Apart from Muzza, did any other male player was ever trained by a woman?

Serious question or maybe not quite...

As for Muzza, I was thinking abt him and his mom, of course...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).


After losing to Nalbandian in 2005 TMC final...

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Yes, until he was 12. Then she sent him to Nikola Pilic.

yes. Jelena Gencic, a truly amazing woman. She has literally created both Djokovic and Seles. I read so much about her. She simply had that talent to recognize champions. AMAZING woman. She is very old, but she still works with kids. I was so happy when Nole gave her his W trophy. lots of men can learn so much from this lady.

Chesnokov was coached right up to the end of his career by a woman.

Chang was baby sat by his mother in his prime. His brother Carl was more a hitting partner.
