Well, her agent Mark Gandler is basically a hockey specialist who knows little about tennis. So even though the cost (inc. travel expenses) of coach Sviotslav Mirza, who took her from the 40's to #13 last year was less than the $250K she got to "ride bareback" in GQ, Mark fired him. After all, her new boyfriend (the same one another poster reported either beat her or threatened to) said he was this great coach. He was gonna tour with her and probably live off her anyway, so Mark probably figured "why pay for what you can get for free, plus she spends a coupla weeks a year with Lansdorp, eh, it'll do" (plus leave more after expenses for him to get a cut of). So the result was quite predictable. And I sincerely hope Lansdorp tells Gandler: "Thanks, but no thanks, I'm much more associated with Sharky and don't need your client. Bye, Mark." (Hey Pierre, feel free to cut and paste this on your Myskina.com site).
