This is a point I am stealing from terjw as he mentions it now and again. She really used to dominate her first couple of opponents but now she struggles to even win sets.
Because players had no belief they could beat Caro. People went on court knowing how well they had to play and for how long to win. But that is long gone. Caro has given the locker room enough evidence to believe. The fact her game isn't as solid anymore also contributes to slow starts.
