Russell Fuller from the BBC is suggesting that her new management company, StartWing, will play a role in recruiting Jo's new coach, although I'm sure she will want final decision making. Fuller is saying that StarWing helped with the recruitment of Fredde Rosengren and Hilts for Kyle Edmund end of last year, which has been hugely successful for him.

If this was a wishlist situation I would love to see Darren Cahill with Jo but I doubt he is going to split from Simona. I think Jo needs someone who can help her as much with the mental side of her game as with her technique and I think her ability to connect with her next coach is more important than finding a big name to work with.

Yes, he has enough gravitas and experience to get Jo to listen (we know how much she respects Simona). He's also the only one worth listening to on ESPN!

Alas, unless Simona's back injury is longterm (which I hope it isn't) it's a very long shot.

As noted by JonH in the Moscow thread, Jo is trialling with Stan Wawrinka's and Timea Bacsinsky's old coach, Dimitri Zavialoff, who despite his obvious Russian background, is French. Wawrinka is also under StarWing Sports, so it seems they did play a role in lining this up, as Russell Fuller (see above) suggested they would.

"Zavialoff is said to be quiet and studious - perhaps similar in personality to Esteban Carril, who in two and a half years helped Konta move from 150 in the world to inside the top 10."
