    pretty interesting who she ended up marrying (I remember her dating Brady Anderson the baseball player for a while)...from tennis.com....

    "MR. COETZER THE SPY Retired South African pro Amanda Coetzer's husband is Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan. On Tuesday, he came clean as a one-time spy who aided Israel in securing its nuclear arsenal. The man is a big timer away from the weapons, too: His blockbuster, scandalous, and Oscar-baiting credits include Pretty Woman, L.A. Confidential, and ... Natural Born Killers. Thus by proxy even, this earns Coetzer the honor of Least Boring Post-Professional Life. For now."

    I'm sure it was his winning personality that attracted her...

    She could definitely hit the ball.

    She was a great player, so focused, never saw her get upset or lose her cool. A true ice maiden.

    Really this guy admitted to spying for Israel? Jonathan Pollard got caught spying for Israel and selling our secrets and is still serving life in prison. Why isn't Milchan arrested and jailed?

    Is that why he fell in love with her, because she beat the top German?

    She was a really good player. I used to root for her when she played. Nice game and extremely quick with good footwork.

    There is nothing illegal about being a former foreign intelligence officer in the United States. Pollard was an American citizen with access to classified documents. This is a completely different situation.

    It is interesting that Israeli and South African intelligence have a long relationship. I met Coetzer at La Costa in the 1990s. She couldn't have been much taller than five feet.

    Both countries were surrounded by many regional enemies, so no question they needed to cooperate.They happened to be the only developed and westernized countries in such geostrategical areas a Middle East and the Southe of Africa...you know, Cape Town, Ormuz...
