Re: News and updates about Victoria Azarenka

(in portuguese)

Google tranlsation:
Came to a close working relationship between Victoria Azarenka and Anthony van grichen. After four years, the Belarusian tennis star, 20, now No. 7 in the world ranking, is no longer coached by the Portuguese coach.

"They were four years we grew up together," said Van grichen yesterday, which was made official with breakthrough Azarenka. "It was a very fruitful, which allowed me to become a well known professional," said the Portuguese coach of 31 years.

The first major success of Victoria Azarenka under the guidance of Van grichen was winning the junior world title. From there on, the career of Belarus was on the rise by 6. Place ranking, the best position of his career, 26 October 2009, reaching total gain of 2.4 million. On the way there have been victories in Grand Slam in Australia and the U.S. Open, still in the junior level, and a win at Estoril Open in 2007, as senior.

Difficulties in communication between coach and player were the basis of the outcome now finished. The fact that the 20-year-old Victoria Azarenka is already a hero in his country have a strong economic conditions and a projection of growth media, were factors that departed from the coach, to the point no longer be able to continue working together. What seemed to happen away not long ago, when Victoria said about Van grichen the following: "Antonio is for me the best coach. We've been together a long time and it helps me with everything I ever needed. We have our difficult times, both on and off the field, but without it I would not have. "
