    J and A, of course. I'm a guy.
    For sure, I wouldn't want DelPo or Berdyck

    I'd probably want someone who does coaching for a living like Stefanki or Peter Lundgren.

    But for these choices, I'd probably choose Ferrer. Excluding the language barrier, he'd probably make sure I never give up when I play. I'd also become the fittest person in my area lol. Running 10ks for a warm-up ftw

    Nole for the solid % game with winning attitude + fitness + sense of humor + native language.

    However, I voted Ana... I wonder why?

    JuanM and Tomas would never hit full speed at a 63 year old lame guy who plays 4.0 level tennis.
    I'd have my hands full handling A and J anyways, and loving every minute of hit.

    Well move to Houston and you can have Peter Lundgren (or Nic Kroon) give you all the lessons you want for a few hundred$$$$$ per hour at the club he bought here last year.

    Federer if Serious.

    Georges for fun.

    Nadal would be the worst....hard to communicate in English. Plus the guy smiles too much.

    Based on the make up of this list who thinks that he OP is a 13 or 14yr old male?

  13. Gorgeous for me! You would be surprised of the positive influence a hot girl can have on your tennis. I heard of a college team in the states where their coach would arrange for their coaching sessions to be on at the same time as the cheerleading team for morale building within the team. At first it distracted the guys but then you would get them wearing the tightest tank tops grinding and grunting their way through the practice session in front of the girls!! Giving it everything with the rafa fistpumps etc :) And you know American girls love that shi$

    I'm not tall, just 5'11". Ana would be taller than me. Julia pretty high on the list, but MariaKrilenko is at the top of the list for my future tennis coach.

    Woz from those pictures, but in real life, and shorter hair, LiNa.
    Both play second fiddle to Krilenko, of course.

    My crystal ball tells me that Ferrer will be an awesome coach in the future, taking some guy all the way GOATdom.

    For me it was between Djokovic and Ferrer. I picked Ferrer. He's maximized his potential so he would be most helpful to somebody else I think. I get the feeling Federer has too much talent for his own good to coach someone. Berdych and Delpo don't really interest me, Nadal wouldn't have the technique to teach somebody else, and Murray is too emotionally unstable. For fun I'd get Ivanovic to coach me.

    If it's tennis to be coached, I pick SexiRogi (see my sig). If it's my favorite indoor "sport", numerous photo-enhanced posts in "Odds & Ends" by Mike Bulgalov have convinced me Kirilenko would be the optimal choice!
