Sort of agree. Before starting to work with Hogstedt, Martha would mostly stick to the old BS Bolletierite mantra "I don't need to make any adjustments, I'll just go out there and play my game as it's good enough to beat anyone". With Hogstedt in command, she'd often show up for matches with fully thought-out game plans - only sometimes they'd be the wrong ones.
