How are you so sure that a new coach will not be disruptive? It doesn't always follow that a new coach will be a positive change. Then she'll waste a few months of her career. And do you guys really think that Maria's team is this dumb to not notice if a change needs to be made? They have been working in the sport more than any of us here combined so I'm guessing they know. Also, if you say Mike's become such a good friend then wouldn't he, as a friend, maybe suggest that something needs to be done so she can please her fans and win a slam a year?
I agree.

I give Michael a lot of credit, or at least, a lack of demerits, for how well she did in paris.

If Michael had not had her on court for special practice Sunday, concentrating on smashing second serves from the opponent, she could have lost on Monday.

Her serve slowed down in the third set Wednesday--or she would have won. Building an effective serve without repeating the damage to her shoulder is a pretty tricky thing to do. They are getting there.
