Gilbert will not teach David how to serve well, but he's a strong mental coach and therefore would be a right choice for David. However, I doubt David will contact him. Something tells me he's not ready for radical changes yet, and he would rather choose a local coach. But I'd be happy to be wrong.
I agree with you on the coaching situation, but not about him migrating from his home
to further his career. I think that's an over-reaction to Nalbo's current bad form.
Home is where he grew up, where his family is and where he feels most comfortable. Nearly all the top players live in their own countries, and the ones that don't live in Monte Carlo for Tax reasons.
Recently he hasn't been on tour much, but he's got a packed schedule from the U.S Open onwards. He's currently going through a bad patch of form, but form is temporary and class is permanent.
