Caro came from down 4-0 3rd set against Cibulkova in the 2nd round of Sydney to win the set 6-4. That was the 1st time that Caro has won a match on the senior level being down a double break in the 3rd set.
I think that the last time Caro before that match that Caro came back from down a double break in a set was against Petkovic in the quarters of Stuttgart last year. Caro was down 4-1 1st set 40-15 and Ad Petkovic (Petkovic serving) but rallied to win the set 6-4.

I was looking up the results of some Caro's early years on the tour and found out about a few comebacks I didn't know about:
Against Woerle in the quarters of the 2006 $25k Civitavecchia challenger: down 6-4 2-0 but won the set 7-6 (6), down 3-0 3rd set 40-15 but won the set 7-5.
Against Hrozenska in the quarters of the $25k Istanbul 2 challenger: saved 3 match points.
Against Brianti in the final of the 2007 $75k Ortisei challenger: was down 6-4 2-0 but won the 2nd set 7-5 and the 3rd set 6-3.
Against Foretz in the 1st round of Memphis in 2007: Foretz served for the match at 5-4 2nd set and 6-5 2nd (double faulted on a match point there), down 3-0 in the 2nd set tiebreak but won it 7-5 and the 3rd set 6-3.
Now her career needs a comeback. Thats the story now. Can she become relevant again?
I dont understand why she never took this slump seriously. She needed to go months & months without a title to finally listen to a coach, and he never coached before.
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
She doesn't really need a 'comeback', she is still a top 10 player. Even top 20 is a great position to be in. Losses happen, it's not the end of the world.
Her new coach never coached before. So what? Every coach started once.
Caroline came back today against Li Na in Toray and won 46 63 64 was down 2-0 in the third set and also down two BP and saved when severing out the match

Caro came from down 7-6 (5) 3-0 2nd set 40-15 and Ad Hsieh (game points) against Hsieh in the 2nd round of Beijing to win the 2nd set 7-6 (3). She would go on to win the 3rd set 6-0. This was the 1st time that Caro came from a set and a double break down to win a match as far as I'm aware.
Caro came from down 3-1 3rd set against Stosur in the final of Moscow to win the 3rd set 7-5.
