^ Haha, wtf, it's possible to have a close relationship without sucking each other's cocks . . . !
It's a job you wake up to every single day and invest in physically, mentally, and emotionally. It's not easy to just cut it off and walk away from it.
I have to say, the best coaching relationships seem to have nothing to with coaching skills, but more to do with the 'connection' between pupil and coach: Novak and Marian, Rafa and Tio Toni, Andy and Lendl.
Brad Gilbert's different, but I have my own theories on his 'success' as a coach, which I can't say on here.
I wasn't talking about sex, I was talking about LOVE. It is obvious reading this article Galo Blanco was in love and totally 100% devoted to Milos Raonic.
It is obvious reading Galo's comments he was in LOVE with Milos and he's devastated that they broke up.
I don't know why people don't realize there are probably numerous gay relationships between a tennis player and a coach on the ATP Tour? Do you really think everyone is straight?
I get that a coaching and pupil relationship is close, but from reading this article and reading Galo's words they weren't just friends they were something more, something romantic they were in LOVE WITH EACH OTHER.
