Amanda Coetzer

It was great seeing her again in the final, cheering on Serena. (to my surprise!) Does anyone know some sort of history she has with the Williams Sisters. I remember watching her in 2001 in the same court against Venus to lose 8-6 in the third!

Re: Amanda Coetzer

There was never bad blood.

Amanda's always been involved with SA charities, as is Serena. Plus, I think Zina had something to do with the familiarity as well.

Re: Amanda Coetzer

Serena even talked to Amanda at the presentation... her husband looks like her father!

Venus won the match 8-6 against amanda in 2001 qf

Re: Amanda Coetzer

She was sitting in the row above Venus but Venus was still taller when they stood up, which is why I didn't even see her until someone noticed she was there.

I was watching that QF a few days ago, Amanda played so aggressively!

Re: Amanda Coetzer

Arnon Milchan(Big shot Hollywood producer and tennis sponsor), who is Amanda's billionaire husband is a major sponsor of Serena and Venus, back in the day when they were still kids, he sponsored them, he is the one who believed in them from the beginning. Once he and Amanda got together, she became really close friends with the Williams family. On top of that I believe Amanda's old coach(not sure what his name was) is helping out with the William sister's tennis game, at least the physical aspect. Also I believe Amanda and Serena are working on the same charity with Arnon. I believe they are all great friends and Amanda was invited to the Australian as a special guest of the Williams family. I remember reading that Amanda and her husband spent a holiday with the Williams, so they must be close.
I wonder if anyone has some pictures from today of Amanda, I did not see her, maybe I have forgotten what she looked like. LOL

And the match versus Venus was the Australian Open 2001 QF.

I miss Amanda her game was intense running! I saw some of her matches and she was beating Graf and all the top players which was awesome! Especially for her size!

I think Amanda Coetzer was the shortest player ever in the top 20?. Only 157m and she still had game, she had great court finesse, the Caro Wozniacki's(who is 20 cm taller) of today could learn a thing or two about tennis from people like Amanda.

Re: Amanda Coetzer

Venus looks massive in that photo (as in so tall) and so hot; love the hair. And of course it's fab to see Amanda again, and cheering on Serena! She looks only marginally older than when she retired!

Halep Venus
Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens
Kvitova

Re: Amanda Coetzer

Venus is a friggin' physical specimen. If you look at the game today, it's safe to say, she was the prototype.

Amanda Coetzer

Just had a quick scan of the threads & didn't notice this question, apologies if it's been posted.
Just wondering why Amanda Coetzer was in Serena's camp in the final last night?
