Re: The Live Scoring Thread
Geekking & I have been perhaps the most ardent supporters of Sabine changing her whole Team (Coach et al) in trying to get to where we all think she can get to - Top 10, deep into Slams, more WTA Tour Titles etc. At the moment, she is a long long way away from that; indeed this year, getting further away.
It is no good just being a Wimbledon/Grass Court 'specialist'. The season doesn't start & stop at Wimbledon.
But Sabine is in a comfort zone. It seems she is happy to stay there. To take the case of Laura Robson again, she saw that she needed to work on fitness, movement - two of the things Sabine needs to work on, in fact. So Robson hired the Coach that used to train Safina & has the reputation of being a hard taskmaster. We have seen the results since.
Another UK example, Andy Murray - hired Lendl - we have seen the results; he is now a GS Champion.
It frustrates the hell out of me that Sabine seems happy to plough on without seeing that changes are needed to take her game up a level...at the moment, we can all see it is going down several levels.
Sadly, Yonex photoshoots & fancy watches are not enough. If Sabine wants to become a model, then give up tennis. I assume she wants to carry on with her tennis career. Then take a long hard look at where you are going.
