Re: The Changing of the Guard

Peter Lundgren is now coaching Marcos Baghdatis.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

The same could be said for Safin back in the time and the cooperation with Lundgren resulted in AO 05 title, so good for Marcos.

Marcos doesn't have Safin talent...for that matter no one does.

Probably, but I like Marcos and its good news to see him work with someone that might bring the best out of him. Lundgren certainly seems to have a knack for it.

If it doesn't workout I know they both enjoy a good pizza.

Here's to hoping they do both. In any case, nothing to see until after Toronto

Re: The Changing of the Guard

So the Nadal Era commences on Aug. 18, 2008. I'm looking forward to seeing what the baby balls have in store for us.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The Changing of the Guard

This is about the coaching carousel Tangy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Tsk! I was wondering why you guys were going off topic talking about coaches when Nadal's impending coronation is far more important.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ...

The way Marcos is, he might be lucky if he plays at the US Open, this does depend on how his wrist injury is.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
