Roger Federer Is Again Searching For a New Coach

Roger Federer is again looking for another coach as Jose Higueras is the new USTAs Director of Coaching for Elite Player Development. Higueras was employed by Federer to improve his results in the clay court season.

The new person tipped for the job is of course Aussie Darren Cahill. Cahill guided Lleyton Hewitt to the top of his game and then helped Agassi make a major comeback late in his career. However, Las Vegas-based Cahill, currently a television analyst with ESPN, has been a long-term coaching target of Federer ever since he split with Peter Lundgren at the end of 2003. The Adelaide-born Aussie was a close friend of the late Peter Carter, Federer’s coach during his formative years who was tragically killed in a South African road accident.

i would love 2c darren cahill become roger federers coach. either him or andre agassi. i’m not an expert but it seems to me that roger has trouble w/grinders like simon, djokovic, nadal, of course, and murray. maybe fresh eyes can help roger to regain #1 ranking. i think roger is the best tennis player ever. i would love 2c him win australian, french, wimbledon, and us open, but i would be happy w/3 of 4.
