I expected this to happen sooner. Better late than never.

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

Huh...did not see this coming. But I guess she thinks she needs some new input? Very curious to see who she will be working with, hope she finds someone soon/ already has someone.

I don't know the real reasons for the split but if he continues coaching there is no way Hoggy goes to coach juniors imo - unless he settles down in some academy because of the not wanting to travel anymore argument. He's too good of a coach, too established in tennis to do that. And that's what happens in sports business - you split and find a new place to work. Not that big of a deal.

I have to admit, there's been times over the past couple of months where I've wondered if something's up in her personal life, because she's been acting a bit out of character. Maybe it was because of tension in her camp / with Hogstedt?

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

Surprising. Did not expect that. But if Maria does it in the middle of the season, I guess she feels it became an emergency and she's been thinking about it quite a lot. She has three warm-ups to play until USO I guess, which gives her time to adapt to her new coach's technique etc. I can see several scenarios.

1) She wants to get closer to Dimitrov, and will hire a coach from his academy so that they can train together or something.
2) She wants to take the next step in her game, hit harder with much more consistency, then she might choose Ricardo Sanchez who is a PERFECT FIT
3) UNLIKELY : She wants to put some variety in her game and will hire Navratilova, Hingis or Rodriguez (Haha). In fact, I guess it would be a great move because she DOES HAVE a good hand, great dropshots, good volleys, killer shots to go take on the net, so maybe it is the time to do so and physically it is less demanding so yeah...
4) She might get back her dad for few times and if they work out, he'll stay around. I actually like Yuri !
5) MY DREAM : She hires Dementieva <3

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

I really hope it's NOT Yuri or any other relative/friend. She needs a "professional" imo.

I was just kidding, I actually disliked the work Sears has done with Ana in the past year or so. Yes, he got her back after the worst of her falls, but after that, he did nothing to improve her game or psychological problems, which IMO are a greater problem for her right now. Anyway, I'm really interested in seeing who her new coach will be, hopefully someone who will continue Hoggy's legacy in true colors

I don't mind Yuri back. Maria played on fire with him around. Any coach from ATP player side? I'm sure Thomas is not going to work with Wozniacki because of the entire family around. Possibly Nigel will be working with Wozniacki. I think it could be someone she knows for a while. Knowing her, she's not gonna work with a new person in the middle of the season. Perhaps Michael will help her in a bit first?

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

Some suppose that it can be Brad Gilbert. It would be not bad I guess.

I guess for me, it's an issue of confidentiality and Maria facing Hoggy's future player in a big tourney and being at a competitive disadvantage because of it. I know it happens (after all, Maria "stole" Hoggy from Li), but just leaves a bad taste.

I was mostly kidding, too. I don't know much about coaches so maybe Sears is a good coach, but his track record with VIP leaves a lot to be desired. I almost think he has to prove himself in being able to take a player to the next level, and I don't like the idea of Maria being that "trial" or "proof point" player if it makes sense.

Again, don't know much about coaches, but I cringe at this one mostly because of his twitter and inability to pronounce/spell players' names correctly.

Also, I don't like the fact that she said "in the next few days," mostly because it means we won't find out this week as she's probably not releasing information over the weekend. Maybe it will be a picture during her first(?) practice post-Wimbledon the week before Stanford.
