Interesting.

I guarantee you he won't be her coach after the US Open though. That would be way too long for Tati.

Mats is cool :bounce:

Jul 20th, 2007, 05:59 PM
At least she has a coach for now. And also we can judge how serious Tati is about her career. Mats is a legend. If she can dump him in less than two months then, we all know something is wrong with Tati.

Great news though! But please do not expect wonders yet, guys.

yukon145

so he won't be with her for Stanford and San Diego?

i also hope that this pairing lasts for a long time, Tati needs a full time coach, not just a trainer.

Jul 21st, 2007, 03:22 AM
very interesting. but it totally sounds like a temporary arrangement on both sides. mats has a lot of other jobs and i think he would rather coach rog rather than tats. has he coached a wta player before?

as for tati, guess this is the benefit of being close with the FFT. they can bring in a big name for a coach. hopefully tati will be motivated to learn from a grand slam champion.

Great job so far for Tati (62 10). The match is under her control, she manages to stay tough & focused on the crucial moments saving all the BPs for example. I am particularly glad that she will work with Mats, I hope it won't be a short relation, she has many things to learn from him.

yukon145
Jul 25th, 2007, 12:13 AM
you have to realize that when Tati lost to Bartoli, Tati was playing like shit.

she had just lost first round of the Aussie to Santangelo and seemed lost on court. she only started to play well a few weeks later at the Paris indoors tourny and i think Tati herself said she was suprised to do so well there (she made the semis and almost beat Amelie) because she had not been playing well in the earlier weeks.

so i wouldn't look too much into that one match.

She won 62 62. Routine victory with some difficulties to hold in the second set, she had to save BPs in two different games.
It seems that Fed Cup hasn't affected her too much. Good to know, I would love her to win her second title there.

Morigami or Mirza will be a real test now. A two sets win would be really welcome. Allez Tati !

If Tati gets beaten 3-6 0-6 all the time, someone's going to be someone's bitch :tape:.

That was just one worthless match. Look at some of the beatings Bartoli took earlier this year. She has been bagelled an astonishing 7 times this year for a player ranked 11th world. Not only that but she got a measly two games from Severine earlier in the year and Severine has been helpless this year.

So you can't take much from one match or even a string of matches. If your not in good form you will get crushed as Tati did against Bartoli and as Bartoli did a lot early in the year.

saw the match and the 2nd set was tougher than the 1st. in the 2nd, tati kept losing the early points of her service games and kutuzova seemed to get into the match but it still ended in a 6-2 set.

it was hard to tell her form from this match. but mirza will be a good test with the crowd against her too.

tati is also working with a new trainer. and tati and peng seemed to have a good time in doubles. they even walked off the court together chatting!

Before I start my usual rants. Articles time :cool:

#1.


No. 19 Tatiana Golovin of France crushed Viktoriya Kutuzova, of Ukraine 6-2, 6-2. Golovin, 19, was a semifinalist in last year's Bank of the West Classic.
Golovin has taken on a new coach, Mats Wilander, who won seven Grand Slam titles during his career.
"I'm just looking forward to it. I don't know what to expect and I don't know how it's going to work out," Golovin said.


#2

STANFORD, California (Reuters) - Tatiana Golovin and Shahar Peer led a trio of seeds into the second round of the Stanford Classic on Tuesday after the pair recorded straight sets victories in their opening encounters.
French sixth seed Golovin eased to a 6-2 6-2 win over Ukraine's Viktoriya Kutuzova while Israel's Peer, the fifth seed, got off to a slow start before recovering from a 4-0 opening set deficit to defeat France's Camille Pin 7-6 6-2.
They were joined in the last 16 by Austrian eighth seed Sybille Bammer, who raced to a 6-4 6-2 victory over Japan's Ai Sugiyama.
Golovin adopted a conservative approach against the Ukrainian prospect, playing on the back foot and waiting for her opponent to commit errors.
"When I saw her make so many errors, I decided to get ball back and force her into mistakes," Golovin told reporters.
"I served very well, got everything back and that frustrated her."
The 19-year-old Frenchwoman is playing in only her second tour event since injuring her right ankle in late April.
"Knock on wood. Hopefully it's a done deal," she said. :lol: (tati should pray harder)
"I still think about it a little, but when you get in a match you just have to forget about it. Now is the time I have start playing well again."
Next up for Golovin is India's Sania Mirza, who rallied from a set and a break down to overcome Japan's Akiko Morigami 4-6 7-5 7-6.


