Mauresmo Influence On Azarenka: Showing Already Or Not Until Wimby?

As we all know, Amelie has joined Azarenka team and been working with her .

Has anyone noticed her influence on Vika game yet?


I personally think if any change, it will be noticeable during the grass season.
Given Amelie's past performance, that is the surface I think she will be more helpful to Azarenka

I really don't see what she's hoping to get from Amelie. We'll see I guess.

If Vika approached Amelie, she must have thought Amelie can add something to her game

Hopefully Amelie wasn't behind that fug-ugly change in service motion. Makes her look even more robotic and mechanical than she already was

If you're going to disagree with all of the responses then why did you open the thread?

If those DFs are any indication, sadly yes the influence is showing.

The goal of the thread, any thread, is NOT to look for agreement, it is to engage people.

I do think my response to your comments was unreasonable

When in Wimbledon, if Vika starts doing chip-and-charge on Serena big serve ( that she can read), then I know Amelie had made inroads in convincing her to give a different look to Serena.

if she wilts under pressure and bows out early at RG then we can surely make such statements.

Well the influence would be in Azarenka's netplay. She had a surface fast enough to show those skills but they were MIA in Madrid from what I saw. Chances are Wimbledon has been slowed down even more, so maybe Eastbourne?

She got a beatdown from Serena, it's definitely showing.
