MN on who she would enjoy coaching

Q.   If you could teach one player, which one would you pick?

Martina Navratilova:  Ahh, that's a very good question.  Of the crowd of
today?  Roger Federer, that would be easy - he's got it already.  And
Justine Henin, they both play a similar game I think, and I like the way
Justine uses the court, and exploit it further.  She I think would be the
most fun to coach with her ability and the way she plays the game already.

A little disappointing, that answer, although interesting.  More fun if
she'd picked some obscure player and said, that person I could really
hlep.

To be fair, though, Kuznetsova seems to be learning a lot from her.

a year or two ago at Wimbledon Martina said Dokic really needed some
coaching but it seems unlikely she would want to take on that project.
