She had some nice winners but it was rare. Her "coach" is Karlis, a foremer Latvian "tennis player". He was ranked about 300 I think and he's a really bad advice giver: "hit the 1st serve as a 2nd", "hit the balls higher".
Just silly advices. She needs someone else to coach her.
He really said that to her?
She needs to get a steady coach who will help her be just as agressive as she was towards the end of the 09 season.
