Jo-Wilfried Tsonga reveals huge new coaching addition as he targets comeback
Jo-Willfried Tsonga has announced that Spanish Davis Cup captain Sergi Bruguera will join his coaching team for 2019.
Tsonga had a strong 2017, winning three titles and impressing at the Grand Slams.
However, a persistent knee injury has limited Tsonga to just 12 matches this year. It’s a situation that has seen his world ranking plummet to 259.
Tsonga, though, is back to fitness and apparently raring to again.
I’m happy to announce that Sergi Bruguera will be part of my team in 2019 !
I’m very excited to start working together and to take up new challenges 👊🏽👌🏽🎾

He will join Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, and Grigor Dimitrov for the Brisbane International at the turn of the year, and Bruguera will be with him.
“I’m happy to announce that Sergi Bruguera will be part of my team in 2019,” Tsonga said on Twitter.
“I’m very excited to start working together and to take up new challenges.”
