Re: time to hire up a coach?

it was all the serve..when she hit doubles she's feel discouraged for the rest of the game..It's an important issue, when it seems it's getting better she finds a top player and it just disappears

Re: time to hire up a coach?

How come she can't play high quality tennis even more? She is the same fuckin' person ! Doesn't she have the confidence anymore or did the shoulder surgery limit her in her play ( God knows how that could be ? I seriously don't get it, she isn't even on 55% of her best . Maria seriously needs to think about all this stuff, god it's frustrating and sad to see Maria struggle like this.

The serve needs to be fixed ASAP and please get some experts to help you girl.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

I saw Maria practice and it seemed to me like Joyce was more of a hitting partner than coach. I did not see her practice any lower ball toses and I did not hear Michael say anything about lowering her ball toss. I don't necessarily think she needs a new coach just maybe another coach.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

It definitely wouldn't hurt to get someone with a fresh look in the team.

However, I seriously doubt she would even consider changing up her team.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

I really believe she needs to get Lansdorp back on board. Not as a travelling coach but as someone who she has training blocks with at home and then acts as a consultant for Maria and Mike when they are on the road.

The thing is, we all know maria has been working hard off the court - but her play and form has still been patchy. you guys are right, a second opinion won't hurt, it can only help right?

I think she needs to polish her groundies even more, just like she does with her footwork.

Ugh, I hate the player in my sig.

Re: time to hire up a coach?

This was her worst performance for some while.

Getting crushed by WOZNIAKI? The problem is obviously mental and tactical - her stats have been among the best across the slam. This time she didn't have that bad a draw. She was playing well leading in. Wozniaki had played two straight tournaments prior to this - and STILL Masha finds a way to go out early.

Maria needs to defend some of her autumn points - but then it needs to be back to serious reworking with a new coach who can get her mental issues sorted, and some better tactics for next season. I don't think Lansdorp is a good idea. He's not a serve coach and Maria needs someone to develop NEW facets in her game. Either that. or bring back Yuri. Something needs to be done.

Then she's going to keep losing. The last big change to her team was to kick out Yuri. Since then her ecord has been dire

Re: time to hire up a coach?

I'll be surprised if Yuri doesn't push Maria into getting a new/additional coach. He seems to be the one that she really listens to and after this year, I can't believe he will keep his opinions to himself. It will be interesting to see. As well, I would like someone like BJK to say something to Maria as well. I think Maria really looks up to her. She needs a woman in her camp.
