They try to get their opponent in a certain position and then you see them get more offensive, whether it's an Errani drop shot or an Agi inside out forehand. But with Caroline, I always get the sense she's content with just softly hitting everything back and waiting for an error. And when the pace is too much for her to handle, she moonballs out of desperation, not cunning. I just don't see real ability from her, but maybe I'm missing something.
This I agree with. I'll get crucified if I write this, but I actually sometimes really enjoy watching Aga play. It's different and refreshing. As far as Caro goes I don't know whether she changed something in her game recently ('cause I obviously don't watch her unless it's some special occasion-like her playing Maria), but the thing with her is that she doesn't have anything representative, there's no trademark, majority of the aspects of her game are good, but not a single one (bar maybe the BH) stands out as a spectacular one IMO
