Sweeping the court

Jelena Jankovic has entered the Family Circle Cup, which will take place in Charleston March 29-April 6. World number 8 Jankovic won the Cup in 2007 and was the 2013 runner-up. She is the second player to enter the 2014 event; 2013 champion Serena Williams was the first.

Elena Vesnina is blogging from Sofia. It's her first time to write a WTA blog.
Sania Mirza is at it again, thank goodness.

Eugenie Bouchard has parted ways with coach Nathalie Tauziat.

Sad doubles news: The team of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka is no more. Hradecka said that the breakup was Hlavackova's decision: "...she told me she wanted to play with Lucie Safarova next year and focus on singles." The 2013 U.S. Open champions have indicated that they will continue to play together in Fed Cup. Hradecka's new doubles partner is Michaella Krajicek.

Ekaterina Makarova answers a few questions.

Hmmm, well that might be an interesting FC decision if Hlavackova/Safarova are a successful team, and they, Hradecka and Kvitova form the Czech team. I wonder if H/H would still team up in FC then? Maybe Hradecka would just be left off the team?

Ultimately, it will be the coach's decision, I suppose. If all three of them are healthy at the time, it seems Andrea could be the odd woman out. The Czech Republic isn't lacking for good doubles players, that's for sure.
