Seems to me like Daniela has lost the "fun" in tennis. She doesn't appear to be enjoying it anymore. I think she may put a lot of pressure on herself. Once she made Top 10 she seemed to be more serious and not having as much fun on the court. I tend to agree with the others that the problem is within Dani and not Nigel. I think perhaps the stress and weight of staying in the Top 10 has made her push herself more.
Right now I think the best thing she could do would be to give herself a break, not worry about the points, and rest. I miss the old Dani and the easy smile she used to have all the time. I hope she'll regain that part of her personality and with that, perhaps her game will return as well.

No one does things exactly the way I want them to. No one ever has. It’s a problem they have!
