Miles is STAYING I'm sure. Laura and he has so much chemistry, things are going well..

Laura wouldn't even think of going near Nigel Sears.

Ps - Sean you need to update your avatar and sig! He has Wimby now

Is it really him though?

Yup it can be anybody. Plus "he" didn't say anything that it is not already known

It reads like PseudoFed. '"Miles"'. Of course, for all I know, Sven is PseudoFed. (Though I bought into the Judy Murray theory myself.)

Apparently Judy knows the person behind PseudoFed

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah I'm skeptical about whether that's Sven. It may be...but doesn't he have better things to do than post on TF? Just seems a little random.

I guess it's official now. They are staying together.

They're doing a mini training block and hopefully working on some new things. Miles seems to understand Laura and they have great chemistry. Something Krajan didn't have with her, for him it was "tennis, tennis" he didn't seem too bothered about Laura on a personal level. Which contributed to her awful losses this year, she was so depressed around court. Looked like she didn't even want to play.

I'm really excited about the coming weeks.

Not sure that can be read as being any more official than before...what else is she supposed to call him? 'My temporary-with-a-view-to-a-long-term-appointment coach'? I like Miles though, so would be totally behind him sticking around.

Seen news (via twitter) Laura's supposed to be going for a training camp in Vegas with Sven and the Adidas team along with Caro, Ana, Puig and Cirstea. So guess she's still working with them as well as Miles...

She said they'd only work together during the grass season. Nothing else was mentioned about doing anything else afterwards. The fact that she's still with him now, probably means it could be permanent.

Where did you find out about that training camp? I can't find that on twitter.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Scratch that actually, originally Matt Cronin sent out a tweet that looked as though he meant to message Sven, referring to the training camp and detailing that those players would be attending. Cronin deleted it later.

However have just seen that 10sball.com has posted:
Adidas PD will work with some players this week prior to the hard court season but that group won’t include adidas players Ivanovic, Caro Wozniacki or Laura Robson. The group will include Monica Puig, Sorana Cirstea and possibly Christina McHale. . .

Makes more sense to be working with Miles purely. Don't want conflicting influences.
