And how long this kid will be ruled by UNCLE ? Didn't he grow up already? And it is interesting how much does he pay to his lovely Uncle ? I'll not surprise if hear that lovely Uncle and parents leave to the kid just changes.

we have a saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it."

so far, the coaching has not broken (he's number 1) but the knees have :)

very idiotic posting OP, yeah let's change the coach because nadal's knees have gone to the ******* and he's going thru his parents divorce issues.

*bravo* keep the threads coming.

^^^ What an idea! Change coaches after he gets you to #1 at no cost. Brilliant.

This suggestion really belongs in the "Epic Fail" thread.

Rafa pays him squat. Uncle toni gets his dough from the businesses he owns with Rafa's father.

I think Nadal has made the very best out of what he was given, and Toni has been a big part of it.

Parents are divorsing because they became rich, as I suspect. I heard such divorses in many famous tennis-players families: Williams sisters is one of them, say Myskina family and etc... Fathers and Mothers can't divide money earned by kids or start looking adventures at another sides feeling money...

It is not idiotic thread. Despite he is number 1 I didn't observe any progress in Nadals game except great natural endurance which was gifted him by nature, not by his uncle. But anendurance is not endless.

And it became so unnoying to watch his uncle at matches, he makes me nervous. Nadal without his uncle on stands would look much better.

Toni is great and a steady figure in Rafa's tennis career. Never change a winning horse.... plus Rafa probably needs him now more than even. Stability, not change. Toni even applauds when Roger hits goods shots against Rafa...he's a genuine guy through and through....a good coach and does it for free, what more can you ask for? He's in it for Rafa, not the money. Where do you find that nowdays?

I find this thread very silly, just because Nadal is injured and therefore can't play his best doesn't mean its the coach's fault.

Toni has done a superb job with Nadal, he should stay with him for the foreseeing future.

He doesn't pay his uncle. Nadal's father runs the family business (which belongs to Toni too) and Toni takes care of Rafa. There is no formal money arrangement for coaching (according to Toni).

i dont see why he needs to change a coach? Toni has been great to nadal. look at nadal's success and career!! there is no reason to get a new coach.

That is not true, as Federer has pointed out. He has had several coaches, and for the French his coach/hitting partner was Luthi.

You were right he doesn't have 1 formal coach. But it doesn't mean he doesn't have coaching. He could also be browsing the Tips section here for advice, that would also be getting coaching.

A guy that doesn't cry on court can't man up.He's already man enough.

Let me know when he can win 3 slams in a year.

I feel that Toni has done a great job with Rafa. I don't think it's prudent to replace him. That said, getting an additional coach might help (somebody in lieu of Roig) an expert who can coach Nadal on specific issues like net-play, serve etc.

Shouldn't the #1 player be coached by someone who was a top player himself?
I'm not a big fan of uncle Toni: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE_RqaEsBiM

Nadal, for a player known for having great mental strength on court, has absolutely no balls when it comes to off-court issues. Super humble, still lives with his parents, worships Federer, etc. He even switched to those polos because Nike told him to.
