Roger Federer’s part-time coach, Jose Higueras, was hired by the U.S. Tennis Association earlier this week as director of coaching for elite player development, a program that aims to identify future champions.
“Jose is one of the greatest minds in coaching today,” said Patrick McEnroe, the U.S. Davis Cup captain and general manager of the development program.Higueras will work at USTA training centres in California and Florida. As a coach, he helped Michael Chang and Jim Courier win Grand Slam titles, and he also worked with Pete Sampras, Jennifer Capriati, Todd Martin and Robby Ginepri.
“His understanding of the sport is unrivaled, and his familiarity with American tennis makes him an invaluable asset and important addition to our staff as we continue to develop the skills of the brightest young talents in tennis.”
Higueras began working off-and-on with Federer this season and was at the U.S. Open this month when the Swiss star won his 13th major singles championship.
The question now is, who is Federer's new coach?
