I was watching TTC here in the states with the European Madrid feed and the commentators were talking about how and why some South American players continually change coaches.

I thought this was a bit out of line and obviously an opinion although not stated as such.

Now I know many MTF's have opinions and don't mind commentating a bit themselves. But I also think that there are others here who may actually have information to share in this regard. So comment away please
when I saw this thread title I thought it was about Murray going up on Henman 5-2, but now I see it's only another thread about South American players.

I've a soft spot for the South Americans. They are a little different from the other players and bring a great flavor to the tour. If they change coaches or blame their coaches -- it's no more than players from other parts of the world do. Actually, I think it's been a bit more common in recent years for a player to change coaches. It used to be a rare event. Now I see many players changing coaches.
