Tennis - Former world no. 1 and five time grand slam champion Martina Hingis will be the new coach of Russia Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
Pavlyuchenkova and Hingis are both associated with the Patrick Mouratglou Academy. The Russian is currently ranked no. 20 in the world after winning her third career title in Monterrey last weekend. She also reached the finals of Brisbane in early January losing to Serena Williams there but suffered some early losses after that.
Pavlyuchenkova commented "Now I’m starting my collaboration with Martina Hingis and we are going to try all the clay court series. She is coming to Moscow this week to help me for Fed Cup.”
Pavlyuchenkova is part of the Russian Fed Cup team that takes on Slovakia in Moscow this weekend.
Hingis has also been working with one of the other players at the Mouratglou Academy - Daria Garilova.
