Laura Robson hires Krajan as coach
British teen Laura Robson has hired Zeljko Krajan as her new coach, reports Sports Illustrated’s Beyond the Baseline. Robson has been working with LTA and adidas coaching this year. Krajan is with Robson at the tournament in Cincinnati. Known as an intense coach, Krajan most recently worked with Jelena Jankovic for a brief period and before that, with Dominika Cibulkova and Dinara Safina. "Zeljko was a great coach, but in the end it was not helping me," Cibulkova said last month. "He was just putting too much pressure and with every ball I missed and every match I lost I was just putting myself really down because he was very, very tough. He's very intense all the time. I think me being with him two years is something now I don't know how I could handle it, but it made me maybe tougher in some way. In the end it was not helpful, so after we split, I just felt so much freer on the court, if I do mistake, it doesn't matter."
