The latest coaching news comes from former WTA Doubles No.1 Lucie Safarova. Finalist at the French Open in 2015, Safarova will reunite with longtime coach Rob Steckley after 14 months apart. 

"Coach @robsteckley is back!" Safarova said on Instagram. "Looks I’m ready for @australianopen!"

Safarova and Steckley were together just shy of four years, collaborating on some of the Czech veteran's most memorable on-court results along with their share of hilarious YouTube skits - many of which also featured Safarova's doubles partner, Bethanie Mattek-Sands.

To celebrate their reunion, the dynamic duo released a new video breaking down a classic pre-season drill: two cross-court, one down the line - with a cameo from 2010 Roland Garros winner Francesca Schiavone.
