Golovin may get a new coach

Tatiana Golovin is working with Loic Courteau, and later in the year, they will make a decision about extending this relationship. Courteau, of course, is the man who coached Amelie Mauresmo for six years, guiding her to two the world number 1 spot, as well as victories in two majors.

Does anyone recall who was coaching Golovin when she made very significant improvements in her game? I don't. Whoever it was, s/he did a great job, and Golovin looked like she was about to do something big...and then the ankle got messed up again...and you know the rest.

I know she was with Mats Wilander for a time, not sure if that was when she improved drastically. I think, in any case, he is a good coach to come back from injury with.

Tati has said before that she would love to work with Loic when Amelie is done with him. He has already coached her in the past through France's Fed Cup teams and in one of the US tounraments.

Yes, David, it was Wilander. He did wonders for her already good game.

I didn't know that, Dani. We'll see what happens.
