Re: Rumours Circulating : Naomi Osaka Hires Wim Fissette As New Coach

what is the source are they just saying that because her mom followed him on Instagram ? she already told the media she was going to be coached by her dad for the rest of the season ,so maybe Wim is next season

The off-season training block is so important. It will make or break a player's first half of the year (maybe even the entire year), it would not be smart at all for her to be coached by her dad during this time. It makes sense for her to hire a coach around this time, especially if they are hoping to do something at the YEC.

I wouldn't pay credence to what she says with regard to such practical things, I doubt she has that much say and insight into her parent's dealings

Wim should go back to Kim anyway.

For how long has Wim been coaching Azarenka the second time? Would be quite surprising if he ditched Vika like this for Naomi.

That would be good, Wim is a good coach, he should work with good and talented players, not with has beens from weak eras. I'm not sure if their personalities will match, but if they do, this could be big trouble for the other girls.

No source in the article or is the agent testing waters - so see if there is any backlash on coach poaching like the Murray saga? Getting coached via FaceTime

Stop this: I like it BUT ya'll need to calm down until something is officially announced. Why are you opening up this Thread @MalJackson . You're consistently jumping the gun waaay too fast
You'll need to learn staying put until Naomi officially introduces him as her new Coach!

No, Kim will snatch her other old coach Carl Maes back on the road with her.
