Sounds like codependency. It used to work for Caro. In the past, she was able to make changes after Piotr's yelping. Not anymore, poor girl has no confidence left.
Regardless of his despicable tone, Piotr was right. Caro seemed completely clueless and unprepared against Ksenia. What Piotr misses however is that, as her coach, he should take full responsibility for Caro's dismal form.
Makes one wonder about Caro's priorities at the moment too. Tennis seems not to be one of them. On the bright side, it was just a first match of the new season, hope dies last!
