It has been a busy time in the sport’s transfer market, with Tommy Robredo, Andy Roddick, Andy Murray and Carlos Moya appointing new coaches recently.
On July 20, Robredo started working with Jordi Vilaro – who was part of the coaching team that worked with Spanish team when they won the Davis Cup in 2000.
The partnership did not get off to the best of starts this week with ATP Masters Series Hamburg champion Robredo losing his Kitzbuehel Open first round match to Jurgen Melzer (report).
Last week’s Indianapolis finalist, Roddick, announced in Los Angeles Monday that Jimmy Connors will act as a consultant until at least the end of the season (report).
Another player that has ranked No. 1 in the INDESIT ATP Rankings, Carlos Moya, split with his coach of four years Joan Bosch. Moya is expected to start work with Luis Lobo shortly before the US Open.
Meanwhile, the Lawn Tennis Association has agreed a deal with Brad Gilbert to act as coach to Murray and develop young talent within the British game.
The former coach of Andre Agassi and Roddick will start work with the 19-year-old Scot at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington next week.
