Re: will Simona ever win a 2nd slam now ?
Will she ever win another title? She thinks she's too big to play MMs now, but she can't win anything above that level. I'm still at a loss to explain how she lost a final to Mertens.
She needs a real coach, but I'm not sure any big-time coach is interested in working with her. They know she's a limited talent who seems satisfied with what she's already achieved, and she's too emotionally attached to Cahill. Look at all the younger girls coming up now with so much more potential. Anisimova, Vondrousova, Andreescu, Swiatek, Osaka...Taking on Simona at 27/28, with her established refusal to develop her game beyond grinding, seems a fool's errand. I've been saying for years she'll retire by 29, and it's looking more and more like her only goal left is the 2020 Olympics. Once she loses there, she'll quit.
