Lacko ended cooperation with Matej Liptak before Bratislava CH (Liptak coached simultaneously Slovak Fed Cup team) because of some disagreements between them. Liptak had a positive impact on Lacko at the begining of season, but nothing special from on there.

His new coach is Ladislav Simon (previously coached Slovak players - Jozef Kovalik or Norbert Gombos). Not a good move imo, but Lacko played great in Helsinki.

Well... this could be useful for Wawa.
He totally needs a good coach, he has the talent, that backhand is not just beautiful, but also really powerful when he hits it with his full-power.

His clay movement could be great also. Best-Wawa can be AMAZING.

I’ve known Pete for a couple of years now and was always intrigued by the work he did. Pete is a former top 10 singles and doubles player, having won numerous titles in both. He’s also coached some top players so has seen it all and done it himself. He brings a wealth of experience from which I hope to learn.
I am really looking forward to pushing and challenging myself to become a better athlete, player and person under Pete's guidance.

he doesn't say exactly that, in december they are working together full-time, that's clear, but not clear that he says more :

"Seve has concretely been my part-time coach since march this year. It's even full time at the moment, he has helped me a lot".

Especially it's not clear here that Luthi takes parts with Federer. Last year, it was visible that Luthi shared his time between Wawrinka and Federer, and as Fed is in south America (only with his physio, it seems), it's logical that Luthi works full-time with him. Besides, I think that usually Annacone was the one who prepared Federer during training-blocks (Paganini prepared the physical part), Luthi rather helped Fed during tournaments (all that aside from Davis cup where Luthi is the Swiss captain), which left a lot of other time as well.

Stan's physical preparation is fully prepared by Pierre Paganini, who's also known to have prepared Federer physically since he was an adolescent.

He works especially on his forehand, timing and going inside the court.

He also says that he will play 3 or 4 more tournaments in 2013 (apart from the big 4, he was the top-50 player who played the smallest number of tournaments in last years)

Wawrinka will work with Magnus Norman

Wawrinka Teams Up With Norman On Trial Period

Stanislas Wawrinka has agreed to a trial coaching period with former World No. 2 Magnus Norman. The duo will work together mainly before and during major championships.

Wawrinka has been without a coach for more than 12 months. He said, “I have been eager to work with Magnus for many years now and I’m very excited to finally have that opportunity.

“We will explore our relationship through this test period and I have no doubt it will bear fruit with hard work and dedication. I am excited to learn from his experiences. He is a fantastic coach and was a great player, so I only see an upside to this relationship. He most certainly will add a different dimension to my game.”

Former World No. 2 Norman said, “I hope it will be the start of something very good. As always, it’s important to set the bar high but be humble doing so.”

Norman won one ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title at the 2000 Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome, a few weeks before he reached the Roland Garros final (l. to Kuerten). The Swede had a 12-6 record in tour-level singles finals. In his post-playing career, Norman coached Robin Soderling for two years.

There is a French interview with Magnus about his work with Stan.
Here's a translation via Google (maybe some of the French speaking users can clarify it a bit more):

"Stan has to feed his killer instinct"

Magnus Norman, how would you describe Wawrinka as a person and as a player?

He is very pleasant to be around, generous personality. I appreciate working with him. It's rewarding. Stan is shy, unsure of himself. This is sometimes seen on a tennis court. He needs to build his confidence. This is a point on which I hope to help, which we have already started working. As a player, he's a talented, already has a successful career behind him. He just lacks some very good results on the big tournaments. But he plays the same time as Roger (Federer), Rafa (Nadal) and Novak (Djokovic), which does not facilitate the task. With them - and also Murray now - it is not easy to break into the Grand Slams. Our goal with Stan, is to achieve something in a major tournament.

This timidity does not grow to be too nice against certain opponents? He sometimes gives the impression of being denied the right to earn unconsciously ...

Absolutely. I had the same feeling as having the opportunity to observe closely. He needs to further develop a killer instinct. Especially during the important points. It should no longer play as "Mr. nice" but that killer instinct. Without changing personality. He just needs to address these key points with a warrior spirit.

It was striking against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Monte Carlo. What advice will you give to this Madrid hand (note: he beat the French in three sets in the night from Friday to Saturday)?

