Sharapova week-to-week with Högstedt

“With Thomas … he’s coached a lot against me since and I appreciate that feedback coming back into the team,” she said after losing a tight one to Caroline Garcia in the first round.

“He has a great work ethic. And I’m all for that. I’m not shy of putting in the work.”
