In football its between Mourinho and Guardiola or maybe Capello ... Never really thought who would be the greatest tennis coach of all time !
How many slams he needs to win with his player to be considered as one ?

Anacone did really well with Sampras and inspired his comeback in 2002 to win his 14th slam after everybody though pete is finished.
He is in the same situation with Roger today, dont you think ?
I think he is definitely a contender if he can manage Roger to win another slam.

On another subject which is a little bit related , do you think vaijda or Tony Nadal could be as successful with another player ?

Tony Roche has won the most majors as a coach. 7 with Lendl, 2 with Rafter and 6 with Federer.

Toni Nadal is the GOAT coach, he built a tennis player from scratch.

What do you mean from scratch? He had one of the most talented players from this era to work with.

That was John Newcombe. They do look alike, especially when Newcombe doesn't have his trademark moustache.
