Roddick Will Try Gilbert

June 04, 2003|From Associated Press

PARIS — Andy Roddick is going to try working with Andre Agassi's former coach.

Roddick will get ready for Wimbledon under the guidance of Brad Gilbert, the former tour pro Agassi left early last year. A spokeswoman for Roddick said it's not a permanent move yet.

Roddick split with coach Tarik Benhabiles after a second straight opening-round loss at the French Open. They spent four years together, during which Roddick won six titles and reached a career-high ATP ranking of No. 5.

When Roddick lost in the first round at the French Open last week, he responded to a question about needing a new coach by saying, "Every time I lose, it's a coaching change. I love it. You guys just won't quit."
