Simona Halep announced on Wednesday the end of her partnership with longtime trainer Darren Cahill, who helped her reach number one in the world and win two Grand Slams. Halep, who will turn 30 next week, climbed to the top of the women’s ranking for the first time in October 2017. The Romanian won Roland Garros the following year and won the Wimbledon title in 2019. “After six wonderful years of working together, Darren Cahill and I have decided it is time to end our working relationship,” Halep tweeted.
“Thank you D for everything for making me a better tennis player and a better person.”
Australian Cahill took a break from working with Halep in 2019 for family reasons, but stayed in touch with her during this year’s Wimbledon triumph, where she defeated Serena Williams in the final.
The couple met again in 2020 but were largely separated from the Covid-19 pandemic and Halep’s calf injury that excluded them from this year’s French Open and Wimbledon.
She is currently in 14th place after losing in the last 16 of the US Open.
