Subject: Roger Federer on radar "is Cahill going to work with Federer?"
DARREN Cahill's decision to stand down as Davis Cup coach has
triggered speculation former world No. 1 Roger Federer is poised to
hire the South Australian.

Cahill, 43, is based in Las Vegas, where he retains a close working
association with former charge Andre Agassi.

Cahill and Gil Reyes, Agassi's conditioner, are helping Spain's
Fernando Verdasco prepare for US hardcourt and European claycourt
tournaments.

Cahill cited personal and business commitments as the reasons behind
his decision to stand down as Australia's Davis Cup coach.

But his sudden availability yesterday revived one of the most
persistent conspiracy theories in tennis: that Federer will recruit
Cahill.

Swiss world No. 2 Federer has previously worked with two Australian
coaches - Peter Carter and Tony Roche.

South Australian Carter was instrumental in Federer's development and
was set to become Switzerland's Davis Cup captain before he died in a
car accident in 2002.

And Sydney's Roche guided Federer to six of his 13 grand slam singles
titles between 2005 and 2007 before he was dumped by the Swiss
master.

Revered internationally, Cahill has achieved rare highs as a coach
after an excellent career as an injury-ravaged player.

Under his tutelage, Lleyton Hewitt became the youngest player to land
the season-ending world No. 1 ranking.

Agassi is the oldest player to regain the No. 1 ranking - and did so
when coached by Cahill.

Cahill yesterday could not be reached for comment.

++ He's been on both sides of the Federer fence, depends on the
event... he's been critical of Federer off and on... Roger doesn't
take criticism well, like almost every other tennis great... nothing
new there... I think Cahill's coaching is a bit too harsh for Federer,
from what I hear...

I have never heard him saying anything against Federer and it seems to
me that he likes Federer's game and wouldn't mine joining his team.

++ I wonder if Cahill has been scoping Feds out the last few years to
come to a conclusion if in fact Federer CAN BE COACHED in the way
Cahill would trying and coach him... Cahill has an awfully nice chair/
situation at ESPN... he'd be reluctant to give that up I would
think... UNLESS he had a VERY clear understanding with Federer and
even THEN it might not be possible...

Isn't there some story about Cahill and Federer not liking each
other ... ?

It sure has been a while since May 28, 2007 - and somehow I have a
feeling that being able to help a player break a slam milestone could
work as incentive...

"I don't think he (Federer) would have enough money to pay me," Cahill
told television station ESPN.
