Greek tennis star Maria Sakkari has added Mark Philippoussis to her coaching staff after he parted ways with Stefanos Tsitsipas earlier this year.
Philippoussis started working with Tsitsipas last summer and their partnership came to an end just before the start of this year’s French Open.
Since then, Philippoussis is now working with Sakkari. They have been spotted together on the courts in Berlin, Germany.
On Wednesday night, the top-ranked Greek female tennis player also shared a photo on Instagram of her and Philippoussis training together at the gym.
Whilst Sakkari is still working with her long-time coach Tom Hill, her new hire comes at a good time ahead of the Wimbledon tournament in July this year.
Philippoussis was once a great tennis player mostly noted for his grass-court prowess. He contested two grand slam finals (Wimbledon and US Open) winning 11 titles and peaking at number 8 in the rankings.
