Anke without coach in London




Anke Huber is going alone. The top ranked German player came without  coach Boris Breskvar to Wimbledon. 26 year old Anke says " also privately I am single " after her second round victory against Marlene Weingartner.  One regards it to glad nature of Baden: I want fun - and it is fun. Also solo. Anke is alone in London. According to " a few diversities of opinion " with Breskvar she decided for a pause for thought, for a " coach time-out ". " does me well, if I travel sometimes for a few weeks alone '. I need a break, I sometimes am like ", explain the Karlsdorferin. Still it is not certain whether the years long and successful co-operation with Breskvar continues. " for the moment I feel probably in such a way, afterwards we continue to see. " Not for the first time earlier world rank list fourth (October/November 1996) separated from its promoter and coach. Only since February 2000, after the Australian open, the professional partnership with the 57 years old Slovene was resurrected.   At Wimbledon Anke wants to emerge in the fourth round. As in the previous year, before it threw the x-width unit violation with the US open for months from the course. " target I set for myself was the fourth round, but... "   Russian Elena Dementieva is the third round hurdle.  A solvable function? " I can beat her. I can make chances, but  I must play better than today ",despite the clear 7:5, 6:1 against Weingartner. Already Huber has been to the fourth round 3 times  (1993, 1995, 2000).  " wants to play well with the important, large tournaments ", particularly with the Grand Slams: " now I begin again from the front for the fifth or sixth time, there look I not on the rank list. " In Wimbledon she rented a house this time with its friend and doubles partner Barbara Schett. Because with the one year younger " Babsi", understands it in the best way, privately and on the tennis court. Also out early in the doubles competition of this year the nothing will modify. On the day after " Babsi " had already played: If she loses in the second round match, then Anke is really quite alone in London.
