Nicole Bradtke to Coach Sam
"Sam will come back up here just before Christmas, so I'll be with her through Gold Coast, Sydney and the (Australian) Open," Bradtke said. "Just someone to watch her matches, be in her corner, give a bit of moral support that she probably hasn't had for the last few months. Mind you, she's done exceptionally well without it."
(I'm not sure that it's really a good idea for the Fed Cup coach to be the personal coach of a team member, but I do think that it's good for Sam to have a coach.)
