Crucial time for Maria?
There is no doubt that Maria's been having a depression these months, especially as she commented March was a horrible month for her. Although it seemed that she did well in the Roland Garros, reaching the semi-final however losing to Ivanovic with an humiliating result (just like the one in Australian Open), it clearly wasn't her best. I can hardly see her consistentsy this year. Once again she lost to Venus with a quite embarassing result 1-6,3-6. I doubt it should be a performance by a world no.2? It should have been closer. Although I'm a great fan of her, I don't wanna take the shoulder injury as an excuse to explain her defeat, even it might be true to a certain extent. I somehow think that she should change her coach right now. Of course, her father can still stay with her, but hopefully not being the coach? Michael should be changed as well. He's not a great ATP player indeed. A brand new chemistry must be created. Of course, an enormous investment of time should be made. I know she's very keen on defending her World No. 2 status, but clearly it shows that she's not really for doing so. Take Roddick, he's spent a year changing his techniques. I think Maria should do the same as well. Don't care about the rank at the moment, it doesn't matter whether being able to join the YEC or not. She should find the best for her.
