I still think this coaching team does absolutely nothing for her. Either they have the wrong game plan in mind for her, or she's not listening to them at all. Either way, something's terribly wrong. I mean, even last year when she came back she was keeping matches fairly close. And to me her game looks much, much worse than it did last summer, except maybe consistency in serving.
Read that she refused to speak to media afterwards; I hope that means she's angry enough to think about making some changes (even small ones), but I've almost given up hope. Hard to stay optimistic when she's made nothing but shitty decisions for almost a year and a half.
about the "game plan", there was not too many today. Sometimes she was hitting short, really wide cc shots from both sides. problem, this wasn't killer either, and didn't come to the net to finish or something.
don't know if she switched raquet or string, but all her shots looking weaker, slower than it was.
my theory is that she really has fear the injury comes back. And she thinks "krajan's gameplan" inflicted the injury. And even if Gaston says she should keep doing this again, she sees him as the devil's advocate. So she is trying to do things on her own, thats why she barely calls him on court, or talks him at trainings.
(maybe its a bit too colorful theory, but you get my point
I think she is bit stubborn, or defiant. (something like that helps to fight, to come back when there is no return). And i had the impression that she is the type who can't change easily, can't think "out of the box" sometimes. Plus add the fear of injuries and you get a big mess.
But blaming only coaches would be wrong. Anybody who saw her at least once knows that pushing and such doesn't works for her. I mean i can't believe that somebody would giving her such bad advices, just can't.
