My guess would be (without knowing the new coach or his teaching philosophy) that he is looking to develop your daughters hand skill ("tuning the hand" as they refer to it in Spain). By helping her develop slice, drop shots etc, he will likely be helping her understand racquet face control and developing her feel for the ball - this will undoubtedly help her improve her current game style.

At least that's what I would be trying to do.

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get from the work you didn't do...
