Re Telegraph story that Dani walked out on Andy: I've not seen that anywhere else. It seems just as likely to me that it was a mutual decision, if things were no longer working as well as they did - perhaps indeed because Dani didn't enjoy working with Amelie for whatever reason.
While of course Dani is free to work with whomsoever he pleases, it leaves a nasty taste in the mouth for me that he's chosen to work with one of Andy's closest current rivals. I wish it had been with a younger up-and-coming player. And yes I'm sure Bird is still trying to lure Lendl into his camp; alternatively Lendl suggested the move to him. Either way I have to admit I don't like it.
I agree 100% with your posting
