Congrats man! Finally you joined the mass gathering of losers! Be proud!
Next fact look at the common theme of the players he coached Rios, Federer and Marat, you could say he likes to work with talentless donkeys, but being quite a talented player who didn't always focus, that helps him in the approach that he has had with these types of players.
I heard that Peter was quite lazy when he was a player...He probably learned from his own mistakes...That's why he knows what to do with mental issues.
He's very successful as a coach because he knows better than anyone else how to fulfill his players' abilities.
Of course, we can say that they were already gifted...but despite having a perfect technique they are lost without mental conditionning.
Safin's fans know that the potential is not enough.
