This girl, perhaps the most beautiful in the world, has SO MUCH talent but she does not have world class instruction so she needs a "tennis genius" like Fed to help analyze and coach her game. I actually think Roger could do so much for women's tennis by opening up some sort of academy of his own like Sissy Boy Ferrero has. I was reading that he follows the women's tour and has since the days that Martina Hingis was playing and obviously his girlfriend, Mirka, is a former player. It is time for Federer to give something back to tennis and in order to make the sport stronger and more popular which he is obviously very passionate about, he needs to start coaching the WTA players through his own academy, I would name it Club Fed. And his first project should be Maria K. :bounce:

Or he could open a mobile fish and chip van.

SO MUCH talentCould you translate that into physical terms? Has she a superior serve, or great power or great mastery of spins or a perfect dropshot? Does she hit angles nobody else can?

What do you mean, exactly? I'm not going to disagree with you. I've only seen her play twice. More like I wanna know what to look for next time.

When I saw Maria play at Birmingham 2004 (against Roberta Vinci), I was captivated by her all-court skills as she took a 3-0 lead. Sadly she then went off the boil, and lost that match 6-4 6-3.

If Maria played like she did in those three games all the time, I would induct her into my eternal fanship. I went to Birmingham 2005 hoping to be captivated by her tennis in the same way again, but she couldn't repeat her magic on me, and looked weak in losing 6-2 6-3 to Jamea Jackson (after a 6-3 6-2 win over the equally pretty but much less talented Yuliana Fedak).

The influence of Maria Sharapova on Maria Kirilenko is evident in Little Maria's serve, the way she goes for the lines with her groundstrokes, and the roaring grunts, the "c'mon"s and the fist-pumps. But Little Maria has much less zip on her serve and groundstrokes than Big Maria, relying instead on an all-court game which includes good volleys and great returns of serve.

If Big Maria can't bring out the best of Little Maria's talent, what hope has Roger Federer of doing so?

Honestly Federer has to take charge of his own carreer than wasting his time coaching somebody at this point, he still has a long carreer to take care of.
