Saw a blurb in a recent issue of SI that there is some 14 year old German
tennis prodigy whose father has hired Jim Pierce as her coach.  Assuming the
girl stars playing pro events, how does the WTA's ban on old Jimbo fit here?

And there is a column about him in today's (2/2/95) New York Times.
Not very flattering .....   and it does mention this new
   coaching thing.

I heard Jim was fired when the girl found out he couldn't actually
*attend* tournaments.

He received a two month contract.  When they were up, the contract wasn't
renewed.  He's out of a job again.

Doesn't matter:  he only lasted a month, and then was fired.
