I think its one of the sites we can't link. You also have to pay for a subscription, so if someone could summarize the article that would be nice.

Yeah, he was watching some of her matches at the Aus Open last year. I guess he's talked to her about it before too.

Wasn't he already coaching her a bit before he got with Roddick? :confused: This wouldn't come as a huge surprise, although blech. I like her, I don't like Brad. But, if he can do something for her, I will try to tolerate him.

Brad Gilbert is overrated. Besides, he charges big money for his coaching. I say Tatiana is better off finding a more down-to-earth person to coach her.

I don't like the guy at all because he has a big nasty mouth, but he has proved himself with Andy and Andre.;)

why can't he just take a junior (an unranked or very low ranked player) and help him/her to get to the top? :rolleyes: I mean he does consider himself a good coach, right?

He's been working with Tatiana on and off since 2002, just never as a full-time coach.

He worked with her for couple of weeks or so and then got Andy's contract. I don't think he has ANYTHING to do with Tatiana development and/or a breakthrough

He still hit with her and watched most of her matches when she played the same evevt as Andy. I think he's instilled a good deal of confidence in her, although her confidence comes elsewhere aswell (her mother, Bollitieri). Plus he is familiar with her game and they get along quite well
