Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

I also noticed that Biljana Vesilinovic is back as Kata's coach, after their ugly breakup in 2010 (was it?). Anyone know how that came about?

I think she's Petrova's coach. And was the breakup really ugly? I always thought it was because she got injured and couldn't play for a long time?

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

I looked it up, it was in July 2009. What I remember is that Biljana could not afford to wait any longer, while Kata was struggling with injuries.

Thanks, I guess he's referring to this from Kata: "There were three hurdles for me in those 10 months - the first two were the injuries and the third was I lost my coach after Wimbledon. She had different ambitions - she picked to travel with another team on Tour. We had many good years but in this whole situation I realized who really cares for me and who always will. The ones who stuck by me are the true friends." link The article is from August 2009, any idea which player's team she's referring to? Biljana only started working with Lucie Safarova in late 2010.

Understandable from both sides I suppose (that Biljana couldn't afford to wait and that Kata might be a little upset about it), and looks like they're alright now anyway.

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

Biljana went to work on Mauresmo's team straight after. It really felt like a betrayal to Kata at the time, and I think it really knocked her confidence on her comeback to singles. It was the exact wrong time to leave a player she'd been with so long, just when she was at her lowest ebb. Biljana is working with Kata again, as well as Petrova.

Hello All btw, I've been lurking in here many years, mostly because I didn't have proper internet for a long time, so I didn't see the point in posting, if I couldn't keep up with a conversation. But I'm a HUGE Kata fan!

Re: Katarina Srebotnik!

I was in Eastbourne for the whole week and saw all Kata & Nadja's matches. What a great week they had! The conditions in their semi and especially in the final were really tough. The wind was just horrible! And the start of the final was delayed because of some rain. But in the end Kata & Nadja handled the conditions amazingly well and seemed to have a great attitude from start to finish. I've seen Kata play in various tournaments I've visited, but this was actually the first time I saw her win a tournament which was just great.

Srebotnik Garcia
Petkovic Mladenovic Stosur Raymond Muguruza Hercog
Safarova Mattek-Sands Shvedova Dellacqua

Amélie Mauresmo

Doubles = 2 x the fun

I saw the livestream. Great that you were one of those die-hard fans. It was a ridiculous match, of course, but Kata & Nadja showed a lot more tenacity than their opponents, who looked like they wanted to get out of there.

I was watching the final on the computer in the comfort of my home and sending warm thoughts to the people still in the stands, not the most pleasant conditions to sit and watch (nor play..!).
