I suspect that by the end of the year she will either be doing much better or big changes are going to happen.
Dad-daughter relationships are very difficult to understand, I had a friend of mine who was in Italian national team and she was coached by dad and said they were perfect because they were never talking of skiing at home, but since she got injured she prefered to quit the sport rather than go to another coach.

I can definitely Caro prefer to call it a carreer rather than going against dad

they surely do that since every sportsmen does it, whichever the sport is, it would be a great flaw not to use video supports to improve.

Honestly I am very worried by the trend she's taken though, I've seen a video someone posted of her tournament win in Las Vegas a few years ago and she seemed to play harder strokes and missing much less, now she hits puffballs often in the middle of the court and makes a lot of terrible UEs. IMHO it's all in her head, one can't forget how to play...but in all that I still think the racket change didn't help either.
