Changing gears, I didn't realize that Sara Sorribes Tormo was coached by Silvia Soler Espinosa. I've watched a decent number of her matches, but since that one tournament in Mexico where she did good and the screaming got seriously out of control and she's continued it to a certain extent, I definitely have to go mute when watching her sometimes, so maybe it's mentioned often by commentators and I just miss it.

I'm interested to see. Wonder if he thinks she really still has the potential to be a top player and challenge for Slams.

Indeed. If you are a coach, you have to be out there coaching. Otherwise, how do you make money?

In Sascha's case, he would do it by trading on Serena's name...

He says he does nothing but work. Doesn’t have friends, doesn’t go out. I bet he has enough money socked away from the Serena days to wait for the right opportunity. Maybe he really likes Yastremska - like, is on good terms, has fond feelings - and wanted to help her. Wanted to be in NY this week anyway. Money doesn’t hurt. Who knows.

I think Ferreira has been a great choice for Tiafoe. He has improved his on court attitude a lot.

As long as Frances doesn't decide to duplicate Ferreira's serve... Agreed. He's done a lot of good for Frances. I'm also thrilled that Frances went outside of what historically has been the usual U.S. tennis coaching model.
