A good draw for Caro in my opinion. Konta struggles on clay so a round 4 is possible if Caro decides to show up
You beat me to it I thought Aga would withdraw TBH.

Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro's section of the French Open draw:

(7)Konta v Hsieh
(Q) v Townsend
(wc)Paquet v Kr. Pliskova
Hibino v (28)Garcia

(20)Strycova v Riske
Cornet v Babos
Osaka v (Q)
(wc)Ferro v (9)Radwanska

Looks an ok section with Pliskova who she beat yesterday and Konta who she beat this year (and Konta apparently isn't that good on clay). If she got through all that it could be Strycova though

Re: Caroline Garcia

Hopefully playing in front of a home crowd can get her over the line this time.

From what she has been saying, i think she is learning to embrace the support rather than let it put pressure on her. Hopefully she can use it at Roland Garros!

Didn't see this match but now she has Gavrilova again

nazzac Caro rather fortunate today with her win.

Was down 5-1 in the first. Caro fought back well but Pliskova started to struggle with injury.

One of the dumbest things was Caro trying to blast return winners against a struggling opponent on set point in the 1st. Just put the ball into play!!!

Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro won again 6-3 6-3 against Linette.

Didn't see the match, but it seemed comfortable enough for Caro. Nice to see her back to winning matches.

Next is Kris Pliskova. Big server, and a powerful leftie. However, she is not a good mover and Caro should beat her on clay. Allez Caro!!

Caroline def. Jennifer Brady 63 64

A solid performance from Caro against a good ballstriker. I would even say she played quite a smart match for her standards.

Her next opponent is Magda Linette who beat Vera Lapko in three sets.

(4)Suarez Navarro v Osaka
McHale v Petkovic

Well, with Strasbourg points already off, she won't be in seeds 24, so this can't happen before R4...
I hope she will win some matchs in Strasbourg!

Re: Caroline Garcia

So Caro is playing Strasbourg next week. I guess she was obligated to as defending champion (and the event is in France). Normally I don't like to see my favs play the week before the slam, but this time I think she could do with a few matches before the French Open.

I really like the way Caro has handled herself in the whole situation. She has come across in the little she has said as a class act in my view, and the fact she does not respond to any of the public shading shows she will not drag herself down to their level. If Kiki keeps talking, she is just going to keep digging a bigger hole. I sense a lot of people warming to Caro during this whole thing which is nice to see.

It is hard to judge Caro at the moment. It is a shame her injury and her issues with the Fed Cup etc.. have plagued her. Hopefully she can pick up now and get some good results.

Re: Caroline Garcia

That was the kind of key match that Caro is always going to lose sadly.

But on the other hand, my impression was that her form has progressed a bit recently, so that I somehow have a good feeling in view of Roland Garros.

There is something in the air with regard to this year's French Open. Some strange things might happen like a total surprise winner or an early encounter between Caroline and Kristina on Philippe Chatrier.
May 17th, 2017 01:53 PM
nazzac Not a surprise really.

What Daria lacks in game she makes up for with her fiestiness and will power. She is one of those players that are annoying to play against because she does not go away.

A difficult match for Caro mentally.
