Henin to start coaching career with Svitolina?

ABU DHABI • A new tennis supercoach could emerge next year, as world No. 19 Elina Svitolina revealed that she has been working with seven-time Major champion Justine Henin during her off-season training in Abu Dhabi.

"We've been practising a little bit," the Ukrainian told Sport360. "An agreement has yet to be reached for the 2016 season. We'll know about it a bit later."

Former world No. 1 Henin, 33, had previously stated that becoming a coach is "tempting". Should the partnership materialise, she will join Amelie Mauresmo, Martina Navratilova and Lindsay Davenport as female Grand Slam champions that became coaches.
