It comes as quite a surprise that Ana Ivanovic decided not to extend her coaching partnership with Nemanja Kontic, after their contact expired following Wimbledon. The split is amicable and came as a result of a mutual agreement.
This is quite a surprise as Ivanovic was always emphasizing how much she enjoyed having a young Serbian team that understands her better and that she enjoys spending off-court time with as well. Also, Kontic led Ivanovic to three WTA titles this year (Auckland, Monterrey, and Birmingham), her best season since her landmark 2008. Moreover, in January’s Australian Open Ivanovic recorded her first victory over Serena Williams and in Rome her first win over Maria Sharapova after seven straight losses. We’ll sure hear more about the split in the coming weeks.
Ivanovic is now in Mallorca with a bunch of friends. Here’s her today’s Instagram update.
