They have probably both grown up a fair bit in that time, it's difficult to guess what their dynamic will be like now. Yuri certainly seems to have mellowed out from what I have seen, and when we have heard of his involvement in coaching in recent times (like the rain delay phone call at last year's USO), his influence was postitive.

Either way, I'm fairly certain this is just a temporary fix. The only way I can see Yuri staying on is if Maria does exceptionally well. Have to bear in mind that Maria has always said her father wanted to find expertise for Maria, rather than trying to apply it himself.

Yeah I was just imagining if he had... I don't think Yuri is like that either.
