2013 ITF rule change: on-court coaching allowed

According to the new rules, the ITF has decided to give tournament organizers the possibility to introduce on-court coaching. So apparently is up to each tournament to go ahead with this or not

http://www.itftennis.com/media/136148/136148.pdf

Case 3: Is a player allowed to receive on-court coaching during a match?
Decision: Sanctioning bodies may apply to the ITF to have on-court coaching allowed. In events where on-court coaching is allowed, designated coaches may enter the court and coach their players under procedures decided by the sanctioning body.

Re: 2013 ITF rule change: on-court coaching allowed

Given how few have travelling coaches, and those that do get coached all through matches anyway, it won't make a huge difference

Me either. It's sortof the equivalent of legalizing pot.

Although, I have to say, I did notice ONE warning last week at Port St. Lucie from the chair for coaching. Just one. That was surprising. I think it was Bencic, in her match with Muhammad, but I am not positive.

But the amount of chatter and hand gestures from coaches and fathers is pretty extreme, IMO. I was standing next to Abaza's coach in her match against Heidi El Tabakh, and the guy didn't shut up. Tomova's father is a motormouth, too. Whether it crosses the line or not, it's hard to say, but I'd rather have them have a hard and fast rule to do it on a changeover or between sets and then get penalized any other time rather than the way it is now.

Re: 2013 ITF rule change: on-court coaching allowed

Well, this is very interesting news!
It is very strange ITF leaves that up to tournament oraginzers to decide...

Has anybody seen on-court coaching on Womens ITF events so far?
