This is what I posted at another site. I realize it's not entirely relevant to what you're trying to do here, but at least it's a contribution and I can edit it later.
Had to take a trip out of town today, so I had time to refelect on the match and this past season overall.
Considering all the injuries and problems Capriati had to deal with the results were even better than one could have expected. She had a good spell during the clay season and played really well at the US Open.
There is little she can be faulted with in losing to Dementieva. She proved all the critics who insist she is unfit wrong, by runnig down so many balls. Overall, she served well during thetournament and easily colsed the previous matches she played. OK, she doulbe-faulted at 6-5 yesterday, but that was nerves, rather than bad serving. Where she really needs to improve is in being much more agressive, going for her shots rather than waiting for the opponent to make a mistake. But I know she knows that in her heart of hearts and is just having problems putting it on court. I think it's like everything in life. You explain things to yourself rationally, but when it comes to the crunch it's so easy to revert back to the old habits.
Many posters here urged her to take a different coach. She did try and it didn't seem to work. If she herself feels most comfortable working with her dad than so be it.
As for next year, I truly believe that many oppourtunities lie ahead of her. Seeing that she probably won't make the championships, she'll have the benefit of an extended lay-off period to recuperate and nurse her injuries. Also she must put more work into her physical training thus cutting down the likelihood of new injuries occurring. I hope the Australian Open will be a great chance for her and provide the confidence she needs to continue. Lindsay has proved that even at this age you can compete at the highest level provided you're injury free.
As for the Russian wave, I don't know what to think. Yes, the've had a pheonomenal run this year and you can't take anything away from them. I t remains to be seen if they can maintain this consistency (Hantuchova and Dokic being a case in point). In my mind this is what distinguishes the good players from the great. And there is no doubt that Jennifer falls into the latter category. She is one of the greatest fighters in sport and has bounced back time and time again. I'm sure she'll get good support from her family and friends and be back soon and stronger.
I for one anm a die-hard fan and will be 100% behind her for as long as she choose to play this game. Good luck Jen! Believe in yourself
