On-court coaching sparks creativity.
Posted by tennisplanet on September 12, 2010
Uncle Tony and his team were overheard the following on on-court coaching moving forward:
-Instead of looking at Nadal when delivering instructions, Tony will be looking at whoever is sitting next to him and deliver the sermon at a higher than normal decibel.
-Spectators will be planted across the stadium who will scream the tips – in Spanish – relayed via text or cell phone by Tony. If the umpire understands Spanish, the ‘planter’ is required to instantly transform into a streaker and personally deliver the message.
-Sign language is about to become even more complicated with fingers moving in and out of all kinds of available holes in the body and beyond. Xisca is advised not to sit next to Tony from now on.
-Whole new language is under construction for future generations.
-All umpires will be hand-delivered a note with an ‘offer they cannot refuse’ if all above fails.