#3.

Sixth-seeded Tatiana Golovin and eighth-seeded Sybille Bammer were early first-round winners Tuesday.
Golovin, who won her first career WTA Tour title at Amelia Island earlier in the year, topped qualifier Viktoriya Kutuzova 6-2, 6-2. Bammer, who also won her first tour championship at Pattaya City, beat 29th-ranked Ai Sugiyama 6-4, 6-2.
"I had to try and get into a rhythm," Golovin said. "I knew I had to get the ball in and force her to make mistakes."
The 19th-ranked Golovin has been slowed by a right ankle injury since April. She returned to the court at Wimbledon, reaching the second round. Golovin will meet Mirza in the next round.
"I'll see how my ankle holds up," Golovin said. "I still think about it but hopefully it is a done deal."



#4.

STANFORD, California, July 24 (Reuters) - Tatiana Golovin is pleased the French Tennis Federation has hired Swedish Davis Cup captain Mats Wilander to coach her for the rest of the U.S. hardcourt summer.
Seven-times grand slam champion Wilander will begin coaching the 19-year-old Frenchwoman at the WTA Tour event in Los Angeles in two weeks' time and continue through to the Aug 27-Sept 9 U.S. Open.
Golovin, who defeated Ukraine's Victoriya Kutuzova 6-2 6-2 in the first round of the Stanford Classic on Tuesday, said she met with Wilander for lunch in Paris last week and the two hit it off.
"I'm looking forward to it," Golovin said. "I'm sure he's going to have a lot to teach me and talk to me about. Everything I'm going to go through, he's been through, so the experience will help.
"But there's not too many expectations because I don't know how it's going to work out. It's a test to see how we get along and to see if we are on the same page." (she's already making up an excuse to dump him lol)
The 19th-ranked Golovin had a good start to the season, winning her first career title at Amelia Island in April before re-injuring her right ankle, which forced her off the tour for two months.
Primarily a counterpuncher, Golovin is hoping that Wilander can teach her a few new tricks.
"He doesn't like the part of women's tennis where we hit as hard as we can and not really think out there," Golovin said. "He's going to make me think more, see the court better and play more like a guy, which could be better."

Harju.
Jul 25th, 2007, 03:53 PM
Regarding the match. Like I said in the other thread, you guys made a big deal out of the Fed Cup match. Tati has choked so many times and she always ends up fine. 7 aces is :worship: and any win at this point is a bonus.

guess both tati and marion need to work on their tennis. but after seeing her play on tuesday, i'm not surprised about the loss. tati was struggling to hold serve against a player in the #90s and mirza is a lot better than that. and today from the stats, tati could barely win a point when sania made a 1st serve.

not sure if i want her to win in doubles later tonight. if they win, they won't play before saturday. rather have tati go down early to san diego and start practicing.

here's something funny about the match that i found. didn't realize tati and sania are such good friends.


Mirza and Golovin were sitting on a couch together chatting in the players' lounge before the match began and took some ribbing for it from fellow players.

"Everyone's was making fun of us. Someone said, 'You should put you chairs together on court.' " :lol:

But the laughs were gone early as Sania stood in close on her returns and inched ahead after serving. On match point, she hit a Graf-like forehand crosscourt that took paint off the courtside tarp.

"She said to me, 'Can you hit it any harder?' " Mirza said with a laugh.

Golovin vs. Dulko – That’s Entertainment!

In one of the most entertaining matches on Monday’s Acura Classic schedule, 13th seeded Tatiana Golovin of France defeated Argentina’s Gisela Dulko, 6-1, 2-6, 6-2, in the final match of the evening on Stadium Court at the La Costa Resort and Spa.

In a first-round duel of young baseliners which thrilled the crowd, Golovin lost her serve in the opening game of the match.

Golovin would not only get the break back in the next game, but would lose only four more points in winning six games in a row to run away with the set in 21 minutes. She was so dominant that she won 15 of 16 points during the set.

Just when it looked like it would be an early night for tennis fans at the Acura Classic, Dulko regrouped and came back to win the second set as both players displayed some amazing shot making.

