Caroline Garcia, a label too heavy to carry


Far from her dreams of conquest, the French number 1, eliminated in the round of 16 of the Australian Open, will have to digest.

Crushed by the weight of expectation on the occasion of a first major semi-final at the US Open, Caroline Garcia had, last September, assured that the episode would serve her.

In Melbourne, the Lyonnaise, eliminated 7-6 (7/3), 6-4 by the Polish Magda Linette, was once again overtaken by the event, its external and intimate ricochets.

Long-awaited, placed among the candidates for the title, Caroline Garcia has, in Melbourne, never found the spirit of enterprise, the relaxation which allows to play with the lines.

She was like a plane without wings, as CharlElie Couture used to sing.

Encumbered by a status carried like a burden.

the vice of a fallback strategy which, on days when capricious inspiration slumbers, will allow him to win without shining.

Waiting for better games.
