Had she felt too much pressure she'd just do the same as JJ, start playing mediocre to get rid of the ranking as soon as possible.
Caro lost no.1 more naturally, she simply ran out of steam and her game was no longer good enough thanks to the experiments. I think she regretted experimenting with her game later on and now talked about getting the ranking back at some point. (Will be tough though)
I wish Caroline had stayed with the style that got her to #1. To change her style of play and keep winning was asking an awful lot.
It also broke up the natural progression as you improve at age 21, 22.
It was a big setback, but the longterm effect might not hurt, if she can get the mental part back. A lot of losses affects confidence
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
