Maria Sakkari hires new coach to return to the top


Maria Sakkari added former coach of legend Venus Williams, David Witt, to her team, after Witt’s coaching came to an end with powerhouse Jessica Pegula two weeks ago.

Witt is the first new coach for the Greek champion since she announced the end of her professional partnership with Tom Hill after six years.

According to, Sakkari and Witt’s alliance hopes to assist the former world No. 3 overcome her current troubles, which include several defeats in recent tournaments.

Witt’s first tournament with the Greek is now taking place at the Indian Wells Masters, played from March 6 to 17, with Sakkari set to face world no. 1 Iga Świątek in the final today.

Sakkari holds the No. 9 ranking for now, with a significant portion of her points coming from the end of the 2023 season.
