Haha. This article reads to me like a drawn out swipe at Ivanovic, who Dave Taylor used to coach until some time during her post-FO champion slump

His comments about the possibility of getting dumped by players who look to blame others for their disappointments, and players who are interested in celebrity rather than tennis, seem to suggest this.

Didn't really think about that when I first read it, but you could be right!

Like Siderophyre I hadn't read it like this either, but it definitely sounds plausible. In any case it really underscores how great it is that Dave and Sam found each other in a world otherwise so dominated by big egos.

Re: Sammy Stosur News & Articles Thread

I'm sure he wasn't deliberately trying to start a media-war with Ana or anything; he might not have even been consciously thinking of her. But a lot of his positive comments about Sam seemed to depend upon a comparison with what he thinks "other" players are like, and the Ana comparison seems to fit with almost everything that he said.

...or maybe I'm just bored with WTA off-season and have too much time on my hands

Re: Sammy Stosur News & Articles Thread

Don't want to start a war either, but I'm sure Sam was a nice change for Dave after coaching Ana. Know what you mean about off-season, it's maddening. The worst thing is that without any actual results to bring me down to earth I catch myself from time to time daydreaming about golden slams and such for Sam next year. Definitely time for a reality check

Had no idea about Hingis, Maleeva and MKiri.

I keep watching highlights clips on youtube from matches that I know Sammy won, so I'm building my expectations up as well. The Australian summer could be a harsh letdown

I knew about Ana, and seem to vaguely remember something about him having worked with Hingis, but the others are news to me. All in all a pretty precocious lot (except for Alicia and not sure about Maleeva), so it must be a big relief for Dave to be working with someone as down to earth as Sam now.

Last year was already a huge letdown, so maybe that should be our frame of reference

National Sam Stosur Day, has a good ring to it. Not sure if it'll fly in the Netherlands, but I can give it a try

"Stosur slips into Singapore unnoticed." They manage to make it sound like locating the exit and finding a taxi for yourself at an airport are complex tasks!

Reminds me of Eastbourne last year, where the commentary guy on the website almost fell off his chair in admiration at how Sam walked all the way from the locker room to the interview on her own without waiting for the customary escort to hold her hand on the way.
