Just curious as to which players have had romantic flings with their coaches and how it ended up. Share all details. Thanks.

I believe Meghann Shaughnessy (damn, can NEVER spell that name right) is engaged to hers....
He's coached her since she was 13... and I believe there were rumours of a relationship when she was still a minor.

Ewww I hope she wasn't a minor :eek: How much older is he?

Anyway I'm sure most have heard the rumours of Daniela and coach Nigel :eek: I doubt it's true though..

I'll tell you one thing, Melanie Molitor knew what she was doing when she remained Martina's coach because Martina would've been all over any coach if he was a man....


Wasn't Amelie involved with her coach?

Babsi nearly got married to one of her coaches.

Patty Schynder also got involved with her world famous coach the man from DelMonte

From Mr Ed, www.tennis-ontheline.com ...

Arizona resident Meghann Shaughnessy is one of the WTA’s more intriguing figures. After drawing her family’s ire by leaving home in her early teens with coach Rafael Font de Mora, to whom she later became engaged, the American became one of the tour’s rising stars in 2001, climbing to 11th spot in the world ranking.

Last year Shaughnessy slid backwards, playing mediocre tennis and falling to the 30s. The Arizona Republic, which is one of the rare sources of information about the usually secretive Shaughnessy, revealed this week that it was a year of turmoil on and off the court for her. Her controversial relationship with Font de Mora came to an end, as the two decided to part ways in every respect after the U.S. Open. "When you are together professionally and personally, where you separate the line is not easy," Font de Mora told the Arizona newspaper. "We were at a stage in life where we had to separate in both areas.”

However, Shaughnessy decided to return to Font de Mora -- but as a coach only -- toward the end of the season, and the results have finally started to come. Notably, she won the Canberra tournament and reached the Australian Open quarterfinals in January. And in Scottsdale she has performed well, knocking off Jelena Dokic (admittedly a popular sport these days) and reaching the semifinals.

We had noticed during the Australian Open that Meghann appeared to have transformed her physique, and Shaughnessy confirmed this in Scottsdale. In an effort to keep up with the power game now in vogue on the women’s tour, she has added 20 pounds of muscle to her formerly slender frame, and now pounds her serve at a more than respectable 115 mph. "I worked a bunch on strength, endurance, explosiveness, flexibility, injury prevention,” said Shaughnessy. “I spent hours in the gym every day and felt really confident starting the year."

If Meghann Shaughnessy keeps going in this direction, we would not be surprised to see her knocking at the door of the top ten before the year is out.

Lots of players. We'd be here all day if we listed them all :)
