Sorry Scott, I didn't mean to jump on you for posting that (and whoops I was on a different computer so posted as 'guest' by mistake). The plans on training with Roche were discussed ages ago, such as in Roger's press conference before he went to the UN/TMC in November, at least one of his TMC interviews, and even tennis-x was mentioning Roche-Federer relationship in October. I tried to find the pre-UN press conf write-ups on Swiss tennis, but unfortunately they're so old they've scrolled off the news list now.
All I'm saying is that I find it a bit strange to read all these "new" articles coming from the Australian press, when there's nothing really new in them, that's all. No doubt they are just trying to find something to write about in the run-up to the AO, and with Federer over there at the moment, they are hoping they will get some sort of story. I hope they do too.
