    The most expensive coaching I’ve ever heard of was $400 an hour from Gilad Bloom and same number from Rick Macci. All good coaches say the same thing, racquet back early, bend your knees more, weight transfer, accelerate through the ball, watch the point of contact, brush the ball and lift it, get your body set earlier, follow through, quicker feet, find the sweet spot. There, you just a got a free tennis lesson, sorry to take some of your business Patrick and Rick )

    On the coaching theme – Emma R bt Linette SS in Korea, not a great match, Magda looked a bit tired, but I’ve been impressed with improvements in Emma’s serving – is this Tursunov ? They seem to suit each other so let’s hope this one sticks. Also Emma’s understated response to winning. Wasn’t an occasion for the fake theatrics we see.

    Catherine, winning a 2R in Korea is like a practice set for a Grand Slam champion. I’m sure Tursunov will reignite Raducanu to play her best again.

    She played some points pretty well, moved smoothly, looks as if she’s on the way but will meet Ostapenko next. Could be tough. Penko will be motivated.

    More interested in the Raducanu vs Ostapenko match than anything in Laver Cup. Emma in three.

    It did go to 3 but unfortunately Emma took an off-court MTO and then retired in the 3rd. She didn’t show any injury so possibly she was ill. I’d say nevertheless she played better overall in Seoul than we’ve seen for a while so let’s hope she soon gets over whatever it is. Did we ever hear what was bothering Naomi in Tokyo ? I’m having doubts about her future, at least in the short term.

    Catherine, Though I did not see any of the match, reasonably sure Ostapenko was super motivated to send a hardcore message to little miss britches. sounds like a good match where she just fell short again. Good signs from Raducanu that she is fighting well and trusting the process with Tursunov.

    Recent comment says a glute injury. I think Emma will continue getting odd injuries until her body toughens. She looked pretty downcast but she should feel satisfied about her level of play. Maybe a new physio ? From what I saw of the match Penko was good but not supersonic.

  • Scoop Malinowski · September 24, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Catherine, you know I don’t buy any injury, after Wally Masur said most injuries are fabricated by players to protect their ego. Federer mentioned he was happy just to complete the match yesterday and that his back survived, no mention of this phantom knee problem, guess he forget all about it ) He was moving fine, he’s just not the same player anymore, the aura is gone, he’s lost the mojo. The knee was just a cover IMO. That he didn’t mention the knee yesterday and he did mention his back exposed it. Emma will continue to mention these little nagging pains as long as she keeps losing IMO.

    Well, tit-for-tat ? Penko loses the the final to Alexandrovna 0-6 final set after ‘injuring’ her foot. Maybe she caught the injury bug from Emma.

  • catherine · September 25, 2022 at 5:16 am

    Injuries or ‘injuries’, there seem a lot of them on the WTA tour. Are women players skipping the fitness routines ? If I were organising the Seoul event I’d be a little irritated that one sf and then the final were both rendered meaningless, more or less, although I think Penko would have lost anyway.

  • Scoop Malinowski · September 25, 2022 at 8:07 am

    Catherine, no all the players are all fitness fanatics, at the tournaments you see them all doing all these different warm ups and exercises and stretches, one player told me wanna be fitness coaches watch what fitness coaches do and then copy it and call themselves fitness coaches. The players do so much hard training they may be overtraining. I think that’s what happened to Leylah F, I saw her videos pulling weights and jumping on concrete and bango, she hurt her foot. I think it was too much work under that respected fitness coach Duglas Cordero.

    Catherine, as Pete said “Nobody remembers who won Philadelphia…” Nobody remembers who won Korea…
