Paris:

France's tennis federation says Aravane Rezai will work with coach Alexia Dechaume in the buildup to the French Open.

The 24th-ranked Rezai has been without a coach for several weeks and the federation says it wants to support a player "who is currently living through hard times."

Rezai was part of the French team relegated from the Fed Cup World Group for the first time after losing to Spain 4-1 over the weekend.

The federation says Rezai showed she "hasn't lost her talent at all" against the Spaniards and decided to provide her with a coach and a physical trainer to prepare for the French Open from May 17-June 5.

Rezai has won four WTA titles but hasn't advanced past the third round at a tournament this season.
