Who will be Roger's next coach?

Will he stick to Australians or will he go with someone else?

(That should be Thomas Muster, sorry).

Rafa=Fedkilla will be his next coach, I can see it already.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Re: Who will be Roger's next coach?

It's not an option, but I think he should go coachless or get a motivational speaker instead. I don't think his problems are in his strategy or in his game, but in his head.

It depends on what kind of coach Roger is looking for. Does he want to work the whole year with someone or only for the preparation for the claycourt tournaments and the matches against Rafa?

Maybe he has realised now that it was wrong to focus so strong on the rivalry with Nadal and the clay season and wants to go back to his natural game which has brought him to 10 GS.

Re: Who will be Roger's next coach?

He doesn't need coach. Tony Roche was not very useful.
But maybe Sampras could make him understand he should try to be more present at the net against Nadal.

"A la base, nous les Français, sommes les champions du monde des râleurs. J'ai l'impression qu'être français, c'est un peu un handicap pour être le meilleur dans ton sport.
Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".

Guy Forget

Re: Who will be Roger's next coach?

Taking into consideration how well he manages being alone and being his own coach, I would say Bjorn Borg. He could help him win RG without intruding too much on his style. Ok, just an spontaneous idea.

Para siempre Rafa

1 Olympic Gold
18 Masters 1000

Well Bjorn certainly does nee the money! Didnt he have to sell one of his Wimbledon trophies to pay off debt last year?
