Caro may add a small thing or two to her game in the future (and hopefully improve her serve) but it's unlikely she'll ever be hitting shots she doesn't fully believe in on a regular basis, so I think we must get used to the idea that this is pretty much what her game is... and then admire her for what she has accomplished with great stamina and spirit despite her limited hitting repetoire.
Well we'll probably never know as Caro's attempts at adding things like a 1-handed slice or dropshot seem to be dropped pretty quickly. A decent slice should be in the toolskit of a good defender.
Other players seem to be able to add to their games or improve existing aspects but Caro doesn't seem to be able to.
I find it frustrating that she can't get herself something basic like a decent/solid forehand or a good 1st serve.
The Babylon project was our last best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259, the name of the place is Babylon 5. (John Sheridan: Babylon 5: Season 2: The Coming of Shadows)
