Caroline Garcia has reunited with coach Bertrand Perret, the man who helped her achieve her career-best season in 2022.

The pair split last season before the WTA Finals, which Garcia coincidentally won for the biggest title of her year, and after several months they have decided to work together again.

"Why we split up, why we come back, it's part of the past," Garcia told WTA Insider from Stuttgart. "But it's a good chemistry between the two of us, and he understands very well my aggressive game style. He's open-minded to make me train very inside the court or to make me return in that position.”

Garcia’s unique brand of tennis was a sensation last season, as she fully committed to first-strike tennis with the help of Perret. To be fair, that has always been the tennis she wanted to play, but as injuries and doubts crept in she slipped into a more passive – and less effective game style.

Garcia isn’t blazing quite the trail that she did last season, but she’s still winning at an impressive clip. The World No.5 fell to Anastasia Potapova on Friday at Stuttgart to fall to 18-9 on the season.

"It's paying off,” she said of her work with Perret. “Now we are just focused on the present and what can we do and what can we improve for the future."
