^ Which happened during the grass season.

Too many threads get confusing.

Can't you guys be a little more organized in terms of where to post what?
This thread is about the grass season, which is over, and people come here to post about changing the coach.

Maybe Ana did fire Nigel and will work with Ječmenica for some time, that is only thing that may be true, but nothing more than that.
Yeah, it's looking like a huge troll attempt

OP should update the thread title, the proper one would be: Ana is still Ana. The most predictable player ever.

People stop being so naive. Until you've read from an actual reliable source, don't trust anything...especially not from somebody on twitter (https://twitter.com/NewsWta) who has posted in total 3 Tweets and they're all related to Ana Ivanovic ---> SCAM and fake!

''After the Tatjana Ječmenica partnership over it said she plan go coach less till clay season of 2014''
Really?? She's already planning ahead till clay 2014 of next year to be without a coach? As if!

Seriously some people have way too much time on their hands to be making stuff up.

Yes.. I was just going to write that. I was checking the accounts and I'm not sure..

The @NewsWTA one only has those tweets and nothing more, which is at least strange.

Maybe this is all pure internet rumor.. we should just wait to see if any real news come up in the next few days.

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

lmfao, this is sooo predictable. she fires a coach, then she decides to stay coachless for another 9 months. She doesn't need to be told what to do, she wants to be her own boss. Nigel said that he knows that Ana should put on some weight, but it's not simple. lmfao, now that sentence finally makes sense. It's not that simple with Ana, not in general. As I said. it's not Nigel's fault, she's become an irrational, deluded, spoiled brat. We all know what happens next. She suffers a severe slump, but stubbornly stays coachless until Gavin or someone forces her to hire someone. Then she works very hard to get to the level she was at with Nigel, but since she can't move to the next level... Well...

I think she might be a mature woman, at least more mature that Ana.

Nigel tried to make her game more stable in the beginning, but that was only in the beginning, he started telling her to wear the pants not long after that. FFS, he's not an idiot, he doesn't ask her to push like a moron, it's her decision. She is gutless and that's it. She feels safer when she's pushing. Her shot selection is laughable, she can't read her opponent's serve at all. She's rushing. That's not about coach, but about her. Whose fault is it that she doesn't have a fitness coach and physio? Whose fault is it that she has a schedule like a top 5 player? Why doesn't she try harder on MMs? Why doesn't she enter Budapest or Palermo? She barely played on grass, she can continue a clay season.

It's really crazy to assume that Nigel doesn't see some pretty obvious things, it can't be that we're all here smarter and better coaches than him. There's no way that he knows nothing about her game and tactics. It simply can't be done with her. She lost some weight again, as I could see. She won't hire a psychologist, she won't get any bigger and stronger, it doesn't look like she wants to work hard. So, what can any coach do there? To spank her? To teach her some responsibility and maturity? It's not in their job's description.

She will fire him, however. She's a lazy and spoiled brat, so she hopes that she can buy a coach who will magically fix her game and brain. Sorry, that's not gonna happen.
Never were truer words spoken.

Agree 100%. Great post!
