Dinara Safina has ended her three-year partnership with Croatian Zeljko Krajan and her new coach will be 35-year-old Gaston Etlis from Argentina. The 35-year-old Etlis won four doubles titles in his career, was ranked as high as No.17 in doubles, while his highest singles ATP-ranking was No. 114.
During her cooperation with Krajan, Safina reached the No.1 ranking, played the finals of three Grand Slams (at two French Opens and one Australian Open) and won an Olympic silver medal in Beijing.
Update from Women Who Serve: It could be the case only during the French Open, and Krajan's coaching of Safina could be extended. (photo: Stephane Martinache)
