Serena: Coach knew I would return

News, WTA Players

Serena Williams, who made her WTA Tour comeback at Eastbourne’s 2011 AEGON International to much fanfare, admits that her coach waited patiently for her return.

Williams, who missed virtually a year off the professional circuit from 2010 until competing at the 2011 Devonshire Park Wimbledon warm-up event, claims that Sasha Bazhin won’t find a better hitting partner.

According to Williams, Bazhin – her long-term hitting partner and coach – did not seriously consider switching allegiance to coach Serb Jelena Jankovic.

I heard about Jankovic’s interest, but it seems to me that he was not interested to go as he knew that I would return – and it’s unlikely that Sasha would find someone better than me!
