Sloane Hires coach Paul Annacone on trial basis





Quote:
Paul Annacone, the former coach of Roger Federer and Pete Sampras, is now coaching Sloane Stephens on a trial basis, TENNIS.com has learned.

Annacone recently split with Federer and stated at the time he had not decided what he would do in the future. But the American has been working with Stephens for a few hours a day in Los Angeles, where they both reside.

Annacone coached Federer to his last Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2012, coached Sampras to numerous Grand Slam titles, and headed player development at both the USTA and LTA. He also coached Tim Henman for a stint, but has never overseen a top women’s player as private coach.

The two will work together at least until Stephens leaves for the Australian Open toward the end of December to compete in the Hopman Cup. She will play Sydney the following week and then head to Melbourne to try and defend semifinal points from the 2013 tournament.

This year, Stephens worked with USTA coach David Nainkin, who coached her to the second week of every Grand Slam and to a Top 15 ranking. She is currently ranked No. 12 and is the youngest player in the Top 30. Sources say that while Stephens enjoyed working with Nainkin, she did not want to ask the USTA to allow him to exclusively coach her, as he also works with fellow American Sam Querrey.

Stephens also recently hired Mardy Fish’s personal fitness trainer, Christian LoCascio.

Re: Sloane search for new coach

Really REALLY like this move. Shows to me that she is really motivated to take that next step (which, LBR, means consistently starting to dominate lesser opponents and regularly reach the last 4 of tournaments big and small). Thing is, has Annacone coached a two-handed backhand? That's where Sloane could probably use the most help (in addition to playing more consistently aggressively). Will be curious to see how this all shakes out!

Re: Sloane search for new coach

Ah I love the sound of this obviously, you can't really get a coach of much higher calibre than Annacone so it looks great on paper at least. I really hope their partnership works out but yeah it looks like nothing is concrete at the moment.
Great news though

Re: Sloane search for new coach

Wasn't her coach last year David Nankin. I liked seeing his courtside talks with her during matches. He seemed calm and positive. I guess she needs someone with more experience though maybe.

Sloane definitely hit a home run here. Hopefully, as many have said here, she takes him on full time.
