if that's the case, then jelena needs to work harder on her consistency of her service game and groundies....nobody could change her anticipatin/footwork so she has to rely on improving her stronger sides of the game.SM said:not really, jelena works very hard too evidenced in her slimming figure but she will never be as good a mover as justine. why? justine has better anticipation and footwork
Bovina works rigorously on her game, especially her movement this past year. She practices very hard every time I've seen her.mexicotrip said:If Bovina, Petrova, Damentieva, Kim, Dokic, Hantuchova,Eleni.....and so on....worked has hard on their a.Game (ala..serve, forehand), b.Physical Conditioning c.Mental aspect of winning matches...this would be a very different tour!
sunnysideup said:I think the point is that they all both work hard but the difference is, you could really see the fruit in Justine.
Is it possible for other players to hire the fitness trainer of Justine????
That is your opinion and you have the right to have that and it may be so that she has the best team around her, but just cause she has the best team around her doesn't mean she works the hardest.spudrsca said:Well, Justine doesn't work many hours a day, but she gives 100% in the training.
I think she has the best staff for training of the wta.
I heard that before RG, Carlos Rodriguez asked Jose-Luis Clerc a former argentinian champ to do trainings with her.
I know but it's not about quantity, it's about quality. You can't train 2-3 hours at 100%.kim&lleytonrule said:That is your opinion and you have the right to have that and it may be so that she has the best team around her, but just cause she has the best team around her doesn't mean she works the hardest.
I think anyone who makes the top 10,15 or 20 deserve to be given credit for how hard they have worked, even players who may not get that high also work incredibly hard and give 100% in training to, Daniela for example continues to train even when it starts to rain and is as windy as all hell
I'm not saying henin doesn't work hard, but all the other players work hard to. Capriati has won 3 GS's and been 1 so to say working with her Dad isn't best is a big callspudrsca said:I know but it's not about quantity, it's about quality. You can't train 2-3 hours at 100%.
Look at players like Dementieva, Bartoli, Capriati. They train with their parents, I don't think it's the best for them.
Rodriguez before working with Justine has trained Dick Norman when he advances to the 1/8 final of wimbledon.
What I like about Justine is that She always try to improve her groudstrokes and her service. Look how much she has improved her forehand.
It seems to me that there are not many players who tries to improve their technics of groundstroke.
Many are just hitting balls and don't try to change their technic even if they have weaknesses.
