Caroline was strong for so long, but at FO 2011 the talk was too much even for her. She bombed out to Hantuchova. Caroline is a strong, positive person, but not a robot. With each press conference the talk about not deserving #1 put more and more pressure on her to win a Grand Slam.
I dont think Caroline is under pressure to win a major. No one expects her to win a major in 2013.
What she has to do is get back to being a YEC player and start making deep runs in majors and Tier I's again.
Rory has the pressure. There are golf writers who are picking him to win more majors than Nicklaus or Tiger. He's expected to win and win and win.
For Caroline, no one would be surprised if she didnt win any title this year. She just went 14 months without a title, until the end of last year when players were tired and she won in fields without YEC players
The way she started this season, a total collapse is possible in 2013. She has to get focused and play each point in a way thats better than what she just did vs Pervak
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
