Does this mean that Peak Pierce is also unbeatable as a coach?

Is she doing it because of money? This girl doesn't seem to be good at all.

Mary is close to Emmanuelle de Beer's parents. She considers Emmanuelle de Beer like her own daughter, has worked with her for 7 years and asked IMG to support the new team as she also lives in Florida.

Mary Pierce accompagne Emmanuelle de Beer depuis 5 ans. « Elle est un peu comme mon enfant », lâche-t-elle avec un large sourire.

Mary Pierce a mis fin à sa carrière en 2006 après une blessure au genou. Elle partage aujourd'hui sa vie entre l'Ile Maurice et la Floride où elle entraîne deux jeunes Mauritiens Emmanuelle et Amaury de Beer qui ont l'ambition de passer pro.

Pierce Now Coaching in Mauritius

Former Australian Open and Roland Garros champion Mary Pierce has not played since suffering a horrific knee injury while playing Vera Zvonareva in a late-night match at the Generali Ladies tournament in Linz back in October 2006.

Now residing in Mauritius, she has recently been spending time at the ITF Southern African Training Centre in Pretoria, South Africa, sharing her experiences with the coaches and players at the Center after traveling to the ITF Centre with Emmanuelle de Beer, who finished sixth at the recent African Junior Championships and hails from her new homeland.

Am I the only one who thinks she won't be too good as a coach? I never felt that she had a particularly holistic understanding of the game as a whole. She would hit the ball as hard as possible and play her game regardless of what the opponent does.

It may have seemed she hit the ball as hard as possible but she could actually unleash way harder ground strokes similiar to Serena so she had that extra gear if everything was clicking and her range was right. She was often injured and struggled with her weight but in 2005 she suddenly found greater consistancy and pretty much had wins over everyone big in the game from 04 to 06 (maybe not Serena but everyone else of note). Shame she got that career ending injury when she was so close to the top.
