Will Severin Luthi be regarded as a very respected coach after Federer's retirement?

it always felt as if he's never got much respect. even most federer fans say that federer keeps him around mostly because they're friends. then when annacone arrived most of them were happy because a great coach would help federer and find him find the way to success, something that luthi hadn't been able to achieve to the fans' standards apparently.

coupled to that, luthi is low key. unlike annacone, he doesn't do interviews, isn't on twitter and hasn't coached any big superstar before federer. in spite of the facts that federer has never publicly put one coach on top of the other (he's actually been fairly insistent on the idea that he's got 2 coaches on equal footing) or that luthi has been with federer for a much longer time, the ATP website only lists annacone as his official coach.

so what do you think, will luthi get more respect as times goes by? will he be regarded as a great coach in, say, 10 years' time, similarly to what it happened to annacone himself after he coached sampras?


A true player this luthi

Luthi on a camel


Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Luthi gets plenty of respect already - most important, from the guy he works for.

Well lemme see.

My opinion or Federer's?

I think I know the answer to that one.

Federer - Emperor of the Slams, King of Hard, Lord of the Australian Open, Lord of Wimbledon.

This thread. abraxas' enlargement of the Luthi Davis Cup pic. I tried to rep you for that but I've given out too much rep in the past 24 hours apparently.

Great thread.
