    Former world number one tennis player Pam Shriver60, revealed last year that she was involved in a damaging, intimate relationship during her career.

    Shriver told the New York Times that he had his former coach Don Candy’s have sex with. It all started when Shriver was only 17 years old and Candy was 50 years old at the time.

    – I still have feelings for Don. Our relationship was long and inappropriate. He cheated on his wife. Still, I loved him. When I was growing up as a teenager, he should have been a safe adult,” Shriver said.

    Shriver has raised the issue. He hopes that young tennis players would not be forced into intimate interactions with coaches. At the same time, he hopes that the problem will not be made fun of.

    – I have seen how many generations of female players have experienced exactly the same as me. Our culture has not condemned the problem. That has to change, Shriver said For the Sydney Morning Herald.

    – The WTA must provide a safe environment for female players. I would hope that the four biggest tournaments (Australian, French and US Open and Wimbledon) would play a responsible role.
