Nick Kyrgios has reportedly found a new coach in former World No. 4 Sebastien Grosjean

  • Kyrgios may have found his next coach
  • Aussie reportedly working with former No. 4 Grosjean

Nick Kyrgios and his long-time search for a coach may have come to an end, with French former World No. 4 Sebastien Grosjean reportedly working with the Australian on a part-time basis.





French sporting publication L’Equipe has reported that Kyrgios has been seeking out Grosjean’s expertise since the Miami Masters, and that the pair would be working together at this week’s Rome Masters.

Kyrgios, who’s participation in Rome is under a bit of doubt due to a hip injury that surfaced in Madrid last week, has been operating without a coach since parting ways with Todd Larkham just prior to Wimbledon in 2015.

Since then, Kyrgios has formed a close relationship with Lleyton Hewitt, with the two-time major champion and current Australian Davis Cup captain acting as a mentor of sorts over the last couple of seasons.

However many experts believe Kyrgios needs a constant voice in his ear if he is ever to fulfil his seemingly unlimited potential. It remains to be seen whether Grosjean is that voice, especially considering the 38-year-old doesn’t want to travel full-time on tour, but it certainly is a start, with Kyrgios tentative in the past about employing a coach to join his team.

Kyrgios captured three ATP titles last season without a coach, and has defeated World No. 2 Novak Djokovic twice in 2017, with a run to the Miami Masters semi-finals (losing a three set thriller to Roger Federer) the other highlight of his season to date.

The 22-year-old Kyrgios returned to the tour last week in Madrid after attending his grandfather’s funeral in Canberra a few days before. Kyrgios defeated Marcos Baghdatis and Ryan Harrison in straight sets before being blown away 6-3 6-1 by eventual champion Rafael Nadal in the third round.

Grosjean was a tremendous player during the early and mid 00s before retiring in 2010, reaching a career-high of World No. 4 and semi-finals at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. He also made the 2001 Tennis Masters Cup final in Sydney, falling to World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt.

A winner of four ATP World Tour titles, Grosjean used to coach fellow Frenchman Richard Gasquet before they split at the end of last year.
