Osaka splits from coach

"If any of Kvitova, Halep, Svitolina win Miami, they will be #1 (unless maybe Osaka goes deep). "

I did not see Serena mentioned in the list of people going deep or being able to be no1. What is her current ranking and the highest she could climb after Miami?

Any normal person will understand that conversations normally flows into more than one topic or person. Osaka does not only play against the wall does she? If we had to talk only about Osaka, what a boring conversation that would be.

Remaining on the topic of Osaka... was Serena not the one who referred Osaka's previous winning coach to her which she eventually just labelled a "hitting partner"?

Besides, Serena is still a better player than Osaka - by far.

she barely plays any tournaments so is ranked around low teens iirc? I can check exactly, but she's nowhere near the top 5

Makes me wonder sometimes, if all these "stay on topic" people are coders or something where you can control parameters, etc., that don't really get how things work in the real world.

Nor do they understand that you can ignore a thread if it no longer/never interests you.
 
Honestly this could go down as one of the biggest blunders ever in tennis. Firing a coach you just won two consecutive slams with is just plain dumb.

Reminds me of when Rios got to #1 and then immediately dumped his coach, although it's even worse than that.
 
But last year when Sacha was still with her, she went out early in Miami, Madrid, Montreal, Cincy, Rome, Washington, Charleston, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. I still don't get what you're trying to say.
Are you comparing her to the player she used to be or the player he helped her to become?

If youre judging her on the player she use to be, then thats a damning comparison.

Youre basically highlighting that she used to be poor and now shes back to being poor - just like before.
 
I'm going to wait and see at least half a year and see what the new coach brings.
This is an interesting point. New coaches bring in new methods and perhaps atmosphere too. Should they tamper with what they've got when they have a great product (athlete) or should they just go with what they have and further build on it is something to look at. I was Osaka's big fan prior to her questionable (mouthy) decision to split with the person who practically built her success.

I'm not judging anyone here. I'm just trying to figure out how someone goes from winning the Aussie Open and then 2 months later is considered being a "poor player" just because she no longer has a coach. Does this mean without Baijin, she'll no longer win anymore tournaments?

Dosen't everyone have peaks and valleys?

Time will tell if thats the case. Sometimes certain partnerships work for whatever reason.

A perfect example is when Bouchard reached a career best world number 5 in October 2014, she sacked her coach in November 2014. We all know the rest.

Marcelo Rios sacked his coach shortly after becoming world number 1 because he wanted to go in a different direction. He did...

I would add Roddick to that dubious list. Shortly after winning his 1st Slam and becoming world #1 he sacked his coach, Brad Gilbert. He never achieved either of those things again.

A rare exception to this is, of course, Federer who also sacked his coach, Peter Lundgren, after he won his first Slam, his first WTF and first became #1. He got away with it because he's Federer. Different rules always apply to him. :cool:

Absolute arrogance if you ask me.
 
Wheres your evidence hes being racist. Be careful before you throw slurs out like confetti. You cant even decide what hes being racist towards Hiatians or Japanese which means youre just projecting your own prejudice.

Your basically saying "youre being racist but dont know towards what group". If you dont know how can you make an accusation.


@NuBas has absolutely no argument for racism and I reported his post to admin.

There has to be some accountability and I hope he/she is banned permanently.

Race had nothing to do with my post in any way.

I have no issue with Japanese or Hatian people at all. I actually quite enjoy Japanese art/culture and minored in EALC in college.

People that scream racism for no reason really disgust me. They are among the lowest of the low.

I think that Clijsters parted ways with her coach shortly after she won USO for the first time.

:cool:
 
Saw the press conference on tv...she was very condescending toward Bajin...giggling and belittling him as I remember. Look up some pressers and I'm sure you'll find it. Maybe its the one where she said something like having fun was more important than winning or whatever.
I saw her say her happiness was more important than winning. No giggling or bellittling, serious and rather subdued. She also acknowledged Bajins contribution. So I think you remember wrong.
