Patrick Rafter's coach?

Post by deeyou » Mon, 17 Aug 1998 04:00:00


How long has Patrick Rafter been working without a coach?

Who was his last full-time coach?  (other than his Davis Cup team coach)

Which player was it that lost his coach because, against his coaches
wishes, he played on a bad ankle at Wimbledon?

Thanks for helping me get my stories straight!?!

About a year and 3/4 I think. Don't take my (very vauge) word for it
though.

Greg Rusedski. I doubt that his playing was the only reason Tony Pickard
left though, apparently the main reason was some mysterious trip to Turkey
for a couple of days. Pickard said (quoting from memory) "but the final
straw was that for two days I didn't even know where he was."

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.

I was more concerned with that girl they kept showing in his box last week with
that coach, whoever he was. GOD, what a hottie she was!!!
