I agree ^ - it would be great to see him win.  He's 27 now and you just have to wonder how many more chances he might have and how long he will be at the top of his game.  Doug Spreen really does a great job with him physically.

Yeah the amount of weight he lost after Spreen came on board and also the increase in his physical training is visibly paying off. Was gutted for him  last year, you just thought he was going to get past Roger in that final. Oh well we'll have to wait and see, but I would love to see one of the 'older' lol players on the tour win the GS (apart from Roger) rather than all these 20odd year olds yes

I for one forgive your blasphemy, because I can't see Murray winning Wimbledon this year.  Current form apart, I think he'll have to win another Slam first to enable him to cope with all the ridiculous expectation piled on his young shoulders.  Have to say I shed a few tears for A-Rod last year I really, really wanted him to beat Federer.  How I'd feel about an Andy/Andy final though, is a different matter!

Re Roddick's weight loss ..... the story goes (as told by Roddick) that when Stefanki came on board one of the first things he asked Roddick was what he currently weighed and what he had weighed when he was winning titles - the difference apparently was something like 12 lbs, so Stefanki told him to get the 12 lbs off to start with etc etc etc ........

See Djokovic has dropped Todd Martin from his coaching team after 8 months and will work solely with his long-term trainer, Marian Vajda, because of communication problems, reportedly saying "You're always going to have problems like that when you work with two coaches.  They did not understand each other very well."

Think His form hasn't been too awful of late, I wonder what this could mean for him...

I think it means that he'll not have two coaches, who apparently didn't see eye to eye with each other (at least that's what I take the "communications problems" to mean) telling him different things and getting his head in a muddle.  Like Andy, something's been up with him recently on court.

What Djokovic? Yeah I understand that he'll be losing a coach, but what I mean is what difference will it have on his performance... I'd actually quite like to see him win another slam I think... There aren't enough to go around though!

If Djoko's had two coaches who've been at odds with each other, then that's bound to adversely affect his game.  Sticking to one coach makes sense to me, and that's why I'm not happy about Andy's set-up where he's got both Maclagan and Corretja as coaches.  Corretja is a clay-court specialist, and therefore can offer advice about playing on that surface, but having him around the rest of the time doesn't seem a good idea.  No matter how well the two coaches get on, there are bound to be conflicting opinions, and Andy doesn't need that right now.

Mmm I have considered the fact that he has multiple coaches but to be fair it's hard to criticise when he has just reached the final of a grand slam... And I'm pretty sure that last year besides the UO he improved on all his GS performances and had one of his most succesful years, so to be fair, it must be working for him!

It used to work for him, I believe. But I think he was given this coddling mentality with all these guys around him. Perhaps it's just not the correct formula anymore.

As for Djokovic, I feel that he has been in a slump for a while. If memory serves correctly, he hasn't even been in a Slam final since 08, in the AO, which he won.

Mmm frankly I think it's Coretja... Don't trust the buggar one little bit, but I'm hard pushed to blame him for anything since he did have his most succesful clay season with him in tow Think And to be honest I feel like probably, excluding Coretja, it's a bit three-musketeery with those guys, if one goes they all go... So if it's a subtle change he's after, I don't think it will happen, it's a massive shake up or not at all.
And yeah Djokovic is a fail.

Since the AO nothing seems to have been working for Andy and that's why I think having two coaches is not a good idea at the moment.

Anyway I'm off to bed now.  Bye!
