And now, after his amazing Asian Fall swing, he has gave up his coaching with the USTA, and went back to being coached by his Mom.

Horrible horrible move if you ask me!! Lets count the time until he asks for help from the USTA again!?? ugghhh.....

I definitely agree with you here that it's a bad move developmentally speaking. But, the more I thought about it, the more I think it has less to do with tennis, and maybe more to do with finances.

As of the end of this yr, he still didn't have a racket sponsor, and he's no longer under contract with Nike, so that's what I think was the reason for the split. A full time coach is gonna be separate room & board on the road, plus travel expenses, plus probably a base salary & a % of winnings, along with maybe bonuses for certain milestones reached.

I opened a thread to request a sub-forum for him. I need all his supporters to click yes so it happens. Here's a link straight to the page.

Good idea putting that link in here! I have voted Yes already. And I hated to hear he was going back to his mother for a Coach, however, I was even sorrier to hear that he doesn't have the necessary sponsors I hope he doesn't end up in a revolving door where his tennis slips back making it even harder for him to get the needed sponsors so he can again hire a coach! Poor Donald he could really end up in a lose-lose situation

Just read that the reason DY went back to being coached by his Mom is b/c the USTA asked him to come down to the Boca or Carson training ctrs w/o his mom, & he refused, once again.

Really stubborn. I think it's a bad move on his parents part also. They should be encouraging him to be independent. If things dont work out he can always go back to his Mom as coach. A couple of weeks in the off season w/o his Mom isnt gonna kill him.

Gee really stubborn and I hate to say it, but all of this makes him sound like a real mama's boy

Saw an article with him using a dunlop biomemetic racquet. Did he switch racquets from his exo3?

DY went down in 3 sets to Falla, bad loss. His 2nd rd opponent would have been a clay courter, Montanes or Starace.

Yes, a disappointing start to the season. This worries me a bit. I wonder how he trained during the off season.

Above link includes a prediction that DY will beat Ljubicic in the 2nd round. I hope so.

DY pulled out his 1st rd match in 5 sets, after winning the 1st two sets comfortably. I was a little worried he would blow the 2 set lead but he won the 5th set 6-2.
