Yet another coaching change

Following the rumor about Shahar Peer and the news about Tatiana Golovin is the announcement by Michael Chang that he will no longer coach Peng Shuai. Chang says that he does not have time to travel with Peng to all of the tour events, which was what the Chinese Tennis Association wanted him to do.

There is also obvious friction between Chang and the CTA over his rejected attempts to help Chinese tennis players prepare for the Olympics.

Peng, who plays Monica Seles-style two-handed tennis, is a gifted player who has, in my opinion, never played up to her potential. Here's hoping she gets the guidance she needs to improve her game and develop some consistency.
