After leaving the tennis world confused by not continuing her partnership with Nemanja Kontic, Ana Ivanovic announced a new coach, Dejan Petrovic, who is now on a trial period with the Serbian tennis star. The 36-year-old will accompany Ivanovic during the North American swing and their first tournament together will be the Bank of the West Classic which starts in a week.
