Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

How Lundgren became Federer coach:
Peter Carter, Federer's coach during his formative years, didn't want to travel. He was also not experienced as a pro. So, Peter Carter suggested Lundgren, his friend to coach Federer. Roger Federer, use to admire Rios's style of play. He is quoted saying him as the player he likes to watch.In return for that, Federer, made Peter Carter Swiss DC captain.

I have read in a Federer's interview, that Lundberg has regretted later in his career about wasting away his prime years in drinking and partying. He used that as a experience in his coaching these talented surly guys

I have read somewhere that Lundgren has coached Vincent Spadea. I am not so sure about it. Also anyone has a timeline on when he coached who?

great thread, btw..
