And that is why you never gain new/other insights on tennis.

I am always interested in someone else's point of view. I may not always agree with their opinion on the facts, but at least you are not stuck in your own bubble/echo chamber. Reading different opinions with the attention that they deserve, is always a challenge to your own points of view :-). The voice that tells you "Maria will dominate", in probably the echo of your own voice in a lonely room.

I agree with a lot that Rex said on Coru, though I see some other players that have worked on their weaknesses to some extent: Halep is the first one that comes to mind, and imo, Svitolina also worked on becoming a different player over the years.

Hope she's paying attention to what's happening with Zverev and Osaka.

Osaka is being sued by her former coach.

Confusing. She did refer to Sascha as her 'hitting partner', so it's unclear who was what when.

A lot of hybrid roles, including personal. Zverev seems more shaken by the fact that he considered the agent a friend.
