Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

Without the nerves ripping her conservative strategy apart Caro would have won that imho. Was a conservative strategy the right plan though? Not a single hup from Caro all night suggests that something was holding her back.

Freaking embarassing. Giorgi holds for 6-3 3rd set at 40-30 from 40-15. The match was 2 hours 32 minutes long.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

6-4, 4-6, 3-6. Giorgi was good tonight but not so good a more inspired Caro couldn't have won this match. In my opinion, Caro threw away the match at 2-2, 15-40 in the decider: that was THE point to take control of the match but Caro lacked the courage and just moved the ball around until Giorgi hit a winner. Caro's not likely to get a GS draw this good anytime soon, so we're unlikely to see even a decent GS result like a QF from Caro unless she really ups her game. Can a new coach do it? Maybe, if Caro is willing to change. That's her biggest problem in my eyes, her unwillingness to change/improve.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

This looked like it would be close but Caro had a great chance until her forehand fell apart.
This might have been the worst I ever saw it and she lost 8 of the last 11 games.
Her volleying and serve are still weak, but she has to be solid on both sides, not just backhand.

Strange part is that I was happy with the first 2 rounds and half of this match, then her forehand was so weak, it made her too low level to win

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

First of all, Giorgi is much better than 136 in the world. A ball basher she may be, but she's far from a brainless one. Good movement, good power and technique from both wings, good at the net, never panics and not a choke in sight at crucial moments. So well done is all I can say.

As for Caroline, well, I'm more disappointed for her than in her really. She must know that this was the draw of a lifetime and that it's unlikely that she will ever get an opportunity like this again. I think she competed well. She was probably too passive, but she's always reacting rather than acting against power hitters when they are on - nothing new there. The big problem (as always) is that forehand of course. She'll never get back to the elite as long as it stays the way it is. It's a really huge liability that will be exploited again and again. When you hit it as short and paceless like Woz all the opponent needs to do is step in and put it away, or at the very least it makes it easy for them to take the initiative.

So yeah, very disappointed, but not angry at Caroline. She's just not good enough to do any better, that's all.

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

I think there will be other draws. But that forehand. It just fell apart.
If she was winning and this was unusual, then okay. But she no titles this year and winning 2 matches makes it one of her best 2013 tournaments.

So this continuing to lose early is a big problem. Forehand a huge problem.
She could have left this tournament feeling she was back in the elite. But this match makes it look like her forehand, without good coaching, is a career killer. Everyone will be attacking that forehand after tonight

I think besides an injury, this was one of the worst things that could happen, beacuse it makes all the work she did to get more aggressive on her forehand side look like it destroyed that side in a bad way

Re: Caroline's Live Scoring Thread 12

This is the 7th time this year that Caro has lost to a player after winning the 1st set.
