According to her official website, world No. 11 Ana Ivanovic has hired Dejan Petrovic as her new coach. The 36-year-old Petrovic was born in Australia and has previously worked with Novak Djokovic and Jelena Jankovic. Petkovic was the No. 1-ranked junior in Australia and went on to reach a ranking of 116 in the world on the ATP Tour in 2002. He currently owns a tennis academy in Serbia.
Ivanovic, who owns three titles on the season as well as a victory over World No. 1 Serena Williams, split with her coach Nemanja Kontic after Wimbledon when their contract expired. Ivanovic and Petrovic will make their official on-court debut at the Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, California at the end of July
