Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 6
"She can hire the best coach on the planet, but if that all consuming desire to be as good as she can possibly be is no longer there it won't work."
The first question that needs to be answered is, "How much does SHE - Caroline Wozniacki REALLY want it." She can hire the best coach on the planet, but if that all consuming desire to be as good as she can possibly be is no longer there it won't work. Rory, well, imagine that he was the boyfriend of someone like Sharapova. And give Sharapova even ten times the money she already has. It would have zero impact on her career as a tennis player, because she loves to compete. Loves the get the best out of herself at any cost. Caroline used to be like that. She needs to get it back. That above all else is the top priority as far as I am concerned.
Besides skills, that is exactly what a coach needs to instill in her. If she doesn't want it, then walk away. It is a part of normal development for children to wean themselves away from their parents to become adults. Oftentimes, what facilitates that is having another adult male in a supportive, guiding, and protective role. If all has worked right as she has grown up, then she will always know she can come back to her father for emotional support and protection. But he doesn't need to be there night and day, everyday.
