Bravo Caro! Obviously one can’t read too much in this NID match but I liked Caro’s demeanor throughout. You could see in her expression that she came to this tournament with the attitude to win not just to make a respectable showing and not embarrass herself. She may not win but she won’t be an easy opponent to those she faces.

First set was most curious with Caro winning 31 total points to Dandilidou’s 11 points. 8 of those 11 points were in the 6th game where Eleni was trying desperately to stave off a bagel but it was not to be.

Caro hitting winners like a boss :cool: she seemed to be good also in generating power off both wings despite Eleni's great slices who really slowed down the ball.

Eleni :hug: wish you a better draw and better luck in wimbly

Good luck in next round girl:)

What is there to say about such a routine beating? No surprise really, this match was basically a no-contest, after just 11 minutes Caro was up 4-0.

In all fairness, I'm sure Woz is much happier to face Goerges(potentially) in the fourth than Serena.
Even if she doesn't have the best record against either.

No offense to anyone but every match seems slightly irrelevant right now, after the Serena-Razzano match. :lol:

Great win Caro xx I watched bits of it but was too caught up in the Serena match to take much notice to be honest.

Its still a potentially tough draw before Sharapova.
A lot of good players in this section, like Goerges, Kanepi. Those players beat Caroline

very true...every match starting with 2nd round will/could potentially be a big challenge for her but I have to say 6-0 6-1 is not a bad start regardless.
Reminds me of the "old days" when she would breeze through her first few rounds with no trouble. Hoping she can keep it up.
But she has to try her hardest to come out strong and focused every time if she wants to make a real dent here.

Didn't he pick Serena Williams as winner? .. I can understand why you base your trolling on that pundit.

Its still a tough draw, if she has to play Kanepi, Goerges, Sharapova, Kvitova, Azarenka.
Nothing easy about that.
But better to concern ourselves with round 2 now

I'd say Caro's chances are about the same against either. Caro still hasn't figured out how to play Julia. When JG has the initiative she wins the point more often than not. And when Caro has the initiative, JG hits a high ball to Caro's BH and neutralizes the point because Caro can't generate enough pace.
But let's worry about that when the time comes. First Gajdosova who's tricky on a good day. And Kanepi's even more dangerous if her serve and power shots are on.

Well, she did breeze through this one don't you think?:lol: Also, to the OP, I think that there is no point opening threads in GM. As usual,trolls who do not care care enough to contribute:rolleyes:

saw a couple game a the end of first set, I think it was okay quality, some nice court coverage and net play from both. I dont think she did that bad, could have won 1-2 more games with a bit luck.

Eleni is garbage on clay :shrug: it is easily her worst surface :shrug:

this would be a bad matchup for her anywhere, she has nothing for Wozniacki anyway.
