Judy Murray has praised her son's decision to hire a female coach as she warned there were not enough young girls playing tennis.
On Andy Murray's decision to appoint former Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo as his coach, Judy said: "It certainly raised awareness and became a huge talking point.
"It definitely shows that if you have the skills, the knowledge and there is a personality fit, there is absolutely no reason why women can't coach at the top end of any sport."
The captain of Britain's Fed Cup side - the international team competition for women tennis stars - also revealed her fears about the lack of young girls playing tennis.
She said: "The things that are trendy for kids to play with nowadays tend to be sedentary things, you sit and twiddle your thumbs or you watch something on a wide screen and that is just a fact of life."
