Just look at Caro, she has an almost unhealthy amount of respect for her, you sometimes feel she's happy just to be on the same court as her. That isn't helpful, it's no coincidence that most of these girls fail to reach anywhere close to their full potential when playing her.
Sometimes you have to respect the player and say well done. I mean do you really expect Caroline to be giving a challenge to Serena on grass considering her year? I know she beat her in Miami but she hasn't done a thing since then. If it's any consolation Caroline give more trouble to Serena than Maria or Vika does. They don't move as well as caroline does, which is the first step in getting Serena off her game. All of us fans know that.
