Wimbledon Tennis Champ Federer Splits from Swedish Coach


Wimbledon tennis champion and world number-two Roger Federer of Switzerland announced that he has split from his Swedish coach, Peter Lundgren, after three years. A statement on Federer's web site Tuesday said it was time for a change, and noted that Lundgren and Federer had gone far beyond the goals they set.

The men started began working together in 1998, and Lundgren officially became his coach in November 2000. At that point Roger Federer was number 30 in the ATP rankings.

The statement said Peter Lundgren had been more than a coach, but also a very close friend to Federer. Lundgren will continue to coach Switzerland's Davis Cup team, but Federer has not yet decided who will become his new coach.
