Johanna Konta adds Maria Sharapova's ex-coach Michael Joyce to team

The Belgian has since taken up a new role with Angelique Kerber, the former world No 1.

The British tennis star split with Fissette in late 2017.

Johanna Konta has confirmed the appointment of Michael Joyce as her coach for the 2018 season.

He has most recently worked with Victoria Azarenka and will be in Konta's camp for the Brisbane International, which begins on January 1.

"Our first tournament together will be the Brisbane International and the plan is for Michael to travel with me full time through 2018".

H&R Block (HRB) Announces Earnings Results, Beats Expectations By $0.01 EPS
H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB ) is 9.7% above its 200-day moving average, providing a measure of resistance for long positions. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 88.92% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.

"Michael is a fantastic coach with a great pedigree", said Konta.

Jobs with top-10 players aren't that easy to come by - despite the increasing turnover from year to year.

Michael Joyce was a moderate player on the men's tour, reaching a high point of No 64, but he made his name by coaching Maria Sharapova for almost seven years at the high point of her career.

Given Azarenka's well-publicized custody issues, which seem a long way from resolved and are keeping her off the court indefinitely, Joyce had to consider his options. The successful partnership ended abruptly after Konta narrowly missed out on a place in the WTA Finals in Singapore following a run of five straight defeats.
