Re: In need of a coach, again
"For Sears, who refused a one-year deal to coach Maria Kirilenko, of Russia, one of the best young players in the world, to become women’s head coach, that means an absolute dedication to the cause. He will be working with players on the cusp of the professional game and beyond, an area where the women’s game has disintegrated recently.
“We have a lot of work to do,” Sears, who will become Britain’s new Fed Cup captain, said. “No one is going to pretend we have a whole load of highly ranked players, so it’s a question first of getting the best from those we have and, crucially, working hard at the lower end of the scale as well.
