Re: Five UVa women's tennis players suspended
Haha wow. You really think I'm some sort of fool, don't you? I wouldn't come on here and make things up. I am friends with several former players, and I agree with your point that "he is respected by many parents and players but not all."
I would not come on here and say something like that unless I had heard it directly from people who had experience with him. I do think that he can be an excellent coach for the right type of girl, especially from a pure tennis perspective, but if you look at his record of player attrition, just to start, it's clear that he has a very divisive style.
I also have many family members who live in Charlottesville and have spent a significant amount of time there. I'm not just putting together stuff I read online.
I completely respect your opinion, and you make many valid points, but please don't act like I am some crazy person posting BS, because that is not my style at all. The point of a forum is that people can share their opinions, which I have done based on facts and stories that I have heard DIRECTLY from people who have played for and interacted with Coach Guilbeau. Your first post is very fair, but the other two paint me as some sort of hack, and I find that offensive.
