Either way, a coach is only going to help a minor amount and how much is that minor amount? Enough to not lose 6-2 in a 5th set? Doubt it
I agree that he needs very little assistance to "work on his game". However, he may need someone to help support him through the tough times he's faced. I realize he has Mirka, but perhaps someone with tour experience can help strengthen the support system. You don't necessarily need someone with the answer when you're struggling - sometimes you just need someone willing to find it with you. A coach with experience could possibly offer the perspective he needs. Personally, I can't help but feel Roger looks and feels alone out there.
