    Now this is hard...I think you're going to have to guess.

    When asked by Kournikova's "people" if he thought he could "fix" her serve, this world famous coach declared "If I couldn't help her in an hour, I'll retire!"

    I would say Nick B. Brad Gilbert is not known to be a technician. Paul Annacone is way to modest & humble to say that......

    Again...I couldn't expect anyone to know this.....

    If Kournikova had taken him up....he might also have taught her to use her "hawnds" properly...and shown her how to avoid a "fuzz sandwich"....

    She was already famous so I suppose his offer to "make you famous by Friday" wasn't to tempting.

    Good guesses....but it was actually Vic Braden. I didn't expect anyone to know because he told me that story in person. He added that he could tell just by looking at her that she "hasn't got a clue what she's doing on the serve!". lol
