It's impossible to make any conclusions based on an exho, especially when it comes to Caro. I've never known her to do well in any of them, not even when she was at her best. Part of the reason is that I don't think she really cares and she needs the intensity of a real match to be effective. Maria is different because she's such a great shotmaker and can hit winners even if she's only giving it 60%. But even by her own exho standards Caro played pretty poorly here and at times Maria really tried to keep her in the match I feel. But she has three more weeks to sort herself out before the real tennis starts, so we'll see.
