The 2001 Wimbledon winner Goran Ivanisevic has been working with Milos Raonic for more than a year. The Canadian player started his season on a good note losing to Lucas Pouille in the Australian Open semifinals, and in an interview to The Tennis Podcast, he spoke about how being focused mentally and calm helps Raonic to deliver better tennis in crunch moments.
'You have some guys like Andy (Murray) or Novak (Djokovic) yelling but they play better after that', said Ivanisevic. 'And he is the guy who starts yelling and plays worse. I do not care if you yelled me, I do not even hear, but it doesn't work.
He kind of goes down. I don't mind you yelling but win the match! This week he was not yelling and he was much more positive on the court. Ivanisevic also spoke about Murray: 'Andy would be a great coach. I don't know what he is gonna do, but let's say not everybody is for coaching.
Ivo is too big to be a coach, some guys cannot do it, some guys are doing it very well. Each player is different, this generation is different and I am really enjoying.' ALSO READ: Djokovic would beat Roger Federer in Australian Open final - Evert
