Re: Mouratglou: Serena was an underachiever before working with me!
I understand what he's saying, but I wish he'd wait until she retires to speak so openly about their coaching relationship. Serena was hyper motivated coming back from her blood clot and after losing the US Open final in 2011. Patrick introduced some new elements to her game no doubt - she played with much more margin and her fitness in 2012-2013 was nearly peak - but those were also two of her healthiest years on tour. In 2010 she was playing injured but at a very high level, and there was already a sense that her game, specifically her serve and hitting, was beginning to mature past relying as much on her athleticism and more on her technical prowess.
