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.
I dont think employing somebody like Hingis makes her game Hingis-like, TBH hingis is more talented than Maria, I just want Hingis to come and add some variety to her game like some slices, change of pace, redirecting pace etc. Since she is a master-class player she can identify whats wrong with her game than Thomas my opinion
