I think Sharapova was right also. Individuals have different talent & styles.
Having kids out hitting like an assembly line, hoping one becomes a superstar, doesnt give each individual a chance to develop their unique skill set.

I think what made Caro so great WAS the unusual forehand and defensive style.
I think to be her best, she has to build on that in a way that her skill set is still showing off her unique talents.
Thats what I'm looking at in 2013. Is she using what she does well, and adding to that?
I dont believe breaking down her game & rebuild it is the right thing, unless they rebuild it to use her unique talents

The problem with slow courts, like Moscow & Istanbul (this year) is that so many long rallies wear players down. YEC they're all exhausted
