Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

So he should be fired because Maria can't beat one player?
That's ridiculous.

Besides, no tennis trainer can help her when she's facing Serena, it's all mental. Maria needs to get over that herself.

This. Even though Hodstedt has been so instrumental in resurrecting her career, he can only do some much. Maria has to find it within herself to go the extra mile and challenge Serena.

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

This thread is ridiculous. Particularly the wait til after RG 2013 option. Is that supposed to suggest that should she fail to defend a slam, which she never did in her so called "Prime" she should sack him then?

Maria's lost to two players this year, one of whom she beat handily the next time they played and has won two titles already. Today's performance was pretty dire but it's clearly on Maria. The one time she implemented some sort of strategy against Serena (which Hogstedt surely came up with) she took a set and went up a break in the second. Maria's game matches up badly with Serena and she's further hurt by Serena being in her head so badly. Thomas brought Maria back to the very top complete with slam finals and a victory (so far) after two years in the wilderness.

So no is the definitive and only logical answer to this question. Maria may never beat Serena again but Serena's an all time great and Maria can handily beat every other player on the tour and has done so.

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

Of Course not, where the hell did this idea come from? Since Hogstedt joined Maria's team Maria has been as consistent as ever, he practically helped Maria to go back where she was and be even better . Without him I think she would have been a decent top 15 player not a top 3 player.

May be she should make up YET another inventive excuse like you said

Its fascinating to see how she finds a different excuse for her every loss against her

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

Every time Maria loses against Serena, this topic comes up. It's getting tiring. She is and has been No.2 for a long while now thanks to Hoggy. There is nothing wrong with her game. Her DFs are associated with nervousness and pressure from the fact that she was playing Serena. The only person who can help her beat Serena is herself. Full stop. I am sure Maria is fully aware of that herself now. Did you not hear Hoggy's advice to her on court today? She wasn't there! The real Maria wasn't there! Her mind was elsewhere. She did not focus.

I agree with some of the posters. This thread is pointless and should be scrapped.

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

I honestly think Hogstedt saved Maria from being what Ivanovic has been like the past few years.

Yup, exactly. She was teetering there on her first year and a half from comeback with Joyce.

This Serena block she has is all on her, no coach is fixing that.

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

Agree with pretty much all the responses in here.

I do think though that she should go to a serve specialist, something she's never done since her comeback, she needs a motion and toss that isn't going to break down. There's always going to be nerves creeping in on her serve for the rest of her career, that would reduce the impact of such moments.

Re: Does Maria need to Fire Thomas Hogstedt

I don't think she needs to fire Thomas. It's all by herself, If she doesn't want to change her game, nobody can make her do it.
But i think she need to be more aggressive in her game, Let's learn something from Serena's game, sometimes hit the ball in the middle and wait to a easy ball or a mistake from opponent is not a best idea. Please more aggrassive, and you have more chance in Wimbledon.
And I don't think her serve is bad but lack of confident against Serena. Like commentary said If she doesn
t believe she can beat Serena, She'll never win.
