Poles put a lot of pressure on their athletes.
Radwanska gave her motivation and took away the pressure.
It's easier when you can share the pressure

oh please.. yeah, we put soooooooooooooo much pressure on our athletes.. what would u say about andy murray, huh..? THIS is somebody under pressure. Domachowska - no way.
The problem is that her mom and ex-sponsor used to make decisions for her. Whenever she's had good results, they changed her coach w/out a reason ..
First there was Tomas Janda, who changed her game a lot - she played with more top spin, less risk and her mentality got better.. She reached a Sopot semifinal then.. After this tournament he received a text message "thank u for yr work, but that's it".. Nice, huh..? He said that he's 100% sure that Marta wouldn't have sent him such message and that it was her mom.. And her mom, confronted about it, admitted that she didn't like the fact that marta doesn't hit as hard as she used to.. Well, hell of a reason to fire someone, isn't it..?
Then there was a coach from the US, Iwona Kuczynska - this relationship ended in a really really bad manner when marta's mom accused her of being an alcoholic and taking drugs.. She realized that she's fired when she bought a newspaper in the morning..She wanted to clear her name in court, but there are no information on whether there is/was a trial or not..
And then there was the italian guy, Paolo Canova, who reportedly had an affair w/marta and her mom could not stand that and fired him.. After that incident Marta decides a little bit more herself.. But you know what..? This is just sick and I think that she is old enough and smart enough to finally realize that her mom knows NOTHING about tennis and that she should make such important decisions on her own.. That's why she's now coached by Pawel Ostrowski, who was her 1st coach and was also fired by her mom a long time ago..
