Question Nadia's Changes to Her Entourage / Schedule: Good Decision or Backfire



Nadia is taking a rather unusual approach to 2006
Dumps her coach who took her to her first title
Taking another Russian player under her wing as travel companion
Moving back to Moscow from Amsterdam
Going to New Zealand really early
Playing in a Tier IV tournament
Meeting Peter Jackson
New sexed up picture on WTA tour
Not sure what it will all turn into

That picture has been her profile pic for a good 6 months.
I don't see anything wrong with what Petrova's doing.
She said that she has a boyfriend but she speaks better English than he does now.
She doesn't want to lose her Russian roots. The best way to keep them is to have a younger Russian player who hasn't learned the ways of the tour tag along.
This way the Russian players learns something and so does Nadia.
Her early preparation isn't an issue. You have to prepare early for the Australian Open.
There's really no offseason if you really want to have a go at it.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

This is over a month ago -

Petrova fired Schapp
due to lack of mental support
Petrova has given coach Glenn Schapp tremendous credit, but after she won her first tournament in Linz, she dumped the Dutchman, because they were arguing too much.

"He was great about giving me technical support, but I couldn't get enough mental support from him," Petrova told TP
"We were arguing too much and had quiet a few misunderstandings. I was under too much stress with him and couldn't relax. During the important moments he wasn't with me anymore and I found it impossible to explain what I needed because were always fighting. It's better this way. I'm not happy that I have to find a new coach, but that's the way it is."

After 12 years out of homeland (she was most recently living in Amsterdam), Petrova is moving to back to Moscow, where she hopes to improve her fading Russian.

"I'm embarrassed, especially with my boyfriend because I speak better English than I do Russian now," she said. "My sentence construction needs improvement and I miss living there."

Petrova's boyfriend owns two businesses in Russia and has been playing tennis for a year and can actually sustain a rally with her. "His mind is like a computer and he picks up everything very fast. He plays every day."

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I'm wondering is she's a lesbian, too. I mean, I don't travel with a guy unless there's hanky-panky going on.

If she wins anything big this year - it was worthwhile for me.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
