Any news on a coach for Tati? Or is she still coachless and works on/off with Brad Gilbert whenever he has the time? Her results lately have been pretty crappy and she really needs some guidance. Allez Tati hire somebody already!:banana:

Apparently during the offseason she will start working with a coach from the FFT and stay with him for next season

Golovins results have been a bit pear shaped since she hurt her ankle. She's probably lost a little self confidence. I was really expecting a lot more from her, hopefully it's on the horizon. :)

As for Brad Gilbert, less said the better. Just look at what he did with Mary.

Yeah, Georges Goven (the Fed Cup coach who kept Tati on the bench last Sunday, BTW). And who helped Nat's game a little bit, but nothing dramatic. Like Amelie's Albatross (Low-eek Courteau) just another member of the FFT "old boys club". BTW, can anyone tell me, without searches, what LOSS as a player enshrines Goven in tennis history? ;)

First, I disagree about it being such good news for Tati. (Mareee Pierce was never coached by FFT bureaucrats, and she has 2 Slam titles, plus made 2 finals @ age 30).

The late, great Pancho Gonzalez :worship: holds the record as the oldest title winner in the Open Era (43 years, 9 months old when he won the '72 Des Moines Open). He beat then 24 y.o. Goven in the final. ;)

It's not Goven. And they're not bureaucrats they're just bad coaches those you cited but there are great ones too.

ae wowww
