    "I don't think it should be allowed. That's the great thing about our sport, once you are out there, it's a matter of doing what you need to do against your opponent and working it out for yourself," said Hewitt.


    One of my new favorite quotes.

    Coaches should be able to see the matches, but be sequestered away from being able to communicate with their players.

    It seems with signals and eye contact, a lot can be done to remind a player on court on what to do. That's why it's hard to slap fines on coaches because a lot of what they do is not blatant.

    That's good for players with money or players with intrusive relatives, they've earned an unfair advantage.

    ya but hewitt's exactly right. thats the beauty of tennis. when your out there all by yourself, you have no one to turn to or ask advice from... except yourself. brings up real champions. :cool:
