Confidence In Lindsays New Coach?
I know it is a fairly new season and Lindsay has only played a few tournaments so far but she has not had great results up to this point.Do you think this has alot to do with getting a new coach and adjusting to him and trying new and different strategies on the court. I had mixed feelings when she let Adam Peterson go because she was winning many Tier I and Tier II titles the last few years and got the #1 ranking but on the flip side,Lindsay didnt reach her ultimate goal,which was winning another major.Although she was in the finals,of The Australian Open in 2005 and Wimbledon as well and came within a point of winning Wimbledon. I thought a new coach might be good for her and this new coach might help her with her confidence and attitude on the court,which has hurt her in the past.So far,maybe I cant see the change in the construction of points,from when Lindsay had Adam to having David now but the strategy seems the same,attack first and paint the lines with bullets,from both wings.Also,I dont see a change in Lindsays attitude and confidence.In todays match with Martina, Lindsay came back from a set down and cruised in the second set and had the momentum,going into the third set but she seemed to unravel,as a call,at a crucial moment, went against her in the fourth game of the third set and made. In addition, Lindsay made so many unforced errors,in crucial situations.She didnt seem very positive out there in the third set and mentally lost it with that call.Can any coach help Lindsay with this problem? She has done so well at this tournament over the years, both reaching and winning the finals.It is disappointing that Lindsay lost in the fourth round,although Martina is a higher quality opponent,than her ranking shows and that is only due to the fact that,Martina has not played in a few years.Finally,do you think the injury to Lindsays back had anything to do with the way she played today? Lindsays winding down, with her career and another coaching change, is highly unlikely but up to this point,in the season,do you think it was a good move for Lindsay to change coaches?
