Re: Why did he separate from PL?
This is what I read in the paper (Thursday 11/12/03) - had to type the news over, so pls excuse any mistyping or things like that.
WIMBLEDON champion Roger Federer announced yesterday he was splitting with his coach Peter Lundgren in order to give his career 'new impetus'.
"This decision comes after a lot of hard thinking," said the Swiss player who finished the year as world no.2.
"I felt as if I've fallen into sort of the same old routine. And over the last few months our relationship has become more strained."
Federer told the Swede of his decision last week.
"It wasn't easy and of course Peter was very disappointed," said Federer.
The two had worked together since 2000 when Federer quit the coach who had developed his early career, Peetr Carter.
Under Lundgren's guidance, Federer won 11 titles, including this year's Wimbledon title and the ATP Masters Cup in Texas last month.

Hope that short news help a bit.
Maybe Sampras took over from me and now Federer will take over from Sampras - Edberg
