"She's already been there and done that. She was up to 30th in the world. She was playing at a high level for a year or two. Tennis is not the issue. It's mental and physical," Gooding said. "She's already proven that she could do it, and as long as she got her head back in a good place, she knew she could start winning again."
"What we want to learn from is what she did after the U.S. Open that year. She could have managed her schedule a bit better. She played too much. Got a little burned out. Did a little too many media commitments, maybe," he said. "It's not like she's the first to ever go through that. It happens a lot, where people skyrocket up and then the next year is the difficult one. Having that experience, maybe she can do things a little bit different."
