Yep I am not surprised either. Wonder who will take on De La "male anatomy part" here. ( and I did not give him this nickname )

Cañas.

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

Monfils (who was working with Champion) will now work with Pier Gauthier, at least for the rest of the season.
Gauthier was the coach of Grosjean in 2001.

Grosjean also split with his coach (Brad Stine) one week ago, but he hasn't announced the name of his new coach yet.

Lobo is a funny guy and Moya has had good results with Lobo so far and hope they continue.

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

They have every right to lay the blame on their coach. After all, they've been under the guidance of one their entire sporting life.

Tis important for a player to compete coachless for a portion of their productive years, to gain confidence in their own judgement, therefore becoming a better player.

Re: The Changing of the Guard

In the Djokovic match, the man Thierry Champion was sitting in Paul-Henri Mathieu's section and maybe he has taken over coaching him or just working with him for this event.

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

Champion called Paulo up and offered to work with him just for Bercy.

Just for the event. He has been his coach during 3 years I think (until the famous davis cup match approximatively)

Thanks for that, I wasn't sure either way and good to get fast answers to questions.

Well I wonder who will coach Paulo in the new year unless he decides not to bother with a coach.

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