Well done Andy Murray, and congratulations Amelie Mauresmo

I know very little about tennis, and nothing at all about Amelie Mauresmo, but in a year where the misogyny inherent in sport has been so apparent, I’m delighted that a top sportsman would appoint a female coach, recognising that she could be* the best person for the job and shouldn’t be discounted because she’s a woman.

 

 

 

 

*I say could be rather than definitely is, because we won’t know how successful Murray’s new coach will be until we see his results.
