Former World No.1 Lleyton Hewitt has parted ways with Tony Roche, after deciding that Nathan Healey would offer him a better chance for success.
Healey, who will coach Hewitt full-time, have known each other since their junior days and have played doubles together.
‘Nathan is a positive guy,’ Hewitt said.
‘He’s spent a lot of time around Rochey as well, the Davis Cup ties. He’s positive. We get along extremely well, which is a huge bonus.’
Hewitt, who is set to take on five-time defending champion Federer, is guaranteed to break into the top 30 and is well on track to reach his season goal of returning to the top 20 before the 2010 Australian Open.
