On-Court Tennis Coaching: By the Numbers (Top 20 players)

How the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour’s top 20 singles players (as of 25 September) reacted to the on-court coaching trial in Montreal and New Haven:

1 Amelie Mauresmo – did not use
2 Justine Henin-Hardenne – did not use
3 Maria Sharapova – did not play in either tournament
4 Svetlana Kuznetsova – used five times in seven matches in Montreal and New Haven
5 Kim Clijsters – did not use
6 Elena Dementieva – did not use

8 Martina Hingis – used five times in five matches in Montreal

12 Lindsay Davenport – used once in four matches in New Haven

15 Ana Ivanovic – did not use
16 Jelena Jankovic – did not use
17 Anna-Lena Groenefeld – used three times in two matches in New Haven

19 Daniela Hantuchova – used eight times in two matches in New Haven

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

I've seen this before a while. 8 times in 2 matches cannot be correct, that is not even possible.

Danka.

You can't really blame her though.

Both of those matches were three-setters.

Daniela is clueless on court, so it's not surprising.

Lindsay must have used it in her opening match in New Haven, because all her other ones were televised and um, I don't remember her calling Adam down at all. Unless I'm missing something...

Yes, especially when you consider that she was without any coach in previous us hard-court tournaments. That is something every player would have problems to endure.

Melanie's always had a positive impact on Martina's attitude, though. That's why I think it particularly helps her.

Off Topic, but i have to say that Melanie has the biggest breast that i have seen. I almost died laughing when she walked across the court to Martina. How can Martina have such small boobs? And before anyone say it, yes iam a perve

I think it was because it wasn't televised that she called her coach down. I remember she told ESPN2 or something that she really didn't want other players to tape the match and if she told her coach that she felt she wasn't hitting her out wide forehands, then if she won, she would get a lot of out wide forehands in her next match. And because it was in English, so lots of other players would understand. (Like some do it in Spanish or Czech or whatever, so many don't understand what they're saying unless they come from that country) Sorry if I may be wrong, but that's how I looked at it.

Yeah I remember ESPN2 talking about that in one of her matches in New Haven. Makes sense when you think of it, it's surprising that Lindsay was one of the few players that voiced that concern.

I can see Martina wanting to see the close calls but she did say a few times she knew the ball was out but she would keep the vocal crowd happy and challange. I think the challanges where more for us fans then the players.
