British No.1 Johanna Konta will look to Maria Sharapova’s former coach Mike Joyce to regain the form which took her to world No. 4 in July.
Joyce was part of Sharapova’s team between 2004 and 2011, during which time she won the 2006 US Open, 2008 Australian pen and became world No. 1.
He also worked with two-time Slam winner and former world No. 1 Victoria Azarenka earlier this year.
“I’m delighted to confirm that Michael Joyce will be joining my team for 2018,” Konta told the WTA. “Michael is a fantastic coach with a great pedigree and I’m really excited to work with him. 2017 has been amazing but I feel like there is so much more to come.
