No mockery but it is a teeny bit sad that you are making me look like an optimist. You were once so positive and upbeat. The last year must have been very rough on you.

:lol: I don't know, it's not so much being optimistic or pessimistic - as I see it, it's about being realistic .. As Jimmie just said, the days where Caroline would steam roll a player ranked #40 is long gone ...

Naturally I like everyone else here hopes very very much, those days will return ... but after a bit of optimism during the Olympics, we're now back to struggling ... If it's because of injury or flu, cold .. who knows ... Fact is we're praying she'll might win just one match tonight.

I don't think anyone realistically thinks she can win two.

4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in 2h31m. Caro 7-0 in Montreal. It wasn't a great match by Caro but she had the steadier nerves and the steadier game. You can see why VL has moved up from outside the top 100 to inside the top 40 this season: her FH is deadly and her serves are sharp but she still lacks the mental strength of a top player.

Next is Wozniak. Caro is 7-1 H2H but Aleks has been playing really well this tournament and has the crowd behind her. When you add to the mix that Caro has just played a long match, coughs, has a taped right leg and still isn't playing up to her best, I wouldn't call Caro the favorite.

Early 2nd set .. It was difficult to tell really. She went low to return a ball and called for the trainer for the next change over ... That said, I think most of us just thought she'd ask for some aspirin, as she looked tired and without power in her shots (the coughing, we've been hearing about).

Ok... That was a poorly played performance, but I'll take the victory anyway. She needs it. But come on Caroline, improve your level of play, because it won't cut against better players. She's now 20-2 against players outside the Top30, so she's still not losing against lower ranked players.

I know she kind of owned Wozniak, but I just can't see how she could win against the Canadian with such a few laps of time to recover :mad:

In any case, you can said anything about Caroline, but the girl is such a fighter. I don't think I ever saw her losing hope or stopping the fight. This is one of the aspects of her personality that makes her so amazing :worship: :worship:

About the stats, we talk about 35 w/49 UE for Lepchenko and 14 W and 28 UE for Caroline.

terjw

I couldn't see any of This match. How did she play?

Well not very good. But to her credit she won when I thought there was no way she would win. At certain stages of the match - notably end of first set and mid third set - she leaked UEs. She was having problems breaking serve. What does she do in the 3rd set when up 0-30. Hit a 2nd serve tamely in the net. Then she gets BP and fails to return the serve in. Two points lost you don't associate with the Caro of old. And at the end on her last service game where she was struggling to get 1st serves in - she really was gifted some points that she was totally out of.

I mentioned she had a lot of problems getting anywhere near to breaking a good serve by a left-hander. She didn't get a single BP until right at the end of the 2nd set which she took and Lepchenko's level dipped.

One thing that was difficult for her was she was playing an opponent who was a left-hander and had an incredibly dangerous forehand that was working and was playing very well. It was really dangerous for Caro to do much of her bread and butter cross-court backhands to that dangerous forehand. As a result she was forced to use her forehand much more out of choice to keep it away from Lepchenko's forehand. And considering that forehand is her weakness - she managed that quite well. It didn't break down

Supposed to be raining now. Even if she doesnt play tonight she probably has to play 2 matches tomorrow.
I prefer she gets a night to recover & beats Wozniak. Then if she loses, at least she reached a semi
But it sounds like they're going to play tonight

Pas de matchs avant 20h. Wozniak-Wozniacki sera sur le central, Kvitova-Paszek sur le Court BN, et Safarova-Vinci sur le 9.

Relax, there won't be a third...Wozniak will make a bunch of errors to surrender 1-2 easy games and that's it.

Maybe our girl has turned a corner and things are looking up again. What was her record for the last seven matches she played before the Olympics? 2-5 I believe. For the seven matches she's played since the Olympics it's 6-1. No matter what happens tonight, by the looks of it Caro has turned a corner and (hopefully) the worst is now behind her. She's not playing great tennis on a consistent basis yet, but the hunger seems to be back, and instead of crumbling under the pressure she's winning close matches again. :)

Well I didn't notice if she did. But I wasn't really looking. I don't think that's a problem. But when she won - instead of the usual running to the net - she was holding her thigh and walking to the net. And still holding it after the handshake. Then whe waved to the crowd and I didn't see her hold her leg again. I hope Caro is alright.

