Re: 2014 Western Europe adventure (Cheering Thread)
I see where you are coming from, but I get the impression that Sorana is one of the players who is cooling off very soon in her working relationship to coaches in general.
I'm actually as surprised as you are that she is still sticking to Ionita and I might talk complete crap now, but I think that she deep down knows that the majority of tennis coaches out there would demand much more discipline from her side than he does. He actually comes across as a 'softy' which I personally don't consider a bad thing, but the way Sorana was treating him in Marrakesh last year might indicate that their working relationship tends to be a bit one-sinded at times.
Here again, it's in Sorana's hands. A change of coaches might really bring some quick improvement, but he must have a good handling with Sorana or otherwise her inner 'Diva' might shoot him off faster than we think.
