Is Carlos Rodriguez making the bad choices?

Since the comeback of Justine, the fans are waiting for not only result but the nice game Of Justine that the tour was missing during her absence. After her comeback we were pleased with some nice matches like those with Petrova and clijsters in Brisbane and against Dementieva in AO. The fact is that the game of Justine is getting less and less nice to watch. The last matches againt Wozniaki and clijsters showed that she is not the Justine we loved to watch and used to enjoy!
Carlos has a strategy, we know... Is he looking for result or the good game? Is he making the good choices? I think the final judgment will be after the grass season. I am sure Carlos would not be satisfied with less than the title there... The big risk is: Change the game of Henin which made her one of the best of her generation for wimledon isn't risky? When we know the mental factor of Henin, which can be strong when she wins and extremely weak when she keeps loosing: I am afraid!
Now: As far as Kim (and yanina now) is in the tour, she will keep working hard, she cannot be satisfied with less than the Belgian number 1.

I keep the faith... And eternal love... Of course.

No. Justine's fans are just impatient.

So what if he's bottomed for over 40 guys.

Re: Is Carlos Rodriguez making the bad choices?

She is just 3 months back and played only 4 tournaments.. she needs match practice. Next year, you could argue that.

The fact is not the number of tournaments, the fact is she keeps loosing! for me it doesn't matter as far as she keeps playing. I am just afraid because Justine is impatient like we are, and need results to see where she is... I hope i am wrong anyway!

Coached don't decide what players do on the court.

I think Justine's fans are waiting for you to be banned from making new threads.

Re: Is Carlos Rodriguez making the bad choices?

Are the results so bad after her comeback?? Two finals and a Semi-final? Not bad at all I assume. If you see who she'd lost too I don't think Justine is far from her best. I mean: losing to Serena and Clijsters (in tight 3-setters) is not a shame I would think!

PAST: Kim Clijsters - Maria Kirilenko - Ana Ivanovic - Yanina Wickmayer - Tatiana Golovin - Nicole Vaidisova

PRESENT: Garbiñe Muguruza - Amanda Anisimova - Fanny Stollar - Sofya Zhuk - Petra Kvitova - Sloane Stephens - Donna Vekic - Lucie Safarova - Noami Osaka - Katie Boulter

Re: Is Carlos Rodriguez making the bad choices?

Well the only tournament she'as done badly is IW. Brisbane only beaten by Kim in Final, AO only beaten by Serena in Final, Miami only beaten by Kim in Semi so that seems pretty good to me. Not really sure what you're complaing about. So is it the way she plays with her non-existant backswing you don't like - it's often pretty effective because it's difficult to read and she still gets a lot of power.

Is it that you demand she not only win but win looking pretty? Anyway - to judge Justine and Carlos after 4 tournament (3 of which she's done really well) and before the clay season seems a bit ridiculous.

Minde you - I hope she keeps getting beaten by Kim and next time in two quick sets.

Caroline Wozniacki

Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters

Re: Is Carlos Rodriguez making the bad choices?

Oh i think ole lil miss Henin will be alright once she plays a little more. its still early. once she gets a few more matches in she will be fine. I do see her winning some clay tournaments..even possiby Rolland Garros this year. She just better hope she doesnt get the curse Venus got when she took a mini hiatus in 2003 from the US Open to Australian. When she came back it seemed like her confidence left her and came back a little different. Talent still there but not 100% of what we are use to until WImbledon (French if Justine can win it consistently again) rolls around. I think a lot of girls see her more vunurable now. Kim is officially unafraid of her...and that wasnt the case from the past. The Williams Sisters and Sharapova never feared her..and i'm sure Jankovic believes she's going to beat her now..so i dont know i guess we will have to wait and see. I still see her game...but just not as solid as it use to be. Her situation really does remind me of the Venus from the past vs present.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
