And what’s next from Serena ? She will have the right to breastfeed her child on court.

This madness has to stop...

Re: Serena rule: Coaching from the stands allowed at US Open

I think this is a bad Idea. Nowadays Tennis is still an Individual Sport which means Players need to figure out themselves how to beat the Opponent. Now we get this sort of crap. It takes the spark out of the Matches.

Re: Serena rule: Coaching from the stands allowed at US Open

They were testing on-court coaching in qualies/juniors back in 2017, long before Mouratoglou decided to be a buffoon.

Serve clocks, in-game coaching headline 2017 innovations

Using Serena's name in these headlines is a stretch. But I guess these journalists need to get their clicks....

Embarrassing.

And ironically, this rule change benefits pretty much every player more so than Serena, who was always mentally tough and smart enough to figure matches out on her own. When she loses because she gets out-coached, everyone is gonna celebrate lmao

Wasn't she adamant that she didn't get coaching cuz she's a mother?

Mothers should be allowed to check on their babies in between sets too. Otherwise it's sexist.
