Sascha Bajin to collaborate with Maldenovic

:confused:!

I don't think that Mladenovic is a kind of player who's looking to be No.1, not the same personality & quality of Wozniacki & Osaka.

But after defeating Osaka in Dubai, she talked about her work on her serve, so maybe she's aiming high... Pushed by her boyfriend #Theim :giggle:.

And I was hoping teaming up with Daria Kasatkina:cautious:! Or with...

Had hoped he'd go for coachless Halep.

According to various sources on Twitter (and I don't claim reliability so take with a huge grain of salt), there's no permanent arrangement with Kiki, and Sascha is in dealings with multiple players. That is to say, he's in demand.

Would be really interesting if he takes another raw talent to the top.

WTF. Out of all the tennis players with immense potential or incredible female players he chooses the incredibly nasty and inconsistent Mladenovic?

Yikes.

You make it seem beyond question all the other players would choose him.

What has Mladenovic done that makes her nasty? Genuinely curious.

Also, I think Osaka is a goof, but I also think that Bajin is a complete goof too. Just look at his Twitter.

Didn't someone here report he was working with Venus as a head coach? I would rather see him with an upcoming player so this is better news if true.

Is there any evidence he's a coach? He was hitting partner for SW and Osaka belittled his "coaching" so is he actually a coach? I guess we'll find out if he's still "coaching" in a few years . . .

In an interview, Mladenovic denied he became her coach. Said they were friends and knew each at least since he was with Serena, and that if there were anything official, they would've announced it. Oh, and she doesn't see anything blatantly wrong with her results at the moment. Wasn't feeling well today, made to many mistakes, but doesn't mean she doesn't feel her tennis at all... As usual from her.

Was going to tag @Aussie Darcy as soon as I saw the thread title lol.

If he is helping in an official capacity, this is a big financial outlay for Mladenovic. Maybe it is just for the Open?

As @Tennis_Hands said, expect Mladenovic to return to a much higher level under his mentorship.

She was a good player previously, and if anyone can get her back on track, it's Bajin.

Supposedly hes just a family friend of Mladenovic.

Apparently he stopped by for a chat during practice with Tamaki Osaka, Naomi's mum, as well. Maybe the problems behind the scenes was with Osaka's Dad.

Maybe there problem is with Naomi and Bajin.
But why is Bajin still out of a job tho? He legit spend a month or two with his family back in Germany.

It would be hilarious if Mladenovic wins next major def. Osaka in the final :laughing:. It seems to me that Bajin likes challenges.(y)

Sale is a great coach (as he has proven many times) and if someone can help her to battle the demons, I'm quite positive it's him. Good luck to both.
