Nadia Petrova’s new coach Ricardo Sanchez has got himself into a bit of trouble earlier this morning at the Toray Pan Pacific in Tokyo. In this story broken via dropshotdispatch and then picked up at deadspin, Sanchez came out on to the court to give offer advice to Nadia who was playing Sam Stosur in the semifinals. But during his visit Sanchez apparently forgot that under the allowances of on-court coaching, coaches are mic’d up.
What followed was a clear F-Bomb from Sanchez, but it’s intent remains uncertain. Was it, “we need to find out if we have luck in this f’ing bitch” or was it “we need to find out if we have luck against this f’ing bitch”. Or something else. It’s a big difference and without further explanation it’s hard to tell. But what isn’t is next time Sanchez comes out on the court he’ll likely be much more careful with his language.
After having a laugh once he realized he was mic’d up, Sanchez’s pottyish pep talked worked in the end. Petrova went on to beat Stosur 64, 62 to reach the final final where she’ll play Agnieszka Radwanska for the title tonight.
