Mirka not Tony Roche secret to Roger's success

In 2004 Roger didn't have a coach and won 3 out of the 4 slams. In 2006 Roger the first man in the modern Open era to do it again win 3 out of 4 slams in 2006. But Mirka not Tony Roche is the secret to Roger's success. Mirka is a wonderful to Roger she keeps him grounded and she is a very positive influence in his life. Its clear to me that Roger wouldn't be as balanced if Mirka wasn't there at the US OPEN always supporting him. Roger played in front of all those screaming Americans. For the second year in a row Roger played an American in the final and he won bashing Agassi and Roddick on the fourth sets. Mrka is more then just Roger's girlfriend she also is one of his managers, she sets up his interviews as well. Mirka has a lot more power and influence then people realize. She isn't just Roger Federer's girlfriend this woman she runs the show. Mirka is the boss.

I still think Mirka is a cover up girlfriend, who is the cute dude with the long hair that's always in Fed's box? Uh huh, :devil:

Mirka is with Roger 24/7--Tony is with him only a handfull of weeks a year. Mirka is certainly more valuable to Roger. If Tony were to leave nothing would happen to Roger's game, if Mirka left the same could not be said.

Omg, I wanted to know who that was too...but was a little embarrassed to ask, espcially since I knew I couldnt find a picture...and figured no one would know who I was talking about...guess i was wrong. haha

Does anyone think he looks a little like henman...only hotter. I didnt see him that many times, but i thought they shared a resemblance.

either way....someone stalk away and find out who this guy is.

Reto Staubli, a former Swiss pro, a friend who trains with Rog but works for a bank as far as I know.

True. He's his sparring-partner for a few years now.

Really? I heard Cahill was going with Safin. Too bad. Marat is desperately in need of a coach. Roger apparently doesn't need one at all.

I don't even think Safin knows who is coach is yet, let alone any of us.

en français - interview avec Roger - 14.08.2006 (http://www.lematin.ch/nwmatinhome/nwmatinheadsport/sport_divers/_une_demi-saison_presque.html)

i translate the part relating to Darren Cahill

Question to Roger Federer: You'd like Darren Cahill to succeed your coach Peter Lundgren. After Agassi's retirement, he could be free for next season...

Roger Federer: I doubt Cahill is free. I heard that despiste Agassi's retirement, he still will be part of André's plans. As far i'm concerned, I speak with Tony (Roche). He is ready to work with me next season. He'll remain my coach.


Anyway, Swiss tv commentator said that we will know the final decision right after the USO...

If Mirka is Roger's key to success, then she will also be his downfall.

*thinking of evil plot to remove Mirka from Roger's team* :devil:

Well if he has Roche 50/50 what does he need Cahill for? Seems to me it's just an easy rumor to start because Agassi is retired now and Cahill is apparently free. Roger's proven he doesn't need a full time coach. I would think Cahill would want a full time job. :shrug:
