GREAT NEWS: New (old) coach for Tamira: Larri Passos!

"I´m very happy that Lari will coach me in the future again, we did a good work together. Lari had some offers from other players too, but i´m happy that he wants to coach again. I say Thank you to Richard Brooks, he helped me very much."



Now back to Top 30 as far as possible

Lari will work on her fitness for sure and hopefully on her serve too

She's never needed his help more than now. Thank God she's getting outside help again.

Please don't meet Tamira at Wimbledon again Elena.

Well, at the last meeting Tamira lost 2-6 0-6 so why are you afraid?

Re: GREAT NEWS: New (old) coach for Tamira: Larri Passos!

But that was Slumpzek, not Realzek. She lost to Bammer (?????) by that same scoreline a couple weeks later. Realzek was at Wimbledon.

Some questions:
What did Larri do that helped Tamira out so much before? When and why did he leave before?

I guess he´s a good motivator, maybe she´s more motivated now to train hard again.

According to an Austrian Newspaper Tamira´s father fired him.

Excellent news. Her serve was much better under Passos' direction than it has been this year. I hope he will focus on that aspect of her game.

Go Mimi!

Sounds promising. There are a lot of things she needs to work on starting with the serve of course.

I would say her fitness is way more important

I disagree. It's important, but Jill Craybas is in phenomenal shape and is far from an elite player. Fitness might be the difference between being top 10 and top 3, but having a good serve is the difference between being where she is now and being top 10.

Yeah, but she played well last season (except the end) without a great serve. She reached many balls and had a better footwork than this season. The difference? Many losses this year

Both things are very important. Due to her height, there is a limit to how great her serve can be. No reason why she can't be extra fit... Seems to me she has added some weight and is not reaching as many balls as she reached last year.

But beyond that I think she has a motivational problem + that loss to Jankovic has impacted her more than I thought it would. I guess it convinced Tamira herself that her serve sucks...
