Did Ai hire a new coach, work hard on something over winter, something else?? What has spurred her sudden terrific play?

Last off-season, she trained hard both physically and mentally.
Also, she mentioned that after losing to Monica, Mauresmo, Henin and those top 10 players at the beginning of the season, she has learned a lot about being stable mentally during the game... and those could be the key for winning. I guess winning those top 10 players giving her lots of confidence. I hope losing to Chanda this tourney doesnt lose her confidence again! :p

Some players just take awhile to come into their own...
