Martina Hingis is enjoying coaching Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova because she says the powerful Russian is a good listener. The five-time Grand Slam champion added that it’s been a learning curve for her because they don't play anything alike.

“She plays like the ones I didn't like to play so much, like Serena or Lindsay Davenport," Hingis said in an interview with Portuguese TV.
