It shouldn't be in the off topic thread either. That is not a thread to talk about Ana. Maybe in the articles thread.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

I think you are missing the point of my post completely. Of course if she is starting now she needs to start slow. She will have to do the weight training and build muscle if she is to ever recover power in her shots though. And the power in her shots are necessary for a real success of her game, to be able to beat more than scrubs. I'm not sure she will do it though... she hasn't been doing it for how long? If she was working her strength, it wasn't in an effective way, as she can't last in long matches, her shots are weak and lacking power and she has complained of lack of energy time and again.

And I'm sorry you don't like my posts.. can't do much about that. Maybe I am hard on Ana, but the decisions she has been making have been SO obviously dumb, it's no wonder it's going from failure to more failure. That was actually the only posible result from it. Hard to believe they actually took those decisions. I mostly write in total disbelief of what I see it's happening, of the choices being made, of the thought process being shown. And it's not all that much what she says, though it does represent much of what she does, and that is the point.
I know you're not saying that. I was just using an example

And the point I was trying to make that you missed was, if she's not doing it, then it's for a reason. Muscle isnt the only thing that gives you power Rafa has WAY more than Roger, but Roger consistanly produces more power than Rafa. It also has to do with technique and other variables. You can't just assume it was a terrible decision because we don't know what the factors behind it were. We sit behind our computers and judge. She's the one who has to put in the work and whos carreer is affected.

We are not tennis coaches, we are not physios, and we don't deal with Ana on a day to day basis. Therefore, we cannot judge what she does or doesn't need.

It's not just muscles and lifting weights

Of course there's nothing you can do about it. I'm just saying it would be a nicer place to post if you didn't come off so confrontational and stand off-ish

You guys are more than welcome to move the discussion. I, however, am done. Good night

Of course. And I'm not saying it isn't. But for the type of game Ana plays, some muscles are needed. Do you think Rafa without muscles would have the same success?

And if she was not doing strength training before it was for a reason.. another wrong decision to add to the long list of wrong decisions of the past 3 years. The training she has been doing has obviously been unnefective and counterproductive, as she has been getting injuries due to being weak, she hasn't been able to last for long matches, she has lost a LOT of power in her shots and so on.

And if we just can't write our opinions on Ana in this forum, then why a forum in the first place? I feel like I can write my opinion on anything here. I might not be with Ana 24/7, but I watch more of her matches than her own coach. It has been OBVIOUS that what she is doing or has been doing isn't working. If it was just simple stuff.. but it's obvious stuff. Things she has been doing that are bound to have only one possible effect: major fail. And yet she has been doing them anyway. I refuse to believe that was her only option, so it can only be a terrible decision. And this is about everything.
