Just to answer the previous poster - re French Open success and UK Open failure - that happpens in real life too - a lot of guys who win the French cannot win on grass (Kuerten, Ferrero, Nadal - until last year, Bruguera, Gaudio, Coria), and vice versa as well - Ancic, Roddick, Ivanisevic etc, who have all done well at Wimbledon, have never done any good at Roland Garros.

Its just that at the moment, some of them are a little unrealistic - I just had Korolev (ranked 4, won French Open in previous year) set me the goal of winning another slam, but not falling below 7 at any point. About 6 weeks later, he reaches the QF of the French, loses a lot of ranking points, so goes to 8 in the rankings, and after Wimbledon (UK Open) he leaves my employ. Now in 15 months that I had coached him, he had gone from ranking 40 to 8 (via 4) winning a Slam - a player is NOT gonna fire their coach at that point!!
Also - on the "win a tournament" condition - maybe another option on there might be "or reach 3 finals"
Maybe its just me - but I'd like to coach the same players for 4-5 years, not keep changing. There should be some way of keeping the players if their goal is only just failed, or they do really well in another area - ie doubles - that was the other thing with Korolev - he'd won 2 double Slams, was ranked No 1 in doubles as well when he fired me.
