She has lowered her social media activity and is struggling with her tennis. Plus she has withdrawn from two tournaments.

Maybe there is nothing wrong, but it is a possibility.
well now that you say that, this would make sense, yesterday in her double match she seemed pissed, not interested, then she saw how kristina was fighting and then she reacted

dont know what's wrong with her right now but she has to react and fast

well that's why it was not a bad idea cause she has to make her confidence back, since wimbledon she's 0-3 in winning ratio

so what now?she'll come to the olympics miraculously changed? tennis can be amazing sometimes but trust me she will need more than one week of training to come there and kick everybody ass


watched her double match yesterday and they were going to lose, they were down 4-6 3-5 in this match they finally won 4-6 7-5 10-4

caroline was flat and not playing well, kristina had to cheer strong for her saying "yes super, good play caro", at the end she finally put more intensity, hitting big returns, stop making errors and they were back

Re: Caroline Garcia

Any reason as to why she has pulled out?

Not that i am going to complain too much, i mean she won't be tested there by many looking at the field.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro finally out of Florianopolis. Next is Rio, hope she will do great, really. She likes south america, so hope something will happen here.

Jow Noone said it was right, we just said we think that's why.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro and Kiki at least won in doubles today (just).
I don't know much about Caro's coaching re: her dad, but when Aga left her father as coach her results really improved, while Wozniacki is still with her father as coach and she hasn't got better.
I don't know if her results would get better or worse with a new coach, but I just thought I would point out those two examples.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Unfortunately Caro is not a champion yet. She's still developing mentally and it might be a few years before she reaches that level.

It sounds like a poor excuse but these things do affect players. You even see great champions get affected by delays and other external factors. The rain delays came at bad times for Caro, and she had to go off court and it allowed Strycova to reset whilst Caro cooled down. Ideally Caro wouldn't be affected, but it stopped her momentum. It happens, even to the best at times.

But i agree with what the overarching point you both make. It is just at this particular time, i feel the rain played a part in why she lost.

Re: Caroline Garcia

A true champion would utilize such a rain delay to play even better after play resumes. Améliemomo is exactly right! As long as Caro stays in her safe environment, she will always stumble over the first obstacle that crosses her way during a match.

Re: Caroline Garcia

well sorry to disagree a bit cause this is tennis conditions, if she wants to get into next level she has to adapt and put frustration behind her

that's why I say she should work with someone outside her dad and family cocoon to become more mature

well giving her "the rain excuse" wont help her finally get this breakthrough we talked about

perhaps it will never happen, that's an eventuality I consider now

Re: Caroline Garcia

Yeah i agree here. Caro would have probably won without the rain delays. The one after the first set really halted the momentum she had built, and after a delay it is like starting over again.

you said she made some changes for that match, where have you read that? on l'Equipe?

the fact she got broken from the very 1st game of the 3rd set is a very BAD thing

what did her dad said? let me guess : "do what you did in 1st set, stay agressive and target the right spots?"

well we see that it was NOT ENOUGH cause strycova adapted her game plan and tactics

that break at 3-4, she HAD TO HOLD there, that's why these 2 have different ranking

and for someone as succeful in doubles her net skills were not successful enough!
No, she said that she is coming oncourt trying to do things more simply, and easier. Well here it was not the case.

I really think that without this fucking rain she would have win this one in 2. Strycova was not hitting the ball very well and Caroline played some incredible points. But each time the rain came out, it was Caroline's momentum, and she came down after the break. It is a bit sad actually, but i think she needs time to be in her match.
I think her match in Gstaad is really not like any other loss she had, she played first round on friday, right after what happent in Nice, and i think it was really difficult for her to be there. And i think that's why she took a week off instead of going to Bastad. I think it really affects her, and she is so tired by the rain, that i don't think it is revealing her real level.
After her match in Montreal, she said that she is so pissed off by the rain, and here i think this is the rain who beat Caroline.

Next is Florianopolis, let's see what will happen. She will probably be seed 3 (if JJ has the wc), and the field there seems so weak, so hope she will go at least in the final.
