As Goldenlox hints at,Caroline will have a difficult test against the elite players,some of whom can overpower her when they're not making many errors.From what I saw of the match--and I actually WATCHED it instead of reading the post-match line like a couple of ignorant stats geeks did
--Caroline didn't play badly except for a few brief moments(and even elite players have a couple bad moments during matches).Her problem is that she still hasn't mastered that one aspect of superb defensive tennis where one can use an opponent's pace against her and turn around even some powerful shots.Whenever she makes big improvements in that one area,she'll get hit off the court much less often

Ste. Kim, we didn't have you for long enough, but we appreciate what you gave us
How many wins do you need to distinguish yourself as a WTA Rising Star--as opposed to a mediocre, Treading Water Star?
