Re: Tennis magazine rates Coaches

I don't think Bollettieri is all that brilliant. Sure many of his players have had some very good results. But it's difficult to say whether it's because of the natural talent of the players or Bollettieri's coaching skills.

Re: Tennis magazine rates Coaches

Bollettieri forehand factory.

No Peter Lundgren who got Rios and Federer in the top 10 and had a huge impact on their games, not like bandwagon Gilbert who comes along for the ride and not do any development stuff before Murray.

Percy Rosberg who discovered Borg and then told Edberg to change his 2 hander to a single hand backhand.

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".

Past tense, had a 2 hander.

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: Tennis magazine rates Coaches

you guys should read Mike Agassi's bio (andre's dad) he blames Bollettieri for turning Andre into a Baseline player, he said Andre was more of a serve and volleyer like Sampras before he went to Bollettieri Academy but that Bollettieri turned his game purely 1 dimensional, he also said that Bollettieri exploited Andre allot that he made Andre feature in his academy's instructional video but never paid him, he would use Andre's wimbledon win to promote the academy but than when Andre wanted to cut lose Nick wanted more money ....I was like wow he really hates the guy



it seems like the more high profile a coach is the more time they spend promoting themselves than time on the courts with their students....

Re: Tennis magazine rates Coaches

Peter Lundgren also helped Marat Safin to win his second title in a Grand Slam tournament when he beat in the semis Federer after that thrilling match. In my opinion he really is one of the great coaches.

I was going to say the same thing - how about some of the great coaches out of South America and Spain.
