Marcos departed for Los Angeles on Thursday and was joined by his new coach, Guillaume Peyre. The two have reunited in time for the Olympus US Open Series, with the Farmers Classic in LA up first next week.
Marcos worked with Peyre during the most successful time of his tennis career, when he reached the Australian Open final in 2006 at the age of 20. In his book, “Marcos Baghdatis”, which you will very shortly be able to buy through this web site, Marcos described Peyre as:
“He is a sort of guardian angel and a friend as much as a coach. Guillaume and I have the same goal, and he always puts me back on course. When I play, I know that I will meet his trusting and confident gaze. I gain strength from his presence. I have a lot of respect for him and I know he is one of the best trainers on the circuit.”
The Farmers Classic, an ATP World Tour 250 tournament, begins on Monday in LA. We’ll have an update on the draw for you when it is released this weekend.
