Tennis - The role between fathers coaching sons has come under the scanner in recent weeks after the arrest of John Tomic, father of Bernard Tomic. On the women's side, several players are also coached by their partners, husbands or boyfriends, besides their fathers.

And that situation can get pretty tricky as well. World no. 6 Li Na was being coached by her husband before she decided to hire Carlos Rodriguez last August. And the Chinese superstar had some piece of advice on this type of situation.

Speaking to the Tennis Space, Li Na commented, "It’s very tough. You’re living together and your job is also together, on the court. It’s very tough to find the balance between coach and spouse. You both feel a lot of pressure, so if you can, find a separate coach, too – that helped me a lot. We both felt much more relaxed and found life much easier.”

"When you are playing badly on court and you look up at your coach/husband, you see him as your husband. If I ask him to come to the court as my coach, and he says something wrong, I think: ‘You’re my husband, how can you say that?’ Tennis is part of your life so you can’t totally get away from it, you’re working in the day but in the evening, you can cool down and talk about your jobs. But it’s hard. Sometimes, for 24 hours you are talking about tennis. And sometimes when we’re fighting on the court, we don’t talk at home. It’s very tiring.”
