Re: The Changing of the Guard

The Gooch is working with former Aussie top 10 player Peter McNamara.

Nalbandian is working with Lobo now.

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".

Re: The Changing of the Guard

From Tennis.com:

The Change He Needs
(I would link to the original source of this item, but it’s a story written in Latvian.) According to the fan site “The Importance of Being Ernests,” Gulbis has parted with his coach, Karl-Heinz Wetter. I say, Amen, brother! It’s about time the baby-faced 20-year-old made a change. His record so far this season is 7-9, and from late 2008 through early this year, he lost 10 consecutive second-round matches. Ouch. Now, it seems, the Latvian young gun is losing in the first round (twice in his last three tournaments), yet somehow he is still managing to stay in the Top 50.

"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

From Marcos' official site:
http://www.baghdatis.com/articles/vi...ach-for-marcos

New Coach For Marcos

On the eve of Roland Garros, Marcos has begun a new partnership with coach, Eduardo Infantino.

Marcos, who has been training with former professionals Franco Squillari and Younes El Aynaoui in the past couple of weeks, will play his first tournament with Infantino at the French Open.

Infantino has previously worked with former World No. 3 David Nalbandian, who reached the Wimbledon final in 2002, and current World No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro – who had a breakthrough season in 2008 by winning four ATP World Tour titles.

Marcos’ first match under Infantino’s tutelage will be against Juan Monaco in the first round of the French Open.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Infantino also worked with Gaudio, should be an interesting partnership, though Marcos has had a lot of coaches.

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".

Re: The Changing of the Guard

It sounds at least promising.

http://ar.news.yahoo.com/s/23052009/...baghdatis.html

According to this article, Marcos is moving to Italy. He will receive training at the campus of Italian Tennis Federation in Pisa.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Goodall mentioned during the TV commentary that Todd Martin could be working with Djokovic.

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

Re: The Changing of the Guard

interesting one.

this is a good thread for those that can't be arsed checking player forums. keep up with the updates folks.

I can't really understand the mindset of some players staying with coaches for ridiculously long periods when they see the dramatic changes that a change of coach can have for some players. Norman and Soderking, Stefanki and his last 2 players for example.
Youzhny and Blake spring to mind. People might say they're just loyal but it also shows some sort of mental weakness, a kind of child-like psychological dependence or something. How could they not at least be curious as to how they'd fare in completely different circumstances?

Not that it's always beneficial. I'm sure a lot of people would've said berdych just needed a change. hasn't exactly been working out too well.

Baggy seems to be getting around lately.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

Henry, it all depends on the individual and the coach as well. Schuettler is still working with Dirk Hordoff and I don't think any other coach would have got more out of Schuettler during his career.

The coach can only do so much, if the player doesn't want to listen or prepared to change their ways, when it doesn't work. There has to be good communication between the coach/player considering how much time they spend with each other.

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

yeah it depends...

sometimes, the time built up with a coach can be irreplaceable... the coach knows the ins and outs of a players game, especially when the coach has been instrumental in the development of a player...

but once a player hops on that coach merry-go-round, yeah, then hiring a guy like stefanki, who is the master at stripping back all the bullsh!t and simplifying everything that may have clouded the players head and game from successive stints with coaches, is gonna pay dividends...

like brad gilbert said, 'all coaches have a use-by date.' for much of the time, it is true... where it isnt is when the combination works not just on a personal level, and not just a professional one as well...

Re: The Changing of the Guard

yeah, obviously depends on the individual relationship but you have to wonder about someone like Youzhny whose career seems to be in free-fall. With old Boris since he's 8 apparently.

What's the deal with Corretja/Murray now? Obviously more than just a clay-court swing thing at the moment...

Yes, Boris has been Youzhny's coach since then, at the same time it took Youzhny a while to come through, before he had those big results. I actually couldn't imagine him working with anyone else but Boris.

It's like Seppi, he could benefit from having someone who could help him with his serve, because that 2nd serve is really fucking him up and stopping the progress. But he has been with Sartori since he was 10 and his wife is his physical trainer, so that would be quite a big change.

They said Corretja will be doing some more events besides the clay, maybe just the big ones.

Linda, he didn't say anything clearly about it, just that the rumour was Todd Martin is going to work with Djokovic.

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