Why are there so many men coaching women’s sports and so few women coaching at all?
Andy Murray, the third-ranked men’s tennis player in the world, has been coached by Amelie Mauresmo for about a year. He’s the only top-50 men’s tennis player coached by a woman. Murray recently told RedBulletin magazine that he thinks that needs to change.
“I’ve actually become very passionate about getting more women in sport, giving women more opportunities. When I was younger, I wasn’t thinking about stuff like that. But now I’ve seen it with my own eyes, it’s quite amazing how few female coaches there are across any sport.”
