PS. Serena's success (with Patrick) is overrated. She can win Slams with anybody when she puts her focus on training. Patrick just enjoys free publicity.
Yes, he is staying with Serena for the free publicity - to look like he is the reason she is playing really well right now. For me Mouratoglou is only concerned about his business and does whatever it takes to advertise his academy. I remember that I read an interview with Yanina Wickmayer and she said that she left the academy, because Patrick was coaching Grigor for most of the time ... looks like the same thing is happening now - looks like he is only concerned about Serena ...

In my opinion everything was going OK when Grigor was with McNamara, but I suspect that Patrick saw that Grigor was going up in the ranking and decided to make the change and to be his coach.

I don't know how they are working together, but I think Patrick should be with Grigor preparing him for the next tournaments and it doesn't seem that way.

I just don't thing that Mouratoglou is the right person for Grigor right now, since he is not with him all the time .. and the more success Serena has in the future, the more time Patrick will probably stay with her, so my opinion is that Grisho has to get away from that academy as soon as possible.

I'm curious what do you guys think about that, because here in Bulgaria looks like a lot of people are sharing my opinion that he has to find another coach who is fully-committed and will be working only with him?
Id quite like him to hire Larry Stefanki but isnt he coaching wawrinka right now?

I'm quite surprised by the pictures of Serena and Patrick. I had no idea they were seeing each other but I guess that will put an end to the rumours about her and Grigor.

This is good news as far as I'm concerned. Playing doubles will help his game and I was disappointed he did play more of it this year.

Patrick seems heavily occupied with his new star Serena. I hope Grigor could find a new coach who can 100% committed to him.

Re: ☼On the road with Grigor Dimitrov☼

I'm glad he's taken a long break until his next tournament. He's had a few foot problems over the summer so it will give him time to heal, rest and work on his game. Hopefully he comes to Thailand motivated and in good form.

24-30 Sep - Thailand Open (he is in the main draw)
01-07 Oct - Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships (he needs 3 players to withdraw to get in the main draw)
08-14 Oct - Shanghai Rolex Masters (he will play qualies here)
15-21 Oct - IF Stockholm Open (he is in the main draw)
22-28 Oct - Swiss Indoors Basel (he needs 6 players to withdraw to get in the main draw)

He's going to have to turn this match around soon. I found these tweets about the match.

OnTheGoTennis ‏@onthegotennis
Grigor really bothered by his foot. It's a little worrisome

Sandy ‏@nycsandygirl
@sapphireswell @gandaines ok I will but enjoying Grigor for the moment. He is killing it w some great passing shots, volleys & drop shots

Sandy ‏@nycsandygirl
Awesome drop shot from Grigor to get AD. It almost went back over the net. Grigor had a big smile on his face. Cute.
