Re: Caroline Garcia

yes she should play fed cup every day, once again today she made the job against giorgi, so MUUCH PRESSURE there, Schiavone and Errani staying in front of her cheering for giorgi to make the come back

so proud of this team along with kristina, they can be proud of them cause it was far from easy even if we win 3.1, the semis will be open against Netherlands but YEAHHHH

GREAT FROM CAROLINE after the AO disappointment

Re: Caroline Garcia

who is that girl??? this caroline is not the same as we can see on the tour

it must be the "fed cup effect" but God what she did to take the break and lead 6.5 in this 2nd set
she went for it and took it from the annoying italian player and all this crowd cheering loudly for her

I hope she'll take all the positive vibes from this fed cup experience, after kristina nightmare against giorgi SHE HAD TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN
She did it and so RESPECT

Hope tomorrow Kristina to beat Errani and Caro giving the tie point to the team

Re: Caroline Garcia

Yeah, if anything that match was acted as a detriment to Caro's career. She showed her talent at a very young age on a big stage and has had the pressure and hype behind her since.

This has been going on ever since Murray's (in)famous comments during her match against Sharapova at the 2011 FO, and that was over four and a half years ago. She was close to achieving a breakthrough, but ended up self-destructing mentally because she got too nervous. How many times has that happened since?

Re: Caroline Garcia

Yeah, she is not Federer who can take the ball that early.

Caro needs to play more to her strengths rather than trying to be a player that she is not. She is talented enough to play a more varied game than she does.

I agree with the comments about her needing a slam breakthrough.

And this is why her “stepping-into –the-court approach” makes no sense at all. Additionally, she doesn’t have the appropriate technique (especially on the forehand side) to execute this kind of return of serve.

In general, I think her lack of anticipation is caused by her tightness in competitive situations. It’s simply hard to stay in the flow during a match when you get as nervous as Caroline.

I agree with all the comments that were made in here in the aftermath of her defeat. I think what she urgently needs is a breakthrough match at a slam; a match that she turns around in dramatic fashion despite being on the brink of defeat. This kind of battle would maybe transform her mentality and self-belief.

Re: Caroline Garcia

It isn't an awful loss when you digest it. I was just really wanting a Caro-Garbine match that i was disappointed not to get it. Also given how she played in HC and Sydney i thought she would do well.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Strycova had higher ranking than Caro during almost the whole 2015 season. It's not like "she had to win for sure" i am not ok. Strycova can be very tricky opponent, and i think she had less pressure than Caro i GS. She is not on grand slam of losing 1st round of GS like Caro.... it's really not like the loss against Vekic, this one was more unsure, players had same rankings or not so far. Strycova has two faces, and against Caroline she was really focus and did not so much ue. Caroline had to go for the game, Strycova did not give points.
I think Strycova is a player seeds are happy to not face in 1st round of GS, like Cibulkova or Bouchard. She might be seeded few weeks ago.
I hope she will work hard, again and again. But i am confident for this new season. Well, i don't expect so much in GS, but one day she will be very good in GS, for sure. She just needs more time, but we can't make any conclusion about ONE match she did wrong actually. She did very well in Hopman Cup, she did very well in Sydney during one match and against Halep it was more up and down, but not so bad. So lets see what will happen in next tournaments.
