Federer and Annacone End |Coaching Relationship

12.10.2013 | Off Court, Starseite 3

After a terrific 3 ½ years working together, Paul and I have decided to move on to the next chapter in our professional lives. When we started together we had a vision of a 3 year plan to win another Grand Slam title and get back to the number #1 ranking. Along with many other goals and great memories, these 2 main goals were achieved. After numerous conversations culminating at the end of our most recent training block, we felt like this was the best time and path for both of us. Paul remains a dear friend, and we both look forward to continuing our friendship. I want to thank Paul for his help and the value he has added to me and my team.

Roger: I do beleive that everyone loves you for your kind manners and classy behaviour, that will always be there independent of you being an active player. This is to tell you that for now on, please just concentrate on tennis, no fashion weeks, no Twitter Q&As, leave those for september 2016, after retirement, as well as tennis players council. The other three take advantage of their free time to rest and practice more. You enjoy your daughters and then think tennis. Please GOAT.

***KEMNA
ON YOUR THEORY OF THE 'RIGHT' COACH FOR ROG :

"YOUR" COACH MUST KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT, MUST BE TELLING ROG SOMETHING NEW, MUST BE CONVINCING AND MUST MAKE SENSE TO ROGER, NOT TO US.

IF A COACH CAN DO THAT, OK BUT THIS KIND OF COACH MUST BE VERY VERY, VERY HARD TO FIND.

I WILL NOT BE SUPRISED IF HE DOESN'T EXIST.

ROG 'S TOO SMART FOR A "DO AS I SAY" COACH.

I EXPECT ROG TO SETTLE AND FOCUS QUIETLY WITHOUT A COACH IN THE NEXT 6 MONTHS.

ROG DOESN'T NEED A C

I fully agree with Pollerer. What Roger needs to win matches is determination and confidence, he has shown this in the past now he is lacking these qualities, it is up to him to build it up and I don't think a coach can do much

KEMNA***YOU'RE REALLY PRECIOUS, YOU SILLY DARLING

IF ANNACONE WAS A KISS AND TELL GUY, HE WOULD NEVER HAVE REC'D A COACHING OFFER FROM ROG IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I NEVER KISS AND TELL TOO, THAT WHY I HAD MORE GIRLFRIENDS THAN THERE ARE LETTERS IN THE ALPHABET, SO I SHOULD KNOW - ANNACONE DOESN'T KISS AND TELL.

LOVE YOU - YUKI :-)
