Re: *Vika Azarenka Cheering Thread* - Vikalume 4.
Sumyk isn't going to go, and I don't think he should go either. You can't just change the coach at the first sign of problems in years.
It's not like they aren't aware of her problems. Someone in her team, or maybe her herself initiated getting a new fitness team in the off season.
I have faith in Sumyk. Having seen interviews with him, he strikes me as a good coach.
First she has to get back into physical shape (at least 2012) before we can really judge whether her game has regressed. The inability to improve her serve and also her clay game (still no sliding ability) is a bit disappointing.
I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
