    Smile Does this sound OK in English

    Hi, dear experts. Could you tell if the following sounds OK in English:

    "I don't need to ask her any more questions because I know her and I have no doubts as to her doing great in Coventry."

    I'm not going to ask her any more questions as I know her quite well and have no doubt about her doing great in Coventry. (How about like this?)

    "I don't need to ask her any more questions because I know her, and I have no doubts as to her doing great in Coventry."

    The sentence is fine. One possibility is to add the comma, but the sentence would be fine without it.

    "...doing well in Coventry." if you are writing to someone in the UK.
