She got this far because Lisicki played crazy bad after being up 3-0 in set 3.
In her last match before Sveta, she was serving for the match, made 2 unforced backhand errors, but the girl she played just dumped routine balls in the net.
This was 3 tournaments with only 4 match wins. Now the last 4 majors she has a total of 5 match wins.
These are averages of losing in round 2.
From her loss in Copenhagen last year thru her loss to Begu, she won 14 of 24 matches over 4 months. Again an average of losing in round 2.
When she lost here last year and fell from #1 to #4, she didnt go train for Doha, she went to Dubai to watch Rory, then lost her 1st match in Doha.
She doesnt have a coach. That could be a big part of this current problem. She makes her training schedule. Its all within her comfort zone. She probably is the person who decided she would go for more high risk forehands back in summer of 2011.
So lets see how Sveta does against VIka, because Sveta took care of Caroline's 2013 Australia season
