She needs to wake up and understand that her relationship with her coach does NOT help her game. And you need to start being realistic - she lost to De Brito, Baltacha, Wozniak, Dellqcua and Glushko this year and she keeps thinking she's still a top player which isn't true obviously.
So yeah, maybe dropping out of the top 100 or even just the 50 would help her. Obviously if she doesn't change anything in her game it's not that far from happening (saying goodbye to the top 50).
Even if you put everything in bold and capital letters, even if you add a million exclamation points, it won't change the fact that Shahar in my view is beyond help at this point. She doesn't really care about the game anymore.
When she was trying to succeed it was appropriate to speculate the way you do and think what could help her improve etc.
Now the train has left the station, and this kind of discussion is not relevant anymore.
You can be her fan all you want, but the truth is she's not a player anymore. And in a couple of years, if she continues in this path, she will retire.
