Speaking of Tursanov… Big Sascha has publicly said he’s interested. And not at all bothered by all the coaching changes.

If you change coaches that fast, you are not being coached. You are having a brief conversation.
Very odd approach.

Come on, people... All this talk about Emma's coaches constantly being 'fired' is pure gossip. There's no way that these coaches are 'fired' in the sense of being surprised by it. If that were the case, no-one would bite.
It is surely done in some kind of amicable manner - perhaps even via mutual agreement...

Sascha isn't coaching anyone right now though, correct? Because seems like it's one thing to not be coaching someone and then take her on for a few weeks and then get a real contract with another player and quite the other to leave a coaching relationship thinking this one will last for a bit and getting ditched after a few weeks despite good results.

This stint with Tursunov, if true, shows how little structure there is to these decisions in Emma's camp. It's not like 6 weeks or 3 months or the summer hardcourt season or something more concrete and planned. It seems like quite the scatterbrain approach.

Sascha isn't coaching anyone right now. Yes, that's an apples to oranges situation, unless the existing coaching relationship was already fraying. I don't think the Tursunov think is confirmed. Just a rumor, although a credible one.

half serious/half jerky/half idiot question (yes, 3/2 question, because it is me). Who is more spoiled: Shapo or Stefanos?

It's a tie.

When Youhzny came aboard the first time, it made a significant positive difference for Denis.
We'll see what happens this time. One thing for sure is that Denis needs something.

I think I'd go with Stefanos are the more spoiled one, but I'd say Shapo is probably more entitled. Neither is appealing.

That is a really tough question, I am leaning Shapo only because I think Stefanos tries to hide it a lot. We see right through it, but he still tries. Shapo it is right out there.

I see what you mean to a certain extent with him trying to hide it a bit more but that's strictly on court, and it's also so unsuccessful. Off court, he's openly begging for his daddy and whining about it's not fair like a spoiled brat for sure. And it still spills out on court for him at times. He has the more memorable spats with his dad in-match, whereas I feel like Shapo's got more memorable spats with umpires.
