Serena Williams says she doesn’t call her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, down to court for advice during matches because she’d rather make her own decisions.
 
“He doesn’t do any coaching at all,” she said. “For me, it’s my moment out there. I just kind of have to really figure out, if I’m losing, a way to win; or if things don’t go right, I have to figure out a different way. It’s a good, mature thing for me more than anything.”
