[quote user="Mashafan124"]Well, it's not like Maria's gonna read this forum, right? She reminds me of Federer on the women's side. Too stubborn to change anything about her game and her serve even when she knows it's not helping her get back to the player that she was, and changes need to be made.[/quote]
Federer's main problem is the fact that he has won everything there is to win: and Nadal. MARIA HAS NOT DEVELOPED HER GAME much since 2004, and she is a scalp to take for also-rans who step up their game against her.I am fed up with looking at the new earrings/mobile phones/necklaces she advertises, sorry. And I wonder what her coach is doing. WHO IS HE/SHE??
If you were her coach, what advice would you give her about her service motion, her groundstrokes. How she cam improve her image by the 2011 season?
The First thing there needs to be done is to adjust her toss, and i mean throw the ball lower. She's tossing the ball too frickin' high and it looks like she wants to play tennis with Jesus.
I think Maria is in desperate need of Yuri! I don't think she should (or ever will) sack Michael Joyce, but I think she needs to get Yuri back as her coach and maybe Joyce could become her hitting partner, or maybe Yuri and Joyce could work together. All I know is that she needs an additional person added to her team, either that or Joyce needs to start doing a better job with her. [:S] Sorry to say that cos I really like Michael, he's a really nice guy but I just think he could be doing a better job.
[quote user="CROUCHING TIGER"]I don't agree with that, crazy. This IS the official "Sharapova-site" and it's forum after all. It's obvious Masha is still not "back", has "serve-shoulder"-problems and mentally under "pressure". Nothing more normal the ppl who are here to support her talk, discuss and come foreward with some "solutitions". That's the reason of the existence of this forum, no?[/quote]
I get ya Tiger. Not my intention to keep people from talking or discussing in THEIR forum. The thing that makes me nervous is this kind of advices, Maria should do this Maria should do that, Joyce should be fired, Yuri should come back. Maria has a problem. She's just kicked out of Bejing in round 2. She hardly can pass three rounds in most tournaments. If she really wants to get back to her tennis, she will find a way to fix it. All advices coming from different forums by experts-amateurs are just background noise.
There are always ups and downs! She has to cool down and then to think over, what change she should try! She is still young enough and will learn from her mistakes! There is no reason to think to much about!
She needs more experience u mean? Learn more? But from whom?[:D]
