Should Henin change her coach?

If yes, which tennis coach would benefit her the most as she pursues a Wimbledon crown in her second career?

a. Melanie Molitor
b. Martina Navratilova
c. Billie Jean King
d. Richard / Oracene Williams
e. Like Federer, she's better off without a coach

Michael Joyce of course.

The heights he's brought Maria to these past few years are just one of a kind

Re: Should Henin change her coach?

Obviously E wouldn't be a choice....she needs someone to give her guidance during matches.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

she needs Yuri so he can add to her repertoire of coaching hand signals

Re: Should Henin change her coach?

@ Richard and Oracene Williams. Oooo thats funny. Ummm...Justine will never part from Carlos. They may bring on someone else to the team, but he will always be her main coach. Its been said that he is like a surrogate father for her. It is still very creepy though how often she looks up to him during her matches. Its creepy and kind of sad in a way. Its like she is constantly looking for approval or support. Poor Justine.

Everyone has someone to look to for support. For most of us, it's our family. Justine had a difficult childhood so Carlos is a fatherly figure to her. What's creepy and sad with that? You are patronising at best.

So long...

I always thought their relationship was exceptionally creepy bordering on incestuous had they been father and daughter

Re: Should Henin change her coach?

Carlos just seems scary to me, if Justine tries to part with him, he'd probably murder her...just saying

There's nothing funny about making a statement like that. What evidence is your 'thought' based on? Doesn't Sharapova look up to Yuri all the time when she plays? Is that incestuous?

So long...

Re: Should Henin change her coach?

Yeah I think that's a bit much, really come on now.
He's just a fantastic mentor to her, she is dependent on him for confidence yes but considering all the crap that went on in her childhood you can understand.

Re: Should Henin change her coach?

I'm a Justine fan and I hate Carlos He is very creepy, I agree. Especially his hand signals.

I would love to see Justine and Serena meeting in a Wimbledon final, and when Serena goes to serve she sees Navratilova in the player's box giving Justine hand signals
