From BBC Sport

As part of the changes sweeping through the Lawn Tennis Association, Kim Clijsters' former coach Carl Maes has been appointed as head of women's tennis.
But having been starved of success for so long in Britain, the Belgian is determined to address the lack of role models in tennis for girls.

"The goal is to promote the girls' game and to make it a lot more sexy than it has been in the past," says Maes.

"Tim and Greg and now Andy have done a great job for tennis in this country, but if I speak to the parents who are actually committed to tennis and are happy to make sacrifices for their children to become a tennis player, they are mostly parents of boys.
 
"We might not have the top-10 player on the women's side like on the men's but I very much see an opportunity there with the appointments of these coaches, and maybe bringing in some top players to inspire the young girls."

Where did the "I" go? lol

I hope a similar talent can be found, but I strongly doubt she will be as nice as Kim.
