It's now official: Urpi and Conchita are the new Coaches of Shahar Peer

After three weeks of intensive training in Barcelona, It is now official: Gabriel Urpi and Conchita Martinez are the new coaches of Shahar Peer. Urpy, will continue to work with Flavia and their schedule will be almost the same. Conchita will be with Shahar around 20 weeks, especially in the big tournaments and in the tournaments that Urpy will not be able to be with her. Conchita will fly with Shahar to the Australian Open alongside Gabriel.

Urpi is the coach of Flavia Penneta. Do you see her moonball? nope.
He is the head coach of Shahar so I think he has a say as much as Conchita about Shahar game and more.

Its a different style of play this days, and I'm sure they have better tactics for Shahar than 'to moonball'. In fact, I believe if Conchita was training this days as a junior players, her game would be completely different.

So, stop scaring me. Thanks.
Looking forward to great results Shahar

Re: It's now official: Urpi and Conchita are the new Coaches of Shahar Peer

I like it
Urpi seems to be a good coach, I wasn't happy at first when I heard he'd be working with Shahar, cause I didn't want him to stop working with Flavia. This sounds really good though, I like Shahar a lot as well, and I think Urpi can really help her.
Plus I like it that Shahar and Flavia will play a lot of the same tournaments. I guess they'll train together a lot too, I think they can be good sparring partners for each other

You have not been reading the top post obviously. It says clearly he will continue to work with Flavia.

On topic: It's a good development. Shahar is a player who is willing to work hard and with the right coaching she can get far. She is still young, so progress is definitely possible. I guess the haters will always consider Conchita as just a moonballer. She was much more than that though.

I have a great feeling about this.
Seems like a great team, and I like the fact that Shahar and Flavia will train a lot together.
Hopefully they will also play doubles together

James and Julien I guess it's a lost cause that in here, however I do think that 98% of the haters weren't even born when Conchita started winning tournaments (although they might be teenagers when Conchita continue winning ; it's easy to call her a moon baller (I've seen her play live and on tv thousands of times and still can't understand why) and not paying attention to her spins, change of pace, angles, slice backhand and master forehand (the best in the 90's just a bit behind Graf's).
I said before, Shahar has the fighting spirit that could be perfectly complemented by Conchi's advices, so it can't be bad for her.
