If you mean that she shouldn't have dismantled her game by doing something highly different then,yes,you're right.
If you meant that she shouldn't have done ANYthing to modify her play,then that would've been like waiting for Godot: Caroline waiting in vain for in-form players to make an UE on critical points instead of being able to put away such players with a key shot when necessary.It would've been the same slam SF--with perhaps a rare final thrown in--and always the same result.The Buffalo Bills went to the SB 4 years in a row and lost EVERY time...only the first one was competitive and,thereafter,they lost to a superior team from the other conference who knew how to exploit the weaknesses they failed to address
Caroline didn't just want to REACH Slam semis,she wanted to win the whole event,and that necessitated some additional ingredients;unfortunately,she went about adding them in the wrong way
