Coach Patrick Mouratoglou Has Coached Tsitsipas To The Roland Garros SF.

Yes, yes, well done. Pity is, *he will continue to coach while the semi is going on*, as well.

The guy is weird, never seems to learn. His on court coaching was instrumental in that unseemly fracas involving Serena and Ramos at the USO '18. And yet he blithely continues on court coaching for Citypass. Hope he behaves himself.

He was caught coaching/cheating once at U.S. Open and has apparently stopped doing that... In any case, signalling does not particularly help a player.
Once a match starts and a player steps onto the court, he is on his own. Tennis is warfare.
Indeed, it is Guerilla Warfare, if you will.
That is the mindset one must have in order to have any chance of dethroning the King Of Clay.

Tsitsi's box was warned for coaching, at the AO QF match against Rafa. It wasn't clear if it was Patrick or Apostolos, but commentators were stating the former.

While I agree with you that it's upto the player to seize the moment and make it his own, and coaching/ instructions from the box have limited utility; that's all the more reason for Patrick/Apostolos to pipe down. They don't seem to fully agree. :-D

Some may knock the guy but he was sitting at Tsitsicrates matches when it was qualies. And he sits at juniors as well and not a lot of high profile coaches will spend their time doing that. They prefer to be with the current cash cows. This guy likes to keep a close watch on all his early stage investments.

Plus he comes Dr. Raul approved. (y)

Which box does Patrick sit in when Coco plays Serena?
:unsure:
I don't know. Have they played each other before ? And is he still connected to Serena ? It's always interesting when a coach (or agent) has an interest in both players. It's certainly happened before. Probably sticks with the early stage investment ? Or takes a pass on the match if it were to upset a player.

They were about to meet but Serena got upset in fourth round.
Watch him coach Serena on footwork. Also had an affair with her. Very hands on coach!

Despite dreams of becoming a professional tennis player when he was younger, Mouratoglou was finally able to break into the athletic world when he opened his eponymous tennis academy in 1996. The Academy is located in Sophia-Antipolis, France on the French Riviera and boast 20 courts, fitness and bodybuilding rooms as well as a on-site hotel and resort.

In addition to working with perspective athletes, the Academy also boasts an on-site school where players can even earn their high school diplomas. Mouratoglou also announced that he was expanding the business earlier this year with another 30-court facility slated to open next year.

Williams & Mouratoglou Have Been Rumored to Be in a Relationship For Years

To be fair, that is part of PM's job, to spot and nurture talent he thinks might work out well for the academy. Tsitispas was on the radar as soon as he turned pro.

I was complimenting him not criticizing him so I'm not sure why the "to be fair."

And I think PM must have had his hooks in him way before he turned pro. Waiting until a player turns pro is too late if you want top prospects. He was world #1 junior in 2016 and I think he turned pro after the USO. If you waited until then you were out of luck.

Tsitsy was on everyone's radar no later than 2014 when he was 16 (probably years earlier for someone like PM). He was world #1 junior in 2016 and I think he turned pro in 2016 after the USO. If you waited until 2016 you were probably out of luck.
Yeah but you’re complimenting him for doing something he should and is part of his job. It’s not like Tsitsy was an unheralded junior who PM took a big risk on

The compliment was not for recognizing Tsitsy's prospects which everyone did by the time he was 15 or so. It was for the way PM consistently shows up to support his players (not just Tsitsy).

You were wetting your pants when he was coaching/signalling Serena, but now it's apparently not too serious a crime.

The dude looks exactly like Jeremy Strong (Kendall from Succession) with amazing Southern European hair lol. I can’t unsee it
I don't know what "southern european hair" is supposed to mean. I am southern european, and what's left of my hair looks nothing like that (and there's nothing I can do about it). I do admit that the guy has some good looks, though.

When he was caught signalling he readily confessed there was a cheating signalling system in place between the two. When she was caught signalling she vehemently denied it to the umpire and held up the Grand Slam final for 15 minutes arguing the point. Told the umpire that she would never receive coaching. "That is not who I am! How dare you? I have a daughter!" Demanded that umpire apologize to her or that he would never be allowed to work her match again.

Made a complete fool of herself and made your favourite Osaka cry on the court. To this day she has not been called out on it. So you will just need to stop excusing her outrageous lies.
