But yes. I don't know what she can do at this point. She seems so stubborn about changing things and I fear that she's content now just to pick up decent prize money. I don't know what to say about her anymore
There's not much prize money to pick up if you always lose in the first or second round. Her biggest problem isn't even an unwillingness to change but the fact that she doesn't even play her usual game well anymore. If she were playing her level of 2012-2011 right now she wouldn't be #1 anymore because the top three are better now than Caro was back then. As a fan I have no problem accepting that. But she would still be among the leaders of the chasing pack up there with Radwanska and Li Na. But as it is her level has dropped so much that every top 100 player has a chance of beating her, and every top 30 player goes into a match with her as the favorite. She's lucky that she's still in the top 10 because if she had a low-ish ranking now there's no way she could work herself back up to the top 20 with how she's playing now. The sad thing is that she doesn't even seem to care. Maybe she does care, but where's the fight? The positive "over my dead body" language? All gone...
