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.

Interesting that Tiafoe has a South African coach...

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.

Didn't know Stepanek is coaching Sebi Korda, or that Petr Korda coached Stepanek for a long time. Sebi says Stepanek's like a big brother to him.

You know? I think that is a very good choice. Stepanek won a lot of matches he had no business winning, and he has a very good tennis sense around the entire court. Especially at the net; he was underrated there (well, he was underrated everywhere).
I think he might help Sebi improve the little bit he needs to make it top 25 on a permanent basis.

Just last year, I saw Nigel Sears on a practice court coaching Cirstea on how and when to 'fist pump'...

There was the time a few years ago that Cirstea asked the chair umpire to give her own coach a warning because she felt that he was talking and gesturing to her too much (she didn't seem to realize that if a warning was given, it would penalize HER, not her coach). See below.

Thomas Johansson is a good guy. Very quiet and mild mannered.
I can only wish him good luck with this one, and say that I hope he doesn't last long. There have got to be better gigs available.

R.I.P. Amal...
