Serbian youngster Miomir Kecmanovic is the latest ATP player to add a "super coach" to his squad, announcing he will work with former world No. 3 David Nalbandian ahead of the ATP 250 event in Cordoba.

An early rival to Roger Federer, Nalbandian was a Wimbledon finalist in 2002 and reached four other Grand Slam semifinals before announcing his retirement in 2013.


Ranked just below his career-high of world No. 39, Kecmanovic began the new season with a quarterfinal finish in Adelaide and won a round at the Australian Open before traveling to Nalbandian's home country for his next event.

"Look who decided to come back on tour," the 21-year-old wrote on Instagram.

The Serbian first made a splash on the ATP circuit in 2019, when he reached the quarterfinals of Indian Wells as a lucky loser.

As the No. 3 seed in Cordoba, Kecmanovic will play either Thiago Seyboth Wild or a qualifier in his opening round match.
