But as far as Caro is concerned I don't mind. That girl doesn't have a mean bone in her body and if I was in a position to do so I would no doubt spoil her myself.
Having said that, I believe her when she says that there is less time for training since she became a name player. But for that, or for much of it anyway, she only has herself to blame. Don't bite of more than you can chew. As others have said, build your off-court activities around your tennis career and not the other way around. But of course, if you have lots of obligations away from tennis and also want to spend lots of time with your boyfriend it's only natural that your training, and as a result your tennis as well suffers.
Caro seems to want it all but it's clearly not working right now.
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."
