Should Mary hire Brad Gilbert?

Roddick just fired Brad Gilbert as his coach. Maybe Mary should think about hiring Gilbert to help get her back to the top. Any thoughts?

It could be a good idea...hen can be a good motivation for Mary...but i do think that Mary needs a more anonymous trainer... a more discret one...

Mary Pierce (the only queen)
Venus Williams (the real athlet)
Anna Kournikova (the beauty)
Maria Sharapova (the precious)
Jelena Dokic (the tchiiii girl)
Mirjana Lucic (the rock)
Victoria Azarenka (the alien)
Daniela Hantuchova (the classy style)

No. Gilbert is sexist, and there are very few women I could see him coaching. Mary should hire me.

David... I don't think he will, , they should have work together few months ago and they didn't for some unknow reasons, why would he train her now?

Brad is a good choice but did he already train a woman?

Well...Brad is a good coach...but I don't really like his attitude...he's made some very annoying comments about Justine when she was no 1....saying that a guy ranked 1000 in the world can easily beat Justine...a sexist, really....

David is really the best choice, I think....I can't think why David isn't hooked on to the job yet....

I think Harold Solomon's a pretty good choice too...look what he's done with Capriati...

Anyway...yeah I agree Mary needs a coach more than ever NOW!!!!!!

...Mary Pierce...my queen...forever....


...Daniela Hantuchova...my little angel...


Nadia Petrova...
Lindsay Davenport...
Jennifer Capriati...

Monica Seles...
Amelie Mauresmo...

Well lets all see what happens.

I am sure that Mary will make the right choice for her. I just think in my opinion it is DAVID. But I think that for sure it has to be FULL TIME. I just think that it might take a little persusion to get David to go to full time, I think that that David has a family.

What about Steffi's old coach, I can't rememer his name, even though I met him at Wimbledon 1999.

Brad was actually Mary's coach for a while a few years ago...

je m'en rappelle mais c'était juste pour un remplacement, ce n'était pas tellement "officiel", enfin je crois
