On-court coaching would be great for tennis. Coaches bring the best of out of a player, and if fans get the best of each player, there will be more exciting matches.

The athletes show emotion on the court, but fans don't really get a true sense of their personality. If coaching were allowed on court, we could really see how fiery these competitors are on the court. Are they silent? Are they angry? Do they crack jokes in tight spots? All things fans would find out in the heat of battle.

Some top talent like Novak Djokovic would be open to on-court coaching:

I mean, we're probably one of the only, maybe only global sport that doesn't use coaching during the play. Even golf, individual sport, you have caddies that you communicate with throughout the entire course. So why not here as well?

Solitude is one of the best aspects of tennis. Players are all alone on the court. There is no safety net. There is only you and your opponent giving it everything you got for a victory. In-match coaching would add an unnecessary element that would eliminate that solitude, and put some matches in the hands of coaches rather than the players. When there is a result in tennis, there is no doubt the victory or defeat can all be accredited to the player. Add in on-court coaching, and now fans don't know who to credit. On-court coaching would be more trouble than it's worth.

When the one of the greatest players ever speaks, people should listen:

You can look over to your coach for comfort and support, but other than that, I think tennis should be one of those unique sports where you don't get coaching.
