New Coaches - Nicolas Escude & Thierry Ascione

Tsonga takes Escude and Ascione as coaches

Quote:
AFP - French number one Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has chosen compatriots Nicolas Escude and Thierry Ascione as his new joint coaches, replacing Roger Rasheed.

"The fact that they are two is an advantage as it means I can get different perspectives on my game," said Tsonga ahead of the Paris Masters tournament, which started on Monday.

"They have already proven themselves as far as I am concerned. Thierry has worked very well with all the players he has had in the last few years and helped them progress. I am thinking of Nicolas Mahut and Kristina Mladenovic.

"Nicolas has less experience as a coach but he was Fed Cup captain and that is a big plus. In any case it is not so much what he has done as a coach that matters - more what he achieved as a player."

Escude was France's Fed Cup captain from 2008 to 2022 and as a player he won the Davis Cup with France in 2001, defeating Australia in the final in Melbourne.

Currently ranked ninth in the world, Tsonga parted company with Rasheed in August, having been with Lleyton Hewitt's former coach since October 2012.

Prior to that his long-time coach had been Frenchman Eric Winogradsky from 2004 to 2011.

Tsonga has been in the world top 10 for several years but has yet to win one of the four Grand Slam titles.

Tsonga hires Ascione and Escude as coaches



Quote:
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has hired two French compatriots, Thierry Ascione and Nicolas Escude, to be his new coaches. Tsonga recently split with Australian coach Roger Rasheed, who is now coaching Grigor Dimitrov. Ascione and Escude will also continue working with Nicolas Mahut.

“We have been in touch for a while now,” Tsonga told reporters. “We have agreed on a project for my training and I am happy to begin this new adventure. The fact that there are two coaches means I’ll have two different points of view.

“Our new partnership will change nothing for Nico. When one coach is with me at a tournament, the other will be with him. When we are both playing the same tournament, well, they’ll both be there!”

Well he has done 1 coach and no coach. Time to try 2 coaches split between 2 players.


I think he was doing fine with Rasheed, but that injury came at the wrong moment. Don't know if the injury was caused by overtraining (possibly Rasheed's fault) though.

I agree. I thought things were going well with Rasheed but obviously if he was pushing Jo too hard then I understand why Jo split with him. Hope these two guys help him achieve good things

OBJECTIVE AND UNBIASED NADAL FAN
NADAL= Excuses, bending the rules, fluke 2010, weak clay field, classless celebrations, lucky draws, first player to lose 3 consecutive GS finals to the same man, 3 consecutive losses to players ranked outside 100 at Wimbledon including injured Darcis, only beats injured or UE strewn Djoko or Fed, embarrassed by Stronga. VAMOS!
