Ana's trial run with Greasy is over and she's kicked him to the curb. Apparently he tried to add to her game and thought she had lost too much weight.
Never, ever, comment on a woman's weight, Grease. That's, like, the rules of feminism. Also, don't walk around in RF t-shirts. That's, like, the rules of not looking like an idiot.
I'm totally "meh" on the whole thing. I wasn't all that enamoured with the hiring in the first place and to the extent he was trying to fiddle with Ana's game, me no likee. I'm not saying her game doesn't need fiddling, it does. But not right now. Right now she just needs to keep it simple (PLAY STUPID) and knowing what we know about her mind (STOP THINKING!!!) it's best to just let her see the ball, hit the ball. That's why I thought Heinz did such a great job last year. It waasn't about turning her into an all-around player or adding tactics and elements to her game to make her "the perfect tennis player". It was just about see the ball, hit the ball. In my opinion, that's what she needs right now. Just to get back to where she has the confidence to play freely and instinctively.
I don't know. Maybe Moose will listen to all idiots (read: pundits) and fire Judy and Ana can pick her up off the wire. Maybe she wins without a coach. Maybe she goes on a two month losing spree. But the kid needs a team she can trust and it didn't sound like Greasy was in the trust tree. So regardless of whether he's a good coach or not, out you go. She's got enough reasons to doubt herself. She doesn't need someone else adding to the pile, too.
