Maria rumoured too have new coach Eric Van Harpen

Swiss news paper reports that Masha has a new coach in the shape of Eric Van Harpen.

Van Harpen coached Schnyder, and helped her to six titles. She aslo reached the top ten under his gudiance. However, there maybe a downside too this if true. Schnyder said that regardless of how well she played, or titles she won, he was never satisfied with her performance.

This news has still too be verified.

Re: Maria rumoured too have new coach Eric Van Harpen

Eric Van Harpen coached Anna Kournikova for awhile and Maria has a similar game and build to Anna. Hopefully Van Harpen can help Masha. She really needs a good professional coach.

Re: Maria rumoured too have new coach Eric Van Harpen

Thanks too lotti for the link

Translated from the German

"he 59-year-old Dutchman Eric van Harpen is responsible for about one year for Swiss tennis with a 70-percent mandate for the area of Top-class sport of the women. Principal reason for the contract change shows the only conditioned Abkömmlichkeit for longer training unities in Switzerland. Van Harpen pursues for many years successfully a tennis academy in Tiengen (De) and recently looks also after the Russian Maria Kirilenko."

Maybe we will see him with Maria at Wimbledon.

Re: Maria rumoured too have new coach Eric Van Harpen

Judging from what i`ve heard about Eric, he seems like a good coach and could be the one to give Makiri some much needed help to improve her game. Good move to get him in the camp.
