PARIS - Naomi Osaka has split from her coach Sascha Bajin just weeks after the 21-year-old added the Australian Open to her first Grand Slam at the US Open last year, the Japanese player announced Monday (Feb 11).
"Hey everyone, I will no longer be working together with Sascha. I thank him for his work and wish him all the best in the future," Osaka said.
The coach also took to Twitter to comment on the matter: "Thank you Naomi. I wish you nothing but the best as well. What a ride that was. Thank you for letting me be part of this."
The US based player has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the big time after leaping from 72 in the world to number one in the past 12 months.
