Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

If losing to Serena Williams is a reason for firing your coach every wta player could fire her coach. You suggested Martina Hingis, and I don't question Hingis' tennis intellect or her qualities as a coach. But if she would employ Hingis in the hope of learning to play some Hingis-like tennis I think it would be a huge mistake because their respective strenghts and weaknesses are totally different, even opposite from one another. It reminds me a bit of the "Wozniacki should be more aggressive" argument. It doesn't work because it doesn't come natural to her. I don't think that you become a better player by trying to be something you're not, but by trying to improve each part of your game by 1% and then another 1%. I think that Hogstedt is doing an excellent job with Maria in that regard.
