And about the antonio thing, it doesn't really make sense that Antonio is quitting because of Vika's temper - it's not like her temper is anything new! There must be a lot more to it than that (if the rumour is true)
When he commentates for Eurosport, van Grichen does nothing else but to complain about the emotional instability of female tennis players in general and Shrieky Vicky in particular.
Again, the bad temper problem might have been treated better with a good coach, maybe his inability to influence Vika tells us that they don't fit. Look at what Krajan did to Safina on-course antics, they basically don't exist anymore, maybe Vika need someone like Krajan.
Definitely not. She doesn't need somebody who is always negative. And I don't think that somebody like her could handle her temper.
I hope Vika doesn't change coach, she reached all of her succes to date with Antonio. He's a great coach. I think that there is something else going on than Vika's bad temper, just hope they make it through together!
You could say he was a big underachiever though. Is that in direct correlation with his temper? Maybe.
Probably yes, his temper did result in him underachieving, most truly great players control their tempers. Mcenroe was able to lose temper, get things out of his system, and then concentrate, Connors and some other players did the same, but most players lose their concentration when their temper goes. I don't think the temper helps Vika concentrate, I have seen her implode because of it. You can keep the passion and still control the temper, that's what Vika needs to do.
