Best coaches on tour?

Carlos Rodriguez and Michael Joyce come to mind obviously. However seeing how they exclusively worked only with their protegees may leave space for discussion. Anyone else worth-mentioning?

Carlos may be the best coach for Justine. This doesn't make him the best coach for another player too.

Re: Best coaches on tour?

deffinately not daddy chakvetadze or mummy vera, i realy wish anna and lena d would get some proper outside help. im sure it would help both, theres only so much a parent can help.

joyce is better than carlos as he is calmer. i think joyce is great for maria, he is always calm when he comes on court. i can just see yuri coming on for oncourt coaching screaming, making death signals, shouting at her opponent.

Oracene Williams on the encouragement front as well as Yuri Sharapov and Carlos Rodriguez.

Technical coaches, you've got them right on in Michael Joyce and Carlos Rodriguez, and Melanie Molitor when she had Hingis to coach.

Re: Best coaches on tour?

May I mention Robert Radwanski. He prepared two very average and very different girls
to great international career

He told Maria that she's hitting too much to Vera's backhand, that she needs to come to net more and not to worry about getting passed, and that she needs to just focus on what she's doing. Oh, and something about the ball toss that I didn't quite catch.

Carlos never comes on court, so you can't compare them at that point
