What a collision of personalities this will be!

Loved Conchi though when she was playing, and i'm sure she'll be well-equipped in trying to temper the beast (somewhat).

Re: Nastya Rodionova has a new coach - Conchita Martinez!

Intersting pairing, I actually thought her joining with Nicole Pratt would be great for her but I guess with her results being rather lacklustre in singles recently she may have wanted a change. Truthfully though, I think she's just taken some gamble playing a lot of high tier events and she's simply come up against better players.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

Re: Nastya Rodionova has a new coach - Conchita Martinez!

Wow...didn't see that one coming!!!

Always thought Conchi would make a great coach, but never expected her to work with Nastya Rodionova...WOW!!

Don't quite know how well they will get on as people, but good on Nastya for taking the opportunity to work with Conchi.....she can learn a lot from her

She's not only going to work with Rodionova.

From Conchita's twitter:
I'm starting a job with tennis Australia helping some players like Rodionova and some others that are in the program, exciting!

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

She started off quite slowly last year though (and in 2009, IIRC) but I suppose it's quite difficult to play a schedule which will maintain your already high doubles ranking while trying to improve in singles.

I imagine Pratt will be still helping somewhere on the sidelines.

Must be difficult for these technically skilled veterans to coach these generic ballbashers.

Re: Nastya Rodionova has a new coach - Conchita Martinez!

Martinez was nothing short of disastrous for Shahar in '08.
For most players I'd wish the collaboration would work better for them, but in this case I dislike both the player and the coach, so I won't
I'd be very surprised if she'll do wonders with Australian players...

OMG, I wonder if Rodionova will start insisting on having her 'lucky ball' back, sounds like a whole new world of Nastya Wind-Ups is opening up!

Conchita had a temper on her own, she was not exactly all love on court.

But nice to see her back, she knows the game a lot and can bring a lot of purpose to Nastya´s game.

She was also in the Raymond/Stubbs support camp at Wimbledon last year. I was sitting in front of her in their first round match.
