player who can prevent an opponent from taking the initiative when the other girl is willing to go for winners already from shot 2. From the start of set 2 BJ really upped her game and went for her shots and Caro wasn't willing/able to take the same risks in order to stay in control, so now the match balances on a razor edge.

It'll be interesting to see who has benefitted most from the break when they resume play (presumably in half an hour).

It's funny that Caro had 3 aces in the 3rd set but only won 46% of points on her 1st serve in that set.

I've never been a fan of that Sharapova essentially serve a 1st serve as a 2nd serve style.

It's funny that Caro had 3 aces in the 3rd set but only won 46% of points on her 1st serve in that set.

I've never been a fan of that Sharapova essentially serve a 1st serve as a 2nd serve style.

I think a lot of people are frustrated that these improvements show up on a limited basis such as a set or maybe a match.

It takes time. They have to be worked into her muscle memory. I was happy as a porcus in excrementus to see her do it for almost a whole match. I think I've watched the Seoul final 6 times. I like the way she can buckle down when she has to.

Yes, though Caro's overall play wasn't convincing against Jovanovski today and Makarova two days ago, at least she was able to bring a little extra when it really mattered. That's a very important improvement because she has lost so many close matches during the last year where she didn't have those extra percent in the last games: Paszek at Wimbledon, McHale at Eastbourne, Kanepi at FO, Pennetta at Beijing and Kanepi at Tokyo come to mind.

Is there a stream from Court 1?

I don't think so, so far only the CC matches have been streamed by what I can tell. Seems like we may be out of luck :(

After a great first set it became more of a struggle than it should have been. That forehand looked good in the first set. I don't know why she fell back instead of hitting through the shot in the second set. There was no reason for that whatsoever. But she won in the end, so all's well that ends well I suppose. But it could and should have been much easier than this. Why waste energy you might need tomorrow or later on in the tournament?

Wonderful when Eurosport does sensible things while I'm at work. :p. My firewall is blocking the Player, the Bet365 stream is down. And it's 16C in the office and our contract says we don't have to work.

Caro's forehand is still inconsistent, but at least it's there more than one shot a match.

This match is exactly when people claimed Caro was hitting great forehand winners many of us demanded receipts. :lol:

So she's still as shaky on that wing as ever. Still a lot of work to do. But she did win and sometimes it's just better to get the win no matter how ugly it is.

Check out her Seoul match. It was rock solid for a whole match. I've never seen that before from her. Small steps.

I'm happy that she finally managed to pull it off. Maybe now her game is finally coming together and she can apply all the improvements effectively. Here's hoping they'll show her next match,too.

Caro - Dani on C1 will be same time as Vika - Tamira on CC, we know what match the cameras will cover.

Yah but if the courts were switched between Caro and Vika though, Vika would probably still be heard at least. :p

Well, that has nothing to do with the players, CC is covered with cameras, C1 isn't. And it isn't exactly a surprise that the #1 gets to play on CC.

I don't think this will be any trouble. Favorable H2H, their OG match was basically a no-contest... this should be done in straights.

Aga just needs to win one more set and CC is free. I wish they'd postpone the start of Caro's match and move it.
