Re: Mouratglou: Serena was an underachiever before working with me!

Whether his assertion is literally true or not is immaterial. If Mouratglou wants to remain as Serena’s coach this assertion is the absolutely wrong thing to utter. It is true in general terms that if one does not toot one’s horn a disinterested person will not do it for you. But it is a different kettle of fish in an employer employee relationship, No employer would take kindly to any employee who suggests that if it was wasn’t for him/her the employer would not be as successful. If the employee wishes to remain in employment he/she must be content with any praise the employer deigns to lavish. Of course once the employee is no longer in the employ of the employer he/she is free to assert all the accomplishments he/she effected during the said employment. Alas in such cases no disinterested person would be interested.

Patrick.. Seriously
She is the most overachieved ever in sports history.

Patrick having a point and being an egocentric attention-seeker are not mutually exclusive, you know? If people accepted that, we could have skipped some of the debate in this thread.

13 slams in 13 years in your prime 20s are better than 10 in 5 years in your 30s?
She was done and going to retire around 2012. Patrick made her success happen.
Which Hollywood? What are you talking about?

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.

And that's understandable. What's the point of trying to race to 25 slams for people that just shit on you for your entire career?

Naomi's right...the point is to be happy in whatever you do.
I think Naomi's split with Bajin goes way more deeper than just that or being happy whatever it is. We never know. And every players have their own fair share of haters. I would like to say that almost every players on WTA tour now are being shitted since the beginning of their career and up to now. It's part of being in the spotlight. Look at Naomi, every now and then people keep trying to bring her down by saying she's struggling et cetera et cetera..

I guess, the only way to be happy for them is to appreciate fans & haters as it is. Nothing more, nothing less. That way they can have their own peace of mind. Fans & haters only related to their tennis career, not their life

She won four slams in the 2009-2010 season then almost died and missed a year from the tour. "Had gotten old and lost motivation?"
