Lleyton Hewitt today dropped his long time coach, Darren Cahill today in a shock move. Cahill who has helped Lleyton win his first Grandslam and takeover the mantle of number 1, has apparently been informed by Hewitt's management company that his services are no longer required.

<br />I hope this is not the way it was done, it will not enhance Lleyton's profile in anyway

Why do stars always dump their longtime coaches after their successes> I don't understand it at all!! I hope what happen to Marcelo won't happen to Lleyton!

I guess success has got to his already big head , I hope it comes back to haunt him .

I would love to see him beg Cahill to return to coach him and Cahill publically says Up Yours to him on TV or in a press conference.

Nope, breakfast radio contacted Cahill this morning, He said he knew nothing about it. and it was the media trying to drum up negative stories against Lleyton.

By this afternoon, Cahill was saying it was a mutual decision. I guess his severence pay was upped to keep his positive silence.

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Lleyton Hewitt, the Australian tennis star ranked No. 1 in the world, said Friday that former player Jason Stoltenberg will replace Darren Cahill as his coach.

Stoltenberg, a former Wimbledon semifinalist and Australian Davis Cup member, will begin working with Hewitt before next month's Australian Open and will travel with the player throughout the year.

Cahill coached Hewitt for the past two years.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~

In any case, with or without changes in coaches, Hewitt will still have a tall order of maintaining his form going into 2002...<br /> <br /><center> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="mad.gif" border="0"> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

It's almost like a trend for the top dudes to swop coaches like sweatbands...with a few exceptions like Rafter [Roache], Agassi [Gilbert] and Guga [Passos]

They reported on Ten News tonight that it was a disagreement between Lleytons father and Cahill that caused the split.

Tennis Parenting rears its ugly head yet again.

Hey Glynn your son is 20 - I think it's time you stopped arguing with your sons coach or are you worried about your super fund?????

WOW! How old is this thread?!

I still don't know the details of the argument between Cahill and Glynn other than Glynn not talking to Cahill for most of the 2001 US Open
