Caroline Garcia has certainly made it interesting on the WTA tour these last couple of weeks. Defeats for top players looked like it would be a formality for Konta to go through to Singapore but her boarding pass is being held right now as Caroline is flying in more ways the one and Singapore is likely for the Frenchwoman.
Konta is on a five match losing streak and on a run like this you can’t say a place in the final 8 is warranted, things have fallen apart since Wimbledon and maybe a bit of that ‘what if?’ is in her mind?
For Caroline she was once tipped by Andy Murray to be the next big thing on the tour and comments like that are nice to receive but it adds unnecessary pressure from many in the media to push and then jump when they fall.
It is hard to forget she is only 23 and turns 24 in a couple of weeks time. To win the double in Wuhan and Beijing winning two titles in two weeks was unthinkable for her and is riding the wave and unless Konta makes the final in Moscow Caroline is flying to Singapore.
Through the tough times she believed and is now a champion and it might only just be beginning!
