Following an embarrassing double bagel 60, 60 loss Thursday to David Goffin in the Rome third round, Tomas Berdych has fired his coach Dani Vallverdu.
“My results lately have not been what I expected As I am not a tennis player at the beginning of his career I have to act quickly when I feel that I need a change,” Berdych said via Facebook.
Berdych will head into the French without a coach.
Under Valverdu, the 30-year-old hasn’t made the semifinals in his last four Grand Slams and no semis at his last 10 Masters events. And he went just 5-18 vs Top 10 players during that stretch.
During his career, Berdych has made just one career Grand Slam final at the 2010 Wimbledon and won one Masters event at the 2005 Paris Indoors. He has 12 career titles.
