PARIS - French number one Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has chosen compatriots Nicolas Escude and Thierry Ascione as his new joint coaches, replacing Roger Rasheed. “The fact that they are two is an advantage as it means I can get different perspectives on my game,” said Tsonga ahead of the Paris Masters tournament, which started on Monday. “They have already proven themselves as far as I am concerned. Thierry has worked very well with all the players he has had in the last few years and helped them progress. I am thinking of Nicolas Mahut and Kristina Mladenovic. “Nicolas has less experience as a coach but he was Fed Cup captain and that is a big plus. In any case it is not so much what he has done as a coach that matters - more what he achieved as a player.”–AFP
