Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer (and now hires Darren Cahill)

This morning Fernando González announced that he had ended the work with his coach, Martín Rodríguez, and his Physical Trainer, Carlos Burgos. He said it was "the end of a cycle".

He's now looking for a new coach, anyone here wanna send his/her CV?

I'd give it a shot. Here would be my plan for Gonzo:

Plan A: Hit hard

Plan B: Hit harder

I'm also available to coach Blake, Gulbis, and Tursunov.

probably Martin and Carlitos get tired of this Gonzo's no-care mode in 2010...

Re: Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer

Was he just waiting for Todd Martin to become available?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer

i wouldnt care so much if he didnt have some points to defend coming up, who knows why he decided to do it now but it seems like a weird time to do it...

[Gonzalez][Del Potro][Verdasco][Monaco][Ferrer]
[Nadal][Zeballos][Wawrinka][Tsonga][Lopez]
[Zabaleta][Dolgopolov][Monfils][Chela][Robredo]

I was in the locker room...Doing some bad things. I cannot tell you....JUAN MARTIN DEL POTRO [champion]

González hired Cahill but only to do part time coaching job apparently. We'll see how it goes...

Re: Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer (and now hires Darren Cahill)

isn't Cahill a member of the Adidas coaching team along with Gil Reyes and other people? maybe it's not like Gonzo actually hired the guy but he's using the Adidas people

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

I dunno. The article I read used the word 'hired'.

Re: Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer (and now hires Darren Cahill)

Doubt it will make a major difference. Maybe a burst of resurgence like what happened with Stefanki, that fades after a while. Gonzo has a pretty much defined game.

Re: Gonzo dumps his coach and physical trainer (and now hires Darren Cahill)

From Gonzo himself:

Hi friends,

I want to announce that I will begin to work with australian Darren Cahill, a coach that got a lot of results with Agassi and Hewitt at their best moments and in different years. It won’t be full time because of his obligations but I trust he will help my agresive tennis with the best tactical moves of the australian school.

Currently I’m in Chile working with pysichal trainer Ricardo Lara, that is a member of the chilean Davis Cup team."
