I disagree. Top players dont need coaches all the time, Fed didn't have one for yonks. If he doesn't know what needs to be done by now then he doesn't deserve to be a top ten player. He's always been pretty tennis savvy, the basics are there. A coach isn't going to make much difference in the short term.
Far better to wait and get the right one.
My memory may be wrong, but wasn't Andy without a coach for a while after he dumped Petchey and before he demanded Gilbert, during which time he won his first ATP title?
Andy needed the cocoon of the team. Young fun people that he got on with. He is more mature now and hungry and passionate for a slam.
He had a really great Wimbledon and I would imagine that was more to do with Correctja than Miles. If something isn't working - change it. Expired - toss it out.
Fed ex is even looking for a coach because if the recent downturn in is game.
A good definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result. I'm glad Andy is too smart for that. His game can't stand still - it improves or tanks. Only so many years reach the top!
Once the talk of Miles being sacked after W. were denied by Andy's camp, I was convinced there was going to be a shuffle behind the scenes.
My sentiments exactly. Cosy cocoons and fun don't win you GSs. I've felt for the last year that his career has stuck and I'm more optimistic than ever that, with Miles gone, his chances of winning a GS soon have greatly increased, although I'm not sure Corretja is the right man for the long term. And, yes, usually when rumours are denied then there's a 99.9% chance that there's a grain of truth in them.
"As part of Team Adidas, Murray is free to use their unique coaching set-up, which includes both Darren Cahill, who coached Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi to world No.1, and Sven Groeneveld, the former coach of Greg Rusedski."
Don't know about Groeneveld, but Cahill is reportedly tied up with Fernando Gonzalez just now.