Dulko scored an early service break and opened up leads of 3-0 and 4-1. With a 5-2 lead, she evened the match at one set all when she broke Golovin’s serve at love.

In the third set, Golovin, hitting her service returns with accuracy, broke Dulko twice in the first two games and went on to take a 5-1 lead.

The Argentine extended the match by holding serve to stay in the match, but Golovin easily served it out in the next game to close out the match.

Bravo Tati & Dina, the first set scared me, they were about to lose it with pathetic stats on serve but it got better then with a happy end :).

Well at least its over 60% unlike in Fed Cup. ;)

Percentage is excellent but maybe she is just putting it in play knowing she can win rally without a fast serve speed.

Either way, when Tati has a high percentage of serves going in she plays well.

Tati loses the second set. Choked serving at 4-5 30-0 to lose 4 straight points. Sharapova will annihilate her if she is lucky enough to win today.

Tatiana loses the 2nd set 6-4. I guess this will be another 3 setter for Tati.

sticking to the positives since i wasn't sure tati would make the 3rd round.

glad to see tati can bounce back and win the 3rd set easily in the last two matches since the 2nd sets have looked pretty ugly. maybe she is making up for the tennis she missed earlier in the year.

even with her current form, i think she can play maria to a close match.

Good win for Tati. :clap2: She`s showing some signs of improvement, but at the same time she needs to play much better and eliminate those lapses, especially if she plays Maria next, which is very likely.

Good win with Dinara today Tats. :)

Well she won. That is the only positive that can be taken from today's match. Losing a set to Kremer especially after dismantling her in the first set is unacceptable.

I really struggle to see how she will compete with Sharapova tomorrow.

Aug 2nd, 2007, 02:57 AM
Tati is not the night match :sad:

She is third up on Centre Court. Means I won't be able to follow. Probably for the better since I'm not expecting much.

Very happy with the doubles win. :yeah:

This is a very good idea to play it with Dinara, it can only help her to fix her serve and find better sensations. I don't think she is that far from her best level because on her two last matches, she won the first & last set rather easily. She only needs to find consistency and concentration during the whole play.
I hope she gives her best for her match against Maria, no doubt that she can do it but she will have to believe it before. I don't want Tati to be afraid of anything. This is high time she won against a top 3 girl.

Allez ! :bounce:

Allez Tatiana! Kick some ass today against Maria and with Dinara! (I really love the pairing of Tati/Dina. They play just so well together and they have good results)

I just have a strong feeling that Tati can just DO this. I have no idea why, but Tati always fights when she plays against Maria. I have high hopes. I just hope she can play well and concentrate. Even if she loses, I will be happy if that happens. :)

She lost. 6-0 6-3

I really don't have much to say... besides go rest up and train before LA. :help: I just don't even know what to say.

Both her and Dina lost today. They better win doubles. :sad:

Devastating loss. Everybody expected that, but I never wanted to believe it.

Poor Tati, she doesn't deserve this. Maybe it's time to reconsider her position converning lower events.

It`s sad to see Tati routed like this. :sad: I wasn`t surprised that she was beaten, but it`s very obvious that she still isn`t where she needs to be and you`ve got to wonder how long it`ll take before she can get back the good form from eariler this year before the latest ankle injury. Still i have faith that Tati will get it back going soon.

she needs confidence to get her game flowing again. remember how she looked playing at AI? she looked so sure of herself. a think Mats may be able to help her believe in herself more, or maybe im just really hoping he can.

Sad to see Tati and Dinara lose in doubles. :sad: They must`ve been pretty demoralized from their blowout losses. The only positive from this loss is that Tati can take a little R&R before getting back to some training.

About what I expected today. I thought Tati would be lucky to take six games in the match. She was pathetic on serve.

If she doesn't get her ass in gear soon she has no chance of defending her QF at the US Open.

yes and the final in Germany. this fall could be a big blow to her ranking.

:rain: What a bad day for Tati. The match vs. Masha shows she's far away from her best form. One year ago she lost to her at USO 6-7 6-7 and now 0-6 3-6... :tape:

Train Tati, train. Now, Mats is coming for LA. Let's hope there will be improvements before the USO... :help:
