Thanks

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

Hate it - get rid of it. The women can think for themselves, and if they can't, why are they playing?

Yeah seriously, they've got to end this madness. It was a fine experiment, yippee, the fans and tv networks got a nice kick out of it, now it's time to end it.

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

Terrible idea. Scrap it please. Experimenting was enough.

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

It's already widely used by Sharapova and others.

No reason to permit it.
That rule is a relict from the past

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

hate it, its stupid. Tennis is an individual sport and should remain that way, a player should be able to think themselves out of a match.

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

I hate how Tracy Austin keeps saying it's GREAT as a fan. No it goddamn isn't. 75% of the coaches and players dont even speak english, so all you get is a free lesson in czech or russian. And even then, what happens during changeoevers guys? Commercials! So all that stuff about it adding entertainment value is just chunks of crap.

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

Navratilova wants coaching. She said it's a part of other sports, and if it rains for 5 minutes, players talk to their coaches.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there

Only if they leave the court while it's raining they can officially talk to their coach.

Re: Women's Tennis Could Legalize Coaching

I just heard her interview yesterday, on the Howard Stern show.
She thinks it goes on all the time, and it's almost meaningless.
The player has to execute.
