Interview in yesterday's paper in which Rusedski declined to say anything
much about the split with Pickard, and said only that he thought Pickard
had taught him a lot (or words to that effect). Pickard's comments at the
time made me think Pickard was under the impression that Rusedski worked
for him, rather than the other way round.
