Yeah, Brisbane/Sydney were awful results.
But I liked what I saw the 1st 2 rounds here. I didnt like some of her last match. Caroline was fortunate her opponent kept dumping balls into the net on routine groundstrokes.
I still think her ability to focus and play her old style for a full match and all week is a big question mark.
Thats why this match and certainly a QF with Vika will answer a lot of questions.
Its possible she has lost that mental edge that made her so formidable as a steady baseliner.
If she still has that mental toughness, she needs it the next 2 matches
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
