Ivanovic parts ways with Gunthardt

Ana Ivanovic says she needs a full-time coach, and will therefore stop working with Heinz Gunthardt, under whose guidance the 2008 French Open champion began to get her old form back. Gunthardt, who is also lead commentator for Swiss television, will work with Ivanovic through the China Open.

Gunthardt began working with Ivanovic in February of this year, but he has made it clear that he cannot travel with her on a full-time basis.

Interesting development, especially given Ivanovic's recent success. Hopefully, she'll continue her strong results in 2011.

I can understand her wanting a full-time coach. Now she can take her time about hiring the right one.
