Testimonial from Elena Baltacha – Former WTA singles high 49 and British # 1
Sarah Coles was a member of my support team during the 2009/10 WTA Montreal tournaments. She has a very good understanding of athlete support elements, understanding the physiological and nutrition aspects to a high level. At times and when needed she could also extent her support to on court feeding. As a previous competing player she also understands the broader needs of a touring player and also delivered the elements very well. She also has the ability to work as a team member and worked very well under the lead of my head coach Nino Severino during the 2010 tournament.
