Canada’s Aleksandra Wozniak has announced that she has hired Nathalie Tauziat as her new head coach ahead of 2014. Tauziat, a former Wimbledon finalist, has also coached top Canadian female, Eugenie Bouchard, during the past two years before moving on.
“I respect Nathalie a lot as a coach,” Wozniak told Open Court. “She was No. 3 in the world, and no one thought she’d get to such a high level. On the physical side she wasn’t extraordinary, and even as far as the tennis … Her game evolved really well, but it was all about her.”
The World no. 282 finished the season losing four out of five matches, including going winless in her last two tournaments in Beijing (loss to Sloane Stephens) and Osaka (loss to Kristina Mladenovic). Wozniak finished her 2012 season at no. 43 but dropped over 175 places in 2013 and will be looking to make a comeback with the latest addition to her team.
