Who Else Feels That Maria Should Dump Michael Joyce For Someone Like Brad Gilbert?

i'm a die hard maria fan, but even i have to admit the present combo is broken. whatever the true nature of maria's injury, it is ultimately in joyce's job description to get her big wins, and he's not getting it done. on the flip side, i would love to find out what a no-nonsense (there's no way maria can pull any diva crap with him) guy like gilbert could bring to the table; after all, he worked wonders for agassi and roddick.

i don't know, i just think a coaching change is needed, and gilbert could be the right guy. would love to get your thoughts .

I don't even think Joyce is coach material. After all he was just her hitting partner when her father was her coach. Yeah she needs to dump him.

Richard Williams and Oracene Price will remarry before Brad Gilbert ever coaches a female player. That's what I think about it.

Gilbert has already coached Mary Pierce in 1996(?) or around there. You are wrong.

Brad Gilbert is dumb. Maria should refuse this.

If you are so sure, why the question mark? Besides, Gilbert was with Andre Agassi from 1994-2002. Try again, please.

Re: Who Else Feels That Maria Should Dump Michael Joyce For Someone Like Brad Gilbert

I like Brad Gilbert. He answers my questions on twitter. I asked him about Lansdorp and strings, and other stuff.

I think Maria's best surface is hardcourt, and I want to see her game this summer.
I thought her groundstrokes were not consistent against Kirilenko and Jie, but that's only 2 matches. If she is comfortable with Joyce, thats very important also.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Who Else Feels That Maria Should Dump Michael Joyce For Someone Like Brad Gilbert

Maria should definitely get some other help.

I don't think Gilbert's the answer. I think Cahill is probably a better fit. He seems to know more about the "X and O's" of the game and seems to have a temperament better suited to coaching the Women's game.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

the problem is, she seems to be TOO comfortable with him. i think she needs to be challenged again. gilbert's hardline attitude, imo, makes him the right guy for that job.

Re: Who Else Feels That Maria Should Dump Michael Joyce For Someone Like Brad Gilbert

I'm sooooooo on board!! It's so f*cking time to look for someone else!
But since they've like brother/sister so she may never dumb him. However, If he cares for her he should peharps resign.

Re: Who Else Feels That Maria Should Dump Michael Joyce For Someone Like Brad Gilbert

go back to Joyce as the hitting partner and get another coach. Add someone else in. I doubt she'd be able to fully dump Michael.
