Haas splits up with Hogstedt

09-16-2007, 04:22 PM
According to the german magazine Focus Tommy has fired his coach Thomas Hogstedt.

"Nach den US Open habe ich mich von Thomas Hogstedt getrennt, jetzt sondere ich den Markt nach einem neuen Trainer“, sagte Haas dem FOCUS. „Ich will noch drei, vier Jahre auf höchstem Niveau spielen, und es ist nach wie vor mein Ziel, ein Grand-Slam-Turnier zu gewinnen. Dafür will ich noch mal einen neuen Weg einschlagen, mit einem neuen Trainer“, erklärte die aktuelle Nummer zehn der Weltrangliste."

quick translation:

"After the Us Open I have split up with Thomas Hogstedt, now I look for a new coach. I still want to compete at the highest level for another three or four years and it is still my goal to win a Grand Slam tournament. Therefore I want to go a new way together with a new coach".

I know the translation is not very accurate, but I'm a bit in a hurry.

A mutual agreement and Hogstedt likes to split up after some time. Lets see how much time he spends with his family until he enters a new engagement.

Where do I send my resume?

(just kidding, I wouldn't last very long. If Tommy yelled at me, I would yell right back. I can just imagine my husband translating all his German swear words for me...)
