France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga may look to quickly end 18 months of a voluntary coachless existence on the ATP after losing to Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals of the Shanghai Masters.
Tsonga is said to be quietly consulting over a new mentor despite keeping his place in the ranking top 10 during his time on his own.
Speculation centres on footloose American Larry Stefanki, available since the retirement of his last client Andy Roddick. French media have reported that Tsonga is looking to end his single state on the ATP as soon as possible with the goal of breaking through like rival Andy Murray, who won the US Open nine months after taking on former player Ivan Lendl as his mentor.
Tsonga has hovered on the outer edges of the elite, playing the Australian Open final four years ago and three semi-finals at the Slams since 2010.
Stefanki has helped three players to the top of the game over a decade and a half: Chile's Marcelo Rios, Russian Yevgeny Kafelnikov, and Roddick.
