Anabel Medina Garrigues has indicated she will stop coaching Jelena Ostapenko now that she has been named Fed Cup captain for Spain.

"When I was asked, it was a difficult decision because I was coaching Jelena Ostapenko, who is seven in the world, but this carried more weight," she told Spanish newspaper ABC. "For me, being Fed Cup captain is the maximum."

Medina Garrigues began coaching when she was been sidelined from her own career with injury, and said she plans to return to the tour next season "to finish her career on the court.” She also runs an ITF tournament.

Sergi Bruguera has been named the Davis Cup captain for the country.
