The Rising Young American Caroline Smith(RETIRED)

Bit of Info about career: Started off 2011 (her career) badly losing most matches. She headed IW with a 2-6 WL record but turned it around at a bit winning 3 matches in a row with some comebacks and upsets. She however didn't develop consistency as she lost in round 1 of her next two tournaments. She made another Quarter-Final at Charleston pulling of the biggest win of her life against Rufflina Taliamanosoko after being bageled in the first set. Caroline began to develop more concistency as she got a tough three set win at Stuttgart before losing in R2. Caroline has began to win 1-2 matches each tournament on clay and hopes to start going further in tournaments. She made her only doubles splash with Athea Kane when they shockingly came and won the Rome title. Athea/Caroline is currently a permanent partnership. Caroline entered a slump after losing in the second round of the French Open and did not win a match in singles or doubles until wimbledon. Caroline had some nice results on the ending her 3 tournaments with a win loss of 6-3 and scoring a huge victory over 2011 RG and Wimbledon champion Pamela Bowdon and reaching her first singles semi-final in petange. After a disappointing Hard Court season, Caroline entered the US Open with a very tough draw. She defeated RG Semi-Finalist Brenda Gaga-Maduga before losing to title favorite Siri Cornesston in three sets. In doubles and mixed doubles she lost in the second round. In Quebec she lost first round in singles but partening Jookrae Mensarb won the doubles title. Right before her final match she learned her younger sister had been murdered and dedicated the final to her and vowed to win. Smith and Mensarb will be playing together for the rest of the 2011 Season. Caroline Smith retired at the end of 2011 saying "My short time in FWTT was short but sweet with it's ups and downs but now it's time for me to move on."

Caroline Smith:

Just arrived in Paris after relaxing and practicing lightly (I needed it badly). Had a french burger which tasted amazing! Got ambushed by 14 year old boys asking for my autograph! Gotta love being a tennis player. Going out with a bunch of friends who came with me from SF! Allez!

Re: Caroline Smith's Results, News, Blog and More

Caroline Smith:

Paired up with singles defending champion Athea Kane after our amazing Rome title. I wish her luck in her quest to defend her title. I play Fatima Mayou who I have beaten 1-2 times now. I hope for a great tournament. I also just saw that Maddonna an Opreah picked me to win my way into the quarter-finals! That would be awesome! Anyway I have been doing serious work on my serve and it is actually improving now! I am about to go to dinner and then a party! Can't wait to get onto the court!

Caroline Smith:
Won my Match 7-6(6) 6-1 hitting 28 winners and only 15 UE's. It was a pretty solid performance and i'm happy with myself. I now have a long rest which I am looking forward too. Anyone know a good place for Pasta? i'm also playing mixed doubles with my brother Dan Smith who is currently ranked 2 on the men's tour. I'm looking forward to playing more!

Caroline suffers painful exit.

Caroline suffered a painful exit today as she lost 12-10 in the third set leaving the court in tears. She refused to be interviewed.

Before that match the Rome champs Caroline and Athea Kane won 14-12 in the 3 set.

Re: Caroline Smith's Results, News, Blog and More

Caroline breaks down on the court during her doubles

Caroline Smith broke down on the court today during her doubles match and against close American friend Harper J who she played Fed Cup with and Siri C. She missed a overhead during her match and fell into the clay crying. She was comforted by Athea and after receiving a warning for wasting time. She refused to be interviewed. During her interview Athea said that it was a personal problem but would not say would it was. "She will tell when she's ready". Caroline seems to be having problems and is not posting and her whereabouts are unknown currently.

Re: Caroline Smith's Results, News, Blog and More

Caroline Smith:

It was a tough tournament for me and i'm having some family problems so my breakdown was not tennis releated. Honestly I don't feel like competing in the grass season but I have too and have three tournaments coming up. I have arrived in Birningham and have to play qualies which sounds even worse. I feel sick and really the last thing I want to do is go and play tennis. But i'm already committed so...

Caroline Smith:

I'm feeling a bit better and praying for a win to boost my confidence. My serve is holding back my game on grass. After my loss in Birniingham I practiced a lot. I hope it will show.
