Mona should ask Howard to become her permanent tourcoach. As her fan i would support this idea wholeheartedly.
It`s quite funny that you mention this.
I really like and appreciate Howard`s clear, calm and well-thought way to analize matches and the game of players.
We have some contact via pm since longer and half year ago I proposed that he should come to Germany and coach Mona. I would try to arrange the meeting.
Of course I was joking but I`m absolutely convinced that, as far as I know him, Howard must be a heck of a coach. And he imo would fit perfectly to Mona.
Okay, for not overdoing it, I`ll stop at this point.
I think this little break will help her in the end, even if it was forced due to an illness. She can now recover without ruffle or excitement and then she can start preparing for the French Open with her homecoach Maik Schürbesmann. And we all know what happens to her form after some preparation at home.
So c'mon guys and girls, let's get optimistic again! Mona will do well at the French Open.
