Re: On court coaching is crap

on-court coaching keeps giving "controversy". Thats the only thing what WTA wants.

Re: On court coaching is crap

I'm also interested to see how Nadia reacted to the comment. I'm sure she's heard him say many similar things before though, and she's not the classiest herself so I doubt much shock was shown.

Yuryevna,
Always

Agree. Tennis used to be THE sport where you had to think for yourself. And it makes a difference. Justine Henin's physical abilities were highly admirable, but her near complete refusal to play without consulting her coach is a major knock on her. Especially as she did so when it was illegal. OTOH< with on court coaching, I think Anna Kournikova would have been able to win some tournaments. She had a lot of physical ability.


NOTE: For the first half century or so of American football, the quarterback actually called the plays, not the coach, but that almost entirely disappeared 30-35 years ago. There's still one guy who does it.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

It still amazes me! The delicacy of tennis fans. From futbol to basketball, around the world, coaches and players say much worse everyday! Even in tennis the players and coaches do the same. I guess so long as people do not hear it they can pretend it is so shocking when they do.

Sports in general have become a fucking toilet all over the world. Forgive us "delicate" tennis fans for not wanting to flush our sport down the same craphole.

Re: On court coaching is crap

The WTA should fine him for that. If he's trying to make a joke, or take Nadia's mind off the pressure, find a better way, or stop mike-ing them altogether

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

Petrova is no saint whatsoever, had I been Huber I would had shut up and given her a taste of her own medicine 2 games later.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: On court coaching is crap

That is despicable. I am far from Stosur's biggest fan, but she seems like a nice girl and did NOT deserve to be trashed like that.

And Nadia laughing at him Just as I was starting to warm to her.
