Re: time to hire up a coach?
Hogg appears to be doing a great job with Pova. IMO, The worst thing Pova could do is run through a series of coaches as if it's the coach's fault she isn't performing to some fan's imaginary standard.
Pova's first career was a gradual ascent through early 2008 with an incredible serve and unbelievable forehand and appeared to be on the road to total dominance. That player died of a shoulder injury.
Pova's second career presents a player with an unrelyable serve and questionable forehand but with unparalled grit and guts. It will be exciting to see if her determination and will power can force the serve and forehand into being good enough to win the big ones. A new, exciting player on the scene with tremendous potential...
That's the way I see it.
