Roche won't bring Federer closer to French Open

Let's face it, Roche failed where it mattered most in his coaching: Lendl with a Wimby. Rafter without Wimby. Federer without French. Fed should dump Roche and get a coach who could get him that GS.

It isn't Roches fault that Lendl and Rafter lost their Wimbledon finals and Roger this years RG final

Re: Roche won't bring Federer closer to French Open

The only reason for which Federer hasn't won Roland Garros yet, is called Nadal..

yes i hope for his sake that the curse will be lifted for coach roche...roger thinks that roche is helping him, so if its anyone's fault, its roger's not roches.

Therefore he should hire Nadal as his coach!

Ignore me. I'm feeling a bit silly.

After the FO, Nadal should hire Fed as his coach to win Wimby.

It isn't a bad idea at all!!

The truth is that while Nadal plays, Federer is never going to win Roland Garros.

I never expected Roche to have any special magic to make Roger win a French Open. However, Roger did, in fact do a lot better on clay in 2006 than he did in 2005 or 2004. I think that Roger just likes him as an all around coach. I do wonder what Roche does help with .....because it's been a long time since his era, and things have changed a lot.

Roger Forever !

Don't jump to conclusions please There can happen so many things in sport and a victory for Nadal at Roland Garros isn't a guarantee. Otherwise the tournament hasn't to be played and Rafa could have the trophy right now

its okay eden...when and if roger does win, these sorts of speculation will have been squashed. Roger has plenty of time to prove otherwise. no need for us to point out the presumptuous nature of such posts when roger will have the best chance to do so in the future.

If Nadal keeps his good level, and he doesn't get injured, Federer won't win Roland Garros.

Do you like it more this way?

Nadal is the king of clay, and he is much better than Federer on this surface.

The French Open won't be a tournament just between Nadal and Federer. There will be other players challenging both.

It's much to early to make a prediction about the clay court season of 2007.

Man, this is such a retarded thread. Yes, its definitely Rochies fault that Federer can't hit his backhand properly against Nadal.
