After all the drama surrounding the ouster of Conchita Martinez last month, the Spanish Tennis Federation named its new Fed Cup and Davis Cup captains Wednesday.
For the men, it’s French Open champion Sergi Bruguera. For the women, Anabel Medina Garrigues.
The intrigue will center on Medina Garrigues’s future as the coach of Jelena Ostapenko.
Juan Carlos Ferrero took himself out of the running on the men’s side because of his current work with Alexander Zverev. Bruguera is a part-time coach for Richard Gasquet.
But Medina Garrigues is a key reason for Ostapenko’s breakthrough this year.
