Azarenka trainer also departs


First coach Michael Joyce left, now Victoria Azarenka’s trainer Ashcon Rezazadeh also has jumped ship.

On Twitter, Rezazadeh put the departure to the “current circumstances”.


Rezazadeh is a 23-year-old Irani-born Brit who played a few Futures events as a young teen. He also has a modeling portfolio.

Before Azarenka, he worked with Dan Evans, the Brit who currently is serving a suspension for a positive cocaine test.

Clearly Rezazadeh not has too many lucky job breaks lately.

(If you’re wondering why the spandex at Wimbledon, we’re told Team Azarenka lost a bet with the boss).
