Tennis - Michael Joyce is the former coach of Maria Sharapova
Former world no. 1 Victoria Azarenka will work with American Michael Joyce as she prepares to make a comeback to the tennis circuit after giving birth to her first child in December. 43-year-old Joyce is a former ATP Tour pro, reaching No. 64 in the rankings in April 1996.
But he is better known as the former coach of Russian Maria Sharapova, another former World No. 1 who makes her comeback to tennis next month from a doping ban. The two worked together from 2004 to 2011, during which Sharapova won two Grand Slam singles titles and reached the world no. 1 ranking.
Azarenka is a two-time Australian Open champion, having won in 2012 and 2013, and is expected to make a comeback for the American hardcourt summer.
