Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Great to see her in a trophy presentation ceremony. I missed Seoul and it had been quite a while since the last time she was in one of them. She really spoiled us circa mid 2010/mid 2011.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Caro wins 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 in 2h14m and wins her first Premier level titel in 14 months and her 20th title overall!
In set 1 Stosur was bad, in set 2 they were both pretty bad but set 3 had a lot of good tennis. I think most of us thought Caro was going to lose when she went down 0-2 in the decider, losing the 5th of her last 6 serve games. But Caro showed some of her old fighting spirit, picked herself up and got back in the match. Stosur had a good streak from 4-3 in set 2 to 1-3 in set 3 but then she was up and down again. She has a deadly game when she's on but she also showed today why she's 3-12 in finals: nerves.
Caro dared to go for her shots today, not on every point but often enough to be dangerous. She served 75% with 0 aces and 0 DFs! I hope it's because of the special surface and she'll get back to a more bity serve next tournament. She was pretty good at the net in set 1 but at some point she lost the confidence to go forward and tried to finish the points from the backcourt. She was just sharp enough for it to work today but if she's to get back in the top 5 next year, she'll need a confident net game.

Last year Caro finished #1, this year she'll finish #10 or so. But I actually feel more optimistic about her future than I did at this point last year. Caro was in freefall then, going down and just hadn't lost her #1 ranking yet. Now she's ranked lower but she's heading in the right direction, up, both in her game and in the rankings. I feel better about 2013 than I did about 2012.

NB: I've attached both the match stats and the funny scoreline where the editor had given Stosur an extra game

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

A quick impression: I think she's got a bit of the old spark back. She won this because she stayed with it. Hope it's a permanent return of ignition

Indeed. I often bellyache about her inability to break but she did quite well.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread v 10

Lucky sods who saw the trophy presentation. Eurosport cut away. But yes, Caro can speak some Russian, it's not that far remove from Russian. I'm gathering my thoughts for a racquet reaction. But it was great to see Caro finally hitting her forehand like she does in practise for a whole match. It took time, but Chris Bradnam actually said twice "And the forehand down the line once again to the rescue for Wozniacki." Now will "you" believe me?

No.

If she can be consistent with it I will seriously consider believing you.

But you know now she does have it. Consistency is just a question of archiving it in muscle memory.

It's kind of funny but Stosur actually has a worse record in tiebreaks this year than Caro. Caro is 10-8 (56%) and Stosur 9-13 (41%) after Moscow.

Hmm, maybe but I don't think it is quite that easy. I will be delighted if she proves me wrong.
