Well when I was speaking about premier tournaments, I was making reference to $4,500,000 premier, I think they call them Mandatory (ex-Tier I) (I'm not quite accustom with all those premier tourney things).:wavey:Caro has won a premier tournament, 3 of them actually: Eastbourne and New Haven this year, New Haven last year (tier II).
It's been awhile since I payed close attention, but last I heard Martina had no real interest in coaching. Besides that Martina can't help Caro with a lot of the things she needs to improve: closing out sets/matches, being more aggressive, improving her forehand, and 2nd serve. Plus Martina couldn't coach her unique abilities/characteristics and great players often don't make good coaches.
I think she has the talent to win one or plenty of those and as a top 5 now for Caro it would be to my mind a big achievement in her growing career if she could start winning some Mandatories.
It would impose her with that USO final as maybe contender for most of the other GS.
I'm saying that because Caro will not allways get the luck she got at the USO and there will necessatily be GS where Caro will have to beat lets say Serena, Venus and Jankovic if she wants to make the finals and if she shows that she can allready do that in a Mandatory well she's making a big step !
I agree. The aspects I was making reference as Martina-coach is the intelligence of the game and the way to use the angles. That's the style of game Caro uses but it's mostly short and not very destabilizing I find compared to those who uses that style the best !
