The negative part is that she doesnt finish off matches the way she used to.
Everyone has tough matches along the way. Djokjovic almost lost to Wawrinka. You have to close, especially in early rounds against players who are not contenders for the title.
Thats something she really has to improve on. Its the main reason Vika has 2 majors and Caroline has none. You cant have match point on your serve in slam semi and then collapse. Those are the moments you have to be mentally ready for every shot of every point.
There are a lot of talented players who dont get thru draws. Part of it is Caroline's serve. Thats something she should be working on every practice. Her team should be studying all of her serves.
Here's a breakdown of the % of Caro & Vika's matches in which they won the 1st set and the match went to a 3rd set. This doesn't count any matches with retirements.
Caro in 2009: 20%
Caro in 2010: 19%
Caro in 2011: 12%
Caro in 2012-2013 so far: 30%
Vika in 2010: 16%
Vika in 2011: 14%
Vika in 2012-2013 so far: 9%
There was a time when this whole quadrant belonged to us! What are we now? Twelve worlds and a thousand monuments to past glories. Living off memories and stories, and selling trinkets. My god, man! We've become a tourist attraction. "See the great Centauri Republic - open 9 to 5 - Earth time."
