Through her official Facebook account, Barbora Strycova announced she has engaged a new coach, David Kotyza, who previously worked with Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova in the past few years. 'Dear fans, I would like to share with you fresh information about my team,' Strycova wrote in Czech. 'I will be coached by David Kotyza, who is a great professional, a willing and precise coach who has done so much in female tennis.

'I had been training with David when I was eighteen, and we both changed a lot. I'm very curious about it. I think it will be a challenge for me and for him. David has had great successes with Petra Kvitova winning Grand Slams, Karolina Plíšková who became the world's number one, and I hope he will be doing well with me. I want the best team around me that will help me improve my tennis. I think now there is no better female coach in the Czech Republic. Lukáš Dlouhý is also part of the team. We are all getting ready for the new season, after Christmas I fly to New Zealand,' said Strycova who will start the 2018 season at the Auckland Open. 

As we said, Kotyza worked with Pliskova, who was criticized by Strycova a few months ago who believed that she had gone behind her back to engage the services of her then-coach Tomas Krupa.
