Re: Who is the best coach among all the current ATP players' coaches?

Surprised not to see Larry Stefanki (coached McEnroe, Kafelnikov, Roddick, Rios, Henman and Fernando Gonzalaz) or Tony Roche (coached Lendl, Rafter, Federer and Hewitt). Both would probably feature if I was asked to pick the top 3 coaches. Roger Rasheed (Hewitt and Monfils) is also absent from the list.

An interesting question though. On the face of it Lundgren would appear to be very successful having coached both Federer and Safin but they were already two extremely talented players who perhaps needed more 'mental' coaching. Moreover, Federer embarked on his extraordinary streak of dominance just as he parted with Lundgren.

I think Marian Vajda works well for Djokovic, same goes for Eduard Davydenko coaching his younger brother and of course Toni Nadal works well with his nephew. I'm not quite sure how they would fare with other players.

Miles Maclagan also seems to get on very well with Murray but I wonder if this particular partnership has exhausted all that it can offer. All credit to Maclagan for helping Murray to get to where he is but perhaps the style of tennis he is developing is inhibiting Murray from finding the extra gear that might take him to the top.

I would be very interested to see how Del Potro is able to develop in the next couple of years before passing judgement on Marcelo Gomez. Likewise I also look forward to seeing how Cilic's game matures under Bob Brett. Having said that, Brett is one of the most experienced in the business (worked with Becker, Medvedev, Ivanisevic and Ancic) and has a proven track record.

Finally I'd like to give some credit to Magnus Norman. Probably not the best coach out there, but he has done a great job with Soderling both in the physical and mental department and has allowed him to fully achieve his potential.

Re: Who is the best coach among all the current ATP players' coaches?

only experienced coaches who have coached several players should get a note as the hardest point is to be able to adapt several different players : only Brett and in a lesser extent Lundgren (maybe Gomez as I don't knoiw him ), are concerned in that list.

Stefanki would surely deserve a note

With that list, this thread is nonsense imo

useless old guy
