Michel Antheunis and Carl Maes will start working with Yanina from the ITF Vancouver tournament in mid-August onwards. Antheunis, who coached Yanina before, will accompany her to all Grand Slams, plus another 15 weeks spread out over the season. Yanina's home base remains the Kim Clijsters Academy in Bree where she trains with Maes. "I've known Michel and Carl for a long time," says Yanina, "We've had nice results in the past. Together, they form the perfect duo to get me back on track."
Yanina and Nicolas Beuque, her previous coach, had decided to end their run together right before this year's Wimbledon. "I am grateful for our time together, but we have to conclude that there hasn't been progress and that it's time for a fresh start," Yanina said at the time. With Antheunis-Maes she's found that fresh start, best of luck to the new team!