This would explain why after leading 40-0 in that last game - her serves were weak.

:yeah:

IMO, Petra is the clear favorite and I don't expect Caro to have 'cracked the Petra code'. I'm not saying that Caro can't win this match and the tournament too, she has done it before, so she can do it again and she has the heart and all. I'm just calling it as I see it, that Na and Petra are clear favorites here and for USO, I see Serena, Vika, Maria, Na and Petra as the clear favorites. But, who knows, Caro might become one of the favorits for years to come.

When Piotr and Caro started looking for a coach, they weren't looking for someone patting them on their backs, saying, everything is fine etc. :lol: I was encouraged by what I saw in OG in London. Not the 'ballbashing' or hitting the ball hard bla. bla. bla. but Caro's attitude is changing and now I see her build on that, by going for winners. Okay she isn't making most of them yet, but, IMO, six months ago, she would have lost a match like the Varvara match. What I mean is, she would have gone slightly negative or defensive, when under pressure, but she seems to correct it while she's playing now. Now she fx. lives with serving 50% first serves, yes, she probably makes a couple of safe serves at that stage, I mean, Caro is not 'Made in Russia'. :lol:

Improving Caro's 'ballbashing skills', is most probably, another chapter. ;)

Yeah I agree with that.

Also this last match was a good one to win as well because she got into some long rallies and constructed points. I haven't seen much of her this year - but two things do concern me:

When she gets into long tallies - I thougtht Aleks was more likely to win the point. Maybe that's me - but it often ended with Caro making the error. I always used to think the opposite - that once she got into a long rally that she would probably win the point. And all the time her UEs are high - I don't think her chances are good against the very top players. It was her "weapon" if you could call it that.
.
Her 1st serve percentage was really bad - barely over 50%. That's unusual thought and maybe her leg and the gruelling two matches were the reason.

I think that most of us wanted to see a combination of the two. She could keep her safe, defensive game but at the same time improve her offense and take her chances when they present themselves. I don't think she was ever going to realise her full potential without improving her offensive game but at the same time she shouldn't ignore her defensive game which brought her so much success.

Yes, I know what you mean, but the first step, is in the mind, has to do with attitude. She has to do it, feel it etc. and become successful at it. I don't think that she will ever lose matches like Ana or Pova have, but hopefully she will most probably be to agressive, sometimes maybe. :)

I agree with all of this. There really aren't many players who have Caroline's defensive skills and I think her rough patch this year is more about her losing her ground game than about her opponents getting better. If she can regain her main game while adding more offense, she will be a tough person to beat for many years.

But the idea she was just passive and safe two years ago when she won here and never took risks and that now she is going for it and taking risks when she didn't before and that's the reason for the increased number of errors is just not the case.

No of course I don't want her to go all passive. But so often you see Caro just make an error because she broke down in a rally before Aleks did - not trying to go for it or anything or even that Aleks simply took control. I would be interested in stats as to whether I'm right on how many points Caro wins when a rally develops compared to the past.

Please guys, I'm not against anyone's view on this matter. But fx., the successful F1 driver, drives on the edge of what is possible for him. I don't see it as wrong, to search for the limits and become as good as possible, in both offence and defense. :)

I think Caro has a good chance against Kvitova. Caro knows how to force Kvitova into making lots of errors and that's the key to win against her. On the other hand she cannot let Kvitova step in and find her rhythm. In last two matches I finally saw that Caro is playing similarly as last year and puts pressure on the opponents her way - making them play long rallies and go for too much.
Kvitova is vulnerable in the rallies and does crack under the pressure, hopefully Caro will take advantage of that.

This. Also, I think that for a counterpuncher it's normal not to take many risks. That's not how she wins matches. She wins mainly thanks to the ability to force errors and throw her opponents off balance. However, when she sees a chance she can also attack. Going for risky shots is just not what she's good at and she shouldn't play this way if she wants to win tough matches. If she played a high-risk game against Lepchenko I think she'd be gone by now. It's just not for her. It's good to see that she opts for things that are working,IMHO.

