It's one of those crummy translations, but it's very interesting:

Melanie does not sound too optimistic about her daughter's tennis future! <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

It will be up to Martina to prove her Mom is wrong. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce.gif" border="0">
Well it's a very bad translation, I didn't quite understand everything <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> ...
What I understood, however, is that name "Anna" was not mentioned. I think that the rumour of Anna coached by Moiltor can be considered discarded.
Josh: I was told:

"zuruckshauen" = looking back
"lockerheit" = relaxation

it helps a LITTLE! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

ys: Not necessarily. Melanie says she wants to keep working in tennis, so coaching is one way she could do so. Also, the interview was on a Martina fan site, so it's really focused on Martina.
Well, I don't know if it is the translation, but Melanie comes off as a rigid person. She says about the players, including Hingis, that it is not really about talent, but hardwork. I read somewhere in an interview where Martina said her mother was always criticizing her (It was in one of the tennis magazines online, where she was talking about what contributed to the fallout between her and her mother). As Melanie said, Hingis is much looser than she is, and I do not disbelieve her.
