Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro

Good win for her. She could probably have done with a three setter given she had no matches heading into the tournament.

Not looking forward to the next match because Barbie is a bad match for Caro, but let's hope she has learned some lessons and gets the result we desire.

Re: Caroline Garcia

So finally we know now that Caroline had issues on her back during preparation... and that's why she did not play Sydney. She was not ready.
Let's see what will happen next rd, but a win over Strycova and a first 2nd week in GS would be very good. Let's go Caroline

Re: Caroline Garcia

I wasn't being totally serious. Although some people did say they wanted Caro to play Strycova in the posts just above.

The match we all wanted? I certainly did NOT!! It's gonna take something really special from Garcia to beat Strycova... Her game does not really bother her.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Yes she was moving heavily, was late on her shots sometimes

she had an intv before the mach with eurosport journalist, she said she wants to be top10 and wont play fed cup this year. That she would prefer Mary and Yannick (Noah) to come and see her after the Australian Open...

she said she tried many rackets after the US Open and finally chose Yonex, she feels good using this racket (VCore 100), she has more controle with it
she said also she want to be more solide , not making too many errors, become consistent.

I actually think it was quite a good match cause she was using a new racket, it was the 1st match.Let's hope she'll get relax more and more and enjoy her game more and more

Re: Caroline Garcia

She struggled with the heat?

I could be wrong, but this is interesting because i have never seen her struggle much with heat before (at least i can't remember it).

Lack of preparation taking it's toll maybe?

I think the same but she must beat dodin then play her best and beat this girl strycova who prevented her from the best moments in her career (dubai SF, Fed Cup Finale). I watched her match on eurosport player and yes she seemed suffering the heat.

I was quite surprised cause she did more BDTL than she used to. She was a bit late in hitting her shots, especially on the backhand side. She must believe in herself.

Océane wont let her time and will bomb her so better be ready

they are scheduled 1st in show court 3

Allez!

Re: Caroline Garcia

Interesting way of looking at it. I agree to an extent but i really want to see her face Serena on Rod Laver arena!

Re: Caroline Garcia

Well she won in straight sets so we can not ask for much more. I think Caroline has gotten better at winning these matches because a few years i go i think she would have lost this.

I think she will beat Dodin. Hopefully Strycova gets knocked out

Re: Caroline Garcia

I saw the match. They played great match actually. At the end of 1st set, it was very interesting with some good points. But Bondarenko helped her a little bit when she had the break. Once she did 3 doubles...
Anyway, the win is there, and in 2nd set it was obvious she was suffering from the heat. Good that she won. And sad for next rd

Re: Caroline Garcia

Considering that this was Caro's first match of the year, she was quite solid. Congrats !!

Caroline if you want your breakthrough here you'll have to go DOWN THE LINE more!try to surprise your opponent.
Yes, being able to hit a down-the-line backhand out of a crosscourt shot from the opponent is what separates the great players from the normal ones. Crosscourt ballbashing may appear impressive at first sight, but in the end it's pretty useless.

It's time for Caro to add a few champions elements to her game.

As for this tournament, I am cautiously optimistic.
