No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

https://www.sport.cz/tenis/clanek/11...ou.html#hp-sez


Czech source.

"Thanks Conchita for what she has done (for me), I think I became a better player thanks to her, I hope her continued success (happiness?). But I want to try to do something different.


Dissapointing, but it was obvious when she said in an interview few days ago when they asked her if she will continue with Conchita, she said "I don't know yet. I will need to think on it, reflect on some things. I will decide in a couple of days."

she also said. "I want to change a lot of things next year for big matches, event if it means I will fall out of top 10."

Personally, i think Conchita was good for her.

Karolina should hire Usain Bolt; he could teach her how to accelerate with long legs; the rest of her game is pretty solid.

Her backhand needs a bit of work imo too.

Re: No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

I thought her movement did improve under Martinez in the start of the year but then she regressed again. In particular remember being really surprised by it during the clay season.

I wonder if Pliskova just doesn't want to put in the hard work to have better movement?

Re: No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

She improved her speed and movement during that period. Maybe she wanted a slam.

Re: No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

Conchi seemed to be a really good coach for Karolina. Ohh well. Maybe Conchita can make Garbi in shape again? Lets see who Karo hires next.

SANIA JUSTINE ELENAD

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

They don’t give these partnerships enough time to flourish. But hopefully this means Conchita/Garbine for 2020.

At least Karo is smart enough to know what she actually wants and never avoid taking risks. Props to her and I wish her all the best!

Re: No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

This is actually Pliskova’s second coaching change this year. First she hired Stubbs. Stubbs brought on Conchita for extra support while Stubbs is busy commentating. Then Pliskova dropped Stubbs and kept Conchita.

Re: No.2 Karolina Pliskova parts ways with Conchita Martinez

I kinda expected this, while Karo improved in some ways and Conchi was good for her, it seemed to me like she regressed (especially in the later part of the year) a lot in the mental department. Obviously she's always had problems with big matches but her losses like against Muchová at Wimby or Kuznetsova in Cincinnati(?) were pretty much just tragic mentally.

Obviously she wants a slam, so it makes sense that she wants to focus on this more. I hope she'll remember the stuff Conchi and Rennae taught her though, as she had a very successful year
