Yep - he's a troll. Check out this guy's earlier posts to see how he really feels about Caroline.

Here's what Sanchez said:

“I was told that I would be free to coach her as I wished, and then I was given very little margin to do so,” Sanchez said. “In just five weeks I went from being a coach to being just a consultant.

“Her father put together his own training system, and I was pushed into the background.”

What I'm wondering about is why the change in Sanchez's freedom to coach. Perhaps it was a lot easier for Piotr to give up control when it was a pretty abstract thing.

I am no tennis expert but from a few quotes from him I gained an impression that he came up with the usual ideas her detractors have about her game. In short: you must be more aggressive.
But I think that if you look at Caroline's career it shows the opposite. She achieved her success playing the opposite way based on patience and moving the opponent around the court rather than trying to attack. I think that a style that is natural for her and to change all that now when she's 21 was just a silly idea. Who knows, maybe when she heard him talking she thought 'oh no, that's what I have heard thousand times and now I even have to pay for it'

I think she was looking for someone who would help her to develop HER style not to force her play the way that they think is right without considering what suits her. That idea with hitting forehand instead of a backhand or being happy that she injured her wrist since she'd be forced to do forehands summed it up for me. I had a gut feeling that this wouldn't last long.

I think she'll not hire a coach for a long time from now on. Let's see what she and Piotr can do. Maybe this will work out best for them.
Early in her career (through her 1st couple of years on the senior level) she wasn't as defensive. So it shouldn't be a completely foreign way to play.

I don't think Sanchez was actually happy that she was injured. It did present an opportunity to work more on her forehand though. It's sort of like how she was sick in Doha last year and had to play pretty aggressively against Flavia (even more agressively than her typical level of more aggressive play).

Caro started to win the premier 5s/premier mandatories when she got more aggressive and improved her serving. Her forehand was also a solid to good shot.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

So why is Caro in Dubai? Shouldn't she be in Doha getting used to conditions there? It is her next tournament afterall not Dubai.

Thats like saying why is she in New York when the tournament is in New Jersey.

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Burisleif is right,Protoss;the United Arab Emirates and Qatar border on each other,so it's not as if Caroline had to travel any huge distance from one to the other

Weather conditions can vary even with moderate distances in between. Also the courts and balls can play differently. I believe that Dubai plays a lot faster than Doha, so I'd rather see Caro get used to things in Doha as that's her next tournament.

Does that make sense?

That's from 2nd Feb, Caro gave her reply in the TV2 article I linked to in AaI Thread Post 1476 dated 2hrs later?

Basically, She states (words to the effect of) that they wanted to see at the start of the season and through the AO if he could bring some impetus and ideas to her game. She goes on to say he didn't, and that she already knew what needs to be improved with her game etc.

You can subjectively surmise many things, but one of those could be that it just wasn't working so there was no point to keeping to his new training methods?

Did her wrist injury occur before the 2nd December hiring or was it perhaps inflicted during a new training system?

Too many questions without answers, and it's likely to stay that way.

She has a new temp assistant / hitting partner now?

It's so 2011

The Weather is hot coastal desert at both locations (probably more variation with time than location). The wind conditions might be slightly different thats all (agin probably due to weather at the time) however, it's reported 0m/s both locations with similar temps. Caro knows the courts pretty well, and are we sure she hasn't popped across to check out the courts (if they are even different)? I'm not sure if moving between the venues is of enough of a benefit over having a stable base in the region for the duration?

I assume they have it covered...

Hopefully Caro continues to work on her 1-handed volley and slice even though Sanchez isn't her coach anymore.

No,it sounds more like you just didn't know where they were on the map...and now you're concocting an excuse to hide the fact that you spoke in ignorance.It just so happens that I know an Emirati woman,a dear friend,who has family in Qatar,also.As Burisleif mentioned,the weather differences are usually NOT that significant...so there aren't going to be any serious adjustments for Caroline barring a major climatological fluke

Re: Danish Delight - Caroline Wozniacki thread - vol 5

Sharapova and Kvitova aren't playing Doha. According to the tournament website Vika will be playing, but she skipped Fed Cup and some of her fans are talking about her maybe skipping Doha, too. Will Caro be the #1 seed again or #2 seed for the first time since August 2010?
