Good Read | With Every U.S. Open Victory, Andy Murray Advances Gender Equity
“Mauresmo was validated as a coach when Murray hired her, but every time he wins, she’s validated a little more, and that’s huge,” King said last week. “She will attract more women to coaching, and if we had more women like her in high-profile positions, it would be normal for every girl or guy coming up in the ranks to say, ‘You know, I’m going to work with a woman.’ But we don’t. So all eyes are on her.”
While we love that women are gaining a higher profile in sports, and we're happy that Andy Murray hired a female tennis coach, it would have been nice to see an article about Amélie Mauresmo include her name in the headline.
