What Should ALG do?

Clearly she needs to do something. Her coach is doing a terrible job. When you aren't winning matches, entering more and more tournaments isn't the way to go about getting your confidence back.

I think she should take a short break and work hard during that time, then return when she feels ready (eg. 2 weeks).

What is her schedule anyways?

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Obviously she should improve her serve and forehand,to make them more stable.

A coach can teach a player to have patience but only when the player has the fitness to believe they can do it themselves.
ALG doesn't have that belief or fitness.
She plays a reckless game and she is acknowledging that by playing a schedule that shows not much belief in her gamestyle.
She needs more patience but that will only happen when she believes she's fit enough to do it. I don't think she's fit enough and neither does she.
I don't see a problem with playing doubles and getting a better feel at net until that belief comes in singles (since she loses pretty early in tournis these days).

"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.

She needs to practise her forehand and serve.
These disadvantages may become smaller on clay courts,but never on North America.
Especially her 2nd serve,she needs to add more spin on her second serve and try to add more speed.

This whole scenario sounds like a joke, but Rafael could seriously be damaging her career and personal life.
