I have some questions:

1. does an overall coach really help? Or is it more important to have specialized coaches? Par exemple, Djokovic hiring Woodforde. Federer's former alliance with Tony Roche.

2. Does hiring an overall coach to restructure your game ever work? Por ejemplo, didn't work for Coria, Gonzalez keeps slipping, didn't work for Roddick after Gilbert redid parts of his game.

3. Does relying on a coach really help? Andy Roddick seems to rely on his coach, Federer doesn't. no matter who coaches Gaston Gaudio, he's eventually going to end up in an asylum muttering about lost opportunity.

sorry if these questions are dumb, and even more sorry if this ends up being Rafa vs. Roger, i didn't intend it to be either.

Federer is so good, he doesn't need a coach now.

For example look at Kolya, there are numerous areas of his game which he could improve. If he got another coach, he could be a better all-round player.
