    Roddick Taps Stefanki as New Coach

    Never saw this coming.

    Roddick Taps Larry Stefanki as Head Coach



    November 20, 1:01pm GMT+5 by andyroddick.com

    Team Roddick is thrilled to announce that Larry Stefanki will be joining Andy on the road as his head coach.
    An Illinois native, Stefanki played on the ATP tour for nine years reaching a career high ranking of 35. He has trained an impressive roster of players including John McEnroe, Marcelo Rios, Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Tim Henman and most recently Fernando Gonzalez. Under his guidance both Rios and Kafelnikov reached the No. 1 ranking.

    The timing of this exciting new partnership provides the duo the majority of the off season to prepare for 2009.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Blah, blah, blah.

    Until Andy gets it's fixed between his ears, no coach is going to save his career.

    Hey! That's like a little poem!

    Hey! There's an idea. Let's write Andy Roddick poems.


    What part of Andy appeals most to Brooklyn Decker?
    Is it his brains, his body or his sizable...


    oh wait. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea after all
    Me and Flavia Pennetta, we got a thing going on

    There once was a young man named Roddick,
    Whose skull, it was said, was quite thick.
    But he needed some nerve,
    To go with that serve,
    And so Stefanki is his new pick.

    Seriously, I hope this turns out well for both of them. I'd like to see Andy make another serious run at a Slam title. I don't know much about Larry, but his brother Steve is a REALLY nice guy and a great teacher. I took lessons from him in Napa for years, during junior high and high school.

    I hope it works out for him but I have to agree with Kirkus that it's what's between his ears that needs fixing the most right now.

    Neat!


    (Now, why did you not stay in touch so that we could all have had free tickets to matches Larry's charges are playing?)

    Good for Andy. Too bad for Gonzo.

    If Stefanki knows the difference between a good approach and a bad approach--and when to approach--he can do nothing but help.

    It's worth a shot... for both of them.
