Garbi should hire her as her sports psychologist

Are these the same tools that boycotted Gala Leon?

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

Re: Spanish tennis federation kicked Martinez OUT from DC and Fed Cup

It's expected she will be replaced by either VRP, MJMS or AMG on the Fed cup side and Sergi Bruguera will take over her Davis cup role.

Re: Spanish tennis federation kicked Martinez OUT from DC and Fed Cup

It's sad that a country with such importance in tennis has a federation like this. Italian, French and Spanish federations seem to not have done their images any favours this year. Luckily for the spaniards they had a lot of great players in the past and present who might take the role (although a former great player is not necessarily great in that).

Defeat doesn't finish a man, quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits.

Does seem a strange decision but maybe some teams just can't handle winning.

the next victims of Spanish federation, you mean

I hope Anabel does well, but I'm still pissed about Conchi's dishing out

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

So, does this affect Aljona somehow?

CM should go for a coaching job. She can earn more than that.

I agree. Do they need this treatment in their lives?!
