Maybe it'll prove enough.
You are right there are some differences and not every situation is the same, but this is where the coach needs to be adaptable to suit the certain types of situation.

Peter did fine thus far, despite recent bad losses, and I admit, those losses were hard to take for me as a fan, especially after the AO. But Marat won a slam, the only really important tournament so far this year. He won it in a very convincing fashion. I have to remind myself that.
Marat will always have losses like this, when he isn't there and can't be bothered with it. My dream is that some Safin fans accept that he mightn't be good enough on that day, was outplayed it does happen now and then, instead of making poor excuses, that won't happen.

He has to peak for the major events and that's what counts.

a) If I know anything I am not going to say on a public board.

b) Well Rios was a very young guy and was ranked outside the top 50 and Lundgren got him to # 9 in the world, then Rios being Rios they had enough of each other and went their own ways.

Thanks for trying

As for coaches: I think that tennis is one of the most individual sports, therefore, any coach's contribution is rather limited. This does not mean, they are useless, though, but finally it is all in the individual player's hands, feet and mind.

I also think that Lundgren's role in Marat's AO win has been exaggerated. But Peter certainly has a feel for talent when selecting the guys he works with and he does not shy away from challanges - personalitywise.

All hail Peter!
Well, isn't this exaggerated? But my point was more of a general nature.

I am not religious, but how many people actually have an insight on the Marat personality? Marat doesn't know sometimes, but from the crap getting bagelled by Sanguinetti to winning a Slam in 2 weeks, if he didn't have a hand in turning that around, then what can I say.

I did not say that Lundgren had no hand, but some posts and even articles at that time almost read as if Lundgren himself had played the matches and not Marat.

Considering this has been said many times elsewhere from many tennis fans, everyone knows Marat has to do it himself that it's why it's called singles.

Foul, for one was being tongue in cheek with that comment, but he's a good coach whether you like it or not and his contribution is respected for what it is.

I don't think it's exaggerated, if you look through Marat's interviews around AO, he mentions Peter constantly, repeatedly, even without provocation. I think Peter was a huge influence, and a good one. If Marat says Peter convinced him that he can be a good player... that's pretty damn big.

But Peter's not a magician of course.

I agree foul it's the perfect choice for Marat.

Can you understand GWH that we have emotions and that it's difficult sometimes....When you support and really like a player you suffer with him...You try to understand the guy...but it's not that easy...I was really perturbed after Sopot because of his attitude.

I don't remember who said that love was not only blind but stupid too...I'm not as smart as you.

Speaking about poor excuses, I think that Safin has surpassed his fans.
