I think she should not play Paris.
She has a coach she has never met before.
Take the week off. Get to know your coach. Spend time on the practice court.... talk about your game. Go over some videos.. you can even skip the next week, doing the same thing ... and resting... then start playing again. There is no rush going from a slam to a tournament the following week when you are making such a big changes on your team. You are now a top-10. Don't keep doing the junior things. Take time off between tournaments.
Completely agree with this, especially in regard to the following weeks which are packed and the fact that she has to reach the final here to add points to her ranking.
I hope she won't regret the decision to play her, but I can imagine her being over-eager to implement new tactics on her game and go right from theory into practise.
Fissette is the best thing Simona could have. I'm sure he would like to improve things to bring his ideas on the table, his plans and Simona needs to accept what he wants unlike Lisicki. I hope she is smart enough to accept that at this level you need to have a coach that is willing to help you become better and Fissette obviously aims for the top.
I don't know if Simona is smarter than Lisicki, but she is much more focused and hungry for success and even in the past she has gone to great length to get what she wanted. Which tennis player would shorten her breasts for a possibly successful tennis career?
Lisicki is completely different in that regard. She is a party girl who enjoys the media attention and still wants to 'have a live' next to the tennis courts, whereas tennis has to be your life if you really want to go far. I'm studying in Germany and her relationship with one of the biggest clowns of the TV business made her become a tabloid queen (although it might be the reason why the AO newspaper coverage in Germany was the biggest since what feels like forever).
Simona as well got noticed, but of course her breast reduction was a huge topic there.
