Maybe Andy Murray is that golden link between the Serbian sisters and success? Together with Andy’s brother Jamie, Jelena Jankovic won her first and only Grand Slam title, the magical 2007 Wimbledon mixed doubles, and today we got the news that Ana Ivanovic will be coached by Nigel Sears, father of Andy’s girlfriend Kim.
Nigel Sears will be Ivanovic’s full-time coach. He has quit his job as Head of Women’s Tennis at the Lawn Tennis Association and will travel with Ivanovic wherever she goes. Remember how important it was for Ivanovic to find a fully-dedicated coach?
"I couldn’t be happier," said Ana. "I’ve admired Nigel for some time now, and I can’t wait to start working with him on court." (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
