I don't know about you, but I consider Paszek to be a better grass court player than Caro even before this season.
How low do you have Caro in the grass court rankings then? I don't really have set rankings by surface in my mind. But looking at this draw there looks far worse draws to me than a heavily out of form, carrying an injury player, even if she has done well here and on this surface in the past. I can't imagine Paszek is top 10 even on grass.
When I say this isn't a bad draw, that doesn't mean Caro will win, it's just Caro has to start winning these sorts of matches, because if you are not then there are way too many people in the draw who are getting the better of you, and then quite frankly Caro doesn't deserve to be top 10.
