The Daily Express is a newspaper well versed in the art of making up complete bollocks and then printing it. That does not mean this story is not true. People should be wary however.

Can divorce family these days.

But I see a whole lot of nothing with this.

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".

Yup, probably. How much any new coach can change in someone's game, after he's been pro for a decade anyway?

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Nadal considering sacking uncle Toni after his USO loss

The world No2 was beaten by Novak Djokovic in the US Open final six days ago and is said to be anxiously contemplating a life- changing decision.

Nadal, 25, has won ten Grand Slam titles in harness with Toni, but there are suggestions he is ready to move his career on without him.

Nadal first lost his world No1 ranking to Djokovic, then his Wimbledon title, and now the US crown. The Serb has also defeated Nadal in their last six meetings this year, and insiders are now suggesting that Nadal no longer knows how to beat the undisputed world No1.

Nadal himself admits that it is becoming increasing difficult for family man Toni to continue to have authority over him as a player and a person, and also that his uncle is finding the constant travelling a problem.





Now it appears for the first time he is beginning to rebel against the influence of uncle Toni, a man who has been constantly by his side for 15 years, since Rafa was just ten. And after his recent run of losses, Nadal may feel he has to overhaul his game plan for beating Djokovic.

He has hit the wall in terms of tactics and movement, and somebody with fresh ideas and a different game strategy may now be brought into his camp.

A bit surprising, no?

I am not sure about this... hm.. strange if Novak has broken up Rafa's family like this.

I think Xisca is causing a rift. /end conspiracy

TBH Rafa's game has stopped evolving. Maybe hire an additional consultant and keep Toni than signing up to answer difficult questions in every interview for a very long time.

Wawrinka splits from his coach Peter Lundgren

Announcement on Stan's facebook:

I need to let my fans know Peter Lundgren and I won't be working together anymore. He played a major role in my career and I am deeply grateful. We have had a lot of success and fun working together, I can't thank him enough.

maybe Roger will hire Lundgren again

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Peter Lundgren

Lundgren now returns to the tour, and Wawrinka takes up coaching Murray.

Re: Wawrinka splits from his coach Peter Lundgren

Wawrinka played his best tennis with Lundgren as Coach.

A0 2011 and USO 2010 were great.
His wins over Murray, Querrey, Monfils and Roddick were great.
He played Top 5 tennis in those matches, you could see all his potential on hard court.
His Chennai win 2011 (Jan.) was under Lundgren as well.


But then, the rest of 2011 was very disappointing.
Stan played very passive in his matches at Wimbledon and USO.

Lundgren is a great coach and you could see changes in Wawrinkas games after weeks (!). But those changes were just for a short time.
Now you can see that those were not the right decisions for Wawrinka.
