Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors



Quote:
Sven Groeneveld has more than 20 years experience as a coach for both ATP as WTA players. As a coach Groeneveld achieved 3 Grand Slam titles with 3 different players; Monica Seles, Australian Open (1992), Mary Pierce, Australian Open (1995) and Ana Ivanovic, Roland Garros (2008).

As a coach Groeneveld also achieved 5 Grand Slam finals with 5 different players; Aranxta Sanches Vicario, Australian Open (1994), Mary Pierce, Roland Garros (1994), Michael Stich, Roland Garros (1995), Ana Ivanovic, Roland Garros (2007) and Caroline Wozniacki, US Open (2009). Groeneveld led Ana Ivanovic in 2008 and Caroline Wozniacki in 2010 to a year end number 1 position.
So does she want consistency in the rankings, one more slam, or Monica Seles' old coach?

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

Hmmm. Isn't he Adidas and didn't he big up Woz's win at IW?

It better be more Monica and less of those other two he also coached, but OK then...

EDIT: Didn't see he also coached Pierce, but yeah as for his recent track record ...

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

I'm happy with this move. He's been doing really good work with adidas recently. And he really cannot be any worse than Connors.

What was Thomas' track record when Maria hired him?

Right, but Monica has more talent in her pinky finger then Caro and Ana combined.
I think he's a good coach.

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

I'm relieved! Maria's shoulder must be good enough for her to hire a full time coach, that's the best news yet!

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

Well, I don't think I could have been 100% satisfied whatever her choice ended up being. Guess we'll just have to wait and see, right now I'm neither here nor there, but she could have made a far worse choice, so, there's that Oh, and since when did VIP end 2008 as world number 1? That is Empress' spot

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

I think he is an experienced coach who worked with stars and is a successful coach. Moreover he doesn't look like a dull or with absence of sense of humor guy.

Only time will show how successful will be Masha with him, At least he can't be less successful than Masha's previous coach.

What is more, they will look great together on the court, Sven is a very tall man

Re: Daddy Knows Best: Maria back with Papa Yuri after split from Connors

Sven is not a bad choice at all. Personally, I am significantly more comfortable now than when she announced Jimbo.
We'll have to give them some time, I guess. I'm not counting on an explosive-return-Clijsters-style. Maria seems to be hungry for more victories and Sven is a pretty good coach. Hope it works for the better.
All the best to both of them.
