Coating Kei Nishikori at Davis cup.

Every once in a great while, an athlete comes along who is not only gifted, but is also talented, smart, and a hard worker.

I recall vividly the first time I saw Kei in Tokyo.  It was during the selection process, and I knew instantly that this kid was special.

It always excites me when I have the opportunity to work with a player who pushes my buttons and forces me to work harder as a coach.  Kei embodied this attitude, and that gave me the satisfaction and motivation to take him to the top.  Before I left Kei, he was on track to become the #1 player in the world.

I have always said, and still do, that to become a good coach, you must have three things:

1) a good wife

2) a loyal staff

3) an incredibly talented player.

Kei was the type of player that every coach dreams about.
