Not only Becker-Djokovic and Edberg-Federer. Read this analysis from Espn Deportes about all the former top-5 who have recently got back on track as coaches (or whatever...) of today's champions.

it makes sense: the players respect and would listen better to someone who has been where they want to go. whether the new coach can communicate and transfer the knowledge is another matter.

I'd love to see Agassi coaching though. I heard him do match commentary/analysis at the us open once and he was brilliant! he had so much insight, specially as he was recently retired and knew the players well.

I think these players trying to follow Murray might be disappointed, Murray's improvements has largely been a result of larger strength and better serve

Murray was reaching finals, beating the top players and sucking on clay even before Lendl.

I'm not saying Lendl didn't help, he surely did but he did not changed much if any in gameplan or technique. Murray is basically the same the same player for quite some years now. I think it's not an exaggeration to say that pre Lendl Murray would have had quite a good chance to beat Janowicz, Verdasco, Djokovic at Wimbledon and Berdych, Djokovic at a windy US Open.

It's really more stars of the 80s, not 90s. Both Becker and Edberg were still active in the 90s but took off in the 80s. And remember Lendl and Connors....only McEnroe and Wilander resists.
