Carl has given an interview to Flemish TV.
Overall, he said that he stops the coaching of Kim with immediate effect. So he won't be her coach neither in Rosmalen, nor Wimbledon.
Lleyton's coach, Jason Stoltenberg, will take over for the time being, in order to help Kim bridging the period until she has a new coach.
He said that they have had a splendid 7 years together.
He felt that it was becoming an empty existence, and had mentioned that feeling several times in the past.
He also added that he would have stopped earlier, if it wouldn't have been for Kim. Because of Kim, he stayed on these many years.
He added that the challenge was gone, as Kim has reached already an enormous high level, and that working one-on-one with a player was becoming a little bit too dull.
He reaffirmed that he didn't quit neither because of the latest results, nor that Kim would have someone else in mind, or nor because that he would have some offer from another player.
He now wants to take some time off, some sabbatical weeks, and finally think about himself first, instead of for someone else.
Note: this is no transcript of the interview, as I didn't had the time.
