Hingis. She seems to really understand the game in all aspects. She'd be good for teaching a young player good strategy and tactics.

Martina N. possibly... She's helped young players improve greatly by partnering with them in doubles.

True, but I think Hingis might be a little too arrogant to be a coach. I could totally see her saying, "You hit that good, but I did it better."

Alicia Molik
Martina Hingis
Mary Pierce

The ones who wouldn't:
Williams Sisters
All the Russians

Christine Marie Evert and Billie Jean King have both done some coaching in a manner of speaking and have had a positive impact, most ntably with Jennifer Capriati. I think Lindsay would make a great coach.
