What is your opinion about the new court ruling for coaches allowed by the WTA in 2009?
WTA Coaches will be allowed/obligated to visit their players once per set, and only during the allotted changeover time. They can also come on court when the opponent takes a medical break. Coaches must also agree to wear a microphone during the consultation, with their advice aired over the tv/radio.
I personally think it's a good initiative but it seems it's introduced by the WTA without consulting the WTA coaches :confused:

When I was growing up, I tended to gravitate toward team sports. I like the idea of a knowlegable coach helping out the athletes.
