Paul Annacone will replace Peter Lundgren as a coach with Britain's Davis Cup team

The Associated Press
Published: April 2, 2008

Annacone, who used to coach Pete Sampras, Roger Federer, Marat Safin and Tim Henman, will help prepare Britain's team for the World Group playoffs in September. Britain will find out who it plays on April 16.
"Paul has been working closely with many of our top players in his role as head coach and his knowledge and experience will be vital as we prepare for the World Group playoff," Britain captain John Lloyd said Wednesday.
The 45-year-old Annacone won the 1985 Australian Open doubles title with Christo van Rensburg.
Andy Murray is the only British player in the top 100, and he didn't play Britain's 4-1 loss at Argentina in the first round, citing injury.
Lundgren resigned for family reasons after 18 months in the job.
"He has been a great asset to the Davis Cup team," Lloyd said. "Peter is keen to spend more time with his father who is unwell and our thoughts are with Peter and his family at this difficult time."
In November, Annacone signed a three-year contract extension with Lawn Tennis Association to continue as head coach of British men's tennis, focusing on youth development. He joined the LTA in November 2006.
Last year, Lundgren was given a leave of absence by the LTA during Wimbledon after reportedly slurring his words while speaking in front of other coaches before the tournament.

Spend as much as possible, speak a lot of bullshit, deliver absolutely nothing. These are the principles of the LTA.
