It seems odd to me that after Pova's most successful tournament in four years, you want to hang her coach out to dry in the hot california sun. You know, the guy who obstensively got her into this position.

If Pova or Yuri, for that matter, thought Hogg was doing her harm, he would be tarred, feathered and run out of tennis on a rail!

But what we saw after this amazing tournament was Pova scampering to her box for hugs all around, an especially big hug for Hogg. Doesn't seem like Pova has any doubt about Hogg.

Seems to me you are honing a fabricated story for consumption by the English Papperrazzi in a couple of months.

Look at how far she's come since she hired Hoggy! She's only gone up.

This. Praying for severe heat and drought this year. The French can thirst so long as RG conditions are kind to Maria.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

but last year the conditions were amazing, except for windy days in the end. I know because I was there
so thinking of how usually weather is in Paris I'm extremely doubtful about it this year too
She needs to improve herself, count on her own strenght

Re: time to hire up a coach?

Yeah with the altitude in Madrid it can be pretty windy so a few wins there might give some confidence about serving in wind. I know she was really banging down the serves this week but she's showed she's been more willing to add a bit of spin to the second serves.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

Pova is a Big Babe First Strike Aggressive and Offensive Player. She is going to serve the most aggressive serve possible at any given time.

First serve, second serve, it doesn't matter.

Just served two DF's, not an issue.

Match point up, match point down, makes no difference.

What her opponent can count on is that it's coming with heat to a place on the court she doesn't want it. That's just basic Pova tennis.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

Hogstedt is doing a great job with Maria. It's only been up ever since they started collaborating. He has done wonders for her serve.

Really??? I must have been dreaming that Maria was in 4 finals this year and won the last tournament.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

I think this new Pova is amazing. She's been more fluid with her game. Now she just needs to be mentally stable.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

Im resuming this not because theres not coach in her box but just to talk about her form and training.
we all saw Maria in a very good form playing this AO but still theres a complete lack of a plan B in her game. I was wondering if hitting cross balls with more top spin would have changed at least the score of her semis (its what for instance in this AO final Azarenka did in the final of the first set), instead she kept hitting flat balls with no sense.
is her coach training her well atm? Im thinking of ROdriguez and Nanà for instance

Who is better for her Joyce or Thomas? Why did she abandon Michael?
