Players are fully aware of that fact, they know if you hang around long enough in a match with Caroline you will get chances.
Losing 2 and 4 to Muguruza even though we didn't see it just suggests she was thoroughly outplayed from start to finish. We saw a match with Pervak at the beginning of the year where when the match got tight it was the world number 103 stepping up to the plate and taking it to Caroline, ultimately punching through her. I saw a match with Voegele a couple of weeks ago where I didn't even think Voegele was playing great tennis, Caro started this match in total control, by the end Voegele was dictating play and having Caro run all over the court. Of course this would be fine if these occasions were rare, you could just chalk it down to a bad day at the office then. But these aren't one off anomalies, they're almost the expected outcome in tournaments now.
Now its 2 full years. No one wants their career to self-destruct, especially after such a promising beginning.
She just cant focus like she used to.
To me, that means she'd better take hardcourt majors seriously, because if she still can play one tournament like 2012 Miami or 2013 Dubai, IW.. Be sure you have that kind of focus at hardcourt majors
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
