Serena is doing her off season training with Richard

I wonder if Serena is taking a break from Patrick! I thought last year she did her off training with Patrick.

Patrick is probably taking a break from Serena. He deserves a holiday.

I don't think so. She left Europe and returned to Floriday to train with her dad prior to the 2013 summer hardcourt season, after Bastaad. Besides I'm sure Sascha is there training with her as well (his influence is often times underrated). People forget that she's won 5 Aussie with Richard doing her offseason training .

When I read about Serena changing her training routine from a year ago, when she had so much success, it makes me a little concerned.

I wouldn't be too concerned tbh. Patrick is there for strategy and is a calming influence, but it's not like her game made massive leap last season, she just started to use more of it more frequently and added more top spin to her forehand. Besides with daddy she had 13 slams. Including 5 Aussies. After a poor Wimbledon this season where she was spinning her forehand and playing clay tennis on grass, she took "a break" and went back to Florida to train with Richard to prepare for the US Open series. She'll link up with Patrick in the Aussie and train with him throughout the clay season (the reason why she linked up with him) the rest of the European season, she'll probably return to Florida again before the US Open.

Plus Richard never flys down to Australia

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

Re: Serena is doing her off season training with Richard

Patrick's biggest influence on Serena is on her clay game, which also helps with the slower hard courts as well. Richard should hold the reins for AO and Wimbledon, but you must admit he really doesn't have much success with Serena when it comes to FO.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Re: Serena is doing her off season training with Richard

Good! This means she will be focused on winning the AO. Hopes she remains healthy because I think that is the only thing that will keep her from winning. I think it would be great to watch a final with her and Vika.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK
