New coach thoughts?

Quote

Amelie has gone?  Since when?  Is this breaking news or something?  What a horrible way to find out.  Frown

He needs someone as stoic as Lendl but not Lendl himself. In that regard, i wouldn't choose someone like McEnroe or Connors, even though i would love them to take on the job. They are very volatile. Someone like Edberg would be good, he seems calm and balanced.

It would be amusing and somehow very Andy if he made an underwhelming appointment (say Tim Henman, lol) but then won three straight slams

I actually think TIm Henman would be a good choice. Anyone else?

I do , but he's said he never would , but never say never. I bet Greg Rusedski thinks it should be him Wink

Sounds like in the last few months Andy has been trying to rethink the technical aspects of his game so is searching from best sources and not having that in one coach nor in the team. Perhaps now he thinks that the need is for more basic support of looking at opponents for him etc and someone like Jamie D, who he seems to trust, might be all he needs? He has always been someone who sorts a his own tactics a lot of the time but it is always wise to have what a coach can bring to help him see what he wants to do?

My first thought was that I may have to come out of retirement.    wub

I only just found out when I saw the news headlines, but I have a feeling this was probably instigated by Amelie because I know she wasn't happy about Andy's on-court behaviour, and also maybe she just finds it too much now that she has a baby, plus being captain of the Fed Cup.

Jamie D sounds OK to me, provided that's what they both want.

I think all those reasons sound feasible.  Alas, we will never know.  I just wish he could settle with a coach for a bit longer but maybe it's for the best that he keeps things fresh with a new pair of eyes.

Mats Wilander, I know he is not liked on this forum, but he is an ex ATP number 1 with attitude!

I like him, dex.  Probably the only one on here!

McEnroe. That is all.

Actually, if he's going down the woman coach route again, I'd put Steffi's name into the ring.

Well it was always on the cards that Amelie might find travelling a problem after her baby was born, and Andy acknowledged at the time that he didn't know how she would feel after the birth.  Also I did wonder if something was going on when she showed up briefly in Madrid and then disappeared.

Anyway maybe Andy could pinch Boris from Djokovic?  Whistle
