Who has gone through the most coaches? (Name the coaches if you can)
And who needs to switch coaches?

Stosur has been through a lot. Gigi Fernandez (but never was going to be permanent) same with Bradtke (think its her) for this summer..

How many has Petrova had? I remember talk about how she swapped coaches often..

I think probably though it would be more lower ranked players, lots of the top players seem to find a good match and keep it. or a family member that they don't want to get rid of. Players with consistent coaches:(JHH, V&S, Hingis, Maria, Amelie,Lindsay has had a few, but doesn't shuffle them unnecessarily often.)

that's a lot of coaches that sam has been guided by :eek: i think it's best that she actually gets a full-time coach rather than a part-time one I say. that might actually help her get into the Top 10 at some point in her career if she has a full-time coach.

It's hard to find the right person to travel with you year after year.
Some players are always searching for the perfect coach.

Nadia probably changes coaches the most among the top 10.

Tati changes coaches a lot. Of course Nadia switches coaches all the time.
