Mirka often travels around the globe to support her husband, having been a former tennis player herself, so it’s expected the Dubai Open 2019 will be no different.

“So she helps him in taking very important decisions. She has played a huge, huge part in his success.”
The former coach also reflected on the Swiss tennis player as a parent.
Mr Annacone said: “It helps him to play tennis because he relaxes a little bit.
“He handles the two things very well.”
