Daniela Hantuchova


Daniela Hantuchova, Laura Robson and Monica Puig are the latest WTA competitors to announce coaching changes at the start of the 2014 BNP Paribas Open.

Hantuchova is now working with Peter Lundgren, who previously coached Swiss stars Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka, as well as budding Bulgarian talent Grigor Dimitrov. The two-time tournament champion, who is seeded 29th at Indian Wells, fell to American Varvara Lepchenko. She was one of two seeds, with Azarenka being the other, to lose an opening round contest this year in the WTA draw.

Laura Robson withdrew from Indian Wells several weeks ago and has only completed one full match on the professional tour this season due to her wrist injury. Having switched coaches several times in 2013, Robson opted for Mauricio Hadad, who worked with Heather Watson for two years, helping her win her maiden WTA title in Osaka 18 months ago.

Monica Puig is working with Antonio Van Grichen, who previously worked with Victoria Azarenka, Vera Zvonareva and Jarmila Gajdosova.
