Johanna Konta has officially hired Michael Joyce as her new coach.

The new partnership will begin at the Brisbane International later this month. Konta is one of five Top 10-ranked women entered in the Brisbane field.

"Michael is a fantastic coach with a great pedigree and I'm really excited to work with him," Konta said. "2017 has been amazing but I feel like there is so much more to come. Our first tournament together will be the Brisbane International and the plan is for Michael to travel with me full-time through 2018."

The 44-year-old Joyce, who previously coached Maria Sharapova, worked with Victoria Azarenka in 2017.

Konta parted company with Wim Fissette, her coach of less than a year, last month.
