Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Maria, I remember the particular clowns calling for his head just after he took over and he wasn't winning. I don't forget things like 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".

Everything...anything we don't know.

Good to see I haven't heard people calling for him to be sacked.
Because of Marat's recent bad losses?

Well, Peter is great for Marat...but he's not God "unfortunately"....The coach can't go on the court and play, he just can give him good advices.

Marat has grown up but he will never change...Even if he listens to Peter, there will always be up and downs....and as a real fan it's difficult to admit it sometimes.

Marat doesn't like IW, Miami, Olympics, he hates grass, and the list goes on...What can Peter do?

I don't know what to think about the clay season..we'll see..

Anyway, Peter is doing a great job, teaching him how to keep his head in the game and he knows that Marat plays at a higher level at big events (especially RG).

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

I know he is doing a good job and I knew he would from the start that's not the issue. I just remember the calls from Safin fans wanting him to be sacked just as soon as he took over coaching him.

I don't have a problem with what Peter is doing.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

After Wimbledon?...or after US Open?

I don't know...I joined MTF at the end of july 2004...I only remember people wanting him to quit tennis and open his own night club after the USO tragedy.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

After Wimbledon and for sure after the US Open.

I think Marat should spend more time in the nightclubs before he opens one.

It's just that I get irritated when people expect instant results like Chesnokov got when he won 2 titles in the first 3 weeks they were together, it doesn't happen like 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".

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Erm, I was just a bit shocked after the US Open, like Marat himself I guess. But I've never questioned Lundgren.
And like Bea I don't remember the people who wanted him to sack Lundgren. But yeah, I remember some angry people calling him to quit tennis and open a night club. As I said then and say it now - it's completely up to Marat what to do. He himself also said something like "It's my life and my career" in his recent interviews. It seems to me that sometimes he listens even too much what other people say, gets too easily influence, sometimes again he seems to be too stubborn. A complex person as he is.

I don't know who they are and don't want to judge them...but being a player's fan doesn't mean you know a lot about tennis.

I understand your feeling and I agree.

Fans expect instant results, players expect instant results...You know nowadays in sport, coaches are hired to be fired.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Marat had great coaches before Peter...There's no miracle...almost everything is in his hands.

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

I never expected results immediately, but hearing Marat talk about the USO non-stop all season long and then failing to deliver I was pissed. Yes I was one of those people asking questions at the time. And no offense, but we all know it took longer for Marat and Peter to get it going then between other players and coaches so are the comments really that surprising? I don't think so!

Just my humble opinion.

SINCE THERE'S NO TENNIS ACTION I WENT FOR TONGUE ACTION

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Well Chesnokov and Volkov are Russian for a start so that immediately gives them an advantage in understanding Marat more than an outsider and Mensua helped bulid the base.

How long did it take with Federer? The results speak for themself, if it wasn't for Lundgren finishing the product then Federer wouldn't have come to be at the stage that he is now as quickly.

Anyone with a brain knows that the individual has to take some responsibility. It's not like Marat has suffered from bad coaches, he hasn't had Gilbert or Bolletieri.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Peter Lundgren glorification thread

Boo Boo Ilhame.

We were very sad after the USO...and we all vented...Marat was playing really bad and not happy at all on the court...But it was not because of Peter's inefficiency...he's not a magician.

I was very disappointed in Marat because of his attitude...Do you remember Wimbledon, Olympics, Sopot... and the comments "Safin takes the appearance fee"...tanking...tanking.

Peter tried and tries to give him more fighting spirit.

Marat doesn't have all that much time though. I admire what Peter did with Marat so far, he's a top-notch coach, but situations are not really comparable. Roger was a junior when Peter started to work with him, his game and personality was still building (as far as I know - I have no in-depth knowledge of Peter-Roger relationship); Marat is an established player and person already, all that Peter can do is some tweaking. Maybe it'll prove enough.

Peter did fine thus far, despite recent bad losses, and I admit, those losses were hard to take for me as a fan, especially after the AO. But Marat won a slam, the only really important tournament so far this year. He won it in a very convincing fashion. I have to remind myself that.

in love with an idiot

I would like to know what exactly happened between Roger and Peter?

And how was his relationship with Rios? How long did it take with him?
