Court & Social: Coach 'cleaned out because he didn't clean up'
By Mark Hodgkinson (Filed: 05/07/2004)
It does sound a little cuckoo-clock zany, but could Roger Federer's former coach, the man who guided the Swiss to a first Wimbledon title last summer, have been sacked because of a sink full of dirty dishes? The conspiracy theory, heavily tongue-in-chic, is that Federer's immaculate girlfriend wanted one less man to clean up after in the entourage's flat.
Mirka Vavrinec has, on several occasions, complained to friends about the amount of washing-up she does in their rented accommodation in Wimbledon Village. Then there's the washing and cooking. She hardly has time for her proper job, arranging her boyfriend's media commitments. You can't, it seems, have it all.
Mischievous insiders suggest that Peter Lundgren, the highly respected Swedish coach, may have been let go, not for any professional reasons, but for Federer's search for domestic bliss. Lundgren's departure, which was announced last December and had the tennis world in shock for months, with some questioning Federer's decision to go solo, may have been prevented if the coach was better house-trained.

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion
