Here's what Fed had to say about his recent breakup:
“It was good, we had a good time, we worked hard, we spoke a lot,'' Federer said.
“But we decided we weren't going to do it.''
Federer said the big stumbling block proved to be the travel, which after some thought Cahill decided he didn't want to undertake as a fulltime coach.
“He said the travel was tough for him,'' Federer said. “He took the decision for me.''
Cahill, a former mentor of Andre Agassi and Lleyton Hewitt, stood down last month as coach of the Australian Davis Cup team after two years in the job citing “business and personal reasons.''
Federer will continue to work with Severin Luthi, Switzerland's Davis Cup captain, on a part-time basis.
“He's the Davis Cup captain and we've been working the last one and a half years together. So nothing really changes,'' said Federer, who is seeded second here behind world No.1 and defending champion Rafael Nadal of Spain.
“I just continue with the great team that I have.''
Aw, it's ok Fed. You'll always have Yok...i mean Mirka by your side.
Also, does anyone else automatically think Luthi's a horrible person because his name sounds like Slitherin? Just me? Ok.
