Today I went off site on the clay courts with Caroline Wozniacki and her team. Since most of the players will start playing clay court tournaments, we looked for courts in Key Biscayne. Caroline was working on getting used to sliding again. My colleague Sven Groeneveld did some exercises with her. We had two sessions with her. Doing drills, hitting lots of balls, 2 on 1s with Jean Rene Lisnard and me.
Movement on clay is very important, and the better you move the better you get in position to hit a good shot. Therefore it’s crucial to work on this important part of your game.
While the players are practicing and getting ready for their next round matches, behind the scenes everyone is getting ready for the expansion of the venue! The work will begin Monday, March 18, right after the finals on Sunday.
A new Stadium 2 court and four additional practice courts will be built, and I think everyone is looking forward to come back next year!
The project is supported by the players of course! For more information click in the link go to the BNP Paribas Open website.
