As for bring on a consultant we have a place in Bradenton that he attends and when he is there we work with one of the top coaches at least 2 to 3 times a week and his staff but as for here in Ca there is only one other coach I trust !
I really did not see that from him when he played Peliwo. Maybe he wasn't confident playing the best player in the field, a much older player. What I saw from him was typical of a top junior. Hit hard in spots, make every ball, play offense sometimes. No clear consistent pattern of attack and game plan to win the match. Like I say all the time to my kids: your are not playing tennis you are hitting a ball back and forth. Tennis means thinking, tactics, strategy, and most important- adjustments. By the time my players adjust- they have already lost the match. He needs a clear concise pro level game plan for every match.
