I believe they are coming. But. i have met and seen Russian coaches in my sport, and they have a knowledge of fysiology, but of psykology, many of them are blank. With a philosophy of scaring children to perform better, you break down confidence instead of building on it. Obviously there is good coaches in all sports in Russia, but unfortunately there are lousy ones in numbers.
Of this tennis ladies, Sharapova and Safina has rarely been in the Russian system.
