I think Caro and her team should sit down and have a look at that Kerber vs Aga match I've just seen and then compare that to her own matches. Aga won't always play as well as that and some of the clever shots and magic Aga does - Caro never has had that touch. But look at:
- Aga gets everything back and with shots that more often than not that pose problems.
- No matter how long the rallies and how many Ooohs and Aaghs and the crowd thinking the point has ended on a winner but it still goes on - Aga doesn't make UEs on this or the next point or the next point after that or the whole match.
- Aga hits winners by finishing off points.
- Aga has improved her serve.
And that's leaving out the clever shots and the bits of magic.
In 2010-2011 - Caro was the best defensive player and must have been one of the best all time. Where's that gone?
