No, Miami was not our tournament this year. Big setback off course and the first thing you ask yourself as a coach is ”What could i have done differently?”. I always take responsibility when my players are not performing to par. What i can try to do is to analyze the probable causes, talk about it, learn from it and then move on! Try to be better next time. Its no change this time around. We have to try to bounce back.
Next tournament for Stan is in Monaco on clay followed by Madrid, Rome and Geneva before French Open. Very much looking forward to get out there and compete again.
Flying back to Europe in a few days. Have a stopover in Detroit for a few days before I’m flying home on Saturday.
Will spend some time in Stockholm. Hopefully the spring is getting there in time for my homecoming. I hope to be able to take my road bike for a spin:)
*** Happy for Johan who is c/o coaching Dimitrov and Mikael who is coaching Monfils for the results so far in Miami.
*** Swedish youngster Elias Ymer was up in the 3rd set vs Delbonis but could not convert. Nice to see him playing well however.
*** Worked on my open water swimming really well in Miami. Luxury to have such great environment for outdoor training!
*** Swedish junior nationals going on at the moment. Always exciting to follow the results for our players at Good to Great Tennis Academy.
All the best and thanks for the support in good and bad times,

I’ ve been wondering which would be your words after Miami and well, here they are earlier than expected. Good.
You say that you always take responsibility in your players’ lame performances; but then again I suppose that sometimes there must be circumstances that go beyond your reach. Right?
Anyway, glad to learn that someone from GTG is working on Grigor with my compatriot Franco Davin. Hope the shared experience will be good for you all. Yesterday it was.
So; no more for today! All the best and safe tríp home. Cecilia
Thanks for your support Cecilia!
