Promising American Madison Keys has split from her 2015 coach Lindsay Davenport, the WTA announced yesterday.

“Madison Keys and Lindsay Davenport are no longer working together. Keys’ agent confirmed,” the WTA Insider tweeted Wednesday. “Madison Keys’ new coach: Jesse Levine. The two know each other well and Levine hit with Keys before her strong run in Charleston this year.”

Keys went 14-4 in Grand Slam play in 2015 highlighted by an Australian Open semifinal which propelled her into the Top 20. She finished No. 18, up from No. 31 from 2014.

The 20-year-old though struggled the second half of the season going just 10-7 post-Wimbledon.

Davenport has duties with the Tennis Channel and her husband and kids. The lefty Levine played tennis at the University of Florida and reached a career-high No. 69 in 2012. He is 28.

RZ Says:

I think Jesse Levine was the guy that Fed would practice with during the off-season to get some hitting practice against lefties.


African Dude Says:

I have seen Jesse play a few times at the Citi Open in DC, formerly known as the Legg Mason Tennis Classic. He seems like a solid dude. I hope the partnership works and Madison can improve on her number 18 world ranking in the new year/season.

So does that mean Jesse is officially retired from the tour because I never saw any official announcement?
