Konta Hires New Coach


Johanna Konta will start the new year with a new coach.

The British No. 1 has hired Dimitri Zavialoff as her new coach.

The pair worked together on a trial basis in Moscow last month.

The 27-year-old Konta reached the Kremlin Cup semifinals, falling to eventual-champion Daria Kasatkina, 6-4, 6-3.

Zavialoff is an experienced coach who previously worked with Stan Wawrinka and Timea Bacsinszky.

Konta split with American coach Michael Joyce, who previously coached Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka, following a disappointing 2018 season.

The former world No. 4 finished 26-23 as her ranking dropped to No. 39.
