Two-time French Open champion Sergi Bruguera will join Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's coaching team in 2019 as the Frenchman looks to get back on track following an injury-disrupted campaign.

Tsonga began 2018 ranked in the world's top 15 but having missed most of the season with a knee injury suffered in February, he has dropped to 259th.

The 33-year-old announced on Twitter that he will now be working with Spain's Davis Cup captain Bruguera.

As a player, Bruguera won the French Open in 1993 and 1994 and recently coached Tsonga's compatriot Richard Gasquet.
