She said it in post match interview, she wants to practice at home:

http://www.marca.com/edicion/marca/tenis/copafederacion/es/desarrollo/1164631.html

"Svetlana confirmó que abandonará Barcelona y regresará a su país para darle un giro a su entrenamiento: "Extrañaba mucho Rusia y he decido terminar, en buenos términos, con mi técnico Emilio Sánchez y Stéfano Ortega de la Academia Casal-Sánchez".

"Es triste cuando una relación tan larga se acaba pero regresaré a Moscú porque mi país me da una energía muy grande, y haré viajes a San Petersburgo donde mi padre tiene pistas muy buenas, pero en la capital hay más posibilidades y se puede viajar mejor a los torneos", finalizó la número siete de la clasificación mundial.

Kuznetsova además confirmó que su nueva entrenadora será Olga Morozva y que "no se acaba el mundo por no haber ganado un título este año".

Morozova led Dementieva to 2 GS final and number 4 in the ranking in 2004

I also thought they were a good team, but I don't think he inspired Svetlana at least lately. Fresh thinking may help and motivate Sveta

Ortega led her to #2 with two slam finals. :shrug:

Morozova will get Sveta's head together, I'm sure. (Sadly. :sad: )

I expect that Sveta will have better results from now on!
Olga is a great coach IMO...
I wish she still worked with LenaD :(

Morozova seems like a great coach.

Shame some other players didn't realise it. Not naming any names, of course.

Sveta confirmed that she would leave behind Barcelona to return to her home country to try to change up her training: "I missed Russia very much and I decided to stop working (no hard feelings, they still get along) with my coach Emilio Sanchez and Stefano Ortega of the Academia Casal-Sanchez." (inst it Sanchez-Casal???)

"It's sad when a relationship that lasted this long ends, but I will return to Moscow, because my country gives me a lot of enegery and I will also travel to San Petersburg where my father has got very good courts, but in the capital city there are more possibilities and one can travel better to the tournaments", concluded world nr. 7 of the world rankings.

Kuzzy also confirmed that her new coach will be Olga Morozva and that the world would not end just because she hasn't won a title yet this year.

I'm glad Sveta is reunited with her family again. I've heard she did not want to speak to her parents two-three years ago.

I dont think this is very smart decission. I know that Sankt Petersburg have worlds best facilities for training at ICE OUTDOORS surface (especialy between october and march), but fact is that WTA still dont have any tournament at that surface.

Seriously, i think Sveta best chance to reach next major is Roland Garros red clay, and Barcelona seems like perfect place for preparation in that direction. But Sveta obviously have some personal reason for this decission, so maybe this will works with Morozova.

hmm. I hope this works for Sveta. Something needed to be changed with the poor results she's been having.

That's a relief. I was getting worried about that.;)

Quite a shock, they have been a team for a while. Morozova is no slacker though, she knows her tennis.

Morozova made an elite player out of Dementieva..

We didn't have the best year in 2008.. 13 titles so far, 1 Slam, Olympic sweep, Fed Cup.. Sure, any other country would die for that.. But we had a better year in 2004.
Yet, 2009 already looks VERY promising.. Maria will be healthy and at her best. Sveta will be back in Slam and #1 hunt - with Olga's help odds of that are just awesome.. Dementieva and Safina are striving and improving greatly.. Chakvetadze will surely get over her sophomore slump, and Vera Zvonareva is Top 10 and rising .. New faces are also on the horizon.. We'll have an awesome year in 2009, no doubt. I think at least a repeat of 2004 is on cards..

The Stefano Ortega partnership was obviously a very successful and Ortega is a proven quality coach. But like Mauresmo's situation with Loic Courteau sometimes long standing player/coach relationship's do go stale after a few years through no fault of either party. And if Svetlana is also feeling homesick then working with Olga Morozva who is also a proven coach makes a lot of sense.

Morozova made an elite player out of Dementieva..

A better way to phrase it would be that Dementieva always had the tools at her disposal to be an elite player, but hadn't proved herself yet after a breakout season in 2000.

Kuznetsova's already been an elite player with a grand slam and #2 ranking with two other slam finals and nine titles overall. Dementieva was a very incomplete puzzle, to say the least, that hadn't accomplished much beyond her silver medal and slam semifinal, both in 2000. Kuznetsova still is to some degree, but quite a bit of her talent has been flourished, if not all of it.

Morozova will help her piece her talent together like she was able to do with Dementieva. That said, Kuznetsova is vastly more talented than Dementieva (who, actually, said she felt Dementieva could be the best Russian player back in 2003), so maybe it'll be tougher for her this time. :lol: If Kuznetsova's smart, she'll keep her awhile.

Great things could be on the horizon for Sveta. The aid of a new coach helped Safina beyond belief. Wouldn't be surprised if it happened here too.

Exactly. The fact that Kuznetsova's gone as far as she has with such a shaky belief and mentality is notable; if Morozova can shore that up, next season could be quite interesting.

I agree. She absolutely needed a change, hopefully, this change will help her fufill her potential. I do think most of her problem is mental and her movement. No more splits! Good luck Sveta.

I've red an article in one Russian newspaper (about two year ago) that Sveta's parents were against her moving to Spain. Newspaper said that Sveta was upset at parents and did not talk to them for a while.

Murray trains there, too. So... I've been there, it seems like an awesome place and it lacks nothing I think.

But, yeah ya I dont know what Shamil means with destroying Svetas game, I mean those two worked well together. Imo, it was just time for a change.

I agree I liked Ortega as a coach and thought they worked well together its just that now a change is probably a good thing considering her lack of form.I really hope that Morozova will help her next year.I don't want her ranking to keep dropping like it is this year :sad:

Sveta s chances are at RG and USA oPEN...for some reason I think her losses are due to her conditioning,she plays well first set in the second she is huffing puffing and sweating profusely...then its down hill from there...conditioning:p

I think this will be great for Sveta. IMO, she is the player who SHOULD have followed Henin's steps and become the next No. 1. I really think she has the game for that. Hope her new coach can solve her mental problems...
