Yes,he just put it on his website,it is over.Thomas and Nicolas have decided to part ways.For now,Kiwi will be alone.But really,the guy needs a coach! It is NOT pretty without a coach,i saw that this year! It is not about the practices but about the mental part that a coach is needed in his case! lol.I don,t know who will be his next coach but I am hoping not Gilbert anyway,it wouldn't work.We all knew that this separation was coming.Thomas just wanted to stay with his family.He had brought the family in miami but that can,t work all the time.good luck finding a coach.

He has been posting a lot on his website. He must be bored. I have been on tennis holiday break and hardly kept up with any tennis news.

Gilbert hates Nicolas and always makes fun of him when he commentates him on tv. Gilbert wants a big time player, not a counter a puncher like Nicolas. I see Nicolas with Becker (just kidding- :haha: ) Actually, I do see him with some German.

Becker,no way,that couldn't work.but you know tarik,roddick'ex coach is a good choice.i got to know him like 5 years ago.he was like andy's puppy but still an excellent coach.i think that he is training a french guy now.gilbert,never,not after his mr t comments.

i personally enjoyed the mr t comments :lol: that was the only time in my life i laughed at anything gilbert's ever said lolll. oh well. its sad to see thomas go for sure, but hopefully this will be for the better :)

does anyone have translations of all these entries he's been writing? i've been seriously slacking in the tennis world for a number of weeks now due to concerts / boys / bands :lol: i just pretty much skim this forum once a day for kiwi news... :sad:

I was away for two days and when I yesterday saw the message on his homepage it came really very very unexpected. I didn't think of that or that they would break up. He wrote on his homepage that Thomas' family has suffered a lot when he was all the time away from at home. At the same time Kiwi admits that he has the feeling that -in order to do the final step to the top- he needs somebody else to advance, and that Thomas also needs somebody new.

It's really very very sad that Kiwi could no title during that engagement, but I would like to thank Thomas for everything that he did for Kiwi and he was very important to stop Kiwi's downwards-spiral and slump. I don't think Kiwi could have done it with ANYBODY.
Thanks, Thomas Hogstedt! :worship: :D :yeah:

hmph, it was announced today that Thomas Hogstedt will now be coaching Tommy Haas. So much for wanting to spend more time with his family :(

I know,i was just informed that and now,i am more confused than ever.thomas didn't want to stay with nicolas cause of his family and now he is training tommy.unless it is not a permanent situation with tommy and that red will still coach him.but tommy lives most of the time in the usa so that confuses me even more.and if thomas wanted to find a player who's not a mentalcase..not a good choice.still nicolas's choice is not any better,sasha has a family too..so what is the deal here? I am thinking money.lol

Maybe Nicolas should get Red as his coach...

Well for now it is Sasha.I am still confused.Sasha is not like Thomas at all.Nicolas likes to go out with his coach especially to go eat somewhere.Sasha didn't do that and Nicolas was alone.god i am confused.lol.

Hogstedt made the offer already three weeks before Haas agreed. So it means that Hogstedt was already looking for a new job in the middle of November. I think we can forget this "he wants to spend more time with his family"-thing. Probably Högstedt wants to be coach of a top player and he thinks that Haas is better than Kiefer. :o

lol, now that's really an unexpected change :lol:
we now that the thing that Hogstedt needs more time with his family is crap and either Kiwi was not honest to us in his statements or Thomas did not play with open cards as they ended their relationship, but maybe everything turns out well and Hogstedt is helping Tommy and Nensel is good for Kiwi ;)

Högstedt is Emma Laine's coach next year. :yeah: Now he has two players! He will go to "some" tournaments with her at least.
