Nicolas Jarry adds Dante Bottini to coaching staff

Chile's Nicolas Jarry will be working with coach Dante Bottini next year, per Fernando Murciego. Bottini is a well-known and respected coach on the Tour, having coached 2014 US Open runner-up Nishikori for almost a decade.

Nishikori, who has yet to win a Grand Slam or a Masters title, ended his nine-year partnership with Bottini this past October. Bottini will now be hoping to help Jarry achieve his full potential and reach new heights in 2020.

Jarry, 24, enjoyed his best season on the Tour this year despite a bad end to the season. The Chilean claimed his maiden ATP title at the Nordea Open in July after beating Juan Ignacio Londero in the Bastad final. When the ATP list got updated a day after the Bastad final, Jarry rose to a career-high ranking of No.

38 in the world. The Londero win turned out to be Jarry's last one of the season as he hasn't won a match since winning the Bastad title. The Chilean paid the price for his series of disappointing results, having plummeted to No.

77 in the world. Jarry will be eager to make a good start to the new season and leave the disappointing end to 2019 behind him.
