Historically she has a tendency to run into hurdles, bounce a few times, vanquish, and then go forth and conquer? It's all new ground to her now though... From personal experience when you reach the very top of your field you are left with nothing but a view... At that moment you need to reflect of the journey during the climb to hope to realise just exactly what and how you got there... Quite often what you though brought you success wasn't what brought it at all. It's quite a a vacuous mindfuck for a while.
Final guess is back to normal by AO 2014 after a really poor australian swing and a relatively successful Asian swing, and reaching full potential by 2017, but don't quote me.
I dunno. I'm waiting for some sign that Caro's good execution of some shot or overall good matches aren't random anymore.
She could have it turned around next season or still be playing inconsistently 4 years from now.
There are lots of players who can play a good match every now and a reasonable number who can play a good tournament occasionally. But playing good tournaments on a consistent basis isn't common and it isn't that often that somebody goes from inconsistent to consistent.
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."
