Just weeks before 'that' tournament, with Federer having conquered all but the French (before Roche joined), it's hard to imagine that the Aussie was not in the camp to get that title on the mantelpiece. How difficult it must be for a player of Federer's standing to put his faith in a coach, even one with such an exemplary history, in order to achieve what still eludes him.

It must be difficult to listen and trust someone else to help make you better when you are already going so good. Tiger Woods did exactly that several years ago when he was already the most dominant golfer ever seen, changing his swing to ensure he would have longevity, and in the process taking the risk that his rhythm would desert him. I wonder what game plan Roger will bring to Roland Garros this year.
