Yeah Julia is a serve-bomberFrom what little I have learned about Goerges her primary weapon is her serve. She hit 12 aces in her 1R match and she has the ninth fastest serve recorded. But unless she starts serving like Lisicki did at Wimbledon I think she should be manageable for Caro.
:wavey:I won't lie. We all know Wozniaki is a potential Favorite-in-Waiting for me. But after last night...
all the way.
Caroline got a lot of her serves which might have been aces, didn't win them all but made Georges think.From what little I have learned about Goerges her primary weapon is her serve.

Huh. Interesting. Does anyone know if it worked?
After the match I went to have a meeting with my new sponsor Rolex. Going to pick out a nice watch tomorrow after practice! Nice
That's your opinion Caro and several coaching experts agree that he has done a marvellous job for her. I believe they are right, that said, he does say some stupid things at times, but name one coach who doesn't.Piotr :weirdo:
Seriously this guy is a moron :help: how was he a professional athelete back in the day :shrug:
How much say does Piotr have in getting Caro a REAL coach?
Who besides people in the Danish tennis federation? and please you can't compare Piotr's idiocy to any other coach.That's your opinion Caro and several coaching experts agree that he has done a marvellous job for her.

I recently read an article about how some training experts supported what he did, and said that very few others could have made the same result, I'll see if I can find the link later...Who besides people in the Danish tennis federation? and please you can't compare Piotr's idiocy to any other coach.
It is my opinion and I'm sorry if being negative about Piotr annoys anyone in this thread. I love Caro and I am 100% behind her but on Piotr I can't understand, don't get him and don't think he really knows what the hell he is doing with Caro's career. I mean telling Caro to argue with the umpire and linespeople to get calls in her favour as a tatic :weirdo:
If Piotr has a major say (which I think he does) in who Caro's coach will be for the future then I am worried.
Dokic's dad is a complete nutcase. Thankfully for Dokic she has no contact with him anymore.Many many players who have been coached by parents have been more or less destroyed mentally (or physically) Pierce, Capriati, Lucic, Dokic just to name a few.
Yeah I remember Sandie :sad: she was/is a good girl, but her dad was way to keen to make a star out of her. Apparently he has became more and more psychotic, it's a tragedy.Dokic's dad is a complete nutcase. Thankfully for Dokic she has no contact with him anymore.
But I Danish female tennis there's also an insane tennis dad. Remember the Danish TV program "Sandies Paradis" shown 10-10-2002. It was about the then 14-year old talented Danish tennis girl Sandie Sørensen and her parents who were pushing her tennis career? Her dad was her coach and during the TV program he sent her to a Spanish tennis academy south of Barcelona when she was 11 years old, where she was the youngest pupil. And after this she only saw her parents and two younger brothers every 6 months. Once when Sandie 12 years old and home visiting her parents she ran away from home and the police started searching after her and TV asked people to look for her. She was found shortly after again.
This TV program was shown before Wozniack became known, and to this day many danes still think that this TV program was about Caroline and her parents, becuase they forgot the names from the TV program and just rember it was about a talented youg Danish girl. And Sandie is 21 years old today, so only a couple of years older than Caroline.
Sandie's dad Tonny Nørregaard Sørensen was put in prison last year for trying to hire two assasins to kill his ex-wife Anette Bendix Sørensen (Sandie's mom) and her new lover: http://www.bt.dk/krimi/kendt-dansk-tennis-far-bestilte-lejemord-paa-konen-og-hendes-elsker

In October 2009 TV2 made an follow-up program on Sandie and what happened to her tennis career.
Husker du Sandie? http://sporten-dyn.tv2.dk/tennis/article.php/id-26095403.html
Sandie tennis career got ruined by a back injury when she was 16 years old, but she still plays some at a national level in Denmark: http://www.dtftennis.dk/Home/Sektioner/Turnering/Ranglister/Resultatsoegning.aspx?licens=1173
She is currently ranked #100 in Denmark: http://www.dtftennis.dk/Sektioner/Turnering/Ranglister/FSenior.aspx?s=2
