Default Federer: Does he need a (new) coach?

Totally objective question (I don't feel strongly either way). Do you think Roger Federer needs a coach? If so, why?

He doesn't need a coach. He needs a couch to f*ck Mirka really hard, to celebrate a great 2004

I think in the long run he does need a coach. As good as he is the game will keep evolving, and of course he has the ability to evolve with it. But seeing things from the perspective of another person alot of the times can help and sometimes it is needed even for a guy as brilliant as Federer is.

Strategies and game-wise aside, a coach is also there to organise a player's schedule- be his intermediatery. With Federer's packed schedule it might be a good idea to have someone help him out with it as doing it all by yourself is very demanding and wearing.

Good point, but it's my understanding that his Mom & his girlfriend handle is schedule for him.

Default Re: Federer: Does he need a coach

It's been just incredible how Fed has done this whole year w/o a coach!
I personally was sure he was waiting fo Cahill but now?
IF Agassi keeps on playing and Cahill denies the rumours.... And Roach also not taking the job... I guess maybe Fed will think about a coach again when some losses start coming next year. And obviously he has made some thoughts or have these been just rumours?

I don't think it's a matter of 'needing' a coach, because he obviously does not.
In the long run it would probably be nice to have a positive influence other than Mirka.

I read somewhere that he will train part time with Tony Roche in Australia... I think Roger is going to Australia after his current holiday in the Maldives...

i think in the long run it wouldnt hurt to get some outside help, but obviously he doesn't need a coach if he did so well this year without one

Why does anyone need a coach?

Marat should have adopted this plan years ago.
