hi vale! how are you doing?

the article says that he once trained with her in saddlebrook for a week and that he will acompany jennifer to the tournament in berlin. what happens after berlin isn't clear yet.

so the expression "coach" might be a bit far-fetched. yet.

Heinz Günthardt wird Capriati-Coach




STOCKHOLM – Neuer Job für Heinz Günthardt: Der Ex-Coach von Steffi Graf wird Trainer von Jennifer Capriati.

Das Engagement ist vorerst auf das Turnier in Berlin beschränkt. «Ich habe schon einmal eine Woche mit ihr in Saddlebrook trainiert. Vor zwei Tagen kam dann die Anfrage, ob ich sie nicht in Berlin begleiten wolle», so der in Schweden wohnhafte dreifache Familienvater, der auch noch gelegentlich als TV-Co-Kommentator arbeitet.

Ob er auch anschliessend in Rom oder allenfalls darüber hinaus dabei ist, weiss er noch nicht: «Ich lasse alles auf mich zukommen.» Capriati gewann in ihrer Karriere drei Grand-Slam-Turniere, zuletzt das Australian Open 2002, und war während 17 Wochen die Nummer 1. In diesem Jahr hat sie bislang nur vier Turniere mit mässigem Erfolg bestritten. Im Ranking ist sie auf Platz 8 abgerutscht.




Heinz G. will be Capriati's coach!
STOCKHOLM: A new job for HG: the ex coach of Steffy Graf will become Capriati's coach.

The cooperation will first take place @ the tournament of Berlin. "I've already worked with her for one week in Sadlebrook. Two days ago, the question came, whether I wanted to coach her during the Berlin tournament." says the familyfather who lives in Sweden and who regularly works as a co-commentator on TV.

If he will be there in Rome too, and maybe even after that, he doesn't know yet. "I just let thing come as they come" Capriati wopn 3 GStpournaments in her carreer, the latest was the AO in 2002 and she was nr1 for 17 weeks. This year, she has only played four tournaments uptill now, with average succes. She's stuck @ the 8th place on the rankings...











not a perfect translation, but still

I think Heintz would be a GREAT coach for Jenny. He obviously has had great success with another tennis player with a huge forehand (steffi!!) and I think he would be a good match for Jen because he will help her set up her matches to use her forehand, which is lethal when channeled properly. And if it doesnt work out, that is ok, because Jen is mixing it up and trying to find the right coaching situation for her--- this is a great indicator that she wants to make a go at winning more titles!!!


GO JENN!!!

This is intersting news. I noticed that tennisx posted that Jen was still thinking about working with Craig. Maybe she wants to try out both coaches before deciding on one.

Very interesting. Good to see the Capster willing to try out new coaches,
and different approaches. I'm curious to see what he'll try tweak in
her game.
