Default Dimitri Zavialoff

I was just wondering if anyone knows anything about Stan's coach, Dimitri Zavialoff. I know they've worked together since Stan was eight. But where is Dimitri from? Did he ever play tennis professionally? How old is he?

Dimitri is a Frenchie. His brother Grigori Zavialoff is Stan's former manager. Stan and Grigori announced the end of their four-year collaboration in November 2007.

12.11.2007 - Time off
Stan et Greg mettent fin à leur collaboration

D'un commun accord, Stanislas Wawrinka et Gregory Zavialoff mettent fin à quatre ans de collaboration. Gregory occupait la fonction de manager sportif. «Je remercie Greg et suis reconnaissant du travail accompli depuis mon début de carrière» déclare Stan. «Mais aujourd’hui, j’ai décidé de changer de méthode au niveau de mon management».

Amis de longue date, les frères Zavialoff ont participé à la belle ascension de Stan dans le classement du tennis mondial. Dimitri Zavialoff, son coach sportif, va poursuivre son excellent travail. Avec Stan, ils visent une place dans le Top 20 mondial en 2008.


========================================

Greg is 31 (http://www.tennisprediction.com/?a=p...=-1&sr2=1&tq=M), I don't know how old Dimitri is though.


Ooops, I googled and just found: Dimitri is 33

DES ENTRAÎNEURS AU TOP
Entraîneur du numéro 10 mondial depuis quinze ans, Dimitri Zavialoff est, à 32 ans (that was last year ), un des plus jeunes entraîneurs du circuit. Il a connu son poulain lorsque celui-ci était bébé! Normal que leur complicité soit si grande. «Dimitri et Stan ont le même objectif, la même façon de travailler: ils ont eu la chance de tomber l'un sur l'autre», observe Grégory Zavialoff, ancien manager de Wawrinka. L'autre personnage important de l'encadrement technique de Wawrinka est Pierre Paganini. L'entraîneur physique s'occupe de lui depuis près de cinq ans. Il partage son temps entre Federer (150 jours par an) et Stanislas (70). C'est lui qui a fait progresser ce dernier en endurance et, surtout, en intensité.

===========================================


Hope this helps.

Dimtri is from Alsace and is of Russian background. He has worked with Stani since childhood and he wasn't part of the Swiss tennis federation system.

His parents are friends with Stani's parents, he played juniors, but decided to get into coaching.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

TM: Dimitri Zavialoff is French, from Colmar. How did he enter your personal life?
SW: Our families knew each other for long. His parents and mine were close since they were very young. In fact, they had been seeing each other since they were kids. He had a try in tennis, but he stopped very quickly. When he was coming home for a holiday, he then often took care of me. Then, he went to an Academy that Bob Brett had created, near Lugano. Once this experience stopped after 2 or 4 years, I can't remember, he totally dedicated himself to me. Also a bit with my elder brother who wanted to have a try with me. He's now a tennis teacher for kids, between Lausanne and Geneva.
