Cool Everybody Rainer Hoffman Touches Turns To Gold-He Has 3 Charges In San Diego QF !!!

maybe I missed something while I was away but first I see the news that Rainer says he is the coach of Anna Chakvetadze, only to have Anna rebuff him and say that he is not her coach

then during the Chakvetadze v Mirza match, the ESPN commentators say that Rainer is also the coach of Sania

then to add more spice in this, Patty chimes in and says she is not taking sides between Chakvetadze and Rainer but then she gets her ass handed to her by Mirza in Stanford

is Rainer such a good coach that all the rising young players want him to help them with their fundamentals? or is there something else behind this?

what's next? Rainer going to coach Conchita in her comeback?

so can someone shed more light on this? JR?

And he has a crush on Mary, but don't tell Patty, please.

Swiss champs.

Re: Why Is Rainer Hoffman Suddenly Coaching Almost Every Player On WTA ???

Well lets put it like this, do you know anyone that doesn't like orange juice??? Exactly!

I was practicing with Venus in Florida, and she was just killing me. I'm kind of glad she didn't make it, for my sake (laughter). You can't sleep on her because she's playing unbelievable. I got to take my chance now while she's out because when she's coming back, she's really playing like she's playing with no fear and she's practicing really hard. Yeah, she's playing unbelievable. > Serena Williams AO '07

Mary Pierce wants him to coach her too when she comes back. She's been drinking a lot of orange juice to heal.

Patty's on her way out and Rainer needs cash.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

It seems that he's looking to trade in his Peppermint Patsy for a "newer model". Someone who can win a few Slams and other big events. I predicted a few years ago that he would when the Cuckoo Clock started her eventual decline.

Whether they'll stay married, who knows. My guess is he'll go for his new prize's money first, and if he hooks up with her romantically that'll be a bonus.

I guess there are some enablers here (who ignored his past even though this was Perfectly Predictable unless his Present Puppet fizzled) owe me an apology, not that I expect any.

Dunno, though the Rooskies might have his legs broken if things went downhill for Chaky (ala the way Rafi fucked up ALG, or the Bikic Bastards did to both K-lina and Jeca). But good for Anna that she got out of the situation soon enough.
