Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia

Pavlyuchenkova, 21, won the WTA Monterrey title recently but fell at the first hurdle in Paris, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami, as well as at the Australian Open in January.

Russia’s Sport Express has reported that Hingis will head to Moscow to help the world number 20 prepare for the nation’s Fed Cup semi-final against Slovakia.

The two have worked together before, under the Patrick Mouratoglou Academy umbrella, but this will be the first time Hingis aids Pavlyuchenkova as a full-time personal coach.
