What did he do to become uncomfortable to Cernosek?
Thanks for your nice words
I meant have just one tennis coach at a time, not don't ever change him/her. Of course if you see things aren't working, you should get a new coach. Wozniacki and Sanchez didn't work out, because her father was still involved.
Djokovic has had the same coach and physio since 2007 and just changed the fitness coach and worked with a nutritionist (Cetojevic) for a year, who discovered his gluten-intolerance, which improved even more his fitness. I'm hot sure whether Slozil means him.
I wouldn't call Petra spoiled, for me she's still getting used to having to say the same thing over and over again. Agree she likes privacy and is uncomfortable with too much media attention. She looks radiant at off court events, because she's beautiful and has professional make-up done
I think Cernosek still thinks he can provide Petra everything she needs and she'll win more Slam titles AND still satisfy his wishes. If his appointments don't work out anymore, he will search for outside help, he might be self-serving, but not insane. I guess Petra might feel somehow indebted to him (and have an unbreakable contract) for helping her into Prostejov initially and is reluctant to look for a new manager. Also I'm not sure any manager in the world would promise you that you won't have to attend any off court activities. It doesn't matter whether it's in the Czech republic or abroad, there's time you have to dedicate to your sponsors. Look at Wozniacki - at some point she was everywhere and she recently remarked it got too much.
Side note: Just out of curiosity, what is Safarova's arrangement, how come Cernosek didn't sign her?
Well at this point, Cernosek is acting like Petra's father.
With Wozniaki, it appears her father has reached the limits of coaching her, but doesn't want to let go. In Cernosek's case, I don't think he wants to let go either. Piotr goes around the world for Caro's people, and gives them no real chance. Cernosek, can't even be bothered to pretend to look/go around the world-- like Caro's father does, and gives no one a chance outside his network.
Well, I would love to see Petra consult with a fitness coach or nutriitonist--outside of his Network, like Djokovic did.
Yes, I think Slozil meant contact Djokovic's coach, so Petra could find out about his nutritional, physio and medical team. Maybe he meant coaching tips to?
I don't know.
When I called Petra radiant, I was including her personality, enthusiasm and overall glow. Even during press conferences and interviews, Petra can be very fun, magnetic, self assured and alluring (in her own way).
Some of us have speculated, the reason why Cersoenek hasn't gone outside of his network (though it would make sense): Because he's afraid of losing Petra to someone else. Apparently, he lost Martina Hingis, after working with her. I don't know. He could also be overtly nationalistic and stubborn as well. But his decisions (or lack of them) can certainly hinder Petra in the future, especially when Cernosek's choices appear limited to his own network.
Not every manager is a Tennis facility owner, Tournament Promoter, Involved in Tourism and politics--in general or in your home country. There are many managers that just manage. And unless your with a big time Agency--like CAA or IMG, William Morris, etc., your responsibilities should be limited. Petra has enough responsibility from the WTA and her sponsors. However, other responsibilities shouldn't come because of her managers own self serving interest. Petra's did her part already. Prostojev and Cernosek's Sports Grp, will forever be known for producing Petra Kvitova. One of the problems is, he still wants Petra to play in his events, when she should practice, rest or heal. That's bad!
Wozniaki, was EVERY WHERE, because both she and her father tried to sign up every $$ deal that she could. But at least she got paid for it. I'm not sure Petra gets much $$ (if anything) playing Cernosek's tournaments, outside of paying a debt or responsibility to him.
No contract of their type is unbreakable. This was discussed above. As I said, athletes/entertainers break up with their managers all the time. Timey Winey, gave an example with F1 Driver--Lewis Hamilton as well. It's very hard for an intermediary to win big over a talent (content) provider. And lengthy contracts are usually not signed by the talent or enforced against them--when they do by the courts (cause the intermediaries are not essential for the delivery of the product).
To my knowledge, Safarova and Berdych are part of Cernosek's management and are Prostojev members as well.
No one knows what happened to Ivanko. And some of us think he was re-assigned or let go Cernosek.
Ironically, last year--Ivanko claimed he was such a hot commodity, that Piotr (Caro's father) was hot and heavy for him. Now, I think he's supposed to be working with the Prostojev boys. But I don't know.
And we're always NICE here (at least most of the time).
