    Most coaches seem to stay with just one player, but there are a few who take on more than one person. I believe Pistolesi was one so I'm curious to know how many coaches take on more than one pro player.

    There was a time that Puerta´s father used to coach his son and Chela. That was around the year 2000, I think.

    At least he doesn't have to coach his son for a while.

    I know last year Horacio de la Peña was coaching Fernando Gonzalez, Paul Capdeville, and Adrian Garcia ... all at the same time. but I don't think he's coaching any of them anymore since he ended it with Gonzalez who 's now coached by Larry Stefanki

    Those coaches are like..hmm..how do I say it that it doesn't turn into ****** :mrgreen:
    I mean you have a certain amount of top coaches and pros just switch them...work with them for some time, then decide they want someone new(who's probably coaching some other pro at that time), then go back to the old one (like Coria recently did, after firing his 2005 team and going back to his old coaches). Then the fired coach finds himself a new player (or it's the other way around!?) and so on, and on...

    Personally what I don't get is..firing an old coach for some reason, and then getting back with him!?
