I like all Caro's shots in this point: 1) A hard, well-placed serve that forces a somewhat passive return. 2) An agressive FH, not super hard and the opponent reads it right but struck deep and she follows it to the net. 3) A good defensive shot from the opponent to Caro's feet, forcing her to hit a difficult, low, one-handed BH volley. It's not always Caro has the 'soft' hands necessary to hit a short, controlled ball but here she did it very well. 4) The opponent manages to run down the short ball and hits an excellent lob. Caro backtracks quickly and - knowing without seeing where the opening must be - hits a controlled, two-handed BHDTL, the first winner I've seen Caro hit after running down a lob!
