first, let me thank all the tennis players who make me root for them or boo them! you do make a sport! i am asking, in this question, would roger make a good coach? i know he still has years to play, but 5, 10, 20 years down the road would you think he would be a good coach?

I doubt it. Generally in sports....players with superb talent are not the best coaches.

The players with less talent...who had to maximize their talent to compete....who had to develop more strategy/fitness/cleverness....are better coaches.

maybe thats why I am quite bad as a coach.

Mcenroe wanted to coach Federer.
Two talents I guess.
