Re: The Changing of the Guard-Coaching Changes

Francisco Fogues is working with Andreev, not working as well as Pistolesi/Berrer.

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".

Wawrinka splits from his coach Peter Lundgren

Translation from an article:

Wawrinka splits from his coach

Dimitri Zavialoff and Stanislas Wawrinka will go different ways now.

Stanislas Wawrinka is looking for a new coach. Five days after his 1st round loss in Wimbledon against Dennis Istomin Switzerlands #2 and coach Dimitri Zavialoff split.

A long partnerships ends

Wawrinka worked with Zavialoff since he was 8 years old. "I'm grateful for all the hard work which he invested in me. He was responsible that I won the Junios tournament in Roland Garros and 2 ATP titles (Umag 2006 and Casablanca 2010) and managed to reach the Top 10 in the rankings. He played the central role in my career and I'm very grateful for this."

Reason for the split is not known

Reasons for the split during the season weren't named by Wawrinka, but one of it was probably that the 25years old lately stagnated. He didn't managed to return back to the Top 10 in 2009 and after the first half of this season and the 1st round loss in Wimbledon the tendency is not looking promising despite the 2nd tournament victory in April in Marocco. Already one year ago media advised Wawrinka to split from Zavialoff.

It's not known when Stanislas Wawrinka can present his new coach. His next tournaments will be the Masters-1000-Events in Toronto (from 9th August) and Cincinnati (16th August). He is going to miss the Swiss Open in Gstaad this summer for the first time.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Zavialoff

Of course it's not easy to decide to split with your coach when you have been together for so many years. It has to be seen what a new coach can do for Stan, but he is young enough and has many years on the tour ahead of him and so hopefully he made the right decision.

It will be interesting who he is going to work with now.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Zavialoff

It's always surprising when someone splits with a coach after with whom he's worked for a long, long time, like James Blake did last year. But unlike Blake, Stan is still relatively young, so this switch could pay off.

I hope it works out for him. He's definitely worthy of a top 15 ranking at least.

So true...hopefully it's a good move for Stan.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Zavialoff

Must have been a tough decision for Stan da man but I'm sure it will work out for the best. There are many things one can learn from a new coach, esp. when you've only been with only one for your whole career.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Zavialoff

I must confess that despite Stan achieving below his potential as of late, I didn't forsee this happening. They've worked with each other for a long time and I'm sure they will remain on amicable terms.

The change in coaching setup should yield positive results though. Wawrinka has looked lacklustre despite having the talent to consistently feature among the world's most highly ranked 16 players.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Zavialoff

He needs a coach particularly skilled in the mental aspect of the game.
I don't know if this was a decision he was considering since some time, but for this first round exit he has just himself to blame since he didn't prepare on grass and can't expect to beat an in form grass player if he unluckily happens to draw one.
