ROGER AND TONY ROCHE END COACHING RELATIONSHIP

Roger and Tony Roche have mutually decided to end their 2 1/2 year long part time coaching arrangement. "I thank Tony very much for his efforts over these last years, during which I appreciated the 12-15 weeks per season we would work together. I am also grateful for the sacrifice he made, traveling so far from his home in Australia and leaving his family."

Atta boy Fed, when you cant beat players ranked outside the top 50 put the blame on your coach.

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

Finally, and at just about the right time. Good luck to him
A few weeks before Roland Garros...hmmm, can this change his fortunes?

This is bullshit.

I don't see a single link to back this up. Shenanigans.

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

Next time, please post the link. It's here:

http://www.rogerfederer.com/en/roger...fm?uNewsID=550



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

It is not bullshit. Go to the Roger Federer Homepage and this message will be confirmed.

I don't know if it is a good thing.

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

I stand corrected.

Next time please include a link.

I'm surprised by this because I would have thought that Federer would have waited until after the French. They probably have a disagreement about strategy.

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

I don't think ending the relationship with Roche theis close to RG is good. Plus this way it seems lke he's blaming Roche and I don't think Roche has that much to do with the way he's playing lately

Re: Fed tells Roche to buzz off

To be honest, he was playing his best tennis back in 2004 when he didn't have a coach.
