  • Serena’s coach pleads for honest, open on-court coaching

Although Mouratoglou did not directly address Williams' meltdown in a column in the latest edition of Britain's Tennishead magazine, he wrote: "One very good thing has happened as a outcome of Serena Williams' experience in the US Open final: people throughout tennis are again discussing the whole issue of on-court coaching".

In September, Williams was charged with a code violation for receiving on-court coaching from Mouratoglou during the final match of the 2018 US Open.

As Mouratoglou's briefing also pointed out, tennis is unique among the major sports in its insistence that players must not be given direction during matches - with the exception of team competitions such as the Davis Cup or the lengthy trial of on-court coaching, allowed once per set, that has been running since 2009 on the women's tour.

The US Open has experimented with on-court coaching in qualifying and junior events and it's understood that the issue will be discussed on the sidelines of the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore next week. He also points out that coaching is already being allowed in many areas of the sport away from the Grand Slam tournaments. Penalized for apparently receiving illegal hand signals from her coach, the 23-time Grand Slam champion then earned additional punishment - not to mention a $17,000 fine - for smashing her racket and chastising Ramos as a "thief".

Serena Williams' coach Patrick Mouratoglou says in-match coaching should be allowed.

"Occasionally the players are punished for it, but for the most part they are not, because the federations are perfectly aware of the situation and don't ask umpires for a strict application of the rule".

Williams' coach tweeted his opposition to the current anti-coaching status quo on Thursday, releasing four central reasons for his disagreement.

"Of course the coaches are usually discreet in the way they give message to their players - they do it with signs or coded signals - but majority also communicate verbally", said Mouratoglou, the founder and president of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy in the south of France.

Mouratoglou also pointed to what he called a "hypocrisy" - players now are getting coached at tournaments that ban coaching. To attract new people, you need to get them emotionally involved.

Mouratoglou admitted to coaching Williams shortly after the match's conclusion, adding "Everybody does it - you all know it".

The Frenchman says on-court coaching "adds to the drama" of the sport.
