Ana has said of her rotating coaches, I know that us girls arent the easiest to coach. Its a strange situationwere the boss. On the mens tour its a bit different because I think for a coach its easier if the guy is the boss. All of a sudden they have a girl who is the boss. It takes a certain ego to be able to accept that. I dont think there are many coaches who are willing to do it. There are a lot of them who try to control a lot (independent.co.uk).
