Laura seeks new coach after split from mentor as Brit prepares for Ivanovic clash
Laura Robson is on the lookout again for a new coach after parting company with Croatian mentor Zeljko Krajan at the start of the Madrid Open.
The exact timing of the split is unclear, but Krajan was initially with her in the Spanish capital for this week's event, which has seen the Wimbledon-based teenager come back to form after a lean spell and earn a place in the third round.
On Monday she scored a career-best victory over world No 4 Agnieszka Radwanska.
Robson has ended the partnership with the current Croatian Davis Cup Captain and one time coach of former world No 1 Dinara Safina, having teamed up with him immediately following last summer's Olympics.
Their time together has seen some eye-catching wins over former Grand Slam champions and entry into the world's top 50 mixed in with inconsistency and less impressive results against lower ranked players.
For her last 16 encounter against former French Open champion Ana Ivanovic she will use the services of vastly experienced Dutch coach Sven Groeneveld, who works for adidas and is available to work with all their contracted players, such as Robson.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-2320920/Laura-Robson-seeks-new-coach-split-mentor-Brit-prepares-Ana-Ivanovic-clash-Madrid-Open.html
