Magnus Norman is back at the French Open these days to follow the younger Swedish players. Interviewed by Tages Anzeiger, the 42-year-old former world No. 2 said he plans to work with Stan Wawrinka for still a long time.
Nothing has been set on a contract level, but Norman said that starting from next week he will be with Wawrinka at the Queen's Club and then in the North American hard-court season, including the US Open. 'In New York, Stan should return at a good level', he assured. 'He only needs a little bit of practice session.
He is unbelievably motivated.' As for a physical matter, the knee problem suffered during the opening round match loss against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez is not there anymore. Already the day after the loss, Wawrinka is back to practice near the Geneva lake under his second coach Yannick Fattebert's guide.
It will be just Fattebert to replace Norman at Wimbledon, as in that period Magnus enjoys holidays with his family. The Swede also said that they are confident the knee will hold up during the grass-court events. ALSO READ: Mats Wilander makes big claim about Novak Djokovic's future
