Former Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska announced today via twitter that she and coach Martina Navratilova have parted ways.

Radwanska said in statement, “I just wanted to thank Martina for her time and efforts over these last few months. It was a great experience to work with one of the all-time greats. However we both agreed that as Martina could not commit 100 percent to the project then it was not going to work as a long term partnership. We will stay friends and I wish her all the best in her personal and professional life.”

“I am stepping down as Agnieszka’s part-time coach,” Navratilova said. “I think I underestimated the time it would take to make this a proper and good situation for both Agnieszka and me.”

The split was over Navratilova’s inability to commit to the Polish No. 1, but under the legend Radwanska has been struggling this season.

The 26-year-old has fallen three spots from her 2014 season finish to a current ranking of No. 9. And after suffering her first opening round loss in six months at Stuttgart this week, Radwanska is just 13-11 on the year only twice reaching a quarterfinal in eight WTA events – QFs at Doha, SF at Katowice.

In the interim, Radwanska​ will continue will continue to work with Tomasz Witkorowski.

That’s a relief.


autoFilter Says:

Ugh, I’m disappointed. I was really excited about this partnership and the promise it held.


Colin Says:

Jalep. I think you should explain. Why is it a relief?


jalep Says:

Colin, I apologize. Had spent too much time posting on tennis-x at the moment I read this news and wrote that in a rush.

Next to Simona Halep, Aga.is my other favorite. Last December when the news came out that MartIna would coach her I was excited about it. But watching Aga at Indian Wells was tough. She lacked spirit and was out of sorts, unable to play her natural unique tennis. Sure she needs more
e power if she’s going to win a slam. It was just hard to watch and i had a hunch all was not going well with what Martina was trying to do.

No disrespect meant at all to Martina Navratilova. Their parting statements explained it and I was relieved to hear it.


Matador Says:

Bad both of them. Aga and Navratilova.
understimate, come on, Martina, you thought with part time coaching you bring your expertise to Aga a grand slam material in such a short time! Dont be desilusional!
