Well thinking that this match would be tougher than the one versus Arn was in fact not true ! Caroline played well better though than what she did against the Hungarian but yet she played a solid, focused and steady match !
But at the other side, Pavlyuchenkova acted sometimes like a Junior : got frustrated loads of time and even at times where it wasn't necessary ! She brought totally herself out of the match ! The double fault that gave Caroline Wozniacki the 1st break already was the nail on her coffin at 2-1 in the first in favor for the n°1 seed ! After that she turned into an error machine, lost completely her concentration despite at times hitting some very good points. She was on a self-destruction mode.
Yet Caroline did what she had to do ! I think Caroline can be satisfied about her match !
Her next opponent will be no one else than one of her if not her BFF : Agnieszka Radwanska. For me the real big test for Caroline there in Tokyo !
COME ON CAROLINE !!!
