Martina Hingis will personally coach Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova throughout the clay-court season, Russia's Sport Express reports.

The 21-year-old Pavlyuchenkova recently won the title in Monterrey, but suffered opening-round losses at the Australian Open, Paris, Dubai, Indian Wells and Miami.  The newspaper said that Hingis will arrive in Moscow to help the 20th-ranked Pavlyuchenkova prepare for Russia’s Fed Cup semifinal against Slovakia on indoor clay.

Five-time Grand Slam winner Hingis has worked with Pavlyuchenkova before as part of the Patrick Mouratoglou Academy coaching staff, but never as a full-time personal coach.