I hope that the match will be posted on t3nnis. Because, Caro did take chances in the match, she tried to stand her ground, that's why she, IMO, won it. Some of us remember fx. Caro losing the IW final to JJ or her losing the USO final or being beaten at Wimbly by Petra and other BAD losses, because the other player was in control. Caro her self has 'seen the light'. If they felt that everything was okay and the limit was reached, then there was no need for Thomas Johansson. To My knowledg, he has talked about two tings, first attitude then weapons. He belives in Caro's potential, and I love it. :)

:yeah: I agree with each of those three comments.

I'm also happy to find some optimism in this forum, which was rather gloomy recently.

On the other hand, I can't say that the last three victories have appeared promising to me. Sure every victory is sweet by itself, but I'm still awaiting Caroline to play well again. I am sorry to say that her level of play yesterday was alarming. Maybe it was just an effect of her cold and tiredness, but she's going nowhere while playing that bad. Luckily, her opponents failed to take advantage of it. In particular Lepchenko, who missed a golden opportunity.

As I have said several times, Caroline continues to win against opponents outside the Top30. Just as she has always done, she's winning nearly 95% of her matches against them. Wozniak and Lepchenko are not the kind of opponents I fear. But I think we are all aware that Caroline was very fortunate with her draw at Montreal. Normally a player has to beat much better opponents to reach the semifinals of a P5. Although it simply compensates a bit for all those occasions when Serena found herself in her portion of the draw since the beginning or the year.

But that doesn't change the fact that Caroline is 0-4 against the Top 10 this year, 5-5 against the Top20 and 1-3 against the Top30. Unfortunately, I can't see how she's going to improve those stats against the best players with the way she played yesterday. Not that I'm pessimistic: I know things change quickly in this sport. Some simple modifications in the way she plays and she'll found herself winning again.

On the bright side, she seemed solid in several rallies with Wozniak, reminding me of the player from 18 months ago. I had the feeling she was building some confidence while playing. I hope its true.

Chrissie-fan

I think she's on the right track since Wimbledon. Minor steps, but minor steps in the right direction. Game wise I like Johansson' vision. Most of us have argued for a long time that Caroline shouldn't give up her core game, but that she should nevertheless try to add to her offensive arsenal. He seems to agree and Caroline seems to play with a newly found enthusiasm. Sure, her play is still very up and down, but again - minor steps in the right direction. And result wise the first priority was to stop losing to players she's supposed to beat as has happened far too frequently over the last year or so. But at the Olympics and in Montreal she HAS beaten the players she's supposed to beat. True, not always in the most convincing manner, but she has beaten them. The next phase will be trying to close the gap as much as possible between herself and the big guns. We won't know if she will succeed in doing this until and if it actually happens, but I think she has a better chance with than without Johansson. That doesn't mean however that she should give the boot to Piotr because the current set-up seems to be a promising one.

Needless to say, I'm a lot less confident today. Kvitova has been rather impressive this week.

Is it just me or have Kvitovas jugs gotten bigger? They`re almost Juliaesque now, never noticed that before :lol:

Interesting. Caro won the toss and chose the end .. Kvitova elected to serve first.

The dude on British ES doesn't like Caro's out fit ... That will then be his contribution for the entire match! ... If Carlsberg made bad tennis pundits ... etc ...

Kvitova's serve ranges from great to crap.

That was a chance, but the lefty swing out on the AD court was too good *sighs* ... Apart from Hopmans Cup, all tour and slam matches between Caro and Kvitova has been 2 set blow outs ..

0-1. PK saves BP with a serve out wide to Caro's BH like often before.

Geez Kvitova is slamming shots left and right, thankfully her accuracy is still way off.

If Kvitova can increase her accuracy Caro's in big trouble I think.

A tad lucky there, but we'll take everything!!! 99 out of 100 times, Caro goes CC on the FH on a run to the net ... It's not exactly difficult to guess, where she'll hit (apart from the one time out of a 100, where she somehow manages to go DTL) .. :) ...

Anyhoo, British ES is so far up Kvitova's arse, I think he's looking out of her eyes!

Caroline needs to just stick in there ... and naturally not lose her own serve (too easy).

The game plan of going deep, down the middle, is spot on. If Kvitova wants to hit herself to death, no-one is stopping her.
