Well Played, Caroline.

And I’m not talking about her straight sets revenge win over Dominika Cibulkova last night, which was pretty painful to watch. I’m talking about her press conference, where she turned the tables on the assembled journalists by first answering their questions (before they had a chance to ask them) and then soliciting more interesting questions from the floor. It’s a savvy way to win over the press, and it’s great reading. Check it out.
Also, she played cricket at the MCG. And yes, that’s Peter Siddle. If she had a plan to win over the press, especially the British and Australian sections of it, she’s going the right way about it. She’ll face Anastasija Sevastova in the round of sixteen after the Latvian saw off qualifier Vesna Manasieva in straight sets.
