Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Lundgren never coached Spadea, he has more class than that.

Well he was talented, but enjoyed other things as I mentioned earlier, so when I did the intro thing it makes sense as to how Lundgren can handle certian players.

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".

Vinny Ice was definitely spread around the grounds at the AO.

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: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

I will and if you want to find out what inspired my signature here it is.

This a reply to what was said to me.

Clay Masters

Lundgren as Yoda, yes I can see that.

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: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

That's up to Marat how long they want to spend together.

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".

This is how I've always felt and stated elsewhere, too.

I mean Chesnokov, Volkov and Wilander were very good coaches in their own way. I think Chesnokov didn't want to travel at that time, but anyway you can have the best of everything, but it means nowt if the player doesn't put in.

Thanks for the post. I think I'll visit the thread later. I want to know the end of this story and I have to thank him for inspiring my new sig as well.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Thanks for the great translation, foul.

storm, I'm trying to control my expectations. But, if Peter really likes grass and Marat respects Peter, "Oh my!" as Dick Enberg would say. *fingers crossed*

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Marat hates grass and don't get the hopes up.

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".

Very true, George. I feel, in a sense, that it's not solely Peter's efforts (great though they are! Thank God for Peter!) that bring the recent results, but the fact that Marat has grown up at last and is ready to actually listen to the coach's advice. That's what really made the difference, imo. Has Peter come, say, 2 years ago, he'd probably got fired after a few months, like everyone else.

in love with an idiot
