Re: Caroline Garcia

Caro lost in straight sets 6-2 7-5
She had 2 set points in the 2nd and tossed in a horrible double fault on one of them and then fell apart. I think she won about 1 of the last 15 points
A waste - but she obviously wasn't going to beat Serena anyway.

Re: Caroline Garcia

super caro

she still very rusty and against strycova she has no choice, she has to go for it, give her all!

I watched strycova matchs and Caro really has to practice her serve and shots down the line. Dont give her time to make you visit the court; her shots must be long too. Contrepieds are also very efficient cause she's rushing to the middle after big serve. Play her behind is a good tactic.

I watched some highlights against petkovic and she uses her forehand to make her move and her backhand to settle her game.

be ready also to come to the net cause if she loses 1st set she has to make something happen to make strycova doubt. This girl can doubt big but you have to pressure her and not give her "free points", nor angles.
she can auto destruct BUT you have to be consistent and "deadly" at the same time.

Tough equation for Caroline who must think she's playing Fed Cup to give her best there

Just fight and give it all. I wish to see her turn into SUPER SAYAN CARO lol (remember the fed cup finale frustration, time to avenge)

Re: Caroline Garcia

First step - getting seeded at Slams.

Second step - living up to her seeding at Slams.

Third step - breakthrough at Slam level.

It would be nice if the third step could happen right now, but I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't. If it still hasn't happened by the end of the season, on the other hand...

Re: Caroline Garcia


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

Caro and Kiki start the doubles with a 6-1 6-2 win over Bencic and Konjuh

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