Here, the conditions are not the same as Monte Carlo. This is higher altitude here and they will play at night. As before any match, we will be well prepared, discuss the specific points to work together and adopt a strategy. But it is important to focus on the game for Stan. This will be our priority this evening (note: last night). The bottom line is that he can believe in him, in his ability to beat Tsonga. I do not want him to consider a good match. I want him to shows in the match winner.

In Switzerland, Wawrinka is often in the shadow of Roger Federer. Does it did not somewhat inhibited?

Maybe. Roger is unique. He is probably the best player of all time and it is clear that it is not easy to "cohabit" with him. But Stan is Stan. He has a great career. He was in the top 10, top 20 now. If we consider the number of players that are on the circuit, it is already an achievement. But he clearly has the ability and all the weapons to be ranked higher and still get very good results in major tournaments. He is fresh, physically and mentally. I feel he can push even further the performance.

What improvements are you aiming at the technical level?

There are several things for improvement in his game. Obviously, his backhand is world class. Perhaps the best in the circuit. At the right time, however, there is room for improvement. Although it is good. This is not so much the act that can be improved as its positioning on the court at the time of the strike. This is something that we can adjust. As the return of service. He is sometimes hesitant, do not really know whether to stay back to back or forward in the court. We can also work on the service. It has ups and downs. I would like it to be a more solid and constant service. These are small things we can improve on and which we have already begun to work.

Sometimes he shows signs of impatience and will mark the point in two or three keystrokes instead of extending ...

Indeed, we have also discussed this point. I watched it several times. Already when I was the coach of Robin Söderling and Stan played against him. I have a pretty clear idea about it. It's quite a mental aspect of the game. It has to do with his state of mind and pressure management.

The results you achieved with Söderling speak for themselves. What do you aim with Wawrinka?

I do not like talking about myself. I prefer to talk about Stan. We set the bar pretty high. We set goals to achieve, but we prefer to keep them to ourselves. I am convinced that daily work on small things can have a huge impact. Stan played very well since the beginning of the year. He had tight matches against Djokovic in Melbourne, Berdych in Davis Cup or Tsonga in Monte Carlo. Defeats. I think his victory against Ferrer in Estoril brought him a lot of confidence. It is a dynamic success. I hope it will continue. I see no reason why he should not win tonight (note: last night) against Tsonga.

The Djokovic defeat in Australia was painful but didn't it help to take a step forward?

I discussed this with Severin Lüthi who told me that Stan had much better digested this defeat than others. He felt that Stan had a good shot rather than moping. He was able to take the positive of this match and move forward. This surely explains his strong start to the season. There was indeed not that bad in this defeat. It was a match of very high level.

You swapped with Lüthi?

This was a priority on my list. It was important to me because he follows Stan for a long time and knows him better than me. We spent time together here in Madrid, watched two games of Stan together and talked a lot about his tennis. His impact on Stan the past two years was very helpful. I also talked with Pierre Paganini, his physical trainer.

What do you think of his time "solo"?

It was a good thing. Especially as he still had Paganini and Lüthi. Although he is sometimes unsure of himself, Stan is not less determined. He knows what he wants. He did not want to take a coach just for taking one. He wanted the right person, someone you trust.

That person was you and he expected you to be free ...

I am very honored. But I prefer to stay humble. It is not magic. You can not change things overnight. This requires dedication and patience. We started well. He won in Portugal. We also have to face losses and learn from them. But he grew mentally. We are in preparation for Roland Garros and Wimbledon, but it is in a position to do something here (note: in Madrid).

Norman is a great guy. He's not one of those ultra-demanding in-your-face coaches so it will be a smooth transition for Wawrinka that's been without a coach for some time. Think it could work.


Maybe we'll see Stan under a towel at change-overs. That was one of the distinct changes he did with Soderling. Focus less on the opponent, crowd, whatever. Just go into your own bubble. Works great for offensive players because if they keep focus and keep the errors away the results will come to. It's all about finding the zone and staying in the zone and not worry about missing shots or even the actual score in the match. Just play and focus and you'll likely win. Worked wonders for Robin, can certainly work for Stan as well.

He could do big thinks already in RG. His backhand isn't exploitable on clay, more than you can say for current Federer
