Font de Mora's next victim...

http://www.itusa-tennis.com/domi.html


Dominice "Domi" Ripoll - Professional Player


Born on December 12, 1989 in Kirchheimbolanden, Germany, Domi has experienced very admirable success as a Junior. After playing her first G-18 tournament in April, 2003 she never looked back and has reached the quarterfinals in every tournament she has played since this time. This right handed player currently possesses a career high ITF ranking of #21 (G18). She posses a career singles record of 71-41 and a doubles record of 39-26

Domi’s idols in the game of tennis include; Steffi Graf, Andy Roddick and Venus & Serena Williams. Her hobbies outside of tennis include music, movies and friends. Her favorite movie is Hannibal. This well-rounded girl cherishes the health and relationships of both family and is being the most important things in her life outside of tennis. Tennis Training: 7 years old began playing tennis at the best academy in Cordoba Continued to play competitively in Argentina at age 16 traveled with a group from Argentina to do Orange Bowl Age 14 ranked 14 in Cordoba and 48 in Argentina

Domi is preparing to further launch her professional career under the guidance of legendary coach, Rafael Font de Mora. Font de Mora had the vision and coaching methodology to catapult Meghann Shaughnessy (USA) to a career high WTA #11 Singles and #4 Doubles ranking, as well as Domi’s fellow compatriot, Anna-Lena Groenefeld to a career best WTA Singles ranking of #14 and Doubles ranking of #7 in the world.


Seems like he has concentrated on destroying German womens' Tennis

And he seems to have written this article himself ("legendary" )

thats my favrit Quote from the article

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I watched Dominice practicing with Rittner two years ago here in Leverkusen and she is really stunning but I doubt that it is the right decision to end like Shaughnessy or Grönefeld.

Or she's thinking..."Wow, you can make me a top 20 player, as long as I don't spit? "

with Font de Mora, Ana Lenna reached her top position!
without him she is dropping in results and ranking

i don't know exactly how he works and if it's the best way
but watching results it seems he is not that bad ...

+ Alto, + Fuerte, + Rápido

Her bad form didn't start with the split, it seemed to start after she had match points against Kuznetsova in Eastbourne.
