Angelique Kerber and Dayana Yastremska announce new coaches while it’s still a mystery about Naomi Osaka’s move in this department.
Angelique Kerber and Didi Kindlmann
The German champion announced the partnership with Didi Kindlmann that is a German former professional tennis player with a world no.130 high rank. Didi worked with Madison Keys in 2017 when she reached the final at the US Open, Elise Mertens in 2018, and Ajla Tomljanovic in 2019.
Angelique’s ranking is now just no.20, and she looks forward to working with her new coach to improve her results. She remained titleless in 2019.
Angelique announced the new partnership on Social Media saying:
“As much as I’ve enjoyed my time off, I’m excited to get back into training. Happy to announce that Didi Kindlmann will be joining my team as the new coach! Work starts here, and I‘m thankful for the people in my team that share the same vision moving forward! #TeamAngie”

Dayana Yastremska and Sascha Bajin
Dayana Yastremska, one of the most interesting upcoming players, announced the partnership with Naomi Osaka’s former coach Sascha Bajin. The gorgeous Ukrainian is currently ranked no.22, and with the help of the German, she can definitely break in the top10 next season.
Naomi Osaka still without any coach
There is a mystery around Naomi Osaka about who will be her next coach. The Japanese sensation surprised the tennis fans when she sacked Sascha Baijin soon after she conquered the Australian Open earlier in the year for unknown reasons. Later Osaka had a rather depressing partnership wit Jermaine Jenkins that she ended soon after losing in the 4th round in the US Open. That was the moment of Naomi’s resurrection as she won back to back the home event in Osaka and Beijing.
Her father currently coaches the world no.3, but Osaka confirmed that that will be temporary despite the success they had together in the last few months. We are still waiting for the announcement of a new partnership.
Angelique Kerber’s ranking and performance in 2019
Ranked no.20, Angelique played her last match on the 1st of October when she was defeated by Polona Hercog 6-4 6-2 in the 2nd round in Beijing.
Angelique Kerber’s best performance of this year was reaching the final in Eastbourne and Indian Wells.
Dayana Yastremska’s ranking and performance in 2019
Ranked no.22 (career-high), the Ukrainian played her last match on the 24th of October when she had to surrender to Kiki Bertens 6-4 6-3 in the R in Zhuhai.
This year Yastremska has a 34-22 win-loss record. Yastremska conquered 2 titles in 2019 in Hua Hin and in Strasbourg.
Angelique Kerber and Dayana Yastremska have never played each other.
