Brad Gilbert to coach Serena Williams..WTF?!

O...M...G...

I was just watching the baseball game on ESPN and you know how they have those promos for Sportscenter with stories for later tonight? Well the anchor said, after some other thing, "And Serena Williams adopts Andy Roddick's former coach, Brad Gilbert, for coaching. Tune in later... blah blah"...

Anyone else heard this?

Asmuch as i dislike Gilberts personality...there is no denying his top notch coaching ability. This may be a smart move

Tell me you're joking.

Brad Gilbert and Serena Williams? Since when does she receive coaching from anyone but her parents? If it was on ESPN, I believe it's credibility, but this is some HUGE news if it's true.

Martina Navratilova
Steffi Graf

I like Brad. If this is true, I think they'd make a good match.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I think Brad could help her refocus, but there are also reports that she's returning to Macci's academy as well. Have to wait/see how this one pans out.

If this is true it is a very, very, very, very good thing. Serena needs direction right now and I know that if she gets healthy, gets in shape, and listens to BG she can do really well.

Me neither, which makes me curious, but if it was seen advertised as a story for sports center, perhaps it hasn't hit the web yet? I dunno.
