Dean Goldfine

Tati's new coach. ESPN interviewed him a bit during her semi-final in Stanford. He has worked with Andy Roddick ,Todd Martin, and Mary Joe Fernandez. I think it will be a great partnership

He talked about how she was playing in the match (a little unsure of what she wanted to do). Tati said they are working to together for atleast the summer hardcourt season and then see how it goes; it seems like its going pretty well though.

The interview was just the courtside reporter talking to Goldfine and then relaying what he said to the main announcers. Goldfine was talking about adjustments she needed to make as the Schnyder match was going on.

So her partnership with Tarik is not working out? Tati is dumping coach in less than a year. Now that's something . Hopefully, Goldfine can polish her forehand into a killer weapon .

That's good news for her. What do you think that she will improve with her new coach?
my expectations:
-To be more solid as a volley player
-Learn to not loose her concentration and to keep fighting when it's turn bad
other thing?

Tis, I think the concentration part will be something for sure. And its an added bonus to have agood coach now, because at Montreal and New Haven, on-court will be allowed.

I think they will add on added variety too

I think hiring Goldfine is good for Tati. He worked wonders for Andy's fitness and made him as fit as he ever was (and he's still keeping it up!) and that's very important for Golovin right now. He also worked Andy's all around abilities, which is another thing Golovin needs to polish. I don't think this will be a very long term deal (Dean is a great coach, but not one you would keep for years on end) but Tatiana should learn a great deal from him.

I wonder whats happening post Sand Diego first round loss. Hopefully a lot of hard work, although she still has doubles to compete in.

i sure hope they'll continue working together for an extended period of time; definitely until the end of this year. maybe with brad working with murray and the lta, tati will have to stick with a coach. in the past, it seemed that tati would talk with brad when she needed help but it's going to be a lot tougher to do that now.

and i agree with Naldo that goldfine can really help tati with her fitness. maybe improved fitness will help her in some of these matches.

I hope Dean really has a plan for Tati after the loss so something similar doesn't happen in LA. I definitely agree that she has to work on her fitness; I get the feeling she doesn't do much off-court training

They've split. Apparently, differing opinions. I hope she gets a new coach soon, because I feel better when she has one lol

Tati has to mature... she cannot switch coaches weekly (as if they were boyfriends) And looks like her entourage (aka mommy Golovin) isn't helping either, they should give her some type of advice instead of leaving all the decisions to Tati, she's still too young.
