Yayay, well I don't know how set in stone this is, but they are looking that's encouraging. Maybe after the nadal team saw the way fed beat into youzny it made them open their eyes.

So who are they looking at, this guy. If you don't know too much about him here some info.

Oh and of course he would be just there to help out not take over. But I don't know for how long, hopefully it works out.

On Vamos brigage, there is an article but I don't read spanish so. But some one was good enough to translate it for us.

that's good. at least there's something going on. rafa's taking measures so that he doesn't get beaten so often by his numerous tough opponents.

It's only a speculation. Nothing official. It's an article from Tennis Magazine which suggests Higueras as a possible coach for Rafa.

Very good. It's good to hear that they are considering their options.

Rafa obviously envies Tursunov's game on clay so he's trying to hire Dmitry's former coach. :angel:

Yeah very funny. :p
NOT on clay obviously, on hard courts! :p Would be a good choice. :D Very smart - Spanish speaking and all. :D

Does this mean Rafa will come to Sacramento? :hearts:

I fear not. It seems Higueras is no longer based in California. He used to co-own the Gorin-Higueras academy when he was Dmitry's coach but now it's just the Goring academy and Gorin is Dmitry's coach.
Sorry. :hug: ;)

The former Higueras-Gorin Tennis Academy (in Granite Bay) is now the Gorin Tennis Academy.

Gorin & Higueras ended their partnership a few years ago. The former Higueras-Gorin Tennis Academy (in Granite Bay) is now the Gorin Tennis Academy. Higueras Tennis is in Palm Springs.

This is only speculation as there is no reference to an article mentioned.

Shouldn't this be in the Rafa forum, BTW?

Edit: Wait, Palm Springs, CA or Palm Springs, FL? When I hear "Palm Springs" I immediately think of the one a hundred miles away, but I must remember that there's another one on the other side of the continent. :awww:

In J'torian's spirit of keeping a pretense at being on topic, I'm a linguist: I can coach Rafa in English! :D

I would be a better coach than you :ras: You will just confuse him with details about the origin of each word and expression.

My teaching system: every time Rafa says 'no' and 'pression' he will have to do anything I ask. :devil:

Pffft. California is so overrented! They should all move to Massachusetts to improve their indoors results.
