Radwanska hires Dokic's former coach

by: Matt Cronin January 22, 2012

Agnieszka Radwanska is now being coached by Borna Bikic, who is the brother of Jelena Dokic’s longtime boyfriend, Tin, and was once Dokic's coach. Borna Bikic also once coached Croatian player Karolina Sprem, and was also her boyfriend.

Radwanksa has also retained Polish Fed Cup coach Tomasz Wiktorowski. Both Bikic and Wiktorowski are also coaching her younger sister, Usrzula.  Both coaches are with her at the Australian Open. Her father Robert, who coached her from the time she was a child, still works with her at home in Poland but no longer travels with her.

"It was a little bit better for me," she told reporters. "I have some very good results since [her father stopped traveling with her last summer]. I think feel more relaxed. It doesn't matter if it's some changes, sometimes it's for the good. So I think, going to keep that way, because I feel good and I'm playing good. So I think I'm not going to change that."
