Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Is she even that credentialled as a coach? All the success Casey had was pre-Pratt.
Jess will be even more in favour with TA with this move, though.


I hope Rogowska has a coach travelling with her or something.

Just before Wimbledon 2007 was when Pratt starting coaching Casey on a part time basis! She helped Casey qualify for her first grand slam!

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Great news about Pratty Her wealth of experience from playing on the WTA for years is probably going to be of some benefit for Jess & the rest of the young Aussie girls. Hopefully they can take advantage of that.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

I wonder where this leaves David Taylor? Wasn't he supposed to be the Head Women's Coach AND the Fed Cup Captain AND Samantha Stosur's personal coach?
Good decision to retire him from Head Women's Coach. That is simply too much on his plate.

Pratty will bring a real professionalism and great work ethic to the scene. Hopefully the girls take full advantage of all of her knowledge and experience

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

if his vanvoucer points from last year come off this week like i think they do...
he should shoot up well past his prevous career high of 184 (or something like that) to about 150..

should he amazingly win the title he should go up to around 126!!

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

He's had one hell of a nice draw but it's been a great week for him, hoping for a stream of the final.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

Im just watching some of his match against Mayer. Its such a bad standard. Even up a set and a break Carsten's body language is pretty average. Not that his opponents is much better.
Anyway good on him for taking advantage of such an opportunity!

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: General Aussie Tennis News

^^
Yeah Carsten's body language is pretty average I've noticed too, but he has a good serve especially when he kicks it. The commentators during that match said he needs to add more consistency in his game & for him to improve on his mobility. But really this final is somewhat of a breakthrough for him - don't know exactly how far it will take him.
