Re: Changing the coach

As recent as last week, she was still welcoming Ricardo Sanchez as her new coach on her homepage. I think the only thing that consistently changes is her next tournament, and there's no guarantee that will change. Although I do confess that I check it out (un)accidentally on occasion.

Re: Changing the coach

Kim Clijsters tweeted something before that intimated Sabine's taken on Sam Verslegers as part of her team also, who I think may have been Kim's fitness trainer/physio? Given Bine's made of glass, it can only be a good thing for her to have her own specific one!

Yes he was Kim's former physio. Left is Wim.





Of course remains to be seen if he's working permanently with Sabine or just in Wimbledon.

Re: Changing the coach

What an excellent job Wim Fissette and Sam Verslegers have done with Sabine

Her defence, fitness & movement have improved greatly, and she has shown a genuine balance between power & touch

She was very quick to play down the Serena victory, suggesting there was still 3 matches to win.
I think Fissette's influence & getting her brain into slam winning mode shouldn't be ignored here

Re: Changing the coach

I think I might have to send Wim Fissette a thank you letter,he's obviously played a big part in this incredible run, I just hope he's with Bine for a while

I donīt think he had anything to do with the fitness part of her game actually. She came out of the off-season in top shape. She worked her butt off, well not literally. It just didnīt show due to her usual illness/injury/mental problems. I think the biggest influence he probably had on her is the actual preparation for the specific opponents. She is still an irrational confidence player at this stage. There is no other place in the world she turns around these matches against Serena and Radwanska. At least for now. His challenge in the coming months will be to make her a player that can control her emotions, improve and utilize her skills, when things are not going so well. We all knew that she needed a coaching change and maybe she finally found the right person. I was skeptical after the Sanchez blow-up. Iīm just happy that she didnīt go back to her father as a full-time coach, but continued her search. Coaching daddies seem an outdated concept at the very top level.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.

Re: Changing the coach

Interesting about the ankle braces. I did wonder whether or not they maybe in some way impeded her footwork. I used to hate wearing shinguards when playing football, as I thought I had less control over the ball - wherever possible, I always tried to do without wearing them if I could get away with it as I was always more comfortable without them.

Maybe it was psychological - maybe not; that's my point. Maybe taking the ankle braces off at least for singles is giving Sabs more freedom of movement on the court & in her mind.

I know what you mean with the shin guards theyre such a hinderance,I hate having my socks up aswell so when I have to wear shinguards it absolutely ruins me so I'm guessing the ankle braces must hinder her at least a little

Re: Changing the coach

In the moment I have the feeling she takes one wrong decision after the other. She needs a bit stability in her team and not change it every half a year...

Itīs not hard to imagine that these coaches, who know what it takes to actually WIN at the highest level (Slams or #1) and their idea to bring Lisicki to that next level clashed with Lisickiīs personality, i.e. demand more mental toughness, hardwork and professionalism.

Re: Changing the coach

another stupid move.

we have to face it, she won't ever change a thing.

Two top coaches say she needs to play a little different and she fires them.
