Well, I think any coach is better than no coach at all....
I hope Kim will enjoy her game again @ Wimbledon

weird, the reason Mair and Babsi spilt at the end of last year was because his wife was pregnant and he didn't want to travel on the tour and he now he is coaching Kim?

Is this just for Wimbledon? Or is it more long-term?

In today's newspaper Lei Clijsters says that they really want to have a new coach before the USopen. He doesn't want the best coach in the world, but the best coach for Kim and he will be most likely Flemish.
Their first choice seems to be Marc Dehous. (he already replaced Carl Maes for a little while). Second seems to be Christophe Thijs.

I hope they find the perfect coach for Kim!

Thanks for the info!

The sooner they find a good coach, the better imo.
