After a spectacular 2003 in which he cracked the Top Ten world rankings for tennis players, Thai tennis star Paradorn Srichaphan slipped badly in 2004, falling all the way to number 26.
So, what's wrong with Paradorn?
Why is he falling into the second, or even third tier of tennis players instead of making a run at guys like Federer and Roddick? Does he just not have the talent? Is something missing from his game? If so, what is it?
Or has the time finally come to dump Dad as coach and hire a coach with a proven track record of helping a player become a Number 1?
News reports a couple of weeks ago said Paradorn was trying out a foreign coach for a couple of months, but hadn't decided whether it would be permanent.
What should he do?
Personally, while Paradorn's father Charnchai has done an incredible job in bringing his son this far, I think it's time to bring in someone who knows how to take him to the next level.
