Heinz Gunthart(s/p) Coach of the year

He did an amazing job w/Steffi, and now appears to be whipping Jenn's game into shape. Jenn always had crisp clean strokes, Heinz seems to have imparted more strategy and belief.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Haven't seen the match yet, but Jenn layed out her game plan yesterday, and it seems to have worked.

he is doing a nice job with jennifer. jennifer needs to take this in stride. although i think the sisters just need more match play, Jennifer needs to take all the positive she can out of this. she is now the highest seed left in this grandslam and has the best chance to win this title now. if she doesn't take advantage of this i don't know if she will ever win a slam again. but she should take all positive out of this. The sisters, again i think they just need more match play. all in all Mauresmo is what is most shocking to me. i just new she would do the chocking in the finals at least. But quarters is where it seems to be the sweet spot for her. But i hear Dementieva played really well. Still expect a williams to win Wimbledon easily though. They dominate that tournie most of all.

she explained it to the french tv after the match.
Play through the center to prevent Serena from making angels, and going for her shots when she has the chance. Same thing Kim and Justine did (tried to do) to beat Serena. Wait untill you have seen the match. Still, for a player, it's always great to beat Serena two times in a row .

More match play?

Venus was on a 19+ match win streak, if she needed more match play she should have played better today.

I agree he seems to have given Jennifer more self belief and encouraged her to go for it more.

Shame he couldn't do the same for Dokic.

Although I'm dissappointed the Serena lost I'm very happy for Jennifer, b/c many fans including myself get so frustrated at players who have a problem with there game and do nothing to fix it. Well Jennifer def stepped up, dumped dad (respectfully), and found someone to help her with her game!! She is the last American standing, GO JEN get the Title.

I still think 02 A.O. would trump this one should she win it all


Jenn on Heinz

"JENNIFER CAPRIATI: Well, you know, nothing really like technique-wise. Just a couple things maybe that I was doing. You know, my game is to be aggressive and basically, you know, I mean my forehand is, I think, my best shot. And just, you know, set points up like that. And also working more on the net and things like that. You know, basically just trying to enhance, you know, what I already have, I think.

And just a little bit strategy-wise, you know. I think it's just the whole idea of, you know, before a match, just sitting down and talking about what I'm gonna do and go out there with a plan. This helps my focus better, you know, so I'm not just going out there and just hitting tennis balls, you know. So I think he's helped in that way."

The last paragraph really sums it all up. She has a plan beyond going out and just hitting the hell out of the ball.

GO JENNIFER!
