The both sides agreed on the end of the cooperation that began in 2015. In Tsitsipas' team remains his father Apostolos and the finalist of two Grand Slams Mark Philippoussis.

It can't happen obviously, but if you put Djokovic's coaching staff with Tsitsipas, I wonder what would happen....

Simona linked up with Patrick and was immediately busted for PED use. He's a broker...you don't go with him unless that's what you're after
Thanks for outing Holger as a doper. Lovely you have the inside info!

Oh...and it's incredibly naive to think any pro tennis player needs a "broker" to get their stash. Most of them are on PED's and they're not knocking on Patrick's door. Any random door will do.

As long as Apostolos is still in the team, it won't do Tsitsipas any good. He's giving too much information overload to Tsitsipas' limited RAM. Tsitsipas probably runs on 16 GB RAM but Apostolos makes him run 1000 3D programs simultaneously which often results in Tsitsipas having a fatal error because he can't process too much information in one go. What makes things worse is that Tsitsipas is already overloaded with internet so you don't want to make him even more overloaded.

During United Cup we can see how Apostolos couldn't stop talking and giving him continuous commands and I was worried that Tsitsipas would explode or freeze.

He needs a coach that can simplify things and don't overload him with too much pointers. He needs more meditation and less social media.

Like anything else there are levels to it. The players, coaches etc may not have knowledge/access to the same stuff a big coach with his own training facilities etc does. Patrick has tons of money, his Dad is one of the richest men in Paris.

It's also naive to think that it was a coincidence that Simona got busted right after linking up with him.

I'm beginning to think the Mom might be the problem. She actually calls the shots and is the quiet one in public.

How do you know this?

I think it was one of the commentators that doesn't suck.

Makes sense from the eye test. She is impassive, imperious. Almost never says anything in the box.

"The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room"--that's Apostolos

Mom is the iron lady.

Halep situation is somewhat different. She took more risk.

She fired literally everyone in her team (even her agent) and replaced them with Mouratoglou's people.

The ATP players --both Tsi and Holger-- never did such a thing. They retained their longtime crew and complimented that with Toglou's assistant coaches, hitting partners or whatever — and of course use Toglolu's state of the art academy complex in the French Riviera (very convenient for tennis players based in Monaco / South of France). So their coaching relationship with Toglou is/was somewhat more normal or conventional.

They didn't go "all in" like Simo. She did something that I don't think happens often at the top elite level of tennis. She replaced everyone. Maybe she was lured in by a discount or other kind of lucrative deal ("you get a bonus for each crew member you replace with our people")

Mouratoglou fired Tsitsipas the same way several women have broken-up with Leonardo DiCaprio...

Not sure what Tsitsi is getting out of Mark Philippoussis either. The guy was a known more for his womanising than his tennis. Surely it has to do more than just the superficial Greek connection.

"Sense of humor" is what Scud brings to the team. Stef was asked, and that was his answer. I think Mahk lightens the mood between Stef and his parents, which is obviously filled with tension. Aren't his parents divorced as well?

Is there any news about Halep provisional suspension?
