Maria certainly doesn't need that kind of coach. She has enough of her own experiences running into a Serena brick wall. Maria was 0-7 against Serena under Thomas and won one set.
Maria's atrocious record against Serena with Hogstedt as coach is the main reason this coaching change was made. I hope Connors can spur Maria on especially against Williams and to a lesser extent against Vika and Na. We shall see. Hogstedt helped Pova win the career slam 13 months ago but it was time for him to go. I hope Jimmy can help Masha with her serve but he was not a good server so I have my doubts about that.. Maybe Jimmy can spark Pova the way he did Roddick. We shall see.

On Sharapova and Connors: I suspect he's not going to be around every tournament & there will be a coach working under him. She does..
Roddick did say when he split with Connors that one of the factors was Connors "maybe did not get the results he wanted". I kind of feel like if he doesn't lead Maria to a Slam title within the next 12 months that he probably won't hang around. If he DOES get her that Slam title then who knows though.

I still maintain that the serve is sorted (or atleast, as sorted as it will ever be) and should be one of her lowest priorities to work on now.

Anyone know if Chrissie was following Maria on twitter? If she did, she isn't anymore.

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

You gotta love how most people don't want Connors as her coach because they don't like him as a person

It's also ridiculous to think she wants a different coach for the sole purpose of beating Serena.

As for myself, I will just wait and see how this turns out. If it doesn't work I'm sure Maria will change it sooner rather than later.

I thought Chrissie's tweet was saying she didn't mind that Jimmy is coaching Maria?

Re: Maria and Thomas go seperate ways

I'm nervous about it. I don't expect it to turn out a la Murray-Lendl, I feel it's more likely to be a disappointment than the ideal choice for Maria.
It's an intriguing move anyway, curious to see how it'll go.

Knowing Maria she would only work with someone she knows for a while and Jimmy Connors fit that criteria. He knows her game and has been partnering behind the scene I'd say after Miami.

I believe the decision was made after Miami that Wimbledon was the last tournament they were going work together. Remember Maria said Wimbledon was her priority this year? I'm thinking its because her grass result hasn't been great and it's their last chance to tweak things around. If it clicked then Thomas would stay if not, split.

I like Jimmy, bring back her cockiness on court and her lethal stare.

Although we often hear "I want 2 spend more time w/ family' as smokescreen 4 other things, apparently Hogstedt really did say that 2 Maria
