Roddick hints at Connors partnership
LONDON, June 28 (Reuters) Andy Roddick today dropped a strong hint that he might turn to former champion Jimmy Connors to be his new coach.
''We've talked on the phone a couple of times,'' Roddick told reporters at Wimbledon after his hard-earned first round victory over Janko Tipsarevic.
''Nothing's going to happen here but we're both intrigued by the prospect of working together.
''We've bounced the idea off of each other. It's positive.
But there are a lot of details that go into it.'' Former US Open winner Roddick fired his coach Dean Goldfine in February and hired his older brother John but he has yet to reach a final this year and has slipped out of the world's top four.
''We haven't had a face to face conversation yet. Who knows if we will during this tournament. Obviously I have Wimbledon to play but it's not something that would be far-fetched in the future.'' Connors won five US Open titles, two Wimbledons and one Australian Open.
