Don Candy did a tremendous job with Pam. He was well respected as a coach. Chris admitted once that when she was mired in her losing streak to Martina she sought out his advice. Players and coaches spent so much time together back in those days and some never minded asking for or giving advice. Probably wasn't a big deal back in those days.
