I still think she need a weapon too get her outta trouble like making her serve better. But those loses She look too me she give up, & that very unlike her & that something I she need too stop IMO
I don't think that she gave up, but after some disappointing results doubts start to creep into her mind when the going gets tough and those doubts inevitably have a impact on her play. Opponents are aware of that of course and whereas Caro used to have a mental edge in close matches this is no longer the case.
