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
