It's an odd time for a coaching change right before a new season commences. But this coaching change is long overdue. I still wish Maria would get a serving coach because that's where her tennis problems lie.

Thomas Hogstedt a former Swedish tennis professional is Masha's new coach. I hope it works. I think it was time for a change. But I must tip my hat to Michael Joyce for all he did for Maria over the years. :hatoff:
