Great news about Pratty Her wealth of experience from playing on the WTA for years is probably going to be of some benefit for Jess & the rest of the young Aussie girls. Hopefully they can take advantage of that.
I wonder where this leaves David Taylor? Wasn't he supposed to be the Head Women's Coach AND the Fed Cup Captain AND Samantha Stosur's personal coach?
Good decision to retire him from Head Women's Coach. That is simply too much on his plate.
Pratty will bring a real professionalism and great work ethic to the scene. Hopefully the girls take full advantage of all of her knowledge and experience
Im just watching some of his match against Mayer. Its such a bad standard. Even up a set and a break Carsten's body language is pretty average. Not that his opponents is much better.
Anyway good on him for taking advantage of such an opportunity!
There's more to life than just being happy.
Yeah Carsten's body language is pretty average I've noticed too, but he has a good serve especially when he kicks it. The commentators during that match said he needs to add more consistency in his game & for him to improve on his mobility. But really this final is somewhat of a breakthrough for him - don't know exactly how far it will take him.
