After splitting with coach Mauricio Hadad, Heather Watson has revealed a new partnership with Diego Veronelli, ahead of the 2014 season. The Argentine has been working with the 21-year-old in London for the past week and the pair will travel to Australia on December 30.
“It’s only been a week and a half, but it’s going really well so far,” said Watson. “I feel some wins I took for granted before,” Watson added. “Now I am thinking ‘You’ve won one, let’s try and win another one and get as many in as you can while you are healthy, while you are playing well’.”
Veronelli has previously worked with Paula Ormaechea and Brazil’s Joao Souza and will be looking to improve on Watson’s game, particularly after her subpar season in 2013. The British No. 3 suffered glandular fever and dropped to World No. 121. She will have to go through qualifying in Melbourne if she is to reach the main draw of the Australian Open.
