Serbian Ana Ivanovic, who made an early exit from the tournament, is studying some coaching resumes nowadays.

The 21-year-old has left Melbourne Park and having a few days off at an undisclosed location, according to her management, before returning to chilly Europe.

But the tall right-hander's priority will be to secure a full-time coach as soon as possible.

"Being without a coach for so long, it's a little bit tough," Ivanovic said after Friday night's 5-7, 7-6, 2-6 loss to Russian Alisa Kleybanova in the third round.

"You just need some direction sometimes and that's something I felt was missing in my game," she said.

Her manager, Gavin Versi, said Ivanovic was seeking a former player but, understandably, would not mention any names at this stage.
