Kim Clijsters doesn’t love on-court coaching.

“In a way, I also think it’s a little bit of a sign of weakness, or you’re worried or you’re in doubt, at times,” Clijsters said during the WTA Tour Finals broadcast Sunday.

“I just wasn’t a big fan of it. I did enjoy, seeing – if I was up a break, and I could see my opponent call theircoach out on court, I was like, ‘Okay, you need some extra help.’ “
