Vinci and Navarro are NOT better than Caroline on indoor clay
The clay indoors is faster than red clay outdoors. Caroline feels comfortable in Stuttgart on this surface. Remember she reached Stuttgart final.
BTW Vinci and Navarro are totally overranked players. They will never be #1 like Caroline. She is a million times better than both of them together.
There is no excuse if Caroline doesn`t reach QF here. She is seeded to reach QF and got a soft draw with no Jankovic, Ivanovic, Petkovic or Barthel.
