Davis Cup - Annacone replaces Lundgren in GB role
Eurosport - Wed, 02 Apr 18:04:00 2008
Roger Federer's former coach Peter Lundgren resigned from his role with Britain's Davis Cup team

Paul Annacone, the men's head coach, will replace the Swede as Davis Cup coach.

"I would like to thank Peter for all his work over the past 18 months," Britain's Davis Cup captain John Lloyd said.

"He has been a great asset to the Davis Cup team. Peter is keen to spend more time with his father who is unwell and our thoughts are with Peter and his family at this difficult time."

Lundgren was given a leave of absence from coaching last summer after reportedly slurring his words in front of other coaches at an event at the LTA headquarters.

American Annacone, who worked with Pete Sampras and Tim Henman, will now focus on Britain's World Group playoff in September after they were beaten by Argentina in the first round.

"Paul has been working closely with many of our top players in his role as head coach and his knowledge and experience will be vital as we prepare for the play-off," Lloyd said.Reuters

I hope he gets things sorted out.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

A recent article. They say again that Peter's dad was ill.

ATP Tour - Lundgren wants quick return after GB exit

Eurosport - Sun, 11 May 16:53:00 2008

EXCLUSIVE! Former Roger Federer and Marat Safin coach Peter Lundgren explains his sudden departure from the British Davis Cup team and says he wants to get back to coaching as soon as possible.


Q: You were forced to leave your role as coach on the British Davis Cup team when your father became ill. How is he doing and what are your plans for the future?

A: My father's health has improved a lot and right now he is out of the woods. So I really want to start working again, but I don't have any regrets about taking a little time off with my family. It was absolutely necessary at the time.

Q: Do you have any contact with your former players?

A: I talked to Roger Federer about a week ago, but it was more of a friendly conversation. We didn't talk at all about work. But we did work together for seven years so we phone each other up every once in a while.

Q: But you don't have any reunion plans with Federer?

A: Oh, no.

Q: ...or with Marat Safin?

A: No such plans either.

Q: What do you want to do in the future?

A: I would absolutely like to take on a player on the tour again, if the circumstances were right of course. I've had some contact with a few agents but it's almost impossible to get any answers right now as we are in the middle of the season. It usually gets clearer after Wimbledon.

Q: You also suddenly left as coach for Alex Bogdanovic. What happened?

A: The LTA already have Brad Gilbert, who had coached Andy Murray, on their salary list and because they pay him a lot of money they wanted him to take on Alex Bogdanovic too. There wasn't room for another coach among the British players, it's as simple as that really. But I'll probably help Alex for a week or so this year, we'll see what happens. We talk regularly anyway.

Q: Wold you consider working with tennis in some other way in the future?

A: Yeah, there has been some talk about working with TV, but nothing has been decided. Things happen really fast in this business. It only took a couple of weeks after I stopped working with Roger Federer for Marat Safin's agent to phone me. You take it as it comes, and I've got quite a few contacts...

Q: Any favourite player you would like to coach?

A: No, I don't think like that. There are so many interesting players out there. But if you're going to work with someone very closely, you have to be very exact when it comes to how much you're going to work, etc.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Marcos Baghdatis has begun working with Peter Lundgren, the former coach of Roger Federer and Marat Safin. "I started with Peter Lundgren two weeks ago," said Baghdatis in Halle. "He started to change a bit my game. He told me to go forward to the net. So, I’m trying to do that. It’s tough at the beginning because I’m a bit lost on the court. But, it will take time and I hope playing this way can make me play better tennis in the future."
