It might be why her return has deteriorated so much
If a flop here will make her realize that Cahill is not the coach she needs, then bring it on! Winning a GS in the future is more important imo, and I don't know if Cahill can help her there.

From her statements and social media activity, I think she feels somewhat guilty/sorry that she finally achieved her second biggest goal with Pavel, without Darren next to her. So she might make the huge mistake of not calling Pavel to Singapore.

It's not the first time when I have the feeling that these sessions with Darren would be better off during the off-season. They don't really gear her up for the intensity of the upcoming matches.

I used to rather blame her for most of the flops she had with him next to her. But if she flops in RR for a 3rd year in a row, I will feel more than ever that it's time for him to go. Not because he's a bad guy or coach (not at all), but maybe his age or analyst/commentator approach are not really what she needs before a tournament. Off-season maybe. Before a warm-up tournament maybe. But not few days before having to face the very best.

Anyway, pretty mature answers from her otherwise (she's finally 26 - or maybe she always gave better answers in Romanian, I'm not sure).
